Family Portrait - “Super Cool”

Oh to have been in that backyard…

Ebb/Flow - a flamgirlant mixtape

It’s a transition time of year.  60 degrees one day, 90 the next.  Passing over recipes that require the oven to be on and going straight for fresh fruits and veggies.  Trading in my red wine for vodka lemonade.  It’s the time of year I find myself going from 0 to 60 and back again over the course of a few days only to repeat it again and again.  Too much to do, brief respite to catch my breath, too much to do.  That’s how things roll before I find myself lockstep with summer. 

Some days ebb, some days flow.  This mixtape works much the same way.  Give it a download or head over to 8tracks and listen!

Family Portrait - “Wait”

You guys have been listening to Family Portrait's debut LP, haven’t you?  This track is my favorite.  Warm and lingering but… hesitant.  That’s the part that gets me.  Like fingertips to the inside of an elbow or along a collarbone. 

Family Portrait - “Mega Secrets”

This songs starts off with a “click-click-click-click” that reminds me of starting up the gas burner on my mom’s stove.  The video shows kids playing with fire.  Colliding worlds.
