Favourite songs of 2013

Here are my thirty favourite tracks of 2013. I won’t say ‘best’ because that’d suggest knowledge and objectivity.

While Parquet Courts’ sensational Stoned And Starving is way out on top, Chvrches has eight of the thirty. Their debut – The Bones Of What You Believe – is my album of the year.
