2013 in music

I'm FAR too busy for my usual pathologically-detailed run-down this year, you'll have to make do with some of the other 837 end-of-year lists (some of which are alarming, annoying and brilliant). I know all too well there are umpteen albums I haven't touched yet (too busy in the 1970s as usual...) so instead here is a thirty-song snapshot of songs that I properly loved this year. The last track on this list is easily my most-played thing of the year btw.

Still Corners – Berlin Lovers
Bonobo – Cirrus
John Grant – Glacier
Daft Punk – Doin' it Right
Mikal Cronin – Shout It Out
Youth Lagoon – Mute
Laura Mvula – Father, Father
David Bowie – Where Are We Now?
Ciara – Overdose
Daniel Avery – Free Floating
M.I.A. – Bring The Noize - Extended Version
