SUNIFY PLAYLIST #1: Prelim Season

Print More

It’s that time of year again. With Spring Break on the distant horizon, Cornellians of all majors are combatting the dreadful specter of Prelim Season. Whether you are reviewing problem sets in Duffield, caving in and purchasing the TakeNote for that non-major Biology class that you have yet to attend or pulling an all-nighter in the Cocktail Lounge, Prelim Season means one thing for everybody: quality music listening time.

In our first installation of the Sunify Playlist, The Pulse seeks to not only entertain but to enable; a study playlist isn’t worth anything if it doesn’t yield any actual study time. We hope that this mix of hypnotic electronica, chilled-out jazz, acoustic folk, psychedelic hip-hop and string-drenched indie rock will help you get that A (or, at the very least, help you beat the mean). The track listing is below.
