EPISODE 63 kicks off with lovingly lofi track off Katie Von Schleicher latest album (which she describes as 'lofi as fuck') and before things close out with an absolute surprise from LUKA, you'll hear: Joshua James singing Modest Mouse, Pet Cemetary sampling I Heart Huckabees, Ed Harcourt, Michael Rault, my favourite chorus of the year from Ariel Sharratt & Mathias Kom, and even more good for the ears things.
10 songs in total = a 36 minute soundtrack for the next 36 minutes of your day. So, pop on the headphones and press play…

And of course, you can always swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to all 63 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.
