All posts, Stuff we find

Music we listened to in 2013

Music plays a big part in this ‘house’ – wherever that may be at any given time. We’d like to pretend we’ve increased our knowledge of the Notre Dame school of polyphony from the 12th century – but we listened to other stuff instead.

Here are our favourite songs of the past year – old and new.

Laura – Bat For Lashes

Brass never sounded so lovely.

‘You’re the glitter in the dark’

Cold Skin – To Kill A King

Don’t mess with the wrong people.

‘We waste with love, like our parents did years before’

Facing West – The Staves

Harmonies to die for.

‘Sing me a song, your voice is like silver’

Skip To The Good Bit – Rizzle Kicks

How school should have been.

‘Don’t wanna die, but I quite like heaven’

Sister Golden Hair – America

Sun-drenched South Ruislip.

‘It doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind’

My Lighthouse – Villagers

More lovely harmonies.

‘You’re the kind host, in the port’

Mother Protect – Niki And The Dove

Cloudbusting in the jungle.

‘You can’t keep me down, I am done, I am furious’

Something – Bill Evans and Herb Geller

From 1972. Herb Geller (sax) died just before Christmas 2013.


The Stars Are Out Tonight – David Bowie


‘They’re broke and shamed or drunk or scared, but I hope they live forever’

Warrior – Wishbone Ash

A song for any year.

‘A hundred years in the sunshine’
