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)**

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

  2. This is such a beautiful mix! Based on your wonderful taste, I think you’d really like The Civil Wars… Record just came out today. Thanks for sharing!

  3. 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.

  5. Wait, you have an amazing photographic eye, know your art history AND make awesome music mixes? I heart you so hard!!!

  6. 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.
    Loving it lots!
