My Favorite Songs of 2013, So Far

So, it's mid-June, a good time to start taking stock of the musical year. I've been writing about songs since Brandy's O.G. beef with Monica and I swear that there has never been a better time for music. There's so much innovative, give-no-fuks stuff out there, and it's coming from so many places--blogs, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Spotify, and now Jigga's new Samsung shit.

Anyway, here are the tracks that I've been feeling the most this year. I know it's missing some big names (Daft Punk's "Fragments of Time" and Disclosure's "White Noise" just missed the cut.) But this is based on shit that I actually play. Men lie; women lie; iTunes don't!

1. James Blake - "Retrograde"


2. A.S.A.P. Rocky - "Wild For The Night"


3. fthrsn - "Middle School Dance"


4. Fossil - "The Times They Never Change"


5. Kurt Vile - "Wakin' On A Pretty Day"
