Favourite Tracks of 2013

>> Sunday, 5 January 2014

So the wife-to-be and I purchased our first home in early December and moved in late December, meaning the past few weeks have been beyond chaotic what with packing, the actual moving process (during a fucking blizzard!), and the unpacking, which is still ongoing. Oh, and I wrote a 20 page paper somehow in there as well.

Anyway... my apologizes for the blog neglect. Tonight is the first time I've been able to give my complete and undivided attention to the tunes of 2013. Without further preamble, here are my favourite tracks of 2013 in playlist order. (Yes, there are two Vampire Weekend songs because, well, that whole album is terrific with many outstanding earworms.)

  1. Haim - The Wire
  2. Kanye West - Black Skinhead
  3. The Head and the Heart - Shake
  4. Au Revoir Simone - Crazy
  5. CHVRCHES - We Sink
  6. Unknown Mortal Orchestra - No Need For A Leader
  7. mum - Sweet Impressions
  8. No Joy - Hare Tarot Lies
