MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 11-14-16 ft Marshmello, Bad Suns, The xx, Run the Jewels & more

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 […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 10-17-16 ft The Weeknd, Bon Iver, Haley Bonar & more

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 […]

2013 Wrap-Up: Top Albums of 2013 – Honorable Mention

I’ve started each year’s top albums list when a preface about how people don’t listen to albums anymore. That statement is still true, but if the big names of 2013 didn’t make you immerse yourself in at least one artist’s vision for a full length album then you might have an issue. Just look at […]

Stream/download “Secrets” below and hopefully we’ll know more about Jr. Hi soon. via Neon […]

Lorde further exuded her dominance with the release of Pure Heroine, while the front women of Best Coast and Cults offered up particularly strong singles. Just to show how amazing […]

Let’s keep this short and sweet considering the whirlwind 7-10 days ahead (Lollapalooza, JT/Jay-Z at Ford Field and Cheeseburger in Caseville). By the time you read this, I’ll be strategically plotting my route through my second Lollapalooza experience. While not all these acts will be performing, I’m hopeful to catch new jams you are about […]

MIXTAPE: Narkfall

Back again with an over-sized collection of all that I’ve been enjoying in hip-hop this Fall. Big Sean seems to be on everyone’s tracks these days, but “Guap” serves as a catchy start to his sophomore album. Earl Sweatshirt shows why he is the most interesting emcee on Odd Future’s roster with “Chum”, while Fablolous […]
