My take on the obligatory end of year run-down. Not necessarily the 31 best tracks or singles of the year, or tracks from the 31 best albums of the year; just 31 tracks from 2013 that made me go “ooh”, and “aahh”, and leave me dizzied, slightly scared, chilled, and knowing they deserve to be shared.

So, in no particular order (which is, like, just fantastic for a playlist, right?) here’s a whole heap of music that has kept my faith in the art through 2013.
