What JS Editors Are Listening to Now

Nothing lifts our mood quite like music—and we've never needed more of a happiness boost than in this moment. Whether it's hip hop, indie, or pop, we're turning to volume way up this month. Here's are all the tracks JS editors are listening to now.

“Running has been my sanctuary from all the noise these past few weeks, and I’ve got Sia on repeat. The Greatest, Never Give Up, Cheap Thrills, Move Your Body, Unstoppable, Bird Set Free… These tracks work on so many levels right now.” — Lindsey Olander, Senior Editor

“Lately I’ve been drawn to uplifting music, especially folk and rock from the 60s and 70s. Nina Simone’s Ain’t Got No – I Got Life is one song that has been seeing a lot of play time. Even though we’re in a strange time of quarantine and social distancing, it’s still the beginning of spring and I can’t help but enjoy the return of sunshine and blossoming trees. This song reminds me to try to see things with a “glass half-full” attitude.” — Gretchen Moosbrugger Dorosz, Photo Director

“I’ve been listening to Surfaces’ new album, Horizons, nonstop this month. The tracks all give off positive vibes and make for great background music while I’m working or cleaning.” — Jackie Homan, Style + Travel Editor

“We can all use a little dance break while stuck inside and Dua Lipa’s new album Future Nostalgia has provided me with some serious solo dance sessions at home. The highlights: the White Town sampling bop Love Again and the funk grooves of Pretty Please. Pour yourself a glass of wine, crank up this album, and get lost in the retro-inspired beats.”  — David Hattan, Photo Editor

“I’ve been anticipating this album ever since I heard Jessie Reyez’s “Figures” in 2017, and it was worth the wait–it’s been blaring on every audio device I have in my apartment. It’s so emotionally raw and unfiltered that it hurts (but in a good way) and it’s bringing out feelings I thought I lost (maybe that’s due to this quarantine we’re in though as well, who knows!) Nonetheless, this album deserves a serious listen; the lyrics are perfection.” — Tyler Schoeber, Production Specialist

“When Bill Withers died at the end of March, I decided to revisit all of my favorite songs of his–Lovely Day, Use Me, Ain’t No Sunshine. His music has been playing non-stop in my house. He had such an incredible voice and was an amazing song writer.” — Clara Sedlak, Executive Editor
