Two Playlists for Valentine's Day


Whether you're interested in exploring the emotional duality of Valentine's Day or just looking for two hours of great music, we've got you covered.

Glazin' For You (MP3)

We just did your job of wooing your crush for you with a decades-spanning collection of lovestruck jams that range from surfy lo-fi to '80s new wave to bass-heavy dub. You're welcome! We won't, however, tell you when to put this playlist on, nor will we give you instructions on how to make it into a mixtape High Fidelity-style - though if you want to do that, that's totally cool.

The Cruelest Month (MP3)

T.S. Eliot dropped the ball when he said April was crueler than February, are we right? Whether you've been hurt before or just find the whole display of emotions thing a little too jarring to embrace, we've got you covered with everything from scuzzy revenge barnburners to chamber-pop knife-twisters to the saddest song Bradford Cox has ever written (maybe). Have some tissues on hand, and try not to grind your teeth too much.
