You need more KKB in your life.
the whole 'people who can eat people are the luckiest people in the world album' by andrew jackson jihad
I thought this album was a little too 'edgy' although I still enjoyed it. I prefer Christmas Island though.
The Cure - The Head on the Door
I listen to pop rock - like Weezer or early Foo Fighters - which, sure is kind of lame but there's something inherently soothing about simple pop music because it's assertive enough to keep your attention but simple enough that it can be listened to passively.
That or something downtempo like Twoism.
Not sure what your taste is, but I have two albums for you. They're both rather engaging if you sit and listen to the different parts and instruments/sounds being used. Tons of hummable melodies in these albums too.
Paul McCartney - Ram
Mort Garson - Plantasia
They're my two favorite escape albums.
