You guys! It’s almost 2014! I really feel 2013 was a great year for indie music. A lot of great bands put out new music (Phoenix!, Lorde,Pacific Air). I grew into liking some bands that I didn’t necessarily like before this year (The National, Cults, Young The Giant, Arcade Fire..still no hope for Mumford & Sons YUCK!). There was also a lot of really amazing bands/artists that made it to the spotlight (Lorde, Haim, Chvrches, The Royal Concepts, New Politics). Of course I made a playlist for my 2013 favorites (what kind of music blogger would I be if I didn’t?!). A handful of the tracks on the playlist really stuck out for me this, basically meaning that I may or may night have been so excited at first listen that I teared up and put the song on repeat for that entire week. I also had a bunch of favorites as in favorite song I heard on TV, favorite live show I saw, favorite album, etc. so here those are:
Hey guys! In case you didn’t hear Itunes Radio has been streaming The Hunger Games Catching Fire soundtrack, even though technically we can’t get our hands on it until tomorrow. I immediately fell in love with this song (Elastic Heart) the second I heard the beat. The rest of the soundtrack is equally impressive. Imagine Dragons, and Lorde both have amazing songs on it too!

This song just came up on my Pandora and I immediately wanted to be driving in my car with all the windows down doing a little bit o’ this…
haha, check it out for yourself!
