Editor's note: believe it or not I played the flute in elementary school for a good few weeks before an accident de-railed my musical career. I was at the school after hours with a brother and a friend who decided that we should play on the ice which had formed over the park area of the playground. The friend who was a bit chubby decided it would be fun to slide between each other's legs to make the sliding across open air ice more exciting. Well, I was very short at the time and he was too big to fit between my Y shaped bullseye and when he hit me I went head first into the ice. I felt around under my woolen cap and felt something wet. "Sweat" I thought but held it up to the light of the park light and it was as red as Mars in full view of the alien princess. Needless to say I needed stitches and ended up having bleeding in my eyeball which persisted for a week or two and I was kept out of school and missed my vital flute training. When I got back my suckiness at the flute turned into behind the rest of the class suckiness and staying after to catch up didn't appeal to me. So here I am commenting on a flute record. Some viral flute, marching band drums, a mestizo feel in parts and rain forest in others makes this a pretty listenable record. This would be good theme music for a wildlife or Indian documentary.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
