Some of my favorite weeks on the Jet Fuel Jukebox are when there’s crossover between the 10 choices that Jake and I make for the playlist. This week, it’s an album entitled Blue Lips, which is the third full-length release from Swedish pop star, Tove Lo. Each of us has gone ahead and inserted into our halves of the playlist a favorite from the new album, which saw its long-awaited release this past Friday.
Alongside this, I have another major highlight with the Jukebox’s closer this week, “Smoking Section,” from St. Vincent’s latest album release, MASSEDUCTION. This past weekend, I had the immense pleasure of seeing her live performance at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee. I’ve loved Annie Clark for years, previously claiming that she sits in my current top three artists, and my first time seeing her live did not disappoint. Hell, the show was better than I ever could have imagined. If you get the chance, see St. Vincent live; there’s no way you couldn’t enjoy yourself.
As for the rest of the playlist this week, we have 17 fellow tracks courtesy of artists like Tame Impala, P!nk, Sampha, and Princess Nokia.
