I always like to find new music I can study to, and my list is kind of narrow at the moment. It's impossible with Gaslight and Frank Turner because I automatically want to break out my instruments, play along, and sing obnoxiously. I wanted to see what you guys might suggest - maybe some classical, or some jazz? Very Happy

Some post-rock like Explosions in the sky or Mogwai do the trick for me. Miles Davis - Some kind of blue is a great jazz record to study to. If I´m in classic mode some Tchaikovsky is always great. Smile

Oh, I definitely have some Mogwai. They're wonderful. I have a bit of Miles Davis as well, especially that record!

When I'm trying to write or do research, the old 70s singer/songwriter stuff always helps me concentrate. James Taylor and Carole King especially, but Jackson Browne, Carly Simon, Harry Chapin, Cat Stevens, and Jim Croce are fantastic too. Their music is pretty mellow, so it allows me to just get lost in my work and drown out the rest of the world.

I'll agree with this. Sigur Ros usually works for me, and after Ilaria recommended Explosions in the Sky to me yesterday I would definitely agree with that

I listened to a lot of stuff by The Appleseed Cast while I studied. Stuff like this, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKHp-kCiiD0

Also great for zoning out on long car trips!

Holy crap! WTF is that? It sounds like a dying cat! haha ...not sure if it would make good study music. Maybe if you had the right personality for it.

I'd probably recommend some Mosart, like Symphony # 25 in Gm or maybe his 9th Symphony. The 9th is great!
I always tried to find the ones that were like 12 minutes long or more.

post-rock has become one of my favorite genres to listen to in general. It's the only music I can study and do school work too.

Highly Highly recommend Industries of the Blind, Mogwai, Explosions, the Album Leaf, and the Calm Blue Sea. Those are my current favorites. But the best way to enjoy a complete post-rock and instrumental music is on Pandora - either with Explosions in the Sky Radio or Post Rock Radio. The throw in a lot of modern and contemporary composers as well. Some acoustic instrumentalists like Andy McKee are always good.
