COVER: Iron & Wine + Ben Bridwell – This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)

Covering other artists’ worked has served Ben Bridwell (of Band of Horses) and Sam Beam (of Iron & Wine) quite well in the past (see “Georgia” “Forever Young”), so just imagine how their next project will be together. Bridwell joined Beam and Iron & Wine for an entire of covers ranging from Bonnie Raitt and […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 1-15-15 ft Mark Ronson, Leon Bridges, Misterwives, Father John Misty & more

As you may have noticed, finals and year-end lists occupied the last couple of months of 2014. Despite that, I still caught up on a slew of great songs at the end of 2014 and even a few new tracks in early 2015. Returns of Sharon Jones, Modest Mouse, Purity Ring, and Django Django were […]

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

Whittling down the best songs of the year is much tougher than the albums list. Anyone can release a great song, but a fluid, cohesive album is much harder to find. Over the next few posts, I’ll breakdown my top tracks of the year (followed by a two disc mixtape). As Laura correctly informed me, […]

Photo via Catrina Maxwell My first ever stop at Buckhead Theatre was interesting to say the least. Great sound in clean venue accompanied by a very talented artist who has clearly grown and matured over the years.

JayeL Audio: 4 Years in the Making & The Early Years

I was surveying old posts last week and realized I have been writing on this blog/site for 4 years. Kinda crazy. 4 years is like 8 in blog years. My first post was even douchey enough to refer to it as a “space”, but at least the music was good (Maximo Park and the Fratelli’s). […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 5-21-09

Bout time, right?  Vacation, illness and a car accident made April and most of May busy months.  This selection definitely leans more electro, which is fitting for the fun summer months ahead. A dance-worthy track from the Vampire Weekend/Ra Ra Riot collabo, Discovery that sounds better every time I hear about it (“Orange Shirt”), ’80’s […]
