CV October Playlist
The days are getting shorter, the quad is covered with vibrant, falling leaves, and midterms are happening. This can only mean one thing: it's finally fall at Bucknell! Make sure your playlists are anything but pumpkin spice (unless that's your thing, in which case, go for it) this fall by checking out Campus Vinyl's very own October Playlist. Tyler is vibing on “GOT IT GOOD FT. Craig David” by KAYTRANADA:
This song is a sensual R&B-electronica masterpiece. Turn it on and curl up next to that special someone, and you'll realize just how good you got it.
Laur can’t stop listening to “WALLS” by Kings of Leon:
The title track from Kings of Leon’s latest album is simple and beautiful. The piano-driven melody and soft acoustic guitar are perfect for any relaxing fall playlist.
Lukas is loving “LoveSick” Mura Masa ft. ASAP Rocky:
Very chill vibes by Mura Masa, as well as strong verses from my favorite artist, ASAP Rocky
Jason is rediscovering Bon Iver with “22 (OVER S∞∞N)”:
It is officially fall and that means one artist will be getting much more playtime: Bon Iver. He is traditionally the indie folk poster boy of melancholy and isolation, translated via guitar into hits such as "Skinny Love" and "Holocene". His new, unicode-character ridden album has changed that. Electronic influences permeate throughout, making the album feel like a Yeezus-inspired reaction from what made Bon Iver so big. In short, it's quite an interesting album.
Staci is throwing it back to summertime with “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” by Phantogram:
I've been revisiting one of my summer favorites, a hypnotic and brooding track that gets better upon each listen.
Jack is digging “Chucky vs. The Giant Tortoise” by Dance Gavin Dance:
This is my pick because it is the lead single of Dance Gavin Dance's recently released album, Mothership. Dance Gavin Dance has always been a band that puts out music with a fantastic range of screaming vocals, high-pitched vocals, and intricate guitar parts that are never too heavy. While on first listen, it may be a little much for the average listener to take in, Dance Gavin Dance is a great band to help people explore the heavier spectrum of the alternative scene and “Chucky vs. The Giant Tortoise” is another banger that represents the band well.
Lauren’s pick is “You Can’t Look Back” by Taking Back Sunday:
This band is incredible and they recently released a new album. This is my favorite song from it.
Alex likes “Nothing Good Ever Happens At The Goddamn Thirsty Crow” by Father John Misty:
A catchy song with greatly entertaining/cynical lyrics.
MK has “Ophelia” by The Lumineers on repeat:
Great song off of the Lumineers' newest album.
