“Telepathetic” by Sløtface

Sløtface - Telepathetic (Official Music Video)

“I. LOVE. SLØTFACE. The Norwegian rockers blend punk with pop so well that the result could practically be renamed “The Sløtface Sound.” This new single of theirs has been in my head since the moment I heard it, and hopefully soon it’ll be in yours.” -- Andrew


“Tenderness” by Jay Som

Jay Som - Tenderness [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]

“Jay Som’s third LP proves once-again that not only is she a knockout songwriter, but a masterfully subtle producer. This song builds slowly, constantly unraveling itself from a Phil Collins-esque drum fill to a satisfyingly deceptive key change.” -- Colleen


“Paper Rings” by Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift - Paper Rings (Official Audio)

“I’d be lying if I said I’ve had much other than Lover on rotation this week. As a longtime Swift fan and defender, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this record after the singles fell flat for me--but it’s got some real gems, with this one right at the top.” -- Andrew


“Heart of Gold” by Field Mouse

Field Mouse - "Heart of Gold"

“This Song is explosive from start to finish. A go-to for shredding through an air guitar solo or head banging on the bus.” -- Colleen


“Your Love” by The Outfield

The Outfield - Your Love (Official Video)

“This is one of those throwback tunes that when brought back into your musical library is stuck on repeat. I think this would also be one of those neat retro covers that gives it a modern rebirth -- another chance to dance in the spotlight.” -- Allie 


“Start Again” by Marmozets

Marmozets - Start Again (Audio)

“Love the range of rock this energetic English band brings to the stage. Melodic, technical, and somewhat of a post-punk vibe, the Marmozets sophomore album goes full throttle with their expressive sound. A must see live.” -- Jay


“Big Spender” by Sweet Charity

“I recently started watching Fosse/Verdon, and it has satisfied my inner theatre nerd that I try to suppress. The opening scene is Fosse trying to find the perfect way to shoot this scene for Sweet Charity, which also happened to be one of my favorite theatre songs growing up. Now I have so much more admiration for this scene and song, now that I know the backstory of how they shot it.” -- Becca


“Kaneda (From “Akira Symphonic Suite)” by Geinoh Yamashirogumi

AKIRA soundtrack - Geinoh Yamashirogumi - "Battle Against Clown"

“I finally watched Akira, and besides every other amazing thing about it, the soundtrack is otherworldly. You can’t hear this gamelan-inspired music and not think of bikes and skyscrapers. If all goes according to plan, the Tokyo Olympics next year will be very interesting…” -- Willie


“You’re Going Far, Kid” by The Offspring

The Offspring - You're Gonna Go Far, Kid (Official Music Video)

“The Offspring: This is one of those songs that I forget exists, but when I suddenly remember it, it’s all I want to listen to.” -- Becca


“Lemon Eyes” by Meg Myers

Meg Myers - Lemon Eyes [Music Video]

“With catchy vocals and bass line, Meg Myers’ unique sound delivers a sonic punch that gets you grooving in a fury.” -- Jay


“Every Breath You Take” by The Police

The Police - Every Breath You Take (Official Music Video)

“Oh. This tune just rips my heart open. That opening guitar riff is so chilling. I feel like Jay Gatsby taking hopeful a midnight boat ride towards the green light.” -- Allie
