In early July, we compiled a list of our favorite songs of the year, so far. Doing that seemed fun at the time, lists always are to us, it's one of the reasons why we're here. Now, at the tail end of the year, we're faced with making a list of our favorite songs of the year, and we really don't know what to do with those songs from then. We still love them, listen to them quite often in fact, but we feel like we should exclude them from our end of the year list. Next year, we won't go to the trouble of composing any silly mid-year lists. Before we start rolling out our 30 favorite songs early next week, we'd like to revisit our mid-year favorites, 20 in all. Stream them all below in one handy playlist created just for you.
Since BIRD's 'Sea of Trees' wasn't on Soundcloud or Bandcamp, this YouTube video of a performance of the song will have to suffice.
