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. […]

Walk The Moon – Shut Up And Dance

Yes, I do like power indie pop (.fun, Steel Train, Young the Giant) from time to time. So what? Walk the Moon have seemingly toured nonstop since they released their self-titled album (mostly a reworking of independently released I Want! I Want!). The soaring pop hooks of tracks like “Tightrope”, “Anna Sun” and “Jenny” gained […]

Remix Friday: Kaytranada, Shook, Amtrac, RAC & more

Queenstown, New Zealand – August 2009 via TRAVELSTACHE I don’t know if it is because of the weather or that I’ve latched on to more great remix producers, but each week seems more stacked than the next.

2011 Wrap-Up: Top Albums of the Year – Honorable Mention

NEW MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 10-04-11

Similar to last month, the ladies of indie music continue to have blogs, ipods and Spotify on lockdown. Florence and the Machine continue their streak of anthems (“Shake It Out”), Feist eerily charms (“Graveyard”) and St. Vincent gets poetic about society (“Cruel”). Bubbling acts like Alabama Shakes, Lydia Loveless and Meiko also carry the lady […]
