2013 has not been a good year for me when it comes to music. It’s not that nothing good came out, on the contrary. I just didn’t have enough time to enjoy it all. I went to just a handful of concerts this year and have yet to sort through 1000 songs which I’ve downloaded since August. This doesn’t mean I don’t have any favorites to share with you of course!
