Campus Vinyl November 2016 Playlist
November is finally here. The leaves have fallen, the temperatures are dropping, and our workloads are starting to pick up in anticipation of finals. We here at CV are so ready for Thanksgiving break, and we're happy to share a new playlist to help everyone get through the final push until our week off. Check out what our journalists have been listening to this month! Personally, I’ve been obsessed with “Wait for It” by Leslie Odom Jr (Hamilton Broadway Cast):
I finally listened to the Hamilton soundtrack all the way through at the beginning of the month, and it lives up to the relentless hype. This track is underrated, but no less powerful than hits like “My Shot”. I can’t wait to hear Usher’s rendition of it on the Hamilton Mixtape.
Jack B. can’t stop listening to “Disdain” by Knuckle Puck:
The guys from Knuckle Puck were recently involved in a van crash while on tour with the star studded line up: The Wonder Years, Real Friends, Moose Blood and Seaway. Although they will need to rent a new van, Knuckle Puck decided to finish out tour and as such we should celebrate their resiliency and potentially poor driving skills by checking out their hit song "Disdain" off their most recent album Copacetic.
MK is grooving to “Coins” by Local Natives:
I’m in love with this single off of their newest album!
Ryan likes “Don’t Look Back in Anger” by Oasis:
That catchy chorus and drum beat tho…
Alex is appreciating “Someone You’d Admire” by Fleet Foxes:
Simplistic but impactful lyrics and sparse instrumentation make for a harrowing song.
Jack G. recently discovered “Anymore” by The Twilight Hours:
I was just introduced to this band a couple weeks ago, and I don't know anyone else who knows this group. I think they should be recognized, and this is one of their best.
Jason is fascinated by “Shelter” by Porter Robinson:
Porter Robinson is an American DJ who has been shaking up the EDM charts. He uses a computerized voice that is a mix of Siri and a classic video game character voice. He is doing really interesting things, and will hopefully be releasing a new full album soon.
Lauren is reminiscing with “She’s the Blade” by Sugarcult:
Not gonna lie, I've been binge-watching a ton of One Tree Hill this past month and that show thrives on angsty, mid-2000's bands like Fall Out Boy, Story of the Year, and Sugarcult. The soundtrack is filled with throwbacks that have been nonstop playing in my head for the last week. I've been jamming to this one especially.
Mike loves “Revolution (Sean & BOBO Remix)” by Diplo:
This song will get me hyped for anything.
Sam is holding on to summer with “Streetcorner Symphony” by Rob Thomas:
Great summer song to listen to while enjoying the last of the warmer weather. Also takes you back to summer vibes when the days get colder.
Eric is chilling out with “Retrograde” by James Blake:
He released a new album this year and he's been on my mind.
