I'm searching for bands/albums that are for the relaxing mood. I only found the Freelance Whales. Can someone suggest that kind of music? Or even a different one but a relaxing type of music.

freelance whales is a good choice. it depends on if you want the cool kind of chill or the kind of morose kind of chilling. anyways most folk music is pretty good to chill to, especially iron and wine, bon iver, and sufjan stevens.

if you want something different to chill to, try some chillwave (gay name for a genre I know) but it is fun to chill to, if you know what i mean

Boards of Canada-roygbiv. anything BoC really.

I think you need to look up Pelican. Give them a try for a few songs, they get heavy at times but mostly chill all instrumental.

City of Echos being my favorite album (also a good song)
