IAHI Staff Picks: Music Edition with Mimi Oluwafemi

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!
