Playlist of the Week Playlist of the Issue is a 5-10 song playlist of songs that you, the Seattle Academy students, are listening to. Each issue a new student’s playlist will be featured. If you’d like to be featured, send me, Alice Flood, an email (email@example.com), and we’ll discuss from there. Playlist of the Issue knows no limits as to the genres of music; we want to know what YOU like! I want this feature to help us all discover new music as well as learn what kind of stuff our friends are listening to. This issue features the playlist of Jackson Lanning ‘13.
“Sexual Healing” - Marvin Gaye
Just a fun listen with high energy. “Sexual Healing” is a nice upbeat song.
“Me Again” - Dom Kennedy
I recently heard Dom Kennedy for the first time. A friend introduced him to me, and all of his stuff sounds good. Not in the mainstream and so isn’t like any of the pop songs you hear on the radio.
“Hol’ Up” - Kendrick Lamar
Kendrick is a newish artist whom I just started listening to. This song is great for driving or just hanging out, upbeat but laid-back at the same time.
“Guess Who’s Back” - Domo Genesis
Domo is from OF (Odd Future), but his solo music contrasts with the work of Odd Future. Classic, standard, rap over a solid beat. “Guess Who’s Back” is a good listen.
“Call From the Bank” - Nipsey Hussle
This is yet another feel good, driving song set to the music of MGMT. It also provides enough energy for a workout, and Nipsey with the MGMT sounds cool.
“Bass” - A$AP Rocky
A$AP Rocky is an emerging artist, definitely an up and comer. He has a unique sound.
“#Cruiselife” - Curren$y
Typical Curren$y. He flows well with the beat of Kanye’s “Drive Slow.” Smooth, laid-back, everything Curren$y is.
