The Breakdown’s Top 100 Songs of 2013

Posted: January 24, 2014 in Uncategorized

Welcome to and congratulations on finding your way to the best countdown of 100 songs of 2013 out there! There are some incredible tracks in this list, 100 of them to be precise. They are of an indie pop / indie rock and underground bent, so if you have never heard of some of these artists, do not let that distract you, just listen and I promise you will be rewarded.

A hugely popular Australian radio station markets their top 100 as the “world’s largest musical democracy” (read: one where people with no idea about music, and that don’t even listen to said radio station – are given their say, drowning out the real music fans, and serving up slop like Thrift Store and Big Jet Plane as number 1’s).

Well, if musical quality matters to you, welcome to the world’s best musical benevolent dictatorship, where quality reigns, and your good taste in music will not be mocked. Get it, put it on, have a party.
