As the clock approached 2014, I was busy bringing in the New Year by listening to some of the best albums put out in 2013. Inspired from Pitchfork’s, Rolling Stone’s, and SPIN’s picks for best albums of the year, I compiled a playlist, a mix tape of sorts, of some of my favorite tracks.
These songs come from great albums and are worth listening to as a whole, so I recommend, after you finish listening to my playlist, that you take some time to listen to each of them.
I hope this playlist fills you with joy and energy to pursue your musical endeavors. Here is to a new year and a life refreshed by good music.
And stay warm out there!!
