2012 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks of 2012 #20-11

20. Lord Huron-Time To Run They might not know it, but Lord Huron’s specialty seems to be wistful folk rock, ready-made for your next road trip. Insert nearly any cut from their excellent latest album, Lonesome Dreams in this spot. 19. Gary Clark Jr.-When My Train Pulls In While much of Blak and Blu was […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 4-3-12

A combination of moving, late nights at work and a fried motherboard means we have a lot of music to talk about. Luckily, I was able to scoop up a new MacBook Pro and get relatively caught up on the plethora of new music unleashed in the last month or so. I’m somewhat glad I […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 6-25-09

Jack Penate: A Hot "One"

His debut album, Matinee, didn’t blow up in the U.S. like I thought it would, but Jack Penate certainly did well across the pond.  His lead single, “Tonight’s Today”, already started the jangly, guitar rock buzz train for his next opus, Everything Is New. The lastest offering from Mr. Penate, “Be The One” is more […]
