Tigers Jaw – Cool

Who would have guessed that I’d pick a Tigers Jaw track for Jam of the Day? Charmer, released in early June of this year, is their first full length album since 2010. I had already heard the singles, but I listened to it for the first time all the way through last week on my all too often drive from East Lansing to Sterling Heights. And then I listened to it again. And again. Cool is the first track on the album, and it’s my favorite to sing along to. I hope that it rips your heart to shreds the way it does mine ;-*

Blood Orange – You’re Not Good Enough

For this week’s jam of the day I’m throwing it back to the ’13, with Blood Orange – You’re Not Good Enough. Not only is Dev Hynes talented in so many ways, but this album of his in 2013 rocked my world. The song itself is so catchy and reminds me that you never have to settle, as corny as that is. So in order to represent my sentimental feelings towards this album, I’m making this the Jam of the Day.

Death Grips – Birds

Considering how Death Grips just broke up a couple days ago I’ve legitimately been struggling to come to terms with the fact that one of my favorite bands doesn’t exist anymore. One of my favorite memories of Death Grips was when I got on facebook one day after class and just saw this song posted on their facebook with the cryptic video, with absolutely no explanation.

Nnamdi Ogbonnaya – Art School Crush

This super drunk British man at his friend’s bachelor party stumbled up to me because I was speaking in English and proceeded to slurrily discuss how awesome The Who is. Then, before being pulled away by his mates and before he puked on me, he kept telling me to check out this dude named Nnamdi. So I did, and this is a song of his. And it’s awesome.

The Pact – #37 – 7/7/14

The U.S. is out of the World Cup, MLB All-Stars have been announced, and the Red Wings did nothing in free agency.

The U.S. fell to Belgium in the knockout round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the panel is curious if America will keep watching after Team USA is gone?

Also, is Miguel Cabrera the only Tiger deserving a start in the Midsummer Classic? Were all deserving Tigers awarded a roster spot? Can Porcello slip in with help from Detroit…and Chicago?

Finally, the Detroit Red Wings were turned down by at least five different defensmen in their free agency search for a blueliner. Were the Wings simply going after unreachable talent or are players preferring anywhere but Detroit and Babcock’s bench?
