Jet Fuel Jukebox: After Midnight Edition

Are you a fan of music and live in or near Chicago? Then maybe the Pitchfork Music Festival is for you! The Union Park festival has been slowly updating its set-list of acts that are scheduled to perform over the three-day weekend from July 20-22 — and so far so good! Friday features Tame Impala, Syd, and Courtney Barnett among others, so you can definitely catch me there on that day.

In other music news, there hasn’t been many huge releases over the last few weeks, but March looks good going forward. And still, even with a lesser amount of new singles and albums, Jake and I have scrounged together 10 recent tracks that we feel good about. On the playlist this week, you’ll find Superorganism, Twin Shadow, and Soccer Mommy, as well as 17 others.

Also, while you’re here and we’re talking about music, please be sure to watch this outstanding music video that Apple produced with director Spike Jonze, which debuts Anderson Paak’s groovy single, “‘Til It’s Over.”

Jet Fuel Jukebox for 2/20/18

The beginning of the new year has turned out to be pretty great in terms of new music, and this past week was no exception. Courtney Barnett released a new single and announced her upcoming solo album for May. Meanwhile, Car Seat Headrest and Born Ruffians had entire full-length records that came out on Friday.

I’ve highlighted multiple tracks from Car Seat Headrest recently, so I’ve gone ahead and skipped adding a track by them this week. However, Born Ruffians and Courtney Barnett are highlighted in this week’s playlist, alongside Sufjan Stevens, Young the Giant, Khalid, and 15 other artists.
