I responded to a post about chants and music to help raise energy (for hausofsageandcrystals & ace-of-pentacles)before or during practicing magic, and I thought instead of just helping that person, I’d just make a master post to help anyone who might be looking for a list like this.
Each artist is listed here with a link to an example of their music… I would 10/10 recommend all of these artists to anyone with a taste for the medieval/pagan/witchy feel. I will do my best to define the genre of music they all fall under for you guys.
since it’s finally starting to feel like winter outside, I put together some songs to listen to when the days get darker and the weather colder. a mix of alternative, indie folk, and acoustic.

While most KDrama OSTs contain at least one or two songs I like, this list is reserved for those soundtracks that not only perfectly complement their dramas, but I enjoy enough to listen to, in full, on repeat.
Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that the soundtrack to this hot mess of a drama is one of the most iconic in KDrama history. If don’t sing-scream “almost paaaaaraaaadiiiiiiiiiiiiiise” every time you hear it are you really even a KDrama fan?
Certainly one of the more English-heavy OSTs I’ve heard, although I think that matches well to a drama that is very Western in a lot of ways. Soft, bright and feather-light, this soundtrack almost sounds like it could belong in Life Is Strange.
Say what you will about the drama itself, there is little fault to find in its choice of music. Perfectly matched to the tone of the drama, with an indie-ness (or maybe just the presence of Tearliner) that is reminiscent of the Coffee Prince soundtrack of years before. Which brings me to #1….
The Best Drama should have The Best Soundtrack, right? Luckily for Coffee Prince, it’s OST is able to stand on own legs as a masterpiece. Equal parts uplifting and poignant, every track is perfectly complements the raw emotion of this masterfully made drama.
asked by anonymous (hey anon thank you for the request! i hope you have a good time listening to this. the playlist it’s full of acoustic songs and some chill r&b so just make a hot coffee, put on some old clothes and enjoy your day 🍂🌹🌿)

Sometimes your love is so pretty I just want to sink in Sometimes your heart, oh its so pretty I just want to live there
Subject matter: Love is as powerful as having the physiological impact on the body as the drug valium, sometime so precious one wishes they could bottle it up and consume at will. Sound: Minimalist indie folk with psychaelic and dreamlike currents.
