New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 4-4-12

Spring returned in ATL, but someone might have got the seasons confused because its more like Summer here. Santigold, Tanlines, Edward Sharpe and Free Energy are here to let you know: they aren’t confused and essentially picked up where they left off since we last heard them. Elsewhere, Cudder and Dot Da Genius get into […]

MP3: Free Energy – Electric Fever

70s style guitar riffs. Care free lyrics. More cowbell. Free Energy is back. If they ever film a Dazed & Confused sequel, they should probably have these guys compose the entire soundtrack. Take a listen and download the soon to be Spring-time anthem below: Look for Free Energy’s sophomore album Love Sign later this year.

Showstopper ’11: Free Energy, Brad Paisley, The Features (2/9-2/12)

As if Girl Talk’s fiesta at Tabernacle wasn’t enough, 2011 is already looking like a stellar year for concerts. Last week continued the trend. It didn’t occur to me that cowboys and hipsters have something in common: flannel. 2/9/11 – Free Energy w/The Postelles – The Earl I’ve been on board with Free Energy’s brand […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 6-12-10

Summa, Summa, Summa-time. Plenty of new good music for the pool or wherever you’ll be enjoying my favorite season. Free Energy continues to make laid back rock jams that sound straight out of “Dazed and Confused” and Jay-Z makes M.I.A.’s official remix to “XXXO” super-official. Cee-Lo steps out on his own with a whistle-filled mid-tempo […]

The Hood Internet: Drake vs Free Energy

DJ STV SLV of The Hood Internet takes two of the best new acts from 2009 and puts their strengths to work. Drake’s sing-song flow from “Say Something” glides over the ’70’s rock inspired Free Energy backing surprisingly well. Makes you wonder what Drake would have looked like if he would have been cast in […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 10-06-09

If there had to be a theme for this latest mixtape, it would most likely be mistaken identity. All over the board, artists sound like someone else. Editors got all synth-tastic on their lead single “Papillion”, reminiscent of the Killers. Sea Wolf went with dark and epic, like Win Butler & Arcade Fire with “Wicked […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 6-25-09

I’d like to put these out faster than 1 month at a time, but that seems to be my average right now.  Not for a lack of good music either.  This selection has more Gossip (“Men  In Love” an amazing album, btw ), more Camera Obscura (“The Sweetest Thing”) and more brit pop via Little […]
