Finals Week...

And so begins that bleak and hellish week long period that comes around once a year (actually it's twice now since college classes are only a semester long). So instead of digs, this is just a list of albums that I've been listening to whilst studying.
1Scale The Summit
Carving Desert Canyons

Ridiculously melodic instrumental metal...It's a pretty sweet album to just listen to by itself as well.
Hymn To The Immortal Wind

If it's loud enough I can't help but pay attention to it, but if it's at just the right volume it helps me concentrate.
3Explosions In The Sky
The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place

It's kind of a boring album tbh but it's great background music for writing papers/speeches.
4 Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To

I tried to study to F#A#?, but it didn't work out so well. This album did for whatever reason.
5Brian Eno
Ambient 4: On Land

6Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
Live at the Quick

If you take out a few of the oddball tracks, it's a pretty relaxing listen.
7Daft Punk

Not really an album I study to. It's more of a preparatory album...gets me pumped up I guess.
8Frozen Silence
Frozen Silence

Pianos and acoustic guitars...awesome.
9 Ricardo Cobo
Brouwer: Guitar Music, Vol. 1 - Estudios Sencillos, Tres Apuntes & Cancion de Cuna

Classical guitar. Ricardo Cobo is an ace player, Brouwer's compositions are awesome, and Cobo's interpretations are pretty interesting. Again, at the right volume, it somehow helps me concentrate.
10Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports
