Music of 2013

As I’ve done for as long as I can remember, order I’ve used services that subtly track what I’m listening to. Personally while I use spotify as my main listening service, stuff I still use last.fm as the service that tracks what I listen to.

I have to thank Laura, page  Scott, and Tony for sharing their musical selections with me at various times throughout the year.

According to Last.fm and Spotify, here are the artists I’ve listened to the most in the past 12 months:

  • The National
  • Yeasayer
  • Lorde
  • Majical Cloudz
  • Mindless Self Indulgence
  • IAMX
  • CHVRCHES
  • Zola Jesus
  • Justice
  • Charli XCX

I rediscovered MSI and they have an 80’s inspired take on ‘Bring the pain’ which is… well… just amazing.

As for tracks, it’s dominated mostly by tracks from the new The National album:

  • Lorde – Royals
  • Majical Cloudz – Bugs Don’t Buzz
  • Lorde – The Love Club
  • The National – I Should Live in Salt
  • The National – Demons
  • The National – Don’t Swallow the Cap
  • The National – Fireproof
  • Majical Cloudz – Notebook
  • The National – Heavenfaced
  • Yeasayer – I Remember
  • Lorde – Bravado
  • Lorde – Million Dollar Bills
  • CHVRCHES – Recover
  • Charli XCX – You – Ha Ha Ha
  • CHVRCHES – ZVVL

Lorde is up there so much obviously because the album is good, but also because there are only 4 tracks on it, so I would just leave it on repeat.
