Clearly, the crisis we’re living in is unprecedented for any person of any generation alive today. People are in pain physically, emotionally, fiscally, and beyond. These events will be┬áscars that […]

PREMIERE: Canaro – Depth

Blog posts have been few and far between these days, but the new indie/electronic pop sounds of Canaro are certainly worthy enough to dust off the keyboard. The Detroit six-piece are now “three for three” when it comes to replay-worthy hooks according to my count with new track “Depth”. The intoxicating single spirals with Liz […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 2-22-17 ft the xx, Shy Luv, Sofi Tukker, Thundercat & more

February’s mixtape still features the returns of many JayeL Audio favorites, including the xx, Cold War Kids, Spoon, and the Shins.

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. […]

Back at it again with a mixtape stuffed with the latest in indie rock, pop, dance, electronic, and even a bit of hip-hop. I don’t have much of a preamble this week as I’m still nursing my wounds from national and Metro Detroit political failures. I’ll only say that I hope this time of frustration […]

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

With 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 […]
