2013

Pitchfork Top 100 Tracks of 2013

In convenient list form. Kanye West and Vampire Weekend  find themselves well represented in the track list, and the accolades will likely follow as the two are the likely top two in the albums list. Looking back at my predictions, it seems ridiculous that I excluded Drake (a Pitchfork favourite), and judging from this list, it will be in the top 10, and could well make the top 5. Slight surprise to see Arcade Fire not well received, but should still receive a top 10 finish. Sky Ferreira and Majical Cloudz seem likely to earn high spots as well. A very good collection of songs, and we will have to see how this plays out into the album list. Have a look at our ‘Pitchfork Top 20 Albums of 2013 Prediction’ to see what we think, I will leave it unchanged even though my thoughts on it are different after viewing this list (below). Enjoy the music.

5. Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
