LINES : a flamgirlant mixtape

Ever notice how something as simple and innocuous as a line influences our behavior?  Lines are drawn, toed, and crossed.  You get in line, hold the line, and put yourself out on the line.  You either stay within the lines or color outside of them.  Sometimes you got someone on the line; sometimes you take yourself off the line.

Here’s a dandy little mix all about making lines or reacting to them (and one tasty instrumental jam for good measure).  Plus it’s spring and time for a new mix, no?

Click here to give it a listen over on 8tracks.  To download a zip file of the tunes, click here or on the image above.

Crush - a flamgirlant mixtape

I don’t really do Valentine’s Day.  I don’t want chocolate or flowers or a Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman necklace.  I find the whole thing a little absurd, always have.  Then again, being contrary is just my nature.

But I do love music.  And mixtapes.  And I’m reminded today of a mixtape I made back in 2010 titled Crush.  Haven’t listened to it in quite a while and I gotta say, still stands strong.  And is my most downloaded mixtape of all time.

Anywho, give it a listen here in the fancy 8tracks widget.  Or head over to my original blog post and download the thing for yourself.

Great stuff from The Radio Dept, Makeout Videotape, Dirt Dress, The Strange Boys, White Fence and many others you may have forgotten about.

What are you running from? : a flamgirlant mixtape

Recently I posted a track here on my blog saying how it was the perfect October song - creepy and full of lurking darkness.  A follower suggest I make a new themed mixtape and I agreed it was a good idea!

What are you running from? is my latest mixtape full of creepily wonderful tunes just in time for Halloween.  Songs about ghosts and boneyards, devils and death, shadows and terror fill this mix, but you won’t find even a hint of “Monster Mash”Now sure, I may have taken a little liberty with this “theme”, but I’m a big fan of coloring outside the lines.  Still rocks as hard as it should.

As always people, show these artists some love.  Buy a record, go see a show, get a Tshirt.  How are they gonna feel the love if you don’t show it?

Hope you hear something new you dig!  Download or head over to 8tracks to give it a listen.  Enjoy!!

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!


01  Arches - This Isn’t A Good Night For Walking
02  Lake - Within/Without
03  TRANCE FARMERS - BETTY BOP - babe, terror mix
04  Cousins - Write Me A Song
05  Sic Alps - Cement Surfboard
06  Sutja Gutierrez - Vacation Theme (Bossa Nova Hotel Holidays)
07  tUnE-yArDs - Powa
08  Manganese Madness - Dame
09  Little Scream - Cannons
10  Karl Blau - Celebrate By Singing
11  Peaking Lights - All The Sun That Shines
12  PEACE - The Dark

14  Family Portrait - Wait
15  Shimmering Stars - I’m Gonna Try
16  Sun In Sound - Such A Let Down
17  Vetiver - Strictly Rule

There are some great tunes here, folks.  You’re bound to fall for one or two.  When you do fall, please do the right thing - buy a record, see a show.  Send the band some love so they can keep doing what they do.

As always, visit my mixtape hub to listen to more mixed goodness!
