Best Songs Of 2013

Best Songs Of 2013

I look forward to making this post every year.  Who doesn’t like making mix-tapes really?

The tough part is getting it down to a reasonable number, as 2013 was filled with many amazing tunes from new artists and old.  I managed to get it to 39 songs (36 on Rdio) and I’ve been through a few times to confirm that all those songs belong there for a reason.   We all have differing ideas on what were the best of 2013, this list is just what turned my head and peaked my interest in 2013.

Stream the Soundcloud playlist below, or head over to Rdio to hear songs from artists such as Gems, ON AN ON, Phoenix, London Grammar, Grouplove, Dan Croll and many more.

Enjoy (and please do share).

Crossing Lines

Crossing Lines

Apparently there’s an area of London in which talent, initiative and creativity are put together in a collective effort, and NX Records is a result of that beautiful combination. The mixtape “Crossing Lines” will be out on Monday but is now being streamed on Noisey, so you get a great opportunity to listen to it fresh out of the oven! I promise, quality is guaranteed.
