Valentine’s Playlist Mix, Vol. I: Beach House, Elliott Smith, Magnetic Fields, The Shins, The Kinks, Beck, Neil Finn and More
Two times fourteen. That’s how we decided to do this year’s Valentines playlist series – two playlists of 14 songs each. It takes two to love and Feb. 14 is the day. Sure, it’s corny, but hell, we think we’ve put together a pair of mixes featuring songs you love, or might love for the first time, spanning the history of rock from the mid-1960s to some of the best indie rock of today.
