My year in music – 2013

Posted by Mark


Earlier today I was planning on putting together a list of my favorite tracks from this year and then Spotify came along and created a year in review website where I was able to get a summary of my Spotify listening habits for 2013. That’s what you see up on top but I also took the liberty to list the top 10 songs from my Spotify account below along with links to the songs so you could check them out if you’re interested.

Get Lucky – Daft Punk
Amor Fati – Washed Out
Red Light District – Midi Matilda
California – Delta Spirit
Shake, Shake, Shake – Bronze Radio Return
Islands – The XX
Take a Walk – Passion Pit
Sweater Weather – The Neighbourhood
Big TV – White Lies
Show Me – Team Me

More conveniently, you check out the full playlist on Soundcloud with all the songs above except for ‘Islands’ which wasn’t available [Here]

Now even though the list above is what I listened to the most this year I wouldn’t necessarily count them as my personal favorites of the year. That’s why I’ve also gone the extra mile to list my hand picked favorites of 2013 below. This list is not in any particular order although the first song ‘Line of Fire’ which I’ve also embedded is definitely my favorite song of the year. These tracks also didn’t necessarily come out this year:

Lovely Bloodflow – Baths
Scala – Agoria
Big Jet Plane (Animal Trainer Remix) – Jan Blomqvist
Bitter Moon – Zulu Winter
Open Eye Signal – Jon Hopkins
Another Love (Zwette Edit) – Tom Odell
See Right Through – Tensnake featuring Fiora
All The Days – HAERTS
Second Best – Echoes
When the Music’s Loud – Colette
Cross – Air Tycoon
Touch the Universe – Memphidos

Again, more conveniently you can check out the full playlist on Soundcloud with all the songs above except for ‘Cross’ which wasn’t available [Here]

If you want, share your top songs of the year with everyone in the comments below, preferably with links to make it easier to listen to.

    Also I find the lack of Disclosure…disturbing. Check them out. I thought they had a better album than Daft Punk this year.

    They’re a new electronic duo, pretty young actually (17 and 18 I think). But they released the best dance record of the year, IMO. Even though I actually prefer their EPs to their one LP.
