December Playlist

Screen-Shot-2015-12-08-at-4.54.52-PM.png

It finally starting to feel like winter in Lewisburg.  We here at Campus Vinyl are breaking out our mittens and scarves and plugging in our headphones under hats and earmuffs to listen to the December playlist.  Listen on your ride home this winter break, while you’re studying, or taking a much needed study break. Enjoy! Nick B. is branching out with “Fight Night” by Migos

I'm not very immersed in the rap game but I definitely can appreciate a good rap tune. While I was home over Thanksgiving Break, one of my buddies put on this group during a bonfire and they're definitely worth a listen.

Ryan G. is blasting “Warriors” by Imagine Dragons

The reason why this is my song of the month is that it is just an all around great song to get pumped up to whether it be for a huge test or even a game

Jason H. is listening to “Record Year” by Eric Church

From his surprise new album, Church delivers a "Bon Iver of Nashville" break-up banger.

Morgan K. can’t get enough of “Jusfayou” by KAMAU

I’m so into this song as of late.  Ridiculously well arranged and too catchy to handle.  I kind of wanted to keep it to myself, but to be honest, it’s way too good to hide from the world.

Laur H. is relaxing to “Vapour” by Vancouver Sleep Clinic

My song for December is "Vapour" by Vancouver Sleep Clinic. Its soft, acoustic vibe is reminiscent of a Bon Iver track, and makes it a great song to wind down to after a stressful day of studying for finals.

Joe E. is getting comfy with “Blue in Green” by Miles Davis

Nothing pairs better with the mellow setting of December than the sounds of Miles Davis’s absolute classic “Blue in Green.” Listening to this song makes me want to sit by a fireplace, read a book, and enjoy the comfortable fact that I’m not outside during the brutal Pennsylvania winter.

Tyler D. is listening to "Never Let It Die" by Watsky

In a time where so much music is negative, self-glorifying, and inspired by vice, "Never Let It Die" is an uplifting track delivered in Watsky's signature nasal, so-whitebread-it's-cool tone. An affirmation of the power and value of art, this song is just what the next generation of aspiring young artists needs to hear!

Laura Y is digging "Order More" by G-Eazy

I'll be honest, I'm an OG G-Eazy fan, and I haven't been a fan of his newer work in a long, long while. But with the impending release of his album These Things Happen When It's Dark Outside, I've been getting into his music again. One standout single is "Order More," featuring Starrah on vocals. It's a slow, sexy hip-hop track that would go perfectly with a glass of red wine and red-bottoms.

Ryan H. is getting into “Milk Lizard” by Dillinger Escape Plan

This is probably the progressive metal band’s most popular song. It features crazy time signatures, trumpets, and even a piano breakdown. Mathcore doesn’t get any better than this.

Staci D. has rediscovered "The Wrote & The Writ" by Johnny Flynn

This is one of those songs that I overdid a few years ago but have recently come back to, remembering why I loved it so much in the first place.  Johnny Flynn is the perfect soundtrack for sitting in the warmth of your room watching through the window as the cold days pass by.
