“Home With You” by FKA twigs

FKA twigs - home with you

The emotion that is professed during the lyric “I didn’t know that you were lonely/If you’d have just told me, I’d be home with you” absolutely rips my guts open. -Allie

“Hayden Prairie” by Prairie Clamor

Music from Austin, Minnesota, the city of 7 highway exits! The album came out in late 2018 and I’ve only just found out about it. A warm and personal project. -Willie

“Hard to Face” by San Mei

One of my favorite artists from Australia’s Gold Coast is back with another golden slice of pop goodness. “Hard to Face” is starting the ’20s off right. -Andrew

“SAVIOUR” by Madness and the Film

SAVIOUR Lyric Video

Hailing from NYC, and then Brown University, this duo had only one song out and it jives. -Jay

“How the West Was Really Won” by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross


One of the best pieces of music I’ve heard created for a show -- a show which happens to be some of the finest television as well. HBOs “Watchmen” has a lot of great things to offer, this is one. -David

“It All Dies Anyway” by the Gits

It All Dies Anyway

I randomly got a text from my boyfriend this weel telling me to check out Gits, a “punk band with a female lead vocalist”. If you’re looking for a way to get me into a bad, those are the exact words to use. -Becca

“Midas” by Skott

Skott - Midas (Official Video)

Have you seen the album cover for this track!? If not, go check it out. It reminds me of Jungle book with a hint of Egyptian goddess. -Allie

“Little Margaret” by Rhiannon Giddens with Francesco Turrisi

Rhiannon Giddens - Little Margaret (Official Audio)

From a wild collaboration that totally works, here’s a traditional ballad sung especially menacingly. -Willie

“Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen” by Mahalia Jackson

Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen - Mahalia Jackson

The queen of gospel remains one of the most important American artists of the 20th century, so when I found one of her CDs at Academy Records last week, I thought it was high time to familiarize myself with her works. It was a good call. -Andrew

“More Than Life” by Whitley

Whitley - More Than Life

A somber yet beautiful song from Whitley, who knows how to take the reigns on being shattered. -Jay

“I’m Coming Home (To See My Mother)” by Clifton Chenier

I'm Coming Home (To See My Mother)

Great use of the accordion with this Louisiana style song in nearly the same chords as Sam Cooke’s “Bring it on Home to Me” making for a very catchy tune. -David

“Cocoa Butter Kisses” by Chance the Rapper

Chance The Rapper - Cocoa Butter Kisses (feat. Vic Mensa and Twista)

I’ve been recently reading They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us. In the book, the author has a whole chapter dedicated to Chance the Rapper and his love for Chicago. It gave me a new appreciate for Chance, and I’ve found myself consitantly replaying his album Acid Rap. -Becca
