Playlist Picks: The staff’s weekly tunes for October 11


Mt. Joy’s self titled album (2018) / The Indies

1. “Music to Walk Home By” – Tame Impala 

The flurry of drums, crunchy guitar riff, and soaring vocals of Kevin Parker. Lonerism’s 6th track captures the classic 70’s rock-pop feel and will surely flirt with the top spot on your playlist. – Ben Pease



2. “1985” – Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist

From a sample derived from Bernie Mac’s “The Kings of Comedy,” to an incredible electric guitar riff, to the immaculate flow of Freddie Gibbs, this song will surpass expectations of any hip-hop fan. – Nick Miller



3. “Sheep” – Mt. Joy

With impeccable acoustics and a strong indie vibe, Mt. Joy’s single compares similarly to the Lumineers. The buildup to the chorus will have you cranking up your car’s volume all the way up. – Sarah Mayer



4. “Sultans of Swing” – Dire Straits

The guitar lead on Dire Straits classic tune will have you tapping your foot. Mark Knopfler’s voice takes you right          back to the seventies, and the guitar solo urges you to dance. – Elena Yu



5. “Nobody has to know” – Thomas Headon

From the very first verse you’ll be hooked into the lyrics of the song. Soothing drum taps and strums of guitar will have you bobbing your head to the beat of Headon’s newest  single.  – Megan Voorhees
