2013 Tracks of the Year

Songs can do so much. They can evoke, evolve, emerge when you least expect it. Bury themselves. Make you shimmy, make you shake. Make you write. Create. Be still. Be wild. Allow you to connect to something real without knowing what it is that you connect to. Songs to sing and make the world go round. Here’s some stonkers from 2013. They are in no particular order and they don’t feature on any of my albums or eps of the year which you can check out here.
