I'm jumping into 1st year at uni and suddenly rocking out isn't viable when summarising articles on liberalism. Seems like gurgling, bubbling electronics or the mellowest of mellow alt-rock might start to rule the roost. Thus far the following have kept me well in reading/writing (though I drift off to sleep now and again):
Boards of Canada - Geogaddi
Kraftwerk - Trans-Europe Express
CFCF - Continent
J Dilla - Donuts
Darkstar - North
Luke Abbott - Holkham Drones
Galaxie 500 - On Fire
Panda Bear - Person Pitch
FaltyDL - Love Is A Liability
But I've found even calm records like the new Warpaint, Portishead and In Rainbows to be too distracting. Lyrics just seem a no-no in most cases.
So, any recommendations? This kind of music isn't necessarily my favourite but it creates a better work atmosphere to be honest. And what do you like to stick on when tryna get stuff done? Can you work with heavy beats/riffs?
