The countdown continues with tracks #40-31. Catch up on the previous 20 tracks if you missed them last week: #60-51 #50-41 40. Interpol – All The Rage Back Home I heavily anticipate and hype many reunions, but Interpol’s reintroduction to music couldn’t have started better than “All The Rage Back Home”.

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 10-23-14 ft The Lone Bellow, Karen Harding, Walk The Moon, Chet Faker & more

I’ve received four notices to put out a mixtape and they were all absolutely correct that I was overdue. Hopefully 35 tracks of new indie, dance, pop, folk and remixes will suffice for October. This month’s mix decidedly leans toward the folk and indie rock end of the musical spectrum, which tends to occur seasonally. […]

alt-J – Left Hand Free

If alt-J’s first single “Hunger of the Pine” was too experimental for you, you’ll might appreciate “Left Hand Free”. The new release is the second track from This Is All Yours and finds the Leeds trio riffing like a Southern rock band.

NEW MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 11-18-12

An overstuffed mix of the latest indie cuts just in time for Thanksgiving. Previous mixtape mainstays include Local Natives, who return with “Breakers” and prep the follow-up to one of my favorite albums of the past 10 years. Elsewhere, K-Os continues to show why he is one of hip-hop’s most diverse acts on “The Dog […]

alt-J – Buffalo ft Mountain Man

Recent Mercury Prize winners (album of the year in UK and Ireland) alt-J didn’t waste any time in taking advantage of their newfound exposure. Between the praise for An Awesome Wave and being recently covered by Mumford & Sons, why not release a new single? The soothing sounds of “Buffalo” can be found on the […]
