Best Songs Of 2013


So, finally, some reviews for the recently departed 2013. First, songs. Many great ones released in 2013. The melodic gems of Vampire Weekend. The guitar stylings of Kurt Vile. The sledgehammers of Kanye West. But it was one song I kept returning to. The sheer beauty and glorious nature of "Song For Zula" had me in rapture from beginning to end.
