As has been already mentioned earlier this week… there was a lot of great music that came out in 2013. So much so that I ended up super-sizing my year end 8track mix from 100 to 150. But since a 150 track mix is way to much to expect anyone to listen to, I've split those 150 pieces of ear candy into three separate bowls. And today is the day that I officially share the second bowl with you (although, if you are a keener and want to listen to all 3 mixes back-to-back, you can do so here).
Like PART 1 before it (and like PART 3 after it), PART 2 is a mix made up of 1/3 of my 150 favourite tunes from this year (for those no good at fractions… that's 50 songs). There is no real order of importance here, so just push play and enjoy the music and don't worry about wondering how a certain song could be placed higher than another song because that's not how these mixes have been made (but feel free to listen to all 3 mixes and then complain about how a certain song didn't make it on either mix).
Below you'll find the track listing for this mix. Each track is either linked to where you can listen to the album on Bandcamp, or if not available on Bandcamp, I've added a link to Bop.FM (which sort of acts like an aggregator for a few different streaming options, which is nice, since no 1 streaming option is used by all / has every song).
