This November we’ve celebrated reasons why we give thanks and music is one of the biggest things we are grateful for. Below our staff has shared their picks and we’re looking forward to this holiday season!

“Unravel Me” by Sabrina Claudio

“Super smooth r&b that I really can’t get off repeat. I’m in awe of this woman!” – Sarah Saydun, Pathways Coordinator

“They Say” by Wu Tang ft Redman

“Here we go again the Wu Tang saga continues after years of nothing we got this” – Corey DePina, Youth Development and Performance Manager

“Blackstar” by David Bowie

“What a way to go! Bowie releases “Blackstar,” his 25th album on his 69th birthday and dies two days later. A spirit gift!” – Avi Salloway, Z-Tech Live Sound Coordinator

“Pearly” by Palm

“Palm writes backwards future music that will turn your brain upside down and inside out. They are an incredible must see live band!” –Nicole Pompei, Teaching Artist

“The Best of Times” by Sage Francis

“This song feels powerful to me. It makes me feel like I am part of something larger when I listen to it; truly tapped into a holistic human experience.” – Nikala Peroni, Development & Communications Associate

“Surf” by John Cushing Big Band

” ‘Surf’ is a celebration of life, as one ‘rides the wave.’ ” –Scott Mizrachi, Community Engagement Coordinator

“Sugar for the Pill” by Slowdive

“After 20+ years away from the scene, Slowdive has returned stronger than ever – Sugar for the Pill features a catchy melody and a healthy dose of reverb, satisfying all of your shoegaze needs.” – Magdalena Abrego, Teaching Artist

“Tessellate (Cover)” by Emma Louise

“I love Alt-J, but this cover by Emma Louise on Like a Version is a luxurious and languid journey that almost sounds like the ghost of the original. I love hearing it.” – Julianna Quiroz, Administrative Assistant

“Freedom Is Free” by Chicano Batman

“A gorgeous song coupled with an excruititing video that contradicts and playfully introduces themes of liberation and confinement.” – Rene Dongo, Radio Program Coordinator

“I Wanna Be Like You” by Ibeyi

“For longest time I thought this song was about missing your younger self (which I kinda liked for being nostalgic) but then I learned that its about wanting to be like your twin (which I can’t relate to). Still like it though!” – Brittany Thomas, Radio Station Manager
