HSC Study Playlist

As we draw closer to existential despair and nihilistic oblivion in the form of a month long series of quizzes known as the HSC, the stress and pain reach immeasurably high levels. Hence, with the English exams on Monday and Tuesday, I have prepared thee a playlist to chill you the fuck out for Hamlet. Dude was a whiny prince with daddy issues. I would much rather jam to Jon Hopkins than that. And Emily Dickinson? Fuck her and her spinster ways, go for some Touch Sensitive and Washed Out. That shit’s way better! Anyway, here’s a playlist of slow, bubbling electronica and chillwave to cool ya nerves. If this doesn’t do it for you, then chuck on some James Blake. Sorry I couldn’t meet your needs.

I’d say good luck, but I’m secretly wishing you all fail, and I come first in NSW, and laugh in all your sorry faces. HAHA!
