Outer space? What about inner space?

Chillin' at the Poolside

How does Poolside.fm pump out free music on a website, a Mac app and an iPhone app?

Deep down in side, I feel like they're doing something with my email address that I might like. On the other hand, their privacy policy claims they respect my privacy.

In any case, this is one time I was happy to register, because not only do I get a lot of great music, but also the ability to create a list of favourites. I've got 16 so far.

They have five channels: default, Indie Summer, Hangover Club, Tokyo Disco and Friday Night Heat. As you can tell, this is music to party with.

The exception is my favourite, Indie Summer (and maybe Hangover Club). It's dreamy and spacey. Chill. It transports you away from your troubles.

They say the music is "lovingly curated with the sole purpose of lifting your spirits."

It took awhile to get used to the idea of positive music during these troubled times. Now hardly a day goes by when I don't accept this gift.
