Guest Mixtape: Aquarium Drunkard’s Midnight Radio
Filed under: Mixtapes,Original Mixtape Series | Posted by:


Justin Gage, the man behind Aquarium Drunkard and Autumn Tone Records, has made a mixtape for us! I am very pleased to present Midnight Radio: “Twelve tracks inspired by driving through the New Mexico desert after midnight on a surreal, starless night. Clocking in at just over thirty minutes the following tracks, mostly vinyl rips, should complement any weird, late-night dance party, séance, etc… Very hoodoo.” Needless to say (this is Justin we are talking about after all), it’s an incredible mix that features tunes by John D. Loundermilk, Screaming Lord Sutch, Elder Charles D. Beck and many more. In addition to Aquarium Drunkard and Autumn Tone, Gage also hosts a weekly, two hour radio show on Fridays on SIRIUS/XM satellite radio’s XMU (channel 26), and XM radio (channel 43). Noon-2pm EST. I highly recommend tuning in to his show and making Aquarium Drunkard a daily read. Check out the mixtape and details on his SXSW parties after the jump.

[…] Jody at When You Awake asked me to contribute to her ongoing, themed, mixtape series. I came up ‘midnight radio‘  and put together a 34 minute medley of old, scratchy, vinyl rip weirdness inspired by surreal, late-night, drives through the New Mexico desert under a starless sky. This could also very well be the soundtrack to an, as of yet, unfilmed David Lynch project. Go ahead and grab the mixtape over here… […]
