I've ruined most of my other music by over playing during exam period so need some recommendations.
I like post rock stuff like Explosions in the sky or If These Trees Could Talk. But not big of fan of it going to heavy (at least for studying)
I also love the first 20-30 minutes of this but cant find anything else like it. It's really uplifting with a good speed
Help need some new instrumental music watch

This is the only one I can think of at the moment: One Call Away Pianapella

not strictly a rock instrumentalist but the man worked heavily with experimental samples from lots of genres on his final album Donuts
Dude flipped a 10cc sample here

Oddisee - The Beauty in All
Chilled out Hip-Hop album, very easy to listen to, the production is great. Here is a track from it - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0SDlb_TU9-o
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun
Post rock. Bit of an obvious one but if you've not heard it, here is a track from it - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rtemrZ7-pj0
Azymuth - Light As A Feather
This is a little gem of a group imo. Brazilian Jazz/Funk. Here is a track from this album - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=z_Ffkev1O18
Nujabes - Metaphorical Music
If you like the Dilla abum recommended above then try this, it has some vocals on it but a lot of instrumental stuff too. Here is a track from it - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=G4w21HcML2M
Dirty Three - Horse Stories
Again if you're into post rock you've probably heard this but here is a track from it - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4eOqlxd_q90
Brian Eno - Ambient 1: Music For Airports
It's fantastic, if you haven't head this, get it already. I can't link a track but I'm guessing this will be most like what you're looking for for studying.
David Bowie - Low
The second side of this record, there are a couple of instrumentals on the first but they are more upbeat Rock. Side B is from Warszawa to Subterraneans. Here is a track - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PK1alQN3MDg
David Bowie - "Heroes"
Same as above, Side B of this album is incredible. Track here - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2eTvCiMjJWc
I'm guessing you've heard a lot of My Bloody Valentine and Slowdove?
Also if you can tolerate some vocals I'd recommend some Beach House.

Probably my favourite albums of theirs, and AFAIK it's their first album to not contain an overdose of strings.
Last track also, surprisingly, has vocals. But if you're not a big fan of the heavy then you probably won't appreciate it too much. No reason why you shouldn't enjoy the rest of the album (or their entire back-catalogue) though.
