Go to the lake, chill at the dacha, watch the flowers grow, and relax. Here’s a list of musical choices guaranteed to please, in no particular order.
Zero 7: When it Falls (not talking about the beer on the carpet)
Air: Moon Safari (give it a few tries-one of the best)
Morcheeba: Who Can You Trust? (good question, eh)
Love & Rockets: Sweet FA (hard to find, try Amazon for used)
Wilco: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (aka the Hillbilly OK Computer)
Thievery Corporation: Mirror Conspiracy
Tosca: Suzuki or T.A.C.
The Beatles: Abbey Road (as fresh, original, and chillin' as the day it was released)
Radiohead: OK Computer (or anything by Radiohead)
Cat Power: You are Free
Note: So what is a dacha, you ask? It's very easy to explain. It's just a cabin--sometimes a shack. But it is difficult to understand that it's not just a cabin and much more than a shack for most. This is the place to escape from the rash and the problems of a city. The place where kids grow up like grass...a resort and a slavemaster…a pleasure and a disaster...a lifestyle... a sweet curse.
