Jet Fuel Jukebox for 11/28/17

We’ve arrived in the wasteland that is the dry period of late-year music releases (or, lack thereof). There’s absolutely nothing that came out this past Friday that caught my ear, so I’ve gone to looking back for inspiration on my half of the Jukebox this week.

Jake’s done his best keeping his half of the playlist current, but the first ten tracks of the proceedings are 80s English throwbacks, spurred by my decision to spin The Cure’s The Head on the Door the other day. What a wonderful album that is.

And alongside a track from that Cure record, we also have tracks from Duran Duran, Wet, Maroon 5, and Elvis Costello & The Attractions.

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.

Introducing Our Newest Blogger and The Jet Fuel Jukebox

Hey, dear readers! Here at the Jet Fuel Review, we love having new announcements to share with you. This week, we not only have a new blogger joining the mix, but we’ve come up with what we believe is a really cool idea that we hope you love as much as we do.

Firstly, please help me welcome our newest blogger, Jake Johnson. Jake will be our resident music blogger here at JFR. Jake’s first review for the exceptional Carly Rae Jepsen album, E•MO•TION, will go up tomorrow under the feature title “Colors of Sound.” Today, though, we have a brand new feature to share, The Jet Fuel Jukebox.

The Jet Fuel Jukebox will be a weekly feature in which Jake and I curate a Spotify playlist filled with 20 songs we simply cannot get enough of that particular week. The first ten songs are my recommendations and the last ten are Jake’s. This week’s Jet Fuel Jukebox features the likes of Vampire Weekend, The Cure, and this week’s featured artist, Carly Rae Jepsen.

Check it out!
