    With the school year beginning, I'm gonna be doing maths/physics plus writing history and geography lesson in short, and I do all this stuff while listening to music. I prefer instrumental music in this case. And if I keep this up, Ghosts I-IV and The Social Network OST are going to be the only music I hear. Apart from that, I know two God Is An Astronaut albums, and... well that's pretty much it. So, I need recommendations for instrumental stuff. Be it bands or OSTs, gimme anything. Generic dubstep and EDM not accepted. Thanks in advance. :D

    Not sure if it's your cup of tea, but I loved listening to Bohren & der Club of Gore's album Black Earth when I studied. Dark ambient music with a strong downtempo and jazz influence.

    • if you dig "The Social Network", I highly recommend Cliff Martinez' soundtrack for "Contagion" :)
    • Martinez' score for "Drive" is pretty cool too
    • Paul Leonard-Morgan's "Dredd" soundtrack
    • Daft Punk: "TRON: Legacy R3C0NF1GUR3D"
    • The Glitch Mob: "Drink The Sea"
    • Air's soundtrack for "The Virgin Suicides", which is really chill
    • "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" soundtrack by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross
    • Thomas Newman's soundtrack for "American Beauty"
    • lastly, I also second Gibs' suggestion of Deadmau5' album "while(1<2)"

    I don't really listen to soundtracks, but as far as instrumental rock goes I would recommend:

    sleepmakeswaves (progressive rock)

    [video=youtube_share;f_N0iEt5iKs]http://youtu.be/f_N0iEt5iKs[/video]

    or Damage Vault (industrial)

    [video=youtube_share;QuF16vElJF8]http://youtu.be/QuF16vElJF8[/video]

    or Parhelia (alternative rock)

    [video=youtube_share;63cmp6BCx-o]http://youtu.be/63cmp6BCx-o[/video]

    or Rob Dougan's instrumental mix of his album (orchestral)

    [video=youtube_share;vH9WuBuEp_0]http://youtu.be/vH9WuBuEp_0[/video]

    or Blue Stahli's antisleep albums (electronic based, decent range)

    [video=youtube_share;l1Nj_t74w40]http://youtu.be/l1Nj_t74w40[/video]

    or Little People (instrumental hip-hop, whatever that means)

    [video=youtube_share;W1meVRvovaM]http://youtu.be/W1meVRvovaM[/video]

    or my personal favorite, Vitamin String Quartet.
