Best of 2011 - a flamgirlant mixtape

It’s that time of year where we make lists!  Nice lists, naughty lists (quite fond of those) and my favorite, “Best of” lists.  It’s fun to take a step back and really evaluate all of my loves over the past year and let me tell you, I really got around!  Some albums were mere crushes or flirtations, others I fell for hard and fast but then cooled and still others where the love started as a spark and grew to a great roaring fire.

After much soul searching and extreme self-imposed stress, I believe I came up with my Best of 2011.  10 favorite albums, 5 favorite EPs.  As is my tradition, I created a mixtape for you all to download and enjoy.  2 tracks off of my favorite albums and a single track off of my favorite EPs.  Maybe we share loves, maybe you’ll fall for someone new, give it a download and let’s find out!  Can always give it listen over on 8tracks too!

Chad VanGaalen - “Cut My Hair/Shave My Pussy” (Southern Souls Session)

Good morning, Tumblr.

Chad VanGaalen,
Diaper Island

Chad VanGaalen - “Heavy Stones”

And it feels like all these heavy stones
Have been living in my head so long
I can’t remember your name
I can’t remember anything
And all that’s been had is just a hand on a string

I’m having a day.  Just one of those days.  The new Chad VanGaalen release Diaper Island is helping me get through it.  I’m particularly loving this track.

Love As Laughter - “Dirty Lives”
