Our mixtape series returns with our third collaboration with Nick Barbery of the Portland, OR based Ghost Capital. With an ear bent toward the obscure and out-of-print, digging globally, Ghost Capital mines the secret shafts of psych, folk, blues and beyond. Mix download, notes, and tracklisting after the jump.

Ghost Capital is my guest this Friday during the second hour of the AD show on SIRIUS/XMU.
