Still working on getting everything sorted now that I've moved back to Canada, but we've bought a used car (a Saturn Astra) and figured out what town we're going to move to (Kimberley, BC), so some progress has been made. To celebrate said small progress, I've put together episode number 60.
It kicks off with some excellent new Wilder Maker and closes out with a track from that Elliott Smith cover album from Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield that I totally forgot had happened. In between those two, you'll hear some new to me Isaac Brock solo stuff, newish Beirut and oldish Cory Branan, a lovely track off Wake The Deafs lovely compilation… and a whole bunch more. So press play & enjoy.
If you like what you hear, it'd be real cool of you if you hit those Heart & Repost buttons AND/OR 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 (if this one is not up now, it will be shortly).

And of course, you can always swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to all 60 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, 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.
