Perhaps more than a tradition by now, Mike Jedlicka of Optic Echo Presents has been sharing with us his favorite vinyl-only selections of the year since 2011. Jedlicka and I were taking last night, him in Portland, me in New York, the opposite coasts of this barely united states of America, finding ourselves in some similar stages of our lives, with all those other "real-world" things, like jobs, family, health, and aging. We may be thousands of miles apart, slowly crawling along our own [pre?]determined trajectories, but we agree that the only thing that unites us, and most importantly, keeps us stable in these days of insanity, anxiety, and stress, is music. Music is here to ground us back to base.

Wonderful mix! I would love to know what the tune is from 47:40. Is it Murcof and Wagner? I would buy it if I could.
