Tyler Clark presents: Local Mythologies DJ Profile

It's a story as old as time: boy meets girl, girl gives boy platonic mixtape, boy obsesses more over the music than he does the (emphatically uninterested) girl. Ever since that fateful day around the turn of the millennium, Tyler Clark has been processing his feelings (romantic and otherwise) through the music of the day. Now, as the host of Local Mythologies, he raids his sonic medicine cabinet every Thursday night from 8-10 p.m. to deliver soothing doses of everything from classic power pop to obscure lounge tracks. When he's not in the studio, you can find him reviewing music for Consequence of Sound and telling the story of that same high school crush on Netflix's The Mortified Guide

Check out Tyler's two most recent shows below:
