We’ve hit mid-week, and because I promised I would, this intro is yet another reminder that outside of the Pick Your Poison posts, we’re in the season of Listmas here at Faronheit. All this week, the Top 50 Songs of 2013 countdown is going on, with the unveiling of ten new songs each day. Today we’re at the halfway point, and obviously it’s only going to get better from here. You can see all the previous and current posts, plus all future Listmas 2013 ones, by going here. It’s a lot of fun, and a fantastic way to discover some of the best 2013 has to offer outside of these daily Pick Your Poison editions. Speaking of which, today’s notable tracks in this set include songs from Dead Waves, The Difference Machine, Ducky, Marika Hackman, Mezzanine, Snowflake and Tom Appleman. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream cuts from Jim James, Phantogram, Pure Bathing Culture, Speedy Ortiz, Tiger Waves and Yuzima.
