During quarantine, the staff at the IAHI have been busy both in and out of the “office” and have been staying sane with some much needed music. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite jams that keep us focused, calm or put us in a dancing mood!

Today’s list and commentary is brought to you by Mimi Oluwafemi, a graduate research assistant at the IAHI and graduate student at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law. She graduates next week!

*Warning: Some of these songs contain strong language and may require adult supervision*

1.    Killing Strangers by Marilyn Manson – Well let’s hope we aren’t killing strangers everyone.

2.    Black Sheep by Metric – The iconic Metric jam

3.    It Might Be Time by Tame Impala – I can’t be a millennial without some Tame Impala.

4.    Change the World by Noah Hawley, Jeff Russo – This is a super cool cover made for FX’s Legion tv show. It’s a bit psychedelic and dreamy and just cool.

5.    Deadcrush by alt-J – weird song with the best bass ever

6.    Babylon (ft. Kendrick Lamar) by SZA – Great song that I don’t get the play it should

7.    Sol by NAVVI – More great bass.

8.    24/7 by The Neighbourhood – I went to see them in concert and it was kind of a letdown but all of their albums have such great California sound.

9.    Black Out Days by Phantogram – Unstoppable bop.

10. West Coast by Lana Del Rey – LANA! ENOUGH SAID!

We hope you enjoyed this list and stay tuned for more staff music picks!
