EPISODE 53 kicks off with some loveliness from YouYourself&I, and before it closes out with an available-only-if-you-pre-order Wearlyland track, you'll hear new stuff from Courtney Barnett, Modest Mouse, and Hayden; old stuff from Flaming Lips and Cuff the Duke; Justin Townes Earle singing about single mothers and absent fathers and his dad singing about not being anybody's daddy now… and a whole bunch more.
So go on and press that play button if you haven't already. And then maybe hit that 'heart' button if you like what you hear.
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 53 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio' show. And/Or, swing by iTunes and download all the shows for FREE / subscribe for all future episodes.
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.
