The Best of 2013

The Noisey Tracks of The Year: 20-11

We asked everyone that we know and created a definitive list.

HIYA! It's list season right now, the time of year where everyone decides to try and formulate an entire 365 days and hundreds of thousands of releases into one easily digestible order of things. I guess that's how they invented Buzzfeed. Anyway, they're never right and they're never wrong, it's just crowdsourced public opinion, and with that in mind we asked all of our staffers and freelancers at Noisey UK to submit their top tracks of the year. Instead of counting up votes exactly - so that the song everyone kind of didn't mind is number one - we made a shortlist from the votes and then got into a massive fight about it, until 20 songs emerged bloody and victorious.


Tomorrow we'll be announcing The Top Ten (as well as what each writer voted for) but before that, here are the few that just missed out:

20 - Beady Eye: "Flick of the Finger"

19 - Thundercat: "Heartbreak + Setbacks"

18 - Earl Sweatshirt: "Burgundy"

17 - Blood Orange: "Uncle Ace"

16 - BANKS: "Before I Ever Met You"

15 - Denzel Curry: "Threatz"

14 - Bunji Garlin: "Differentology"

13 - King Krule: "Easy Easy"

12 - FKA Twigs: "Water Me"

11: Jai Paul: "Str8 Outta Mumbai"

Tomorrow - The Top Ten will be revealed.
