Usually I break my music review into two posts because there’s so much to say, but sadly this year it seems like all the people I found great music from in the past few years stopped talking about the music they loved so much, leaving me to find new music on my own (and I sort of didn’t). I didn’t necessarily need to this year, though because there were so many great bands I already loved releasing new content!
Fun Fact: I added 517 songs to iTunes in 2013!
Best New Band of 2013 (New to me)
Of the new bands I did manage to discover on my own this year, I The Mighty easily wins best band of the year. In my top 20 most played songs of the year, I The Mighty owns 6 of them. They’re a band I listened to a ton while writing Dreamsters and a band I don’t see myself growing bored of anytime soon. If you somehow missed all the posts I made dedicated to them this year, now’s your opportunity to hear what they’re all about. Check them out!
