Music discovery truly is one of life’s simple pleasures. I for one look forward to hearing “my new favorite band” every year. And year after year, i’m introduced to a plethora of new and exciting music. For today’s edition of (31) Days, i’d like to focus on a few of my favorite musical discoveries from this past year.
But first, I need to give a little shout out to the people that are usually introducing me to all of my new favorites: Nialler9 (& the Nialler9 Podcast), The Noise Pop Podcast, Largehearted Boy, NPR’s All Songs Considered, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, KEXP’s Music That Matters Podcast, and The Burning Ear. Thanks for another great year of music discovery. Can’t wait to hear what you’ve got in store for me in 2014.
And now without further ado, please enjoy a few of my favorite musical discoveries of 2013.
