2013 was another excellent year for music. I put together a little mix of some of the songs and artists that meant something to me this year. Enjoy!
I knew when I heard “Flaws” a few years ago that these guys would be going somewhere. SXSW 2013 marked the first time they played in the US and they exceeded my expectations. I interviewed Bastille’s mastermind, Dan Smith, for a High Voltage article and the interview will go down as one of my favorites due to Dan’s attitude and amazing energy. I was slightly alarmed when I saw them play later in the year at The Troubadour and the audience was full of young and overly enamored girls, but that can only be a sign of just how big they will continue to become.
