Best songs of 2013: Listen to Disclosure, Arcade Fire, Kanye West, the National and more

Here we are at the end of 2013 and the time has come for Reverb to wrap up the year with some of our favorite music. To start things off we give you our picks of the best songs of 2013.

Instead of one master list of songs, we decided to give you some variety — we’ve compiled lists from various Reverb voices who focus on indie-rock, bluegrass, hip-hop, pop music and more. Here you’ll see everyone from Miley Cyrus to Disclosure to Arcade Fire, the National, FIDLAR and more. We also went ahead and compiled the songs into a Spotify playlist, which you can stream below.

If you’d like to chime in with your own favorites, we’ll happily debate our lists with you in the comment section below. Look out for our lists of best concert photos, best artists and more before the year is over.
