After taking a little time off to get the 24/7 internet radio back up and running, the (pretty much) bi-weekly Mix Tape Radio show is back with episode numero 52. Things kick off with another bit of loveliness from Sufjan's upcoming new release, and before things close out with some Benjamin Booker, you'll hear tracks from Houndmouth, Dear Sister, Jon Mckiel, J. Tillman, Dumbo Gets Mad, The Cave Singers, and a whole bunch more. So just press play and (hopefully) enjoy.
If you like what you hear, it'd be real cool of you if you 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 52 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio' show. And/Or, swing by iTunes and download the last 51 shows for FREE / subscribe to all future episodes (Episode 52 will be going up on iTunes later this 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 other quality tunes).
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 to those making it. 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.
