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...

Playboi Carti exists almost exclusively on the internet. He became one of the first so-called “Soundcloud rappers” to burst into the mainstream consciousness. But unfortunately for Carti, and fortunately for his fans, his music is plagued by constant leaks. New music somehow finds its way onto Twit...

There’s arguably nowhere better to be than comfortably in the middle ground, regardless of the context. In the musical sense, as I combat the dueling desires for sleep and spring weather festivities, I want some music to match my mood. Something not too slow but not too fast. As Goldilocks would say, so...

The question was simple: What song pumps you up? Below, The DePaulia staff answers. Benjamin Conboy, Editor-in-Chief: "Walk" - Pantera Late-90s heavy metal band Pantera has a knack for punchy, chunky guitar riffs. On "Walk," all it takes is four distorted notes from guitarist Dimebag Darrell (R.I.P.) to create something truly heavy. The chorus is j...

It’s spring in Chicago, which means we all just had the pleasure of suffering through yet another snowstorm on our never-ending trudge toward warm weather. It’s days like these that make me miss the summer weather in New Jersey. To make matters worse, we’re on the horizon of Midwesterners referring to ...

The recently announced lineup for this year’s Lollapalooza conjured up a slew of reactions ranging anywhere from elation to outrage. For me, it settled somewhere between average and disappointing. Last year, it felt like there was a healthy balance between genres and the headliners were all standouts...
