Don't Tell a Soul, Vol. 53: We live in the city, but our heart's elsewhere

Submitted for the approval of the Twin Ports Awesome Mix Tape Appreciation Society (wanna join?) ... the latest installment of "Don't Tell a Soul."

As always, to encourage the consumption of music that doesn't suck, I have provided -- wherever available -- links to free, artist-sanctioned MP3s of the songs.

To facilitate your enjoyment of this particular, especially awesome (and exceedingly private) mix tape, here's a hint: These 22 tracks are best enjoyed on a solitary road trip in the autumn time down to Chippewa Falls and/or Eau Claire. (Additional hint: Whilst in the proximity of the Chippewa Valley, why not enjoy a little exercise and tour the nation's seventh-oldest brewery?)

Sunset Wheat!
