20 Local Songs of 2013 (pt. 1 of 2)

Posted By on Sun, Dec 15, 2013 at 10:51 PM

As I've intoned elsewhere, it's essentially ludicrous to try and hem the whole of a calendar year's released music into a quintessential list. These are just songs that stuck out for me, garnered the most replays and showed each artist at one/some of their personal best creative moments...  ...
