2013: the compilation

The Eden On The Line electoral college has finally sent its voters home and locked the doors behind them. The annual ritual has drawn to a close with the production of a mixtape featuring 25 of my favourite tracks released in the last twelve months.

This year's line-up looks like this:

  1. Calico County - Steve Earle & The Dukes (& Duchesses)
  2. KV Crimes - Kurt Vile
  3. Da Bourgeoisie - Prince
  4. Ohm - Yo La Tengo
  5. New American Standard - Wussy
  6. Gator's Gym Girl - Braden Gates
  7. Criminology - Tom Russell & The Norwegian Wind Ensemble
  8. The Blues Dharma - Harry Manx
  9. Over - Gum
  10. Burnin' Sun - Jaron Freeman-Fox & The Opposite Of Everything
  11. The Enemy - Roy Harper
  12. Valentine's Day - David Bowie
  13. Goner - Golden Gunn
  14. Where Can I Go? - Laura Marling
  15. Everything Is Not Enough - Del Barber
  16. The Betsey Trotwood - The Coal Porters
  17. Great Lakes - John Smith
  18. Lurker - Steve Gunn
  19. Handyman Blues - Billy Bragg
  20. Why You So Sad - Ahab
  21. I've Got A Name For The Newborn Child - Hiss Golden Messenger
  22. Little Rose - The Black Twig Pickers
  23. Weed And Wine - Promised Land Sound
  24. Embers - Tunng
  25. The Sing - Bill Callahan 

And it sounds rather good...
