Episode 42 starts off with Micah P Hinson's excellent cover of a Tim Buckley song (I'd wager it is better than the original... but I've somehow actually never got around to listening to the original yet) and ends with Horrible Houses walking things off. In between those 2 gems, you'll hear 17 other gems, including: a beauty off J Mascis latest excellent solo effort, a Sun Kil Moon song that really pulls on the feels, my favourite tune off the latest Twin Peaks album, an oldish Coma Cinema and Foxes In Fiction collab, Owl John (aka the guy from Frightened Rabbits), k-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p-i, a corker from Howlin' Wolf, and a whole bunch more.... so I'll just stop listing things now.
I'd tell you that it's another good one, but of course I would say that. I made it. So just 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 to anyone 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 42 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio' show. And/Or, swing by iTunes and download the last 41 shows for FREE / subscribe to all future episodes (Episode 42 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). Oh yeah… you'll also find a lot of these tunes (and whole bunch of other gems) on the 'Bandcamp Radio' I recently (re)setup.
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, anything beyond silent appreciation goes a long way.
