To wrap up 2012 we brought you this mix of some of the highlights. Now it’s 2013 and we’re looking ahead to another year of fun. We’re no Mystic Meg, and our crystal balls certainly don’t tell the future, but we do know that there’s a lot of great new music to get excited about in the coming year, and no doubt plenty that we haven’t included in this playlist. So, much like the mix we played you out of 2012 with, here’s a non-exhaustive list of bands and artists to watch out for in 2013. Some you might know, some you might not, but all of them make us excited for one reason or another. Whether they’ve announced a release, or we’re just gagging for more from them this year after they left our hearts and ears in a state of quivering infatuation in 2012. We hope they’ll have the same effect on you. So chuck this on and join us in dreaming about the year ahead. Ahhh…

Tell us below who else you’re looking forward to in 2013.
