Former Xpress staffer Jaye Bartell releases new video

This week, Brooklyn Vegan shared the new video for “Dance with Me,” by Jaye Bartell. It’s brooding and equal parts uneasy and lovely. A former Xpress editor and Asheville-based musician and songwriter, Bartell now lives in Brooklyn. It was recently announced that he signed to Sinderlyn. That lable will release a new album by Bartell in 2016.

Brooklyn Vegan writes, “Jaye Bartell has been making music since the mid-’00s and you may have seen him open shows for Jessica Pratt or Angel Olsen recently. His sonorous voice fits well with his dark, dusty, folky songs, as can be heard on 2013’s Loyalty. That album, originally, released on Headway Recordings, is getting reissued in September by Sinderlyn (part of Captured Tracks’ Omnian Music).”
