Peaking Lights - “Hey Sparrow”

Love the colors in this video.

Clinic - “Miss You” (Peaking Lights Remix)

I’m having a bitch of day.  And that requires having a sock monkey dancing joyously on my dash.

TEEN - “Sleep Is Noise” (Peaking Lights Remix)

Whoa.  One of my newer favorite bands remixing one of my newest favorite bands.  Absolutely adore both TEEN and Peaking Lights!!

Peaking Lights - “Dream Beat”

Nothing like a new Peaking Lights video for one of my favorite songs off the new album Lucifer to kick off my Wednesday.

I’ve been a bit quiet lately, just a lot going on. Such is life. Day off today for a little recoup. Peaking Lights and a little culinary therapy in the form of hummus, salsa and blueberry chutney should help destress.

Got a mixtape for you all I’ll post soon! Happy Friday!

Peaking Lights - “Beautiful Son”

You know what tomorrow is, right?  Tomorrow Lucifer, the new album from Peaking Lights, drops on Mexican Summer records.  Psychedelic dream pop with dark smudges of krautrock straight out of Madison, WI.

Been streaming the whole thing over at the Guardian.  Can’t wait to get my hands on this one.

To start things off, we’ll play a song that exemplifies the musical style of Peaking Lights which features synth rock arranging, electronica influences, reggae influences, repetitive melodic phrasing and extensive vamping.

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!
