Post some good music to study to...
Getting around that time where people have a lot of midterms coming up. I got one each the next two days. Some music definitely helps me and many others focus on studying better. Post your personal faves.

I'll start

Definitely EITS. Also, Eluvium's Copia.

The only music I've ever studied to has been by Explosions In the Sky and Sigur Ros.

Already said, but can't be stressed enough: EITS

I'll throw Mogwai in there, as well.

^ this, and also This Will Destroy You. Instrumental post-rock in general, really. It's relaxing and helps you think. But when I'm not in the mood I'll put on some Bon Iver or City and Colour.

godspeed you! black emperor

"sleep" and "rockets fall on rocket falls" especially.

Fruit Bats, Delta Spirit, Yeasayer (although some of their earlier work is a little too experimental so it can be distracting), The Lumineers, anything last.fm recommends that sounds like any of those bands...

Last winter during midterms I was really into studying with Now, Now -- as well as Lydia's Illuminate, like you've already posted.
The new Freelance Whales album that streamed on NPR yesterday was a pretty solid study choice as well (it's called Diluvia).
