Jet Fuel Jukebox for 10/27/15

Tuesday is upon us again, and with it comes another playlist of 20 songs hand-picked by our resident music blogger — Jake Johnson — and I.

Easily the biggest music news this past week is the announcement of Adele’s highly anticipated upcoming album, “25,” which will be released on November 20th. You can be sure Jake will have a review of that one. As a big fan of the British singer/songwriter, Jake’s first pick and our leading song for this week’s Jukebox is her hit new single, “Hello.”

This week I’m highlighting Canadian synth-pop starlet Grimes, as she has also announced this week that her newest album, entitled “Art Angels,” is coming out incredibly soon on November 6th. In the Jukebox this week I have included her absolutely fabulous new single “Flesh without Blood.” Closing out the playlist is a personal favorite Grimes song of mine, “Oblivion,” which is a dark, haunting, synth-led song from her 2012 album, “Visions.”

Other artists this week include actor Ryan Gosling’s Halloween-themed band Dead Man’s Bones, Kanye West, and The Replacements.
