“Everywhere” by Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac - Everywhere (Official Music Video)

“Can you even believe that bass line!? I am really beginning to start like a broken record, but the groovy bounce of that riff takes my body places!” -- Allie


“Pang” by Caroline Polachek

Caroline Polachek - Pang (Lyric Booklet)

“I totally missed the boat on the album of the same name this year, but I’m glad I’m getting into it now. It’s such a great pop widget, and Polachek and Danny L. Harle work together seamlessly. On this track in particular, it’s hard to find any non-circular edge. Everything just collapses back into a pleasant “Pang!” -- Willie


“Loyalty (Net Affection Remix)” by Christina Marie Magenta

Christina Marie Magenta - Loyalty (Net Affection Remix)

“Minor and immersive is one way to describe this jam, remixed by the talented Net Affection. The synths draw you in and her vocals have this unreal level of attraction to them.” -- Jay


“Blow” by Atreyu

Atreyu - Blow (Official Music Video)

“There are two categories of emo kids: metal emo and pop punk emo -- me being the latter. I heard this song come on at a bar and it instantly brought me back to the days of Warped Tour. Long live Warped Tour.” -- Becca


“Another Life” by D’Angelo

D'Angelo & The Vanguard - Another Life (Audio)

“There is no wrong time to listen to D’Angelo, but here are a few of my favorites: 1. Over a candlelit dinner. 2. While taking a walk on a hazy winter evening. 3. Mixing a drink and pretending you’re a cocktail connoisseur.” -- Colleen


“Subterranean Desire” by Oppenheimer Analysis

Oppenheimer Analysis - Subterrenean Desire
“In commemoration of my horrible, no-good experience at O’Hare Airport one Thanksgiving ago, here is a selection from one of the handful of albums I had downloaded onto my phone at the time. To pass the time for 12 hours or so, I listened to this hypnotic, nuclear-bomb-themed synth pop album again and again. I won’t say it was the primary cause of my extended out of body experience, but it didn’t help. An airport is a perfect liminal space, and if you stay in it for long enough, things do get weird (I was also listening to the Punch Brothers, but that doesn’t work as well for this narrative). Long story short, I finally got on the long-delayed plane and the pilot ripped his hand open while slamming the cabin door shut and fainted at the sight of blood. Oops! Then some firefighters came on and they said he should not be flying the aircraft. The flight attendants offered us free water and put us on a different plane.” -- Willie

“In the Arms Of Sleep” by Smashing Pumpkins

Smashing Pumpkins - In The Arms of Sleep

“I was lucky enough to snag a ticket for one of Billy Corgan’s three sold out acoustic sets at NYC’s Gramercy Theatre, and as luck would have it, I picked the night where he chose to play this beauty off my favorite album of all time, 1995’s Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. I could never get tired of this song.” -- Andrew


“Truly Madly Deeply” by Yoke Lore

Truly Madly Deeply - Yoke Lore

“I hear Adrian Galvin’s cover of this ’90s classic play overhead at my favorite local coffeeshop on a weekly basis. I thought it finally deserved its moment to shine on a Tunesday Playlist.” -- Allie


“Take My Picture” by Nur-D

Nur-D - Take My Picture (Official Video)
“Nur-D is one of my favorite rappers that I’ve discovered out of Minneapolis. He was recently awarded City Page’s Best New Local Artists, and he’s already been announced on a couple of great tours, including Brother Ali’s. I’m excited to see him and his career grow.” -- Becca


“Now That I Found You” by Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen - Now That I Found You

“Two glorious factors have brought more CRJ into my life this week: 1. I finally signed up for a gym membership and rediscovered the joy of sweating to Carly’s bubbly love songs on the elliptical. 2. The indie queen of pop recorded a Tiny Desk Concert, thus shooting a ray of sunshine directly into my body.” -- Colleen


“The Hype -- Berlin” by Twenty One Pilots

twenty one pilots - Løcatiøn Sessiøns: The Hype (Berlin)
“Was listening to their song on a road trip with my peeps, and it sure did lighten the mood, especially with more than 100 miles to the destination.” -- Jay


“Rattling the Keys To The Kingdom” by Hilltop Hoods

Hilltop Hoods - Rattling the Keys to the Kingdom
“The Hoods have had a long and illustrious career as one of Australia’s premier hip hop groups, but this track stands out to me as perhaps their best after the seminal “Nosebleed Section.” With so many hits to choose from, this 2012 standout can sometimes get lost in the shuffle--don’t let it.” -- Andrew
