The NewEra team loves mix tapes! I think the best holiday playlists are those that allow us to celebrate the holiday at hand and enjoy the mix all year ’round. This mix is pretty eclectic (but that’s how we like it): happy, twinkly indie love songs mixed with a few covers, some pop artists, and some heavy stuff, too.

Here’s our 2012 Valentine Mix Tape: I’ll take my indie songs with a side of pop and covers











Side 1
1. Before I Knew by Basia Bulat (great indie love songs on this album!)
2. 5 Years Time by Noah & The Whale
3. Wishes and Stars by Harper Simon
4. Little Lovin’ by Lissie
5. Animal (Mark Ronson Remix) by Miike Snow
6. Maps by Rogue Wave (Yeah Yeah Yeahs cover)
7. Take On Me by A.C. Newman (A-Ha cover)
8. Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh by Say Hi
9. Skinny Love by Birdy (Bon Iver cover) (a truly glorious album of cover songs!)
10. Gotta Have You by The Weepies

Side 2
11. Settle Down by Kimbra
12. Smile by Bear Lake
13. Banana Pancakes by Jack John
14. Your Song by Ellie Goulding (Elton John cover)
15. Heart of Glass by Puppini Sisters (Blondie cover)
16. Glad You Came by The Wanted
17. The Shape of Us by Ian Britt
18. Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men
19. Radio by Lana del Rey *explicit
20. Every Second Counts by Vocal Few (This song certainly isn’t a traditional love song, but its so intense and inspiring and raw and fueled by pure emotion that we couldn’t not include it. It offers a phenomenal listening experience and message, including to live every day to the fullest and to tell those you love that you DO love them.)

Hope you enjoy our 2012 Valentine’s Day mix tape!
