Roe’s Top 10 Songs of 2013


So being away from WTMD so much of the year, I feel like I’m always streaming or podcasting something from WTMD or NPR Music in order to stay somewhat in the loop. Spending so much time up in the north where there isn’t a station like WTMD, it makes me appreciate that we have a station like this in Baltimore even more! It seems like some of my favorite stuff from this year has been stuff from bands like Mansions or Dads or Crash of Rhinos, which feels sir of like the mid-90’s west coast emo sound. So if some of my favorite tracks of the year sound new to you – check em out!


1) Portugal. The Man – Purple Yellow Red and Blue

2) Local Natives – Breakers

3) Foals – Inhaler

4) Kopecky Family Band – She Is the One

5) James Blake – Retrograde

6) Sally Ford and the Sound Outside – They Told me

7) Mansions – Climbers

8) J Roddy Walston and the Business – Heavy Bells
