SONG OF THE DAY: DANNY ELFMAN AND DISNEY CHARACTERS – “THIS IS HALLOWEEN”

Do I even need to say anything? Today’s the day. May your night be full of tricks and treats alike. If you want the full soundtrack to this movie, it’s here.

SONG OF THE DAY: CHANCE THE RAPPER – “ANGELS”

Chance debuted this new song on Monday night on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” It’s an upbeat, surfy type of song with a positive message and references to his newborn daughter. It’s a great song to play in the library on a Wednesday night.

SONG OF THE DAY: GOLDLINK – “DANCE ON ME (BRASSTRACKS REMIX)”

Brasstracks has been on fire with their remixes over the past year. Most recently, they beefed up a GoldLink song with their signature horns. Check out this song and the rest of Brasstracks’ remixes for a good time.

SONG OF THE DAY: VIOLENT FEMMES – “BLISTER IN THE SUN”

I won’t lie, the reason this is the song of the day is simply that I heard a student band play it the other day and I love this tune. Been jamming to it since then, and decided to remind everybody of it. Violent Femmes are weirdly active then inactive then active again, but this song is a perennial classic. Whatever it’s even about. Give it a listen.

SONG OF THE DAY: BOMBADIL – “THANK YOU”

This is one of those simple, calming songs you absentmindedly stick onto your “Study” or “Nighttime” playlist, then realize it doesn’t belong there because the beautifully insightful lyrics keep distracting you from trying to read about energy policy developments in China. It’s a feel-good song, a warm cup of chili in musical form. Plus, the lyrics overflow with valuable life advice if you’re paying any attention at all.

SONG OF THE DAY: DRUNK UNLCE – “REBEL”

This is the debut single from Drunk Uncle, a local band. The catchy versus and chorus build up to an incredibly explosive finale. Their sound is reminiscent of The Killers. Check out more of their music around campus or on their Soundcloud.

SONG OF THE DAY: LEMAITRE – “CLOSER”

A constant piano provides the bouncy foundation for this tune from Lemaitre. Some tasteful vocals are punctuated by energetic horns and bass. This track is an upbeat banger and perfect for a workout or time of hypeness. Enjoy!

SONG OF THE DAY: CAGE THE ELEPHANT – “COME A LITTLE CLOSER”

I hope y’all haven’t forgotten about Cage The Elephant, because these guys are great. Everyone knows them for “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” that came out in like, 2008, but I swear they’ve put out good music since then. For example: “Come a Little Closer.” It’s a bop by any measure, and I was reminded of it yesterday, so I bring it to you today. Have fun with the jam, and find more on Cage The Elephant’s Spotify. They also have an album coming out December 18th.

SONG OF THE DAY: TELEPOPMUSIK – “BREATHE (FHIN FLIP)”

This remix from Fhin has some great funky elements and all the makings of a crowd-pleasing tune. We get some spacy bass at the onset and then a great guitar section towards the end. Enjoy this great electronic track and stay tuned for more!
