A Mixtape for All Occasions

Whether you're shopping for some fuzzy hipster apparel or practicing SABS and avoiding work, Street's got you and your headphones taken care of.







You’re “working”

You’ve got a few hours until the pregame and you need to get stuff done so you don’t feel like a total failure. All of a sudden your Facebook news feed is infinitely interesting and you’re hungry/need to go to the bathroom/cold/totally procrastinating. You might as well ditch the textbook and listen to these songs:


1. Houdini by Foster the People

2. Punching in a Dream by The Naked and Famous

3. We Come Running by Youngblood Hawke

4. The Trial of the Century by French Kicks

5. Heard ‘Em Say by Kanye West


You’re actually working

Fisher is freakishly quiet and everyone is glaring at you because your chair is squeaking. Keep the sound low and the productivity up with:


1. Muy Tranquilo by Gramatik

2. Gravitas by Little People

3. Pa Pa Power by Dead Man’s Bones

4. Lazy Eye by Silversun Pickups

5. Six by The Hush Sound


You and your roomie realize you hooked up with the same guy

OMG twinsies! Also kudos for remembering who you hooked up with last week. Roommate overlap is best accompanied by:


1. Already Home feat. Kid Cudi by Jay-Z


3. Global Concepts by Robert Delong

4.  White Walls Feat. Schoolboy Q & Hollis by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

5. Hey Ma by Cam’ron


Your aunt comments on your photos and posts on your wall (again).

Hi honey! Saw ur tagged pics—glad ur having fun! Talked to ur mom. We r coming to visit next week! Songs to go with the pain:


1. Ho Hey by The Lumineers

2. Oh No by Girl Talk

3. Concrete Wall by Zee Avi

4. Soft Shock (Acoustic Version) by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

5. Never Mess With Sunday by Yppah


You’re contemplating buying those leopard cutout fuzzy leggings from Urban.

First, put the leggings down. Go home. Give up. You’ve officially become that hipster

who sips fair trade tea and totally liked that band before they became mainstream.

At least you have a decent taste in music:


1. What a Pleasure by Beach Fossils

2. Don’t Move by Phantogram

3. Cult Logic by Miike Snow

4. Fineshrine by Purity Ring

5. Harpoon Fever by Man Man
