NEW MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 2-14-13

It’s not a Valentine’s Day mix specifically, but consider this collection of 24 tracks a gift from me. Considering the mind boggling number of new 2013 big albums being announced everyday, as soon as I send this another huge single will be released from someone…but here we go anyways. Local Natives have many harmonious tracks […]

Cover: Fun “Somebody That I Used to Know” ft Hayley Williams

I’ve avoided the Gotye covers for the most part because I’m such a fan of the original. This one isn’t too shabby, but I have to admit I was expecting more. Thoughts?

Fiery collaborations from Tiesto w/Tegan & Sara (“Feel It In My Bones), David Guetta w/KiD CuDi (“Memories”), Ducksauce aka DJ A-Trak and Armand Van Helden (“Anyway”) […]

Fun.: Indie Pop Supergroup

Persistence pays off I suppose.  Last August, I heard the Format were going on an indefinite hiatus.  I was bummed, but the good news was lead singer Nate Ruess was joining forces with a couple of indie pop favorites, Andrew Dost of Anathallo and Jack Antonoff of Steel Train to create the band, Fun. Their […]
