Best of 2013 – The Music

Best of 2013 – The Music

IT’S the last day of 2013 and that can only mean one thing – time to brutally trawl through my list of favourite songs from the past 12 months and join with my mate Michelle (@michd10) in compiling a list of 25 tracks which together, nicely represent our year in music.

We’ve got indie pop, indie rock, electronic and acoustic interests covered, so check out the playlist links listed below to take a listen for yourselves. If there’s any tracks that took your fancy in 2013, don’t be shy – let me know by throwing them down in the comments section.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
