Episode 29 dips very greedily into my 2013 listening pile… but I think once you get to the end of this mix tape you'll agree that it's not a bad thing. Besides, we're only 1 month into 2014, so I don't think anyone can really consider themselves “sooo over 2013” just yet. That being said, I did sneak some 2014 discoveries in here, including 3 tracks off of Ricky Eat Acid's recent headphone gem (the album is called '3 Love Songs' so it seems appropriate to use 3 tracks from it… plus the 3 tracks combine nicely into a 'one track slot' in the mix). But really, this intro paragraph is just me rambling for the sake of rambling… you really should just focus your energy on hitting the play button and see for yourself whether this mix supplies a good soundtrack for the next hour of your day.
Hope you enjoy it… and if you do, hit those Favorite & Share buttons and pass it on to any similar ears that you know.

And of course, you can always swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to all 29 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio On FRUK' show. Or, swing by iTunes and download the last 28 shows (Episode 29 will go up on iTunes in the next week or so… wouldn't be a bad idea to click the subscribe button while you're there, no?). And of course, there is also the 24hr stream of tunes that is the Mix Tape Radio internet radio station (where, at some point, you'll hear all of these songs + a whole bunch of others in the pretty big and always getting bigger rotation of quality tuneage).
