With the new year comes fresh excitement about where music will take us over the next 365 days. Our Heavy Rotation 2013 Playlist suggests a diverse group of exciting up-and-comers who we think have a good chance to be your most played tunes.
There are uplifting songs from the likes of Ms Mr and Rhye, mysterious duos who make hauntingly beautiful tracks free from ego. Little Green Cars offers a rousing take on country rock, Irish style. King Krule (formerly Zoo Kid) brings the experimental beats to put on immediate repeat, and rising Canadian star The Weeknd sounds poised to take it to the next meteoric level.
Listen to the playlist above for these selections and many more, a set of nearly two hours that offers the sound of the future.
