What's the best album/playlist to listen to while working or studying?

I’m constantly listening to music when working, commuting or just in general life. The kind of music I’m listening to really has an impact on my productivity and how I work. I’d like to hear what are people’s go-to albums to gain some focus…

There’s a really great playlist on Apple Music called ‘Study Beats’ which is jammed packed with indietronica. But the most affective albums for me are Caribou - Our Love and Frank Ocean - Blonde… net-resizeimage7bac2cc7

I write best with no music since even classical music distracts me, but when researching I sometimes put on Ludovico Einaudi’s “I Giorni” for hours straight. I also found James Blunt’s “Moon Landing” album really soothing. My favourite is Satellites.

I don’t really listen to albums mainly DJ Sets… I’m listening to this right now. It’s a banger if you like this kinda thing.

Anything of this genre etc and I am there.

Boards of Canada - The Music Has The Right to Children is an all time favourite during my study sessions


Another go-to could be Selected Ambient Works 85-92 by Aphex Twin. It just never gets old.

For me currently stuff like Blue Notebooks - Max Richter (http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/reviews/v4bd/) or World Beyond - Erasure (https://www.lexermusic.com/erasure-world-beyond-cd-album)

Bon Iver’s self-titled for me! It got me through some hellish times doing my law degree coursework. https://open.spotify.com/album/7pTARJYCVO49nFXB1Mo5re?si=a6egPZ1iRwe_AqKbE9uTXA
