10 Albums I Can’t Live Without

Whitney over at Pop Candy was calling for reader lists of “10 Albums You Can’t Live Without“. Albums that maybe aren’t critically the best of all time, but records that if you were stranded on a desert island (for some reason, I kept think of the island on “Lost”) you’d have to have. My list […]

Festivalist '09: Lollapalooza

Even though I won’t be attending, this is what I get excited about, Lollapalooza ’09.  Other people I know will enjoy it for me…and most likely make me jealous enough to try again in 2010.  As I’ve mentioned before, Depeche Mode, Tool and Jane’s Addiction aren’t headliners that I can get excited about.  However, the […]

She and her five piece […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 2-2-09

Depending on the caliber of music released daily, I’m hoping to get these out more often, but 2 in less than 1 month (not counting Narks and Mashed Up 3 soon) will have to do for now.  This edition showcases a couple of D-I-Y artists (Marc with a C, Kyle Andrews), a rising Detroit electro […]

Neko Case: Good Cause, Great Singer

I’ve mentioned the goodness that is Neko Case before.  Her chanteuse way caught my attention on her last album, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood and I’ve been a follower ever since. In support of her highly anticipated album, Middle Cyclone, Ms. Case is taking a unique approach to generating awareness.  As a known animal lover, […]
