Chloe Stevens’s Sleepy Tracks

Chloe Stevens ’13 is a huge nerd who spends most of her waking hours rotating between the computer science lab and the math lounge. She enjoys swimming, chamber music, and “non-stop Tuesdays.” The best live show she’s ever seen is Arcade Fire.

This playlist is my musical equivalent of comfort food: quiet, calming, and slightly self-indulgent in a monotonous, single-genred kind of way. The songs are primarily acoustic and mostly old favorites, with a few recent additions scattered in. I think it’s ideal for late nights in a stress-filled library, or as some pre-bedtime background noise. Enjoy!
