Mix Tape Radio is back with Episode 20 and another 60 minutes of solid tunes, featuring 17 different artists, mixed together in a way that (hopefully) makes for a pleasant little soundtrack to a small part of your day. It borrows heavily from a recent Canada Day mix tape that I put together with Wake The Deaf, but it is not the exact same track listing (and Episode 20 doesn’t exclusively feature Canadian artists). The reason it borrows from that Canada Day mix s not because I was being lazy, but rather, there was some really ace songs on that mix that really complimented each other quite well. And speaking of Wake The Deaf, that lovely cover of ‘Holocene’ that you’ll hear in the first half of the episode comes off of another great covers compilation that they recently put together, which you should definitely get.
So there you have it. The first on demand episode of ‘Mix Tape Radio on FRUK’. All that’s left to do is pop on your headphones, press play, and dig in.
