Re: Favorite Songs of 2013

I got bored, so I created a Spotify playlist of all the songs in this thread (except those that aren't on Spotify). I made it collaborative, so y'all can add more to it if you please.
Embedded playlist may not work...

Re: Favorite Songs of 2013

^ wow, cool Dan - thanks.

question: how do we add more songs to the list - I'm quite a luddite in all this technology and such.

new song addition: Cut Copy: 'We Are Explorers'

Re: Favorite Songs of 2013

Five of my favorites:

Hookworms: Away/Towards: Neu motorik, Spacemen3 chaos, a little bit of Modern Lover's "Roadrunner"
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/tkEpKNPa9ig" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Savages: City's Full: post-punk par excellence. This band is incredible live as well. Virtuosos.
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/3oMejvxHQG8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Chvrches: Lies: Numan-esque and darker than the rest of the album, I love her voice on this one.
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/evRhRCAu2t0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Steve Mason: A Lot of Love: the album reminds me a bit of Pink Floyd's "The Wall". This is a terrific slice of melancholy pop with a great piano hook, the album version is much longer:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/APGAY1wpL4k" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Parquet Courts: Stoned and Starving: no-wave drone, atonal skronk and Velvet Underground / Pavement slackerdom. It's also a hilarious song.

If you're using the desktop app, you should be able to just click on a song and drag it to the playlist ("following" or "subscribing" to the playlist first will make it show up in your sidebar). I believe the web app works the same, but mobile apps might act a little differently.

I've added everything I could find that was posted up until today, but as mentioned, anyone can feel free to add more if they like. Personally, I'm using this as a way to catch up on some of the stuff I may have missed in 2013.

For those just now paying attention here's the link to the collaborative playlist:

Favorite Songs of 2013 - DT
exactly - I'm hoping some folk who posted what their best albums of 2013 were would pop over here and post what song from their lists stood out and what was their favorites.

I love this thread. Not everything is my taste, but sometimes I discover some great stuff.

Here's one more that's getting heavy rotation in my playlist:
