Music to Work to

Friday, August 22, 2014

Whether I'm working on work-related things, writing, getting ready for the day ahead, or just chilling, I love listening to music. I've always loved specific styles and genres of music, but my taste in music has changed a lot over the past few years - especially during college, when I discovered dubstep by way of art school during my freshman year.

When I work, I tend to gravitate towards certain genres of music. Here's what I've been listening to in order to stay productive and have fun while doing so. :) I also included Spotify links so you can listen along.

Mumford and Sons

I have gotten into Mumford and Sons over the years, and thanks to a good friend of mine and working at the radio station simultaneously, I consider this group one of my favorite Indie/Folk Rock groups. They're a lot of fun to listen to when I get started working on a task or project.

The Lumineers

You're going to see a lot of indie/folk/rock groups in the music I listen to for work, just because of the fact that they mix upbeat tempos with meaningful lyrics that are pleasant in the background. I work in the mornings, so it's nice to have something that's faster paced playing.

I love the Lumineers because they remind me of fun times studying with my friends in college, and they also remind me of CW's Reign. (They did the theme song for the show!)

Imagine Dragons

I've seen them live, and they are as amazing in person as they are on their record. Not only does this music remind me of the amazing time I had at their show with my best friends, but it's also among my top 10 favorite music of all time. "Radioactive" is my jam. :)

Owl City

And this would be part of my top 5...actually, top 2. I've been a fan of Owl City since high school, and I love his poetic lyrics and synth-y beats. I've seen him live, too, and I really hope I get to see him in concert again.

The Avett Brothers

I was introduced to the Avett Brothers early in my college career, and their music makes me smile. I love how witty their lyrics are, too. I haven't listened to all of their newest album yet, but I will be listening to the whole thing at some point in the near future. I like what I've heard so far!

What music do you like to listen to while you're working, doing homework, or getting important things done?
