MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 1-22-17 ft Marian Hill, Electric Guest, Kid Cudi, Sylvan Esso + more

2017 is here and I managed to wrap up my annual lists for 2016 (barely). Though I am done counting down 2016, there was a ton of great new music released in Nov/Dec that should not be missed. Kid Cudi made a quality return on his latest album, complete with two solid Andre 3000 features. […]

The ladies are finishing summer strong with a wide range sounds and kick off this month’s mixtape in an upbeat fashion.

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 11-14-15

One more mixtape for the weekend. This mix also touches a variety of genres from folk to electronic, but adds in a dash of hip-hop with contributions from Big Grams and Pell. Rather than kicking off the set with the electronic sounds (as I usually do), the indie/folk tracks lead things off because they sounded […]

Covering other artists’ worked has served Ben Bridwell (of Band of Horses) and Sam Beam (of Iron & Wine) quite well in the past (see “Georgia” “Forever Young”), so just imagine how their next project will be together.

Chelsea Lankes – Too Young To Fall In Love (Mötley Crüe cover)

Mötley Crüe is not music I’d normally choose to listen with, but I’m beginning to think any song newcomer Chelsea Lankes touches is more than worthwhile. Fresh off the success of hit “Down For Whatever”, the LA singer/songwriter proved she has the ability to transform hair metal into indie pop gold on “Too Young To […]

2014 was a solid year for music, most of us could probably agree. Although I don’t know if there were as many big names returning with new work so early in the year as there are in 2015. Just last week alone, Hot Chip, Florence & the Machine, Alabama Shakes and Great Lake Swimmers all […]
