Songs that made 2013

6 Jan

Late last year I won two months subscription to MOG, the online music service. Day one I was hooked. I knew when my free period was over I would be signing on for more of their premium package. It’s perfect for my erratic desire to listen to music. As I travel to work in the mornings I can easily flick from vintage Bob Marley and the Wailers to the current crop including The XX and Chet Faker. So what else has been delighting me? I still do listen to the morning show with Zan Rowe on Triple J for new music as she is someone who seems to be on the same wavelength as me. And as I mentioned yesterday I love to listen to the podcasts from the NPR All Songs Considered website. They have true music lovers finding the best of the years tunes. They have introduced me to alot of my new favourite music.

As I mentioned earlier, Chet Faker is one of the ones I had heard much about but it took me a while to get around to listening to. This song I’m Into You is from his EP:

Another album I haven’t been able to stop listening to is Big Scary’s Not Art album. I feel bad for breaking it down to just one song because it’s all so good, but Phil Collins was the first of it I fell in love with so here it is:

There was a lot of chatter about Arcade Fire’s new album this year way before it was released. When I first heard the single Reflektor I was in awe and couldn’t wait for the album. Due to some unsavoury reviews my first listen was a bit sullied, but since then I have given it the attention it deserves.

There was so much more but I don’t want to drown you in music. What did you keep on pressing play on in 2013?
