This happens to me on a regular basis — probably every other month or so. I get tired of the music I have on my iPod. So I’m looking for suggestions. What music helps you get your job done? Sometimes I need something nice and mellow to get myself into the right frame of mind, and sometimes I need something I can turn the volume up to drown out the background noise. Sometimes vocals are good, sometimes they are distracting. Unfortunately, streaming sites don’t work from the office, so things like Pandora are out. Looking forward to your suggestions.
Infected Mushroom is by far the best coding music in my opinion.
Guano Apes are good.
Deadlights had 1 album, but it is heavy, fast, and incoherent, the 3 qualities of good work music.
Silversun pickups’ album is really good too.
Faith No More: Angel Dust
Pop Will Eat Itself: Dos Dedos Mis Amigos
