It’s springtime, so let’s dust off the cobwebs and talk about music we like. Yes? Yes. Read on for my seven favorite songs of 2013 so far, Brad Nelson’s examination of Paramore and Fall Out Boy returning, Andy Beta’s take on Kurt Vile and the tenacious nature of time, and Michaelangelo Matos’s praise for the new album by DJ Koze. If you want to hear the records in question, head on over to Spotify.
