May 2017 Playlist
Our picks for the month!
Sam Rosenblatt can’t stop listening to “Hero” by Family of the Year.
After watching the 2014 film Boyhood which features the song as the background to an emotional scene at the end, he’s digging it. Naturally, it’s become stuck in his head where it will likely stay for the rest of the month.
Jack Graubard is feelin’ “Ballad of the Dying Man” by Father John Misty.
This song incorporates everything Father John Misty does well and I've been listening to it on a daily basis ever since he released the album "Pure Comedy" at the beginning of April.
Noah Grossman wants you to check out “PRIDE.” by Kendrick Lamar.
Off of Kendrick’s new album, Damn, “PRIDE.” showcases Kendrick as he embraces a new flare while keeping the old Kendrick greatness around.
Ryan Gannon can’t stop talking about “We Got the Power” by Gorillaz.
It’s a collaboration between Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher, enough said.
Lauren Ziolkowski is raving about “Young Blood” by The Districts.
She just saw these guys last weekend, and they were incredible. Everyone JAMMED to this song. It absolutely bumps.
“Duckworth” by Kendrick Lamar is Harrison Wilf’s pick of the month.
It’s an incredible true story that gives an awesome end to an unreal album.
Allison Rhyu has been vibing to “do re mi” by Blackbear.
“do re mi” stood out to Allison because of the electro-pop beats, along with the entertaining and hilarious lyrics that almost anyone can relate to. The upbeat tempo of the song makes it the perfect car jam.
Lukas Yeshitla is also digging the new Kendrick Lamar album and chose “Yah”.
It’s a very laid back song with great lyrics and beat transitions. He also loves the simplicity of the hook.
“Young and Menace” by Fall Out Boy has been blasting on Tyler DiBartolo’s speakers.
It’s got the grungy Fall Out Boy Feel with a 2017 electronic twist. The track is cool and familiar with a new element.
Laur Hudson has been vibing to “Third of May / Ōdaigahara” by Fleet Foxes.
After a six year hiatus, Fleet Foxes united and graced us with this masterpiece. The symphonic layers combined with the ever-enchanting vocals by frontman Robin Pecknold make for a beautiful track.
MK Moore has contributed “It’s Gonna Be Me” by N’SYNC.
A springtime classic, “It’s Gonna Be Me” has become the meme of the month. And who can pass up a classic N’SYNC throwback?
