At first, the whispery, rustling sounds associated with autonomous sensory meridian response—or ASMR—might seem a little out there. But there’s a reason it’s become such a phenomenon. Even if the tracks here don’t trigger ASMR’s fabled tingle—a sensation that runs from the scalp down the neck, into the shoulders and beyond—they capture a focus and intimacy that can serve as a grounding force in a chaotic world. Whether you’re here for close listening and meditation or just to scratch the itch of curiosity, we hope you’ll find something that runs a little deeper and leaves you feeling calm, curious and alert. Our editors update selections regularly, so if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
