14 there's something about us

there’s something about us

february music mix is here! as much as i kind of despise valentines day/month i have to admit i was thinking about it when putting this mix together. it’s not 100% love songs, in fact there are a number of songs on here that are distinctly un-love songs. you know, valentines is a bunch of hoo haa anyway. BUT if you need something for your valentine that’s anti-hallmark just burn this playlist to CD… you can take complete credit, i won’t mind *

there’s something about us. tracklist:

  1. yeasayer – i remember
  2. fleet foxes – helplessness blues
  3. alexander – truth
  4. the middle east – blood
  5. bloc party – i still remember (lull’s music box & tears mix)
  6. arctic monkeys – the lovers (acoustic)
  7. death cab for cutie – love song (the cure)
  8. bon iver – skinny love (das kapital rerub)
  9. passion pit – to kingdom come
  10. rtp – all that’s left (rac mix)
  11. clap your hands say yeah – is this love?
  12. flight of the conchords – the most beautiful girl (in the room)
  13. radiohead – thinking about you
  14. bruce springsteen – i’m on fire (cousin cole’s bad desire mix)**
  15. daft punk – something about us

* a mix-tape is more romantic than anything in the entire world.

** i listened to this 12,000 times yesterday.

all music is for sampling purposes only – please go out and buy the artists’ records & support them at their shows!

    I really like the mix… and the artwork! Is the background a part of a Gunnel Wåhlstrand painting? I love her work!

    I had guessed that you had designed the artwork from different pictures etc. If you’re interested: On http://www.foammagazine.nl/portfolio?foto=103 down at the bottom of the page is the painting you cover has reminded me of. She’s painting pictures of her family members in large sizes using ink.

    Wow – I never download mixtapes { even though they are one of my most favourite things in the world }, but this time I made an exception not least because you included The Middle East and FotC.
