Spencer Topf ’14 is an Economics and Political Science major. He enjoys pottery, anything to do with art, and cigars. While he mostly listens to classic rock, he has been branching out recently and is currently in an electro/indie mood. He deejays for 91.5 WSRN on Thursdays from midnight to 1:00 a.m.

This playlist is a group of songs that are great to relax and chill to. All of them are things I’ve picked up in the past few weeks, and they’re great for doing work, getting ready to go out, or anything else. To find most of [my music], I scroll through tons of blogs and music sites. This playlist ranges from the most basic indie music to some remixes to some pure electro, but all of the songs are low energy and blissful.
