Welcome back to campus, everyone! If you’re looking for a way to while away the hours til classes start (or maybe just to drown out all of the frolicking freshmen), look no further than graphic designer Brian Gossett’s Ivy League-themed series of free downloadable playlists at Since 78.
Inspired by Teruyoshi Hayashida’s prepster handbook Take Ivy, which was reissued this August, the seven-playlist series mixes new tunes from indie acts like Arcade Fire and Beirut with classic tracks from the likes of The Velvet Underground, Bowie, and Bob Dylan. They’re the perfect antidote to back-to-school blues: sit back, relax, and let the popsy optimism of the Ivy Leaguers in Vampire Weekend welcome you back to the Orange Bubble in style!
