Afternoon Gloom Mixtape
It has been a very boring and laid-back sem break. I realized school days were far better than staying up late in front of PC the whole week. I guess it’s the best time to sum up some good tunes to soundtrack and make this boring days into a memorable one - might not be the laziness but the feeling of carefree from school stress and sickening deadlines is one good relief. This mixtape is indeed about bumming around your room, eat once a day, stay online the whole day, smoke and smoke and smoke, get lazy! This mixtape could be a good travel-to-country-side playlist too, every track is noise-free I guarantee! =)
1. I Have Nothing - Noah and The Whale
Charlie Fink’s laid-back style of singing transforms the dramatic guitar riffs to a more relaxed one and less the tears.
2. Manhattan - Kings Of Leon
Kings of Leon is known for their signature laid-back sound but this song is a pretty laid-back song that will make you feel like you’re lying at your back in a vast corn field.
3. For Emma - Bon Iver
What I love about this song is that it sounds like it wasn’t recorded on a studio and was just sung out of boredom, hence making it an effortlessly made masterpiece.
4. My Boy Builds Coffins - Florence + The Machine
Florence + The Machine deserves a pretty decent spot on this mixtape, and this song does a great job for relaxation purposes.
5. Kimmi In A Rice Field - Twin Sister
Now, this is the gloomiest of the mixtape, This song has the power to mystify you…
6. Head First - Goldfrapp
7. House of Cards - Radiohead
8. Goshen - Beirut
A beautiful stripped-down ballad which could knock you right off of your feet.
9. Unchained Melody (Righteous Brothers Cover) - Lykke Li
10. Oviedo - Blind Pilot
11. Hysteric (Acoustic Version) - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
