This Playlist is the Ultimate Remedy for Your Mid-Sem Crisis

mid-sem crisis

Is your PC currently perched on a work desk covered in books, highlighters, empty cups of coffee and/or Redbull? Then we both know that, you my friend, are in need for some desperate chill time. Assignments and tests come and go (way too many times tbh), but a way to make them less harrowing? Now that’s something you don’t come across every day.
We’ve put together a playlist that will make this tasking time of the semester, just a tad bit easier to deal with. Listen to it as you work or use it to make your breaks worthwhile, we gotchu fam. This is how it goes:

  1. Perth – Bon Iver
    Internals around the corner? Allow Bon Iver to rid you of all the unnecessary anxiety. Founded by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon in 2007, Bon Iver is an American folk band that exists to give you all the right feels.
  2. Take Me Somewhere Nice – Mogwai
    Mogwai is a Scottish post-rock band that has been taking its listeners to the nicest places through its music, since 1995. Use this song to escape to a world devoid of stressful assignments.
  3. Electric Indigo – The Paper Kites
    You might know The Paper Kites from their song Bloom. Give this song a listen while you try to piece back your brain after completing that horrible, horrible assignment.
  4. Drive Home – Steven Wilson
    Many musicians worship this man and it’s for all the right reasons. Add this song to your work playlist and you too, will see why.
  5. Lullaby – Low
    This song is perfect for playing in the background when you’re finally getting the hang of what you’re writing in your assignment.
  6. Anachronism – Crywolf
    Crywolf has a very fresh sound and his album Cataclasm makes for a brilliant work playlist in itself. When you’re about to give up, let this song remind you that good things do exist.
  7. Passionflower – Jon Gomm
    If you’re a fan of acoustic music, then you’ve found heaven. This semester has given you 99 problems but this 1 song will probably fix all of them.
  8. Shiver – Coldplay
    Coldplay. ‘Nuff said?
  9. Your Hand In Mine – Explosions In The Sky
    If you’ve never dabbled in the post-rock genre, then Explosions In The Sky might just be the best place to start. Go ahead, get on the feels train, you deserve a break.
  10. At A Glance – Message To Bears
    “Settle down, set it right,
    Don’t be scared, it’s alright.”
    That’s how the song goes and that should be every struggling student’s mantra.
