If you've been hanging out on HI54LOFI the last couple weeks, you've probably noticed more than a few 'end of year' posts. Well, before I put a bow on 2013 and start getting ready for the next one, I figured I would squeeze in one more episode of 'Mix Tape Radio on Folk Radio UK'. And since I've been almost exclusively listening to my favourite music from the past year all month, and since I put together a 'best of' episode last year, it just made sense to make the last show of the year a mix tape of the music that kept my headphones the warmest.
So this final show of 2013 is a mix tape made exclusively of tracks from my '5 Favourite Albums' and '10 Favourite EPs' of the year twenty thirteen. This mix is not in any order, so if you're curious as to where each release landed in my list, go check out the lists linked in the last sentence (plus, I've written a bit on each album / EP).

Also, if you are looking for a little more music from 2013, then you can check out my 'Favourite Tracks of 2013', which have a few different listening options: 3 8tracks mixes (PART 1 | PART 2 | PART 3) or a big playlist on SPOTIFY | RDIO | DEEZER.
And of course, you can always swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to all 27 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio On FRUK' show. Or, swing by iTunes and download the last 26 shows (Episode 27 will go up on iTunes in the next week or so… so wouldn't be a bad idea to click the subscribe button while you're there). And of course, there is also the 24hr stream of tunes that is the Mix Tape Radio internet radio station (where you'll hear all of these songs + a whole bunch of others in the pretty big and always getting bigger rotation).
Hope you had a nice holidays… and all the best in the new year.
