Traveling Music

In the next week or so every SU student will begin making his or her way back to CUSEland to rid their selves of their sober/frat-less/Chuck-less summers before classes start on the 27th.

Unlike my 27-minute drive to campus from home, most of you find yourself traveling five or more hours to the homeland. Unless you are driving with a friend or enjoy sitting in a silent car, most of you are preparing an awesome playlist to sing along with.

But for those of you who do not have an awesome playlist prepared and you only have a couple days until its go time – don’t worry, I’m here to help!

As I scroll through my Spotify (iTunes is so last semester), I find the jams that I frequently find myself playing at maximum volume cruising down 81.  I gathered these songs together to help you start a playlist or to add this onto your current list.

Now I never said you would actually like any of my music, but give it a chance. You will find alternative, old rock, country and pop music so I might tickle all of your fancies.

Listen up…

  1. Call me Maybe- Carly Rae Jepsen (Yup. You read that right)
  2. Electric Feel- MGMT
  3. Take a Walk- Passion Pit
  4. Feel Like a Rock Star- Kenny Chesney
  5. Animal- Miike Snow
  6. Black & Blue- Miike Snow
  7. I will always love you- Timeflies Tuesday
  8. Pontoon- Little Big Town
  9. Carry on Wayward Son- Kansas
  10. 40 Day Dream- Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
  11. How We Do (Party)- Rita Ora
  12. Back In Time – Pitbull
  13. You Used To Hold Me- Calvin Harris
  14. Fade Into Darkness- Avicii
  15. My Feelings For You- Avicii
  16. Don’t Stop Believin’- Journey (OBVIOUS)

Safe Travels!

My love for indie folk music comes out when listening to The Tallest Man On Earth and their relating genre bands. Everything from The Avett Brothers to Bright Eyes is covered in this genre and 1904 definitely has the right feel to belong in this category.

Every two years it seems like they produce something new. On June 12, they will be releasing There’s No Leaving Now, which will have 1904 on it. Below is the track list of the album.

01. To Just Grow Away
02. Revelation Blues
03. Leading Me Now
04. 1904
05. Bright Lanterns
06. There’s No Leaving Now
07. Wind and Walls
08. Little Brother
09. Criminals
10. On Every Page

I feel like the beginning of summer is the time to release new albums in the music industry. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros just released one and now Marina is.

Marina and the Diamonds, if you haven’t heard of them, have the sound of several female artists. With relatable tracks to Florence & The Machine, Ellie Goulding, Regina Spektor, and Lana Del Rey they have the attention of many. My ultimate favorite song of theirs is “I Am Not A Robot,” but all of their songs will get you dancing around.

On July 10 of this year, Marina will release their second album in the U.S. However, you can preorder their album now on their website,

1. Bubblegum Bitch
2. Primadonna
3. Lies
4. Homewrecker
5. Starring Role
6. The State of Dreaming
7. Power & Control
8. Living Dead
9. Teen Idle
10. Valley of the Dolls
11. Hypocrates
12. Fear and Loathing

Three tracks were leaked in 2011 while she was touring with Katy Perry during her California Dreams Tour. “Sex, Yeah”, “Living Dead” and “Jealousy” were the three tracks leaked with an additional single “Primadonna” which debuted as a single and went to number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.  Also, while reading on Digital Spy the next track announced is called “Power and Control”.

The epitome of a throwback, pop music style

To celebrate Music Monday, the editors at Jerk bring you a playlist featuring a list of contemporary songs inspired by some oldie genres. These artists have given us some updates on some tunes from all over the musical history timeline, grabbing inspiration from Louis XIV all the way up to the older brothers of the emo kids that dominated the 1980s. These songs invoke not simpler, but older times and maybe your greatest great-grandfather would have listened to a version, but in his day, they probably wouldn’t have a synthesizer. (more…)
