El Somnambulo’s Favorite Songs of 2013: The Top Ten!

Filed in Arts and Entertainment by on December 26, 2013

Quite the eclectic collection. I sincerely hope that you find some stuff you love and some stuff you can’t stand. Me? I love all these,  and in this reverse numerical order:

10. Steve Earle: Invisible


9. Jaimeo Brown w/Geri Allen: Power of God


8. Courtney Barnett: Avant Gardener


7. Sarah Jarosz: Over the Edge


6. Rhye: Open


5. John Murry: Little Colored Balloons


4. The Lone Bellow: You Never Need Nobody


3. Parquet Courts: Stoned & Starving (couldn’t resist the live jam version…neither could my butt; kinda reminds me of Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd of Television…and/or Sonic Youth)


2. Jason Isbell: Relatively Easy (my fave song off my by-far fave album of the year, Southeastern)


1. Kacey Musgraves: Merry-Go-Round (how does someone so young write a bleepin’ classic like this?)


If you’re late to this sock hop, be sure to check out #’s 25-# 11 here.

OK, so what did you love and what did you hate? What are your favorite songs of the year? I know that there are some serious music marks amongst you. Feel free to share.

    They may be a little commercial, but they got chops.
