feel guilty about doing 2 hours in 2 weeks off.
stop it i say!
0 hours in 2 weeks off
That would probably drive me insane.
along those lines, how about boards of canada, god is an astronaut, four tet et al... sigur ros also tends not to intrude too much, cos the words dont make any sense so as not to derail your train of thought...
as i say i listen to everything from mogwai and mono to 65daysofstatic and pelican when working.
Stars of the Lid
Message to Bears
are all very calm and chilled, mostly instrumental. Ambient/Acoustic/damn lovely.
by Jonny Greenwood does the trick.
There Will Be Blood OST is good too!
throw open my back door and listen to the sounds of nature.. the birds, the buzzing of bees, the sirens, the helicopters landing a mile away, the rumbling planes coming in to heathrow(new and improved with terminal five, for all your holidaying needs)
yeah it's fun. but it works a treat
listen to Geogaddi by Boards of Canada a lot, especially when revising for maths exams.
work for me
cause of 'music is math'??
there's something about the time signatures that helped me concentrate though.
PRAM I would wholeheartedly recommend for this purpose of revision, which I have thus far not got round to. Good luck to us all.
Here's a muxtape that I made to do my revisings. It's not so... ambient. More... fun.

It does feature Mark Lawrenson! And the voice of David "Salad Fingers and Jerry Jackson" Firth! Plus I made reference to "Rudebox" by Robbie Williams in the title. Enjoy.
*misses the muxtape thread with style*
boards of canada (as others have said)
the octopus project
my bloody valentine
explosions in the sky
perhaps try Terry Riley, John Cage, Steve Reich or Francis Dhomont.
Also, if you like this slow, mostly instrumental stuff maybe Tortoise, The Books or Slint, off the top of my head.
i've been trying to get the terry riley album - rainbow in curved air?? i really like the whole minimal classical thing so i will check out those other things.
have been listening to tortoise a lot too.
surely you'd swape Architecture in Helsinki with I'm From Barcelona, or have I been listening to the wrong songs?
the microphones now- think i need more high tempo. obv boards of canada is my favourite music ever. stars of the lid i often listen to to sleep. gregor samsa - beautiful but words. i really want to check out johnny greenwood - just trying to find it at the mo. holy fuck am seeing tomorrow night. sigur ros again - great stuff but i know it too well. spazz, scholastic deth etc. sound like they're not what i'm looking for. xiu xiu and architecture in helsinki - again too many words.
stuff like trans am / the field - more up tempo - energy giving stuff????
But I find listening to music with a good beat great when Im revising, maybe its the monotonous of it. So I like Simian Mobile Disco or Daft Punk, just on quietly.
Alternatively, Portishead and Kraftwerk are both great.
If you want more relaxed stuff, classical music is always good, the There will be blood OST is beautiful, or I really like revising to Devendra Banhart or Bright Eyes-Im wide awake its morning
Explosions in the Sky,
Oh wait thats for sex :/
According to Dirty Sexy Money anyways.
low's 'songs for a dead pilot'
but revision never seems to go that well so maybe its not really working...
Ex slowdive members form an alt-country band, record an album with lots of pretty female vocals and slide guitar. Bam! One of the best records of the 90's.
Very nice to revise to.
I revised for one set of exams to Survivor by Destiny's Child on loop. I did okay.
