Katatonia have been teasing us a bit for their upcoming "remix" record Dethroned and Uncrowned. I use the term "remix" lightly here, because it's more a complete and total re-imagining of their 2012 record Dead End Kings. Are you ready to get mellow?
What you're going to want to do at this time is drop everything you're doing (which understandably may include telling your office's superiors to momentarily shove it) and stream Dethroned and Uncrowned below.
I've found this album best listened to through headphones; something about the acoustic intimacy they've done with this record up close and personal really grabs my attention, though I'm sure it sounds equally amazing blasted! Everything about the record is good, but if you're looking for a quick fix then absolutely go with either "The Parting" or "Buildings." You'll be shocked. Don't forget to catch Katatonia on tour with Cult of Luna next month as well!
