It’s the weekend before finals, which means students are trading party plans for library study rooms. You may assemble your laptop, notes, books and pens, but no study session is complete without the perfect soundtrack. Good study music can be hard to find. So look no further. Here is a mix of lo-fi beats from artists like Engelwood, instrumental tracks by artists like Fashion Jackson and generally laid-back tunes by artists like Rex Orange County to keep you calm and focused but still alert while pulling those final all-nighters. You can listen here.

  • "Springtime" - Engelwood
  • "Amore" - Peachy!
  • "Topanga" - Goth Babe
  • "High in an Elevator" - Fashion Jackson
  • "Yellow Velvet" - Wydes
  • "Peach" - Kevin Abstract
  • "Boardwalk" - Engelwood
  • "If It Were Me" - glow!
  • "Corduroy Dreams" - Rex Orange County
  • "I Hope the World Never Ends" - Postcard Boy
