Why do i heart these ambient tracks? well on the one hand it's hard to say. Why does anyone like anything really? especially songs that could so easily pass off as background music in a doctor's office waiting room. Ambient music is cool, and this is where I prove it to you. It doesn't roar out of the gate, it builds and takes shape, it gets into grooves, it has these barely audible subtle textures, it reminds you of something from your childhood even though you swear it's the first time you've heard it. It makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

Don't know if all of these song would be textbook "ambient", some might be post-rock or downtempo or electronic or chillwavVve but I like them and maybe you will too. Try 'em on for size while you're surfing reddit, it all might just click.
