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!

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!

Having one of those days.

Crush - a flamgirlant mixtape

I don’t often make thematic mixtapes but lately I’ve found myself falling for songs about falling.  May seems to be the perfect time of year to have a new crush.  There’s something about warming temps and budding trees that makes it easy to fall in love. Maybe it’s that foxy hipster you keep seeing at shows or cravings for a new roll you tried at your favorite sushi joint.  My latest crush is my new city - and a mess of bands.

So without further ado, I give you my latest mixtape: Crush

01. The Radio Dept. - Heaven’s On Fire
02. The Blacks - I’m In Love 
03. Makeout Videotape - Slush Puppy Love
04. White Fence - I’ll Follow You
05. Cults - Most Wanted
06. Dante Vs Zombies - Yes I’m Stalking You
07. Lonnie Donegan - Love Is Strange
08. Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk - Jeremy Irons Couple Skate
09. Mi Ami - Latin Lover
10. North Highlands - Sugar Lips
11. Quantic And His Combo Barbaro - I Just Fell In Love Again
12. Donora - I Think I Like You

I hope you find a new band crush as a result of listening to this mix. If you do, show that love and check out a concert or buy their latest 7”. After all you can’t expect to get more lovin’ without giving any in return.

If you dig the mix, gimme a shout.  If you’d like to hear more, check out my previous mixtapes here.
