By the end of Mixi's visit (which even included her whipping out the Magic Markers and creating a little piece of suitable-for-framing wall art), I'd developed a serious girl-crush. And I was of course thanking gawd (or Fuse, or Geffen's Ron Fair, whoever) that bratty blowhard Angelica Rose didn't win Redemption Song instead.
Here's a little snippet of Mixi performing a promising work-in-progress song from her upcoming debut album for Geffen. I can't wait to hear the finished product, although I am a little bummed that all the F-words will apparently be excised from the final version:
And here Mixi is taking on Beyonce's "Single Ladies" (a possible "Wolfmother-meets-Beyonce-meets-Mixi" cover version might end up on her album, believe it or not). Though she sadly didn't perform the famous accompanying Beyonce dance, I do think she could've totally pulled off that iconic one-sleeved leotard/metal robo-glove look:
So thanks to Mixi for stopping by and brightening my workday. I'm sure this isn't the last I'll be seeing of her. After all, the girl is so talented, she can yodel, too!:
