MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 8-29-17 feat. HAIM, Canaro, RAC, David Myles & more

A lot has happened in the music world since 4th of July and I’ll admit, I’ve been hoarding a lot of music since that time. Arcade Fire put out a danceable new album with a side of social commentary, RAC stayed consistent with a solid sophomore album + an excellent remix (“Ordinary Madness”), and The […]

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. However, this collection is led by a number of newcomers that give hope for new bands to follow in 2017.

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 6-18-16

This month’s mixtape has plenty of summertime sounds to go around. Leeds-based act Krrum once again kicks off the mix with upbeat rhythms of “Hard On You” before Glass Animals pull off an excellent feat of sounding like Yeasayer mixed with sounds of Timbaland’s past on “Life Itself”. Other sunshine ready tunes include SACHI’s swirling […]
