Jet Fuel Jukebox for 11/21/17

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.

Jet Fuel Jukebox for 10/10/17

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.

Jet Fuel Jukebox for 5/3/16

Jukebox_picRejoice, friends! It’s finals week here at Lewis University and the school year is coming to a close. That doesn’t stop us at the Jet Fuel Review from continuing our blogging. So, of course, we have a new Jukebox playlist for your enjoyment this week.

Tomorrow, a review from Jake for Beyoncé’s new album Lemonade will be going up. Unfortunately, the album isn’t yet available on Spotify, so you won’t find any of those songs on this week’s playlist. Speaking for the both of us, though, Jake and I would like to add many songs off of the album including highlights “Hurt Yourself,” “Hold Up,” and “All Night.”

While my picks this week have no connective themes, I’ve decided to celebrate that it is now May with Jonathan Coulton’s classic tune, “First of May.” Meanwhile, Jake has decided to include 10 “work” songs, as finals week always comes with a lot of work.

The 20 tracks this week include cuts from Hozier, St. Vincent, and Arcade Fire, among others.
