NEW MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 10-04-11

Similar to last month, the ladies of indie music continue to have blogs, ipods and Spotify on lockdown. Florence and the Machine continue their streak of anthems (“Shake It Out”), Feist eerily charms (“Graveyard”) and St. Vincent gets poetic about society (“Cruel”). Bubbling acts like Alabama Shakes, Lydia Loveless and Meiko also carry the lady […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 1-12

New business in the rap, indie, covers and electro realm.  This eccentric edition features a baby-crazy anti-folk singer (Emmy the Great), an alien-human love saga (Janelle Monae), one of The Black Keys looking for solo success (Dan Auerbach) and a collaboration by 2 of my favorite bands of last year (Vampire Weekend/Chromeo).
