We just got back from a month-long holiday in Portland. While there, we picked up the first 8 installments of Mississippi Records' new mix-tape series. Eric Isaacson- shop owner, label head, and tape maker- gets pretty loosey-goosey with these things, and gives his curatorial muscles plenty of creative breathing room. Below are the first two tapes, with scans dutifully swiped from Root Blog. As soon as we re-set up our own hi-fi, we'll get subsequent volumes up as well, along with some of Mississippi's LP-only releases.
