In the last few weeks, many people who haven’t experienced working from home before are taking on the challenge for the first time.
One of our biggest pieces of advice as remote workers is to have a great playlist going while you work to help you focus and to make the mundane tasks go just a little faster.
No matter what you choose to listen to daily, we thought we’d share some of our favourite albums to listen to over the last year.
1. ChilledCow – Lofi Hip Hop Radio
This is easily one of our favourite things to have on in the background while you work, which is the reason it's first on our list. This laid back, non-stop radio is the perfect accompaniment to a hard days work.
2. 17 – XXXTentacion
Even though this artist faced a number of controversies towards the end of his life, this album is a sure-fire way to make the work day go quickly. It's a quiet internal reflection that would follow smoothly on from ChilledCow's lofi hip hop.
3. Kendrick Lamar – Good Kid m.A.A.d City (Deluxe)
Stepping up from the last 2 albums is Kendrick Lamars 2nd studio album and was widely praised as one of the best albums in its year of release. A banging introspective of Kendrick's formative years, this album shows both quick wit and the amazing storytelling of one of America's most respected artists.
4. Modern Baseball - You’re Gonna Miss It All
Modern baseball is one of our founders favourite afternoon jams and is a great mixture of modern punk and pub rock (in our opinion). If it were up to us, this would be one of our continuous Friday afternoon beer drinking songs.
5. Vampire Weekend – Father Of The Bride
Our final recommendation is from Vampire Weekend. Making fans wait 6 years for a 4th album to drop unexpectedly and seemingly overnight may not seem like a clever tactic, but Vampire Weekend pulled it off perfectly with Father of the Bride. No matter the weather, this band is able to bring light to the room.
No matter the circumstances that you're in, we hope that these albums make a dent in your day.
From all the team at Kashy, we hope you're well.
