We Can’t Be Beat – Favorite Tracks 12/12/12

James Little Near-Miss(Painting – Near-Miss by James Little)

It’s become an annual tradition. Each December I send out a playlist of my favorite tracks accumulated throughout the year. It’s something I enjoy doing and always generates great feedback. There is a typical span across genres including several strong contributions from my friends at Ghosly, Ceremony and Cascine. I’ve been fortunate to travel quite a bit this year, seeing several cities for the first time, racking up a year of personal highlights that I think you’ll find reflected in the optimism at the core of this year’s list.

  1. Great list! Good appreciation towards some of the best artists of the year and really good to see you chose more underrated songs from albums (“Lost”, “Gun Shy”, “Sunset”, even “Recipe”). Have a look at our Top Tracks/Albums if you get the chance.
