JayeL Audio Mixtape

NEW MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 10-04-11

Similar to last month, the ladies of indie music continue to have blogs, ipods and Spotify on lockdown. Florence and the Machine continue their streak of anthems (“Shake It Out”), Feist eerily charms (“Graveyard”) and St. Vincent gets poetic about society (“Cruel”). Bubbling acts like Alabama Shakes, Lydia Loveless and Meiko also carry the lady torch further with throwback sounds and enchanting vocals. My favorite newcomer though is Class Actress who offers up two solid new wave inspired tracks in “Keep You” and “The Weekend”.

Aside from the strength of the females, this mixtape certainly feels like a Fall mixtape in that the slower guitar-driven tracks out weigh the dance cuts. Justice pick up where they left off on dance anthem “Helix”, while Blitzen Trapper continue their alt country twang on “Love The Way You Walk Away” and Umphrey’s McGee bring their multi-instrument approach to “Miami Virtue”. Lastly, I’m not sure anyone else could cover Frank Ocean’s “Swim Good” the way Ed Sheeran did. Check it.
