MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 9-3-15 ft JR Jr, RAC, Grace Potter, Lane 8 & more

This summer has been a hectic one for new music (Apple Music! Wayhome! Dr. Dre!), but also for myself. Amid job changes and a wild semester, I listened to a lot of music but regrettably was not able to distribute it to the masses. Let’s hope those wrongs can be corrected with a mixtape (or […]

The weather is finally heating up (for real this time) and so are the quality summer releases. Electronic acts like Disclosure, Whilk & Misky and Flume have been teasing more than satiable singles, while Jamie xx unveiled an early contender for album of the year with In Colour.

Winter finals are complete, so I can finally get back to the music.

Its mixtape time. No foolin’. This month’s edition of JayeL Audio has an adequate balance of a multitude of genres, that should please most of you. Indie pop shined with percussive cuts like Robyn Sherwell’s hypnotizing “Islander” and Broken Back’s tropical pop influenced gem “Hacyon Birds”. Hazy rock made a triumphant return with Tame Impala’s […]

Gosh Pith – Prints

artwork by Tony Katai When we last heard from rising Detroit duo Gosh Pith they were dabbling in hazy indie pop with R&B influences and Kid Cudi samples. I was hesitant to label them as “experimental” then, as the sounds they crafted were clearly beyond speculative. Just to keep everyone from penciling them in a […]

JayeL Audio 2-16-15 ft St. Vincent, Hozier, Lord Huron, Osca & more

2014 was a solid year for music, most of us could probably agree. Although I don’t know if there were as many big names returning with new work so early in the year as there are in 2015. Just last week alone, Hot Chip, Florence & the Machine, Alabama Shakes and Great Lake Swimmers all […]

Calexico – Cumbia de Donde

My introduction to Calexico was through their frequent work with Neko Case and choice cover of Arcade Fire’s “Ocean of Noise”. Aside from helping other acts, the talented band fronted by Joey Burns and John Convertino, have been together for nearly two decades playing everything from to Tejano-influenced music to indie rock and Americana.
