Just like the last one, Episode 44 is pretty full up on new releases. In fact, three of the songs are off albums that I featured tracks off of last time (I guess that's what happens when a pre-order sampler is replaced with the full album entree). Things kick off with a track from the much anticipated (by me) new Shakey Graves album and finish with a track from the much enjoyed (by me) new Growlers album, in between that you'll find something off Gorgeous Bully's recently released collection of unreleased gems, there's Bonnie 'Prince' Billy craving dumplings again, Foxes In Fiction, Field Report, Field Medic… and bunch of other great artists that don't start with 'F'.
It's another good one, but I always say that. So maybe press play and hear for yourself.
If you like what you hear, it'd be really great if you could hit those Heart & Share buttons, as well as pass this show around on Twitter and Facebook and Tumblr and Anywhere Else and to anyone else you may know that has the same fine taste in music as you. And don't forget to subscribe on iTunes, as you can download all episodes there for free (this one will be up later in the week). Cheers!

And of course, you can always swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to all 44 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio' show. And/Or, swing by iTunes and download the last 43 shows for FREE / subscribe to all future episodes (Episode 44 will be going up on iTunes in about a week… so it wouldn't be a bad idea to click the subscribe button while you're there, no?).
And don't forget… there is also the 24hr stream of tunes that is the Mix Tape Radio internet radio station (where, at some point, you'll hear most of these songs + a whole bunch of others in the pretty big and always getting bigger rotation of quality tuneage).
Finally, please remember to remember the following: music makes all our lives a bit more bearable, but the continued making of that music requires all of us listeners to give a little love back. Whether that be by buying what we like, sharing a metaphorical pint, or even just the simple act of spreading the word / letting the artist know how much you dig it, basically, anything beyond silent appreciation goes a really long way.
