WES GATES / IT PROJECT MANAGER
Kid Cudi, MGMT, Ratatat with "Pursuit of Happiness (nightmare)"
Sometimes a song always manages to hit you right in the feels. Everything that's shine ain't always gonna be gold.
FRANKY ZAMBRANO / MARKETING COORDINATOR
The xx with "Intro"
I would always play this song on my morning walk to class in college. It’s cool and mellow but it would always pump me up to get stuff done. Try it out… 60% of the time, it works every time.
TONY MARTINEZ / DIRECTOR OF MARKETING
Twista feat. Kanye West & Jamie Foxx with "Slow Jamz"
I love this track, throws me back to my dorm room college days. So many great things about the video too: oversized jerseys, pinwheel fitted caps, cameos from much younger artists (Consequence, Common, John Legend), and of course that old Kanye. I miss the old Kanye, straight from the Go Kanye....I hate the new Kanye.
ADAM MOYER / FOUNDER & CEO
Billy Joel with "The Great Suburban Showdown"
A great song about the push and pull of the place where you grew up, which in my case was Northern Virginia in the suburbs of Washington, DC. The Dad / lawn mowing reference at 1:30 hits close to home.
ALEXIS PACE / FINANCIAL ANALYST
The Revivalists with "Wish I Knew You"
I know this song came out a few months ago, but it came on while I was driving home to visit my parents last weekend and it was perfect for the ride and weather. Seemed fitting as the anthem to my road trip back to where I grew up.
DREW LEWIS / SENIOR ACCOUNT MANAGER
Rocket From the Crypt with "On a Rope"
One of the best bands outta San Diego— these dudes used to put on a killer live show. This one’s a banger!
ED RAINEY / VP OF FINANCE & OPERATIONS
Charles Bradley with "Changes"
To me, music is and should be emotion embodied through sound. No one did it better than Charles Bradley. RIP Charles. The world will definitely be going through Changes now that you are gone.
KEEGAN DUNFORD / CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER
The Black Keys with "Meet Me in the City"
The Black Keys do a great job of adding some rock flare to cover Junior Kimbrough's original blues tune. I dig the raw and soulful guitar and vocals. Highly recommend adding this song to your next road trip playlist.
JAKOB BECHGAARD / DIRECTOR OF E-COMMERCE & DIGITAL MARKETING
Dr. Dog with "That Old Black Hole"
This song has been in steady rotation on my personal playlist since I first started listening to Dr. Dog. I’ve seen them live a couple of times and they never disappoint.
