MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 6-09-17 ft. Krrum, Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem & more

There is a lot to be excited about with the change in seasons to warmer weather. I expect the sunshine, patio perching, and summer-ready new music. I did not expect brand new music from two of my all time favorites: LCD Soundsystem and Arcade Fire. Win Butler & co’s “Everything Now” is probably more ‘summery’ […]

February’s mixtape still features the returns of many JayeL Audio favorites, including the xx, Cold War Kids, Spoon, and the Shins. However, this collection is led by a number of newcomers that give hope for new bands to follow in 2017.

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 1-22-17 ft Marian Hill, Electric Guest, Kid Cudi, Sylvan Esso + more

2017 is here and I managed to wrap up my annual lists for 2016 (barely). Though I am done counting down 2016, there was a ton of great new music released in Nov/Dec that should not be missed. Kid Cudi made a quality return on his latest album, complete with two solid Andre 3000 features. […]

Michigan Rattlers – Last Week

I offered a preview of up and coming duo Michigan Rattlers on my most recent mixtape, but their brief, but growing catalog has been on constant replay over the past month or so. “Illinois Sky” and “Sweet Diane” offer up approachable Americana with relatable storytelling reminiscent of Dawes and The Jayhawks. Graham Young and Adam […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 6-18-16

This month’s mixtape has plenty of summertime sounds to go around. Leeds-based act Krrum once again kicks off the mix with upbeat rhythms of “Hard On You” before Glass Animals pull off an excellent feat of sounding like Yeasayer mixed with sounds of Timbaland’s past on “Life Itself”. Other sunshine ready tunes include SACHI’s swirling […]

Those big name acts are all huge releases that deserve their own listening sessions, but for now, let’s focus on other tracks you should […]
