MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 10-17-16 ft The Weeknd, Bon Iver, Haley Bonar & more

With the coming of fall, my tastes tend to lean toward more folk, rock, and blues, but this month’s mixtape adds a bit of electronic as well. The Chainsmokers continue their 2016 hit parade with Phoebe Ryan in tow, while Remix Friday alum Louis the Child drops the aptly title original “Fire”. Edmonton’s Travis Bretzer […]

Fickle Friends – For You

Brighton duo Fickle Friends have been one of my favorite discoveries of 2014. Their infectious indie pop anthems “Swim” and “Play” are repeat-worthy and can shift my mood for the better no matter the situation. Singer Natti Shiner described “For You”‘s lyrics as “realizing a relationship isn’t ever going to go anywhere, despite how sad […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 5-19-14 ft Morningsiders, Bad Suns, Zedd, Lykke Li & more

JayeL Audio 1-29-14 from jayelaudio on 8tracks Radio. Still freezing? Yeah, me too. Maybe we should all stay inside and listen to this new mixtape of end of 2013/early 2014 indie, dance, folk and alt country. St. Vincent makes a case for early MVP of 2014 with “Digital Witness”, while Broken Bells continues to show […]

Fickle Friends – SWIM

….and we’re back. Michigan is essentially shut down from the wintry weather (could have been worse though), but newcomers Fickle Friends have a jam to melt at least a few inches of snow. “Swim” has an upbeat tempo that shines with new wave influence that would align perfectly next to Grouplove and GIVERS on your […]
