Ok, sure, a 20 song playlist for a 13 song list may not make any sense. But 20 is a nice round number and anyway, bigger is better, right? Sure it is. And unless you have Hot Grave on your hard drive (and you really should) it’s actually a 19 song playlist as that’s not available on Spotify. Either way – these 20 songs were my favourite musical moments of 2013, fragments of my year shoved awkwardly into a playlist for your delectation. Given the title of this blog you can expect there to be little focus or cehesion in this as a mixtape – that’s just par for the course. Being a natural born dilettante rarely lends itself to nice tidy narratives and makes neat segueing a tricky thing to pull off. But this is as good as it got last year. You should have a listen and find out how right I am.
