yo yo yo rafter here

this is a mix i made to play at a dive bar in atlanta georgia

i made it in the car while we drove

but dont let that discourage.

i think there’s some

blondie (giorgio moroder mix)

black moth super rainbow


joe gibbs i think?

hercules + love affair

hunters & collectors

new fast automatic daffodils

+ something else..

overall it’s a 10 out of 10 mix, pretty chill and enjoyable and eclectic.  that’s why i’ve titled it this genius name -> “eclectic mix”


oh yes

so often hitting the airport to bring my sweaty magic to you!  last week, texas and oregon.  this week, new york and washington dc.   just back at the nyc studio after our 1st show, and it was fun!  but enough about that – i’m gonna let my taste buds do the talking now :  if you want good ramen noodles in nyc, i have to send you to ippudo!  yeah, the music was great, the company fantastic, and etc!  but those ramen noodles… mmmm…. ahhhh……  they will fuel me to play tomorrow with My Gold Mask and Hussle Club at the Public Assembly Loft, and then friday in DC with the Hood Internet, and then at Glasslands with pals Frances and Necking on Saturday!  Thanks for the go-power, tasty noodles!

always surprises.  never a dull moment if you look hard enough.  aphorisms from your favorite red-head-non-super-non-hero.  i’m getting excited about various things, i’ll make a list.  ♥

  1. my album came out last tuesday, it’s getting mad love!  see this and this and this and this and finally this.  ha!
  2. we’re having a party on saturday to celebrate.  we’re going all out.  cake, masks, photos, rad bands, dance contests, special guests, you name it!
  3. i have my next  3 4 album projects mapped out and they’ll keep me a busy rafter and will cover the spectrum from the nearly unlistenable to the completely unavoidable to the completely over-explored to the completely complete?  ahh hell i dunno nevermind.    expect : peaceful sounds for relaxation, rugged blown out sounds for hallucinogenic fucks in brazillian gutters, illegal sound collage pop art, and a full on stab at mild megastardom.
  4. lizeth (SNCL) has a great cover of Selena’s Bidi Bidi Bom Bom up to celebrate Selena Day!  it’s hearable here-able.
  5. i will have cds of my new album AND of the remix album on saturday!  i’m so stoked on the remix/alternate version album…. it was a real palate cleanser.  you can only get it at my shows right now so YAH..
  6. going to nyc and wdc next week and if last week’s jaunt to the northwest was any indicator, we’re in for some dance party sweat ritual action.
  7. i’m playing a completely different show on sunday (the day after the cd release show) at the soda bar, for a really good cause (haiti benefit)!  this one will be me solo, doing a 20 minute set that i worked out with my heavily overloaded 4 track.
