Mixing Tracks
December 6, 2012 8:01 PM   Subscribe

I've recently discovered mixes of songs that are about 45-60 minutes long such as FACT mix 347 by How to Dress Well (HTDW) or another mix by HTDW called Live Yourself. Where can I find more music like this? Also, what are some music resources (besides Hype Machine, SoundCloud, and LastFM) that are great for discovering new artists or new songs by some of your favorite artists?

Oh, and I thought I should list artists that I enjoy listening to:
Active Child, Adele, Alicia Keys, Angus & Julia Stone, Antony & The Johnsons, Bob Marley, Bon Iver, Death Cab for Cutie, Delilah, Ellie Goulding, Florence & The Machine, Frank Ocean, Frightened Rabbit, How to Dress Well, Inc., James Blake, Jessie Ware, Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, Lianne La Havas, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Marvin Gaye, Mumford & Sons, The National, Nina Simone, Nitin Sawhney, The Roots, SBTRKT, Sufjan Stevens, The Tallest Man on Earth, Tegan and Sara, The Veils, The Weeknd, and The XX.

Sorry for listing so many different artists, but I thought that might be helpful in figuring out which types of mixes or links I might be interested to. If you're into similar music, where can I find more music like this? I used to use Hype Machine and still occasionally use Hype Machine. Additionally, I like to use Indie RNB's tumblr page. I am also familiar with SoundCloud and LastFM.

The FACT mixes are great, you might also enjoy Resident Advisor podcasts.

Seconding PaulaSchultz on the RA podcasts. The XLR8R podcasts are great also!

Songza.com has consistently been great for discovering new (similar) music.
