All time fav.
That Beck tune is a fucking classic, that album is a classic (miles better than Odelay imo) (though Odelay is still a great record)
Here's a couple of my picks
Hard to beat these back to back
Also the semi-titular track from the rarest Canadian record ever released:
There really wasn't much in the way of good chill stoner music after 1990 or so that wasn't electronic. Stoner metal sure, and all sorts of electronic music, but outside of completely fringe, underground stuff there's really not much carrying this kind of musical traditon. I blame jam bands for killing it. Also that's around when the first generation of people who grew up listening to music recorded to click tracks became adults. You noticed it in jazz, too, modern jazz is basically conservatory classical music now.
I could post this shit (old stoner music of all sorts) all day, it was what I was the most deep in to during the late 2000s when I was working at a used record shop AND had a job doing back-end research work for an industry leading "algorithmic" music recommendation company (because one way or another that stuff is being done by humans, they just mediate it with really simple algorithmic stuff so that they can pay us less just like how "machine" translation gets a lot of its data from Mechanical Turk day laborers, but that's a whole different thread that's far less chill than this one) so I was pretty much immersed 24/7 in learning about new bands, with a special focus on about 1963-1978). Posting mostly classics here though, they're classic for a reason.
i'm very fond of guitar stoner (ugh...) music, and this is definitely my favorite track.
...not sure why that's not embedding properly. I did the media/media thing...
