Guest Playlist: Kaki King’s Australia Mix

Last month Kaki King announced a national tour of Australia, which was v. exciting news to many Australians but especially our music editor, Crystal. To celebrate, we asked Kaki to make a playlist based on the theme ‘Australia’ and she said yes. What a champ.

  1. I take a nap, and by the time I wake up we have a Kaki King playlist? This is an excellent day.

  2. ah this is so cool! and the playlist is really good too! contact high is my go-to ‘i am clearly cooler than everyone else here but i love everyone else here so i’m really nice and fun and not an asshole’ song. and washington! an horse! temper trap! ah!

  3. everyone already said how incredible and insane and cool and amazing this is but it really is all those things so i just want to reiterate that

  4. This is amazing! No, Kaki is amazing! I was just listening “Camp Out” when I was driving home, so this playlist is so perfect.

  5. Kaki King and autostraddle are easily two of my favourite things, so logging on to find this has made my day!
