While it may be one of the lesser concerns when preparing to have sex, music can play a role in making or breaking the mood. Of course, if you spend half the evening combing through your vast record collection, and the only sound you’re likely to hear is that of your lover walking out the door.
Boinkology wants you to get laid, so we’re taking the guesswork out and giving you our own handpicked selections of the latest and greatest new tracks to download and get down to. Every Friday, Camille Acey brings you BoinkMusic: music you don’t know, but should definitely be fucking to.
Sometimes though the mood is right, the conditions are not superb for getting it on. Recently it’s been freezing in my bedroom and though I know the radiator is on (I’ve touched it, it’s hot!) it doesn’t stop my sheets from feeling icy cold as I slide into bed. Chattering teeth might be adorable to others, but it doesn’t make this boinkologist feel her sexiest. So at times like this I find it helps to have a chill makeout song in the arsenal to help warm things up; I think this one should do the trick.
Specimen: Phosphorescent – A Picture of Our Torn Up Praise (Dead Oceans)
Description: With a revolving cast of musicians, Phosphorescent (aka Thomas Houck) has created a sparse and almost a cappella track featuring a dozen echoey voices all singing in beautifully spooky harmony.
Hypothesis: Turn on this track and you should soon be in a very hot place.
