Our unofficial Mixtape Week continues unabated!!! This time, mixologist & beloved Society member Lloyd Ffafnir brings his latest and greatest mixtape to our ears. The theme? Spring. Seems rather appropriate, though the weather can’t seem to figure out what IT wants to be (stoopid mother nature, but then again, today IS gorgeous), cold, hot, warm, rain, sun, wheeeee!
But by the will of the mixtape (by the power of Greyskull), we will force upon mother earth the sun & shine & flowers & animal matings! How you ask??? With songs about spring, grass (not THAT kind), April, flowers, and caked & gooped with enough Elephant 6 groups to get you voting Republican!
Get it? No? Here’s a visual aid…
Elephants…. oh well, I know it ain’t easy to follow along this tangent hoppin’ brain o’ mine. But seriously, don’t vote Republican, or Democrat, just vote YOU, if you follow….
I digress, okay, here’s the deal, it’s a fucked-up all over the place mixtape and honestly because of that, I love it! It’s quirky, weird, odd, pop & not, loaded with of Montreal and keeps hitting all my happy buttons. Whee! So come along and celebrate Lloyd’s spring with me! HOORAY! Can you tell I’m a bit ADD today? Getting excited for the weekend and a little vaca next week, woop!
Gotta run but keep an eye out tomorrow. We got a very rare and special treat for you to conclude our little unofficial Mixtape Week, but until then, let’s get our spring on! Get ready… Get set….
