New York's CMJ Music Marathon is just that–a strenuous, highly rewarding race of shows, showcases, and a lot of walking. Even if you've been training all summer (Bonnaroo, Coachella, Austin City Limits) you're probably going to have a lot of feels this week. That's why I've made you four playlists (paired with illustrations by yours truly) for the emotions you're bound to feel, or need to feel this week. Including exclusively CMJ 2015 artists, use these moodlists as a guide to your schedule or listen to it all year round. Plus, the mood ring was invented in New York in 1975, so it's only fitting to give your favorite '90s accessory a new meaning.
