Calming Tunes For December

I'm so excited for Christmas! It's only a few weeks until the days for lots of family-time, delicious foods and Christmas movies will be there again - finally. I can't wait for Home Alone and Love Actually to be on TV, but I will have to battle an exam week and move into a different room (yes!) before then. In order to survive the upcoming stressful weeks I've created a nice Spotify-list consisting of songs that will hopefully have a calming effect. Whether you have to face tests, exams, days of work or nothing at all: here's my playlist. Enjoy it.

Mightiest of Guns - A.A. Bondy
Lullaby (Mountain) - The Acorn
The King - Alela Diane
Holocene - Bon Iver
Looking Too Closely - Fink
Gooey - Glass Animals
Hear The Noise That Moves So Soft And Low - James Vincent McMorrow
I Remember - Saint Saviour
Better Still - St. South
Slacks - St. South
Intro - The xx
Roofies - Dream Koala
Clouds - Borns
Long Nights - Eddie Vedder
Georgia - Vance Joy
Nothing Arrived - Villagers
Tiger Striped Sky - Roo Panes
Clocks Go Forward - James Bay
Mango Tree - Angus & Julia Stone
Naked As We Came - Iron & Wine
White Gloves - Khruangbin
Celebration - Jamie Woon
Get Good (infinitefreefall remix) - St. South
Esmerelda - Ben Howard
