We’re already nearly half of the way through October — can you believe that? Well, me neither. It’s Tuesday, so of course Jake and I have updated the weekly Jukebox for your listening pleasure.
The ‘list features 20 songs including new singles from Run The Jewels, Sam Smith, and Jessie J, as well as a pick from both Jake and I off of Kelela’s awesome debut LP.
Also, since I’ve added a brand new single from St. Vincent here, I would like to inform you that she has an album coming out at the end of the week called Masseduction. Yeah, this is a big deal, people! Keep an eye out for that, and I will surely be picking out a favorite for next week’s playlist.
I would like to take this opportunity to extend thoughts and prayers from the entire Jet Fuel Review staff to any and all affected by the horrendous shooting that occurred in Las Vegas the other night. It is true, especially in troubling times like this, that turning to music may feel like one of the only things we can do, as it provides the comfort and escape we need from the travesties in the real world. But even then, I encourage all to help out in any way, if possible, to support and aid the people and families who are victims of the attack.
Secondly, RIP to Tom Petty, who was one of the greatest rock performers of all time and a childhood favorite of mine. As such, I have honored the man with the inclusion of what is likely my favorite track of his at the top of my half of the playlist.
Elsewhere on the Jukebox this week, Jake and I have highlighted tracks from Angel Olsen, Grizzly Bear, James Blake and Bon Iver, and Post Malone.
If you haven’t heard of this indie-folk-rock band from Cleveland yet, I would highly recommend checking out The Lighthouse and the Whaler’s new single, “Paths,” on the streaming service of your choice. Similar to a few of the songs off their 2015 album, Mont Royal, the quartet packs high energy and palpable emotion behind their fast-paced sound in this brand new single.
The melody of this song (similar to their other greatest hits) contains a combination between high highs and low lows. The head banging melody of hard electric guitar, the harmonious background singers, and the powerful sound of a catchy drum beat create an incredible chorus which highlights the refrain of the song:
“I was lookin’ to find the path you took, I was lookin’ to find the ground you shook.”
I almost can’t believe it’s already Tuesday again. How does the week go by this quickly?
Anyways, Jake and I have a whole new playlist of goodies for you to feast on this week, with all of my picks being based around the hip-hop/r&b selections I enjoyed over the summer.
Artists highlighted within the 20 tracks this week include Tove Lo, Brockhampton, SZA, and Purity Ring.
It’s been a while, huh? Well, wait no more! School is officially back in session and that means that the Jet Fuel Jukebox is here to stay (well, at least until next summer).
There’s been so much great music these past few months, so I’m certainly glad to be back on here recommending and compiling music into an easily digestible playlist for you all to enjoy. As for what you’ll hear on the playlist this week, we have highlighted tracks from LCD Soundsystem, Queens of the Stone Age, Kesha, and Lorde.
