When it comes to study music, I always go for something light and relaxing that will clear my mind of stress, but not lull me to sleep. The following albums are my favorites for a soothing, mellow study session, with just enough upbeat tempos to keep you awake and focused.

1. Fleet Foxes by Fleet Foxes

2. The Suburbs by Arcade Fire

3. Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place by Explosions in the Sky

4. Sleep Through the Static by Jack Johnson

5. In Rainbows by Radiohead
