My favourite artists include Radiohead, Beach House, Belle & Sebastian and Bon Iver. I also listen to a lot of classical stuff, and jazz. Lately I've been digging more electronic/synth stuff like Aphex Twin and Suzanne Ciani.
I have never heard of Boards of Canada. I will be checking out their music to get a feel of their flow. Jazz is definitely a great choice especially when you working, but I've also never listened to lofi jazz. I have been listening to a lot of R&B and noticed the shift when compared with 90s.
