Jet Fuel Jukebox for 4/25/17

The day you’ve waited for eagerly has finally come! It’s Tuesday, and with that comes a brand new entry in our Jet Fuel Jukebox series.

I didn’t find a single new song this past week to share, unfortunately, but I did have the pleasure of seeing Donnie Darko in theaters for its 15th anniversary this past weekend! Being set in the 80’s and featuring an incredible, decade-appropriate soundtrack, the film has inspired me to reach into the time period for my picks this week.

Jake didn’t seem to run into the same problem as me, as he’s included several brand new singles, including the 80’s-inspired Paramore hit “Hard Times,” and the new song from Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd. Rounding out the playlist are tracks from Tears For Fears, Sonic Youth, and Katy Perry.

Jet Fuel Jukebox for 4/18/17

Imagine: it’s Tuesday, and you’re desperately searching for new music to listen to. If this is you, then you’ve come to the right place, as the Jet Fuel Jukebox has has all your music needs.

We were finally blessed this past weekend with Kendrick Lamar’s new album DAMN., and it’s damn good. So good, in fact, that both Jake and I have highlighted a track from the record. Other than Kendrick, we have highlights from the new Little Dragon full-length release, and tracks from Michael Jackson, The Cure, and Metric.

I also had the pleasure of seeing one of the final performances of pop duo Chairlift this past weekend, so I’ve concluded my half of the playlist with one of my favorite songs by them. R.I.P. Chairlift, you will be missed.

Jet Fuel Jukebox for 4/11/17

You know what day it is? It’s Tuesday, and that means Jake and I have yet another incredible playlist of 20 songs for your listening pleasure.

Unfortunately, Kendrick Lamar’s new album Damn was not released this past Friday as it was rumored, but it was officially announced for release this Friday, April 14!

Good news, however, is that Joey Bada$$’ latest record, ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$ did see its release this past Friday, and it’s damn good. For the Jukebox opener, I’ve highlighted my favorite track from the record, “Temptation.”

Along with this, I’ve featured Gorillaz’ latest release and Jake has featured Harry Styles’ new solo single, “Sign of the Times.”

Other than those two tracks, the newly updated 20-song playlist sees the return of Walk the Moon, NAO, and Neon Indian. Check out the entire setlist below, and give it a listen yourself!

Jet Fuel Jukebox for 3/14/17

On this especially snowy March Tuesday morning, we introduce to you a brand new Jet Fuel Jukebox. Welcome it with open arms, won’t you?

It seems that Charli XCX’s new mixtape (which dropped this past Friday) has made quite the impression on both Jake and I, as we’ve both decided to highlight a track from her latest release, Number 1 Angel. Elsewhere, you’ll notice new tracks from Lorde and Little Dragon, who both showed up on this playlist over the past few weeks with their previous singles.

The 20-song playlist is rounded out by additions from Anderson Paak, Foxes, and Vampire Weekend.
