there’s something about us

14 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 *

  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)

Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin’

i wasn’t really thinking of a theme at all when putting the mid-november mix together, just smashing together a bunch of songs i’ve been playing a lot lately. then i realised there may be a hidden theme as many of them are actually love songs. new love, old love, lost love… maybe even a bit of hate love. so there you have it.

lovin, touchin, squeezin. listen on Spotify here. tracklist:

  1. best coast – the end
  2. the black keys – the only one
  3. sea wolf – the violet hour
  4. girls – heartbreaker
  5. tennis – take me somewhere
  6. seapony – dreaming
  7. lykke li – get some
  8. beach house – 10 mile stereo
  9. florence and the machine – cosmic love
  10. band of horses – no ones gonna love you
  11. devotchka – i cried like a silly boy
  12. junior boys – hazel
  13. journey – lovin’, touchin’, squeezin’

i would also like the clarify that the cover art is a tribute to movember. though it really should be beardvember, in my opinion. i suppose i wouldn’t mind lovin, touchin, and squeezin that fine ginger bearded fellow though.
