Okay, so this mixtape is an experiment. You can tell me if it works.
I've been listening to a lot of Kaki King recently and love how her songs sound both old-school fingerpicking and somehow fresh and current at the same time. So for this mixtape, I mashed up current freak folk and experimental indie songs with classic-sounding folksy tunes. Together, they make an interesting blend of new and old. The name of the mix is a lyric from THEESatisfaction's song “QueenS,” which is on the mix.
