The 22 Playlist: #1 (Sunburned), August 12, 2012.

We are so pleased to present the first incarnation of The 22 Playlist. Our first playlist speaks to love and third degree burns respectively. Ranging from the brain melting effects of Je suis le Petit Chevalier’s (Felicia Atkinson), “A Guide to the Sun” to a lethargic lullaby from Bee and Flowers’s most recent “Suspension,” to a parched call for joy from Franz Nicolay’s most recent album “Do the Struggle,” this playlist travels the spectrum of blind love.
