NEW MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 11-23-11

photo via Reckless Times Turns out leaving for almost two weeks means a lot of new music to catch up on. Well worth the wait, of course. Hopefully, you’ve already had time to digest excellent new releases from Florence & the Machine, Childish Gambino and Mayer Hawthorne. If not, I’m betting you will soon. Elsewhere, […]

New Mixtape: 4th of July 2011 – DAY

Who doesn’t love 4th of July? Friends, family, burgers, beer, sunshine, beach, margaritas? Hopefully, these tunes are apt to keep you satisfied in the sand. CSS is the winner of this mix (in my opinion), but Fair Ohs, Josh Rouse and the Knocks put up a fight as well? Let me know your favorite in […]

New Mixtape: Hangout Fest 2K11

Here it is. 3 playlists featuring bands from all three days of the upcoming festival in Gulf Shores, AL. This obvsiously isn’t all the music you’ll hear, but hopefully it will be a lot of it. I could have made a disc of just Black Keys and Cee-Lo tracks, but tried to go for a […]

2010 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks of the Year #27-#16

As we continue on with my favorite tracks of 2010…..#27-#16 27. The Black Keys – Everlasting Light Man likes woman. Man tells her why he should be with woman.

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 11-02-10

The posting around here hasn’t been as active as I would like it to be, at least I’m increasing my mixtape output. Three in one month isn’t too shabby, right? The latest mixtape is a little more reserved than October’s effort, but its still filled with quality hip-hop, dance, folk and indie. Cee-Lo Green continues […]
