Last week, we counted down our 25 favourite albums of 2013. It was a tough process, and we left a lot of deserving artists and their albums off the list.  But to somewhat make amends, we’ve created a playlist of 81 songs from albums that we have enjoyed this year. Some of the songs were included in our countdown. Others were featured in our twice-weekly articles on new music. And some, well, they are making their appearance for the first time.

To help you enjoy the music, we have put the playlists on three different sites.

  • For Spotify users, you can listen on Rich’s station — on Spotify (note, however, that not all songs are available on Spotify)
  • For 8Tracks listeners, you can hear the playlist on Ben’s account – on 8 Tracks
  • If you prefer YouTube, you can listen to it on our new Channel – on YouTube

If you’re curious, the playlist is below. Keep in mind that this isn’t in order of our favourite tracks; just some of our favourites included in a single playlist.

Thank you so much for reading our stuff and following us throughout the year. May you, your family, and your friends have a prosperous 2014.
