Sunday Playlist #43

Sunday Wednesday Playlist #43: Favourite Recordings of 2013 — Not-pop

Well, all things considered, I don't have enough of a grip on 2013 to do a full on "best of" list. (Hell, at my pace, I'm still not ready to pronounce on 2011.) But there have been a few of the recordings that I've posted that have stuck with me for one reason or another. Poptones can be found here and here — this one's all about noise, drones and other strange atmospheres to breathe in.

P.S.: It looks like the exfm widget that I've been using to make the music streaming go (I think that's the technical term) is going to disappear shortly. If anyone knows of an simple, easy-to-implement alternative, please let me know — otherwise, I'll be losing some functionality here.
