    Chill out

    If you've had a rough Monday, check out the hour-long BBC Radio 2 documentary called "Moments in Love" -- an aural history of chillout and ambient music. You'll get a great dose of early pioneers like Tangerine Dream, Brian Eno, and Erik Satie, along with more recent artists like The Orb and Nightmares on Wax. The entire playlist is posted online.

    Conversely, if you've had a very easy start to your week, then you deserve a challenge. Grab some mp3 files from The Wire magazine's online gallery. You'll find artists like Autechre, Farmers Manual, and Kid 606. Great tracks but, yeesh, good luck.
