MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 10-23-14 ft The Lone Bellow, Karen Harding, Walk The Moon, Chet Faker & more

I’ve received four notices to put out a mixtape and they were all absolutely correct that I was overdue. Hopefully 35 tracks of new indie, dance, pop, folk and remixes will suffice for October. This month’s mix decidedly leans toward the folk and indie rock end of the musical spectrum, which tends to occur seasonally. […]

Summer is still around for a week (I live in semester timelines again), so why not go out with a boat load of new music? This mixtape edition took a little longer than planned, but I’m glad I waited in the end. Otherwise, I would have left behind what I like to call the “summer-trifecta” […]

I told myself that I would try not to make the next mixtape more than 25 tracks, but I couldn’t bring myself to cut any of these 29 songs. If that is an indication of what the rest of 2014 holds for music, we are all in for a helluva music year. This month’s mixtape […]

The first single off the band’s third album, Junk of the Heart, comes in the form of “The Saboteur” a 1960’s trippy piano/organ driven cut. Somewhat of a departure of the band’s typical brit […]

Cover Me Badd: Alphabeat, The Kooks

Since I’ve gotten more and more into the indie/underground rock realm, I’ve noticed the impact of covers. Mark Ronson made a solid album full of them with Version. While I was hesitant at first, talented musicians can certainly make someone else’s song, their own work. Its not exactly new any more, but Alphabeat continued Daft […]

2007 Wrap-Up: Looking Forward To In 2008

While 2007 was the best year in music for me personally, I have only begun to dig in the crates for new music. Though many indie fans have complained that there aren’t any big albums to look forward to in 2008 (Arcade Fire, The New Pornographers, Arctic Monkeys, The Shins, etc.) There should be more […]
