Music Collective: vol. 49 {Study + Chill}

My moods have been pretty all over the place as of late, but for the most part, my music selections have been really chill, reflective even, to keep my moods balanced. Throughout the day, I go through at least 3 stages: motivation/momentum, thoughts/feelings, and winding down. All summer it was all about songs with a nice beat, happy lyrics, and/or an upbeat tempo, which I may still compose an 'End of Summer' play list, but now that school and other things on my schedule have picked back up, music-like always-is my escape and I'm more inclined to choose songs that either motivate me or give me something to relate to, which both are good to play while my head is in the books. 

Without further ado, here's what I've been listening to lately:

If you have been following my music series for a while, you'll know that these list aren't always new/newly discovered songs. If you would like to keep up with the music I may or may not mention on here, follow me on SpotifySoundcloud, as well newer favorite music apps. One is called Cymbal, which is essentially an Instagram for music-heads. The other one is this really dope startup app that just launched yesterday, created by a guy I went to high school with, Dreamrxyz, which is more of a mobile platform with a blog feel that focuses primarily on indie art and urban culture. Already I'm discovering so much quality music on there and I can definitely see myself falling in love with that app!
