Whether you’re in school or at work, fall signals an end to the lazy days of summer. For us students, it also means the approach of midterms, papers, and job applications.

With a heavy focus on instrumentals but not exclusively so, this playlist will gently soothe your ears as you focus in on whatever task is at hand. Enjoy below.
