Summer of ’13 playlist

I’ve added a “make a playlist” habit on Lift. Mixtapes always bring me joy, so I think making a habit out of this will help me with my happiness issues. This one is mostly modern indie with a classic twist (you know, those bands that either deliberately or accidentally sound like they’re from the 70s). And The Clash, who actually were from the 70s. There’s also a bit of a reggae theme.


My 2012 Top Tracks

According to Last.fm, these were my top tracks of 2012. Most of these are from my Paxil playlist, and obviously I had some favorite albums that I listened to a lot.

(I thought I’d publish it before New Years to avoid contaminating the results with Sufjan Christmas tunes…)
