|Great Study Music|
School sucks, and as a science major I've got quiet the load. Here are some sick tunes that are
great for listening to while hitting the books.
|1|| ||Thrice |
The Alchemy Index
All four of these element themed eps were defiantly a different direction for the once post-hardcore band, Thrice, to take. l'll admit, at
first I wasn't at all excited about this new sound, but over time, I was able to see the true artistry that was necessary to create such a
diverse and emotional set of albums. Each and every volume actually sounds like the element that is meant to be portrayed, which
increases the appeal two fold. Great background music for any occasion, including late night cramming.
|2||The Butterfly Effect|
Final Conversation Of Kings
Aussie powerhouse "The Butterfly Effect" showed experimentation at its best with their third full length album. Instead of simply
chugging away at melodic riffs, which worked exceptionally well in the past, this time TBE went for a more progressive rock vive. This
payed off exceptionally, and the result was beyond anything the band had achieved before. The horns integrated into the sound in
absolutely mind blowing.
|3||This Will Destroy You|
Possibly my favorite Post-Rock band, This Will Destroy You's first EP takes you on an incredible sonic journey full of some of the most melodic
rock instrumentals I've ever heard. Suddenly all the pre-exam stress just melts away upon playing this epic set of musical masterpiece.
These Hopeful Machines
While I hardly consider myself a fan of electronic music, this album stuck out to me. At 110+ minutes in length, this album is perfect for long
study sessions. While the instrumentals may become quite complex at times, which is annoying when attempting to concentrate of the
chemistry book in front of you, for the vast majority of its duration, the smooth vocals and beats meld into the background and cease to
|5||Goo Goo Dolls |
Dizzy Up The Girl
oh, the 90s. Back in an era when, excluding boy bands, mainstream music wasn't such a pile of horse shit. Dizzy Up The Girl brings me back to my
early childhood, helping me forget those tuition loans I'll still be paying off ten years from now. Thank you Washington State for raising tuition YET
About time for a study break? Pop in DH's best album (imo) and relieve some frustration. Warning, may cause obnoxious roommates to
|7|| ||Sigur Ros|
Sometimes deciphering lyrics can be distracting when studying, thats why its occasionally nice to listen to some Icelandic dude babble incoherently
in some made up language for a good hour. No disrespect to them though, Sigur Ros is overflowing with talent and inspiration. The atmosphere
Takk creates will linger in the room long after the final song is finished.
|8||Jimmy Eat World|
Chase This Light
As another band I grew up on, Jimmy Eat World will always hold a special place in my heart and study playlist. These guys have
improved exponentially since their self titled release, and Chase This Light continues this trend.
Because why not!!
|10||30 Seconds to Mars|
30 Seconds to Mars
An epic album to psych oneself up for a brutal ass-whooping in the exam room.
