Favourites of 2013

2013 marked a year of big change for myself. As you can see by the fact that this is my first post since the end of August, and it isn’t a photo post, music photography has taken a backseat in my day to day. Being back in school (if even only for just one class) has a bit to do with this, as well as having an unpredictable work schedule.

That didn’t stop me from listening to new music, as well as catching up on some old music (getting my iPod fixed played a big part in re-discovering some old staples in my life). So this year, I’ve decided to make two lists. The first is a list of songs that came out in 2013, with the second being a list of songs from pre-2013 that got some heavy rotation (thanks in part to seeing bands live, or just re-discovering some long last classics)

Without further adieu, here’s 2013. (check back tomorrow for pre-2013)
