2014 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks #20-11

20. Jack + Eliza – Hold the Line The way Jack + Eliza’s sunny vocals intertwined to perfection on their debut single “Hold The Line”. Their method of exchanging solo lines before harmonizing together wasn’t new, but excels thanks to their charming tones. I always envisioned this song best played at a beach-side sunset. 19. […]

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. […]

CATHEDRALS – OOO AAA

San Francisco’s CATHEDRALS (aka Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin) may have crafted their most ambitious and perfect song yet. While Jenkins and Hwin have been ear-pleasing on previous cuts (see “Harlem” and “Want My Love“), the duo’s vocals intertwine with harmonic excellence on new single “OOO AAA”. The song title may not be mind blowing, […]

CATHEDRALS – Want My Love

The San Fran duo returns with “Want My Love”, a slow-burning nu-R&B cut highlighting Brodie’s enchanting vocals and lush instrumentation from Johnny. Stream “Want My Love” below and look for more […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 3-7-14 ft Little Dragon, Chromeo, Galactic & more

JayeL Audio 3-7-14 from jayelaudio on 8tracks Radio. I don’t know about you, but this month was essentially music overload for me. New albums from St. Vincent (artful and excellent), Pharrell (enjoyable and breezy) and Kid CuDi (awful, I guess I should be surprised anymore), plus fresh, new discoveries from Cathedrals, Plastic Plates and Mr […]

Cathedrals – Harlem

San Francisco’s buzzy new act Cathedrals slides from a slow-rolling synth and 808’s anthem to driving guitar rhythms all in 4 minutes on “Harlem”. I think Diddy would argue that Harlem doesn’t exactly sound like this, but I’m still in favor of it. No word on where these tracks will end up, but counting first […]
