This mix has been haunting me all month. It has been a lot of work scrapping together KYFR mix worthy songs. I had to throw the net wide, but hopefully you'll agree that I caught a narwhal or two.

Bibio - A tout a l'heure
Hands down one of the best songs I have heard this year!!!!!!!! Its weird, basey, dancey and unbelievingly catchy.
Vampire Weekend - Step
This is quickly becoming my fav VW song. PERFECT SUMMER POP!
Peace - Float Forever
The way this song builds is ba-ba-ba-bonkers good!
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Under The Earth
This song made me feel like I was spying on Medusa while she was doing some cave cleaning.
I struggled coming up with an idea this month but in the end forced myself to do something that felt really unatural. I call it Nü90's. I feel like it is a big trend right now and I wanted to give it a try. I wanted to play with the idea of some kind of vortex making a face (stature) radical.I like the mix of patterns and gray vs. color. I did everything in Photoshop, even the type :( Plus, I used tons of bad filters and tools I would never use, ie. Twirl Effect. It took me back to the first time I used Photoshop and just wanted to Filter everything. It feels off to me but hopefully in a cool way. Maybe in the same way that Bill Cosby made wearing obnoxious sweaters cool.
ENjO! the mix gang!

Really sorry the mix is late this month but November was super busy and I had a personal matter that came up the last week of November that required me to be out of town.
This mix art this month was inspired Movember/Novembeard. I found this photo a while ago an I think it might be the crazy character from the True Grit remake (who stole the movie for me). He has the most epic beard ever! I added some color and hand drawn texture on the wolf pelt to modernize it a bit and then some cave painting typography helps finish it off.
The songs on the mix are all over the map this month. From Celestial Wave to Slo-Brains Trip Roc. ENjO!
