However, this collection is led by a number of newcomers that give hope for new bands to follow in 2017. National Parks charmed on my first experience with their sounds on melodic (and excellently […]

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. […]

Back at it again with a mixtape stuffed with the latest in indie rock, pop, dance, electronic, and even a bit of hip-hop. I don’t have much of a preamble this week as I’m still nursing my wounds from national and Metro Detroit political failures. I’ll only say that I hope this time of frustration […]

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 […]

With the coming of fall, my tastes tend to lean toward more folk, rock, and blues, but this month’s mixtape adds a bit of electronic as well. The Chainsmokers continue their 2016 hit parade with Phoebe Ryan in tow, while Remix Friday alum Louis the Child drops the aptly title original “Fire”. Edmonton’s Travis Bretzer […]

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 […]
