“1972” by The Broken Social Scene

“The 40sec intro to this song puts me in my perfect mood. Can’t really explain it, but it just sits really well with me on almost any occasion.” -Allie


“Freedom Fighter” by #1 Dads

#1 Dads - Freedom Fighter *Official Video* (Golden Repair LP | 2020)

“Tom Iansek made one of my favorite albums of the decade with Animal, his 2016 effort with his other band, Big Scary. Now he’s returned to his other project, #1 Dads, and is once again proving why he’s one of the most moving artists out there today.” -Andrew


“Jefe” by Snarky Puppy

“An instrumental spanning genre with many instruments at play with a talented roster of players.” -David


“High On Love (Dave Edwards Remix)” by Class Actress

Class Actress - High On Love (Dave Edwards Remix)

“This is a good boating song, and Class Actress’ vocals fills her tune with a great ecstacy, alongside subtle drops of pain splashed in.” -Jay


“Andre the Giant” by Prof

Prof - Andre The Giant (Official Video)

“I call this my walk in music. My job can sometimes be emotionally draining, and so I tend to play this as my pump up music in the 2 blocks between my bus stop and my work.” -Becca


“Motel” by Caitlin Canty

Caitlin Canty | Motel

“Like I’ve highlighted many times before, there is something about a voice break that makes me weak. This one occurs on the word “I’m” within the lyric “You can tell them I’m doing okay” at 0:18. It is extremely subtle but prominent enough to catch my ear every time. See if you can spot it!” -Allie


“So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings” by Caroline Polachek

Caroline Polachek - So Hot You're Hurting My Feelings (Official Video)

“This song and video have been on repeat for me all week. The lead singer of Chairlift is back with a vengeance, showing she’s a force to be reckoned with as a solo artist as well.” -Andrew


“San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)” by Emile Mosseri, Daniel Herskedal and Joe Talbot

San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flo...) - Mike Marshall, Emile Mosseri, Joe Talbot, Daniel Herskedal,

“Terrific cover of a classic song and extremely powerful use in the film The Last Black Man in San Francisco.” -David


“Now or Never” by Metric

Metric - Now or Never Now (Official Video)

“I enjoy how they build this song up, from layering synths, percussions, and lyrics that cut deep. Metric always delivers.” -Jay

“Good News” by Mac Miller

Mac Miller - Good News

“Mac Miller was the artist that got me into hip hop. I have memories of listening to his music in my 6th grade science class with my friends. I was sadden by his death and I’m excited to sit down and listen to his new album that was just released.” -Becca
