MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 10-17-16 ft The Weeknd, Bon Iver, Haley Bonar & more

jayel-audio-8-21-16With the coming of fall, my tastes tend to lean toward more folk, rock, and blues, but this month’s mixtape adds a bit of electronic as well. The Chainsmokers continue their 2016 hit parade with Phoebe Ryan in tow, while Remix Friday alum Louis the Child drops the aptly title original “Fire”. Edmonton’s Travis Bretzer gave a repeat-worthy cover over DJ Snake’s “Middle” a psych rock spin, and RAC updates Jai Wolf’s “Drive” in hypnotic fashion.

As you’ll hear, I am still a bit #Wayhomesick with new tracks from the likes of AlunaGeorge and Lucius, and Wayhome #1 performers Sylvan Esso. Elsewhere, another Wayhome alum, The Darcys, bring a bit of ’80s nostalgia pop on “Miracle” (I hear echoes of Hall & Oates, and I approve). Aside from that, The Weeknd made a surprise return with some upstarts named Daft Punk (heard of them?).

Quality guitar-based returns from Shakey Graves, Haley Bonar and Kings of Leon were some of my most played this month, but electronic-influenced sounds were probably my favorites. Newcomer Moses Sumney chills on “Worth It”, while Francis & the Lights builds on a recent breakthrough with “May I Have This Dance”. Of course, the current king of folktronica Justin Vernon returned with another superb entry to his discography on 22, A Million, and “33 God” was an instant favorite. If this mixtape doesn’t suit your tastes, just listen to that album for the rest of the year.
