For Mixtapes, we ask today's leading musicians, authors, filmmakers and artists to assemble an hour of new-music that they find particularly compelling or that exemplifies the shifting boundaries of today's musical climate. Today's mixtape comes courtesy of Los Angeles-based experimental singer/songwriter Julia Holter, whose recent album Ekstasis is itself as much "new music" as it is "indie rock."

"Music to Hear Now. About this mix: "Only the pure in heart can make a good soup." - Ludwig van Beethoven" - Julia Holter

gary gach from left coast

post M@verick programming has shaken out very fine

excellent that Phil Kline & Mary Rowell are now regulars

2 hours' NadiaSirota = MDR (minimum daily requirement)
Hammered has become a mainstay too

¿ might either/both be rebroadcast in evenings ?
useful not only if a program was missed during day
but also level of quality of both programs are such that
re-listening would be as natural as wanting to see again
the mona lisa, or mondrian's broadway boogie

thank you kew too
