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

I told myself that I would try not to make the next mixtape more than 25 tracks, but I couldn’t bring myself to cut any of these 29 songs. If that is an indication of what the rest of 2014 holds for music, we are all in for a helluva music year. This month’s mixtape […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 1-29-14 ft Chromeo, Jenny Lewis, Damien Jurado & 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 […]

2011 Wrap-up: Top Tracks of the Year #40-#31

2011 Wrap-Up: Top Albums of the Year – Honorable Mention

CONTEST: 2012 Grammy Nominations

While not always relevant to what the kids listen to these days, last year’s Grammy awards went a long way for big bands in my world that don’t necessarily fall in the “commercial” category. Mumford & Sons and Avett Brothers had breakout performances, while somehow Arcade Fire won top honors for The Suburbs and The […]

New Mixtape: 4th of July 2011 – NITE

Now these are the types of mixtapes I can have a little more fun with. Its not all necessarily brand new music, but hopefully plenty of music to keep you parting into the night. There are new tracks from the likes of Martin Solveig, Asher Roth and Beyonce, but also remixes of favorites like Beastie […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 6-9-11

photo via John Ruby Oh hey there. Plenty of established acts and lots of new artists on this edition. Reptar wins for best new band name though. You wouldn’t know it if you get hypnotized by the pulsing synth of “The Dauphin”, but Young Digerati gets sadistic about women flocking from his “valley” to Southern […]
