In times of social unrest, art often takes a more political turn, reflecting the distress of the times. Music is perhaps the largest medium for protest, with some of the most iconic songs of the last decades being a result of an unjust world. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the Women’s Mar...

Welcome back, Blue Demons! I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing break and is ready to read more of my ramblings on music. I know I am! In thinking about what I should be the first DeJamz theme of the decade, only one came to mind: new beginnings. If anyone else had a horrendous 2019 and is hoping...

You may be looking at the album covers and be thinking that it’s too early for Christmas music. Well, to that I say: too bad. I will field no hatred for me listing my favorite Christmas songs before Thanksgiving, because what am I supposed to do? List my favorite Thanksgiving songs? Don’t make me laugh...

With the quarter quickly coming to an end, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by deadlines and exams. In the event of such stress, it’s always good to have pump-up songs to raise your spirits keep you motivated. Without further ado, here are some of my favorite feel-good jams. Sunflower Rex Orange County Every self-proclaimed in...

While it’s not quite Halloween yet, I see no point in holding off in sharing my favorite spooky jams. There are the quintessential Halloween songs—The Monster Mash, Thriller, etc.— but that’s not this list. For this week’s DeJamz, I’ll include songs that are spooky on a deeper level, because...

We are fully in the swing of autumn, or #SadGirlAutumn, as Twitter calls it. Gone are the days of fun summer jams and the season of moody songs to listen to while looking wistfully outside a CTA window. Here are my picks for moody fall bops.   1. Norman F******g Rockwell Lana Del Rey Despite ...

With the quarter progressing and responsibilities mounting, I often find myself under pressure to tend to all of my duties (for more on that, check out the Opinions section!). Whenever I feel like I can’t take the heat of the school year, listening to music is a foolproof solution to keep calm. In...

Emo’s not dead—and not just the early 2000s songs from My Chemical Romance and Panic! At The Disco. Plenty of modern groups have some seriously sick tunes that will satisfy all your edgy needs. Here are some songs that always make their way onto my playlists one way or another: 1. “Apartment” b...

The school year is in full swing! Summer has seemingly decided to extend itself into fall, filling my current playlist with upbeat songs that are sure to make everyone head-bob while traveling from Lincoln Park to the Loop to home, wherever that may be. Commuting on the train to both campuses gives me time...

Welcome back, Blue Demons! Summer has always been my favorite season, with each year bringing in some new jams. A lot of great new music came out this summer, but I also found myself listening to some old favorites. For the first DeJamz of the year, I thought I would share my favorite songs of this summe...

These past two years at the helm of the Arts & Life section has been both a pleasure and a privilege. At the same time, the task of coming up with a theme for DeJamz every week was a consistent thorn in my side — trust me, it’s harder than it seems. For one, I simply don’t listen to that much...

Since I’ve been a student here, it seems the trend for FEST tends to lean heavily toward hip-hop. Many students take issue with this, but I am certainly not one of those people. As such, with FEST 2019 in the rearview, I’ve already started the painstaking work of setting my hopes unrealistically...
