Apparently I am late to the game but I have a new site I can’t stop looking at 8tracks.com. Thank you amazing Australian girl I met at the Chet Faker show two weeks ago for telling me about this gem. 8tracks is a music website that allows you to listen to mixes made by real people & make your own mixes and share them with the world. So here is my first mix, Girly Grooves. Just a collection of my favorite tracks by women I’ve found over the last 6 months, girl power! And I’ve been slow on the uploads and reviews, much to come on Fun Fun Fun Fest. Enjoy this for now.

Flume & I should probably move to Australia right now
I may just be stuck on FutureClassic but all my favorite new tunes seem to be coming out of Australia or I’ve been sleeping under an American rock. Either way Flume drops his self-titled debut Nov. 8th and I couldn’t be more excited. He is collaborating with a few artists dear to my heart, Twin Shadow (George Lewis Jr. swoon) & Ghostface Killah. This track with Freddie Gibbs in on point. I had the pleasure of seeing Gibbs a few years back as a supporting act and the man brings fire.
And if my love and obsession for Chet Faker could get any bigger my heart might explode. He has been added as a replacement for Delorean’s cancelled set at FUN FUN FUN Fest this November and I couldn’t be more exited to see him again. Also it appears Flume also has a bromance with the beardy man himself.
Red Baraat blew Houston away last Monday but I’ve been too busy to post pics and videos. Until next time, I’m off to Mulberry Mountain for Harvest Music Festival, bluegrass and fiddlin here I come!
Chet Faker @ Fitzgeralds Houston, TX 9/18/13
Just wow, everything about this show was on point. Chet is touring with a live band that is not afraid of epic solos. The show was brimming with soul and emotion and Houston returned the love full force. Chet’s first time to our big wonderful state and he agreed everything is bigger in Texas, including the love. He played his new EP “Thinking in Textures” along with his youtube sensation “No Diggity” and came back for an encore (because we demanded it) and played ” Cigarettes & Chocolate.” Soulful, resonating, and just what people are looking for.
