Mixtape Mondays

Today the Vault launches a new occasional feature: Mixtape Mondays. Before iPods, before playlists, back in the days when dinosaurs (and Isaac Hayes) roamed the land, there was a thing called the mixtape, wherein the author would put together a sequence of songs intended to convey a specific mood or idea. We've resurrected the concept and Assistant Editor Melanie Love is first out of the gate with a summery mixtape themed on "Ocean Waves" and featuring tracks from artists including Weezer, Styx, the Shins, the Unicorns, Death Cab For Cutie, Pixies and Band Of Horses. Grab a cool drink and a towel and enjoy...
