Headphone Commute’s Best of 2013 : Music For The Film Behind Closed Eyelids

In this first installment of Headphone Commute’s Best of 2013, I gather my favorite selections of the year, consisting of music that simply makes you feel. The albums in this list should simply be classified as the soundtracks to your life. No other genre is required. I hope that you’ll agree…

ALL ENTRIES ARE LISTED IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER BY ARTIST

  1. Oops, just now saw your comment about the Broadchurch soundtrack…

    and I was thinking I’m providing you new info, silly me…, should have known better : – )

  2. I’m currently following a TV series called Broadchurch. Really good so far.
    Already during the first episode I felt that the soundtrack has a familiar scent. Then, in the ending credits I saw that Ólafur Arnalds is responsible for the music. Really hope that soundtrack will get a physical release at some point.

    Another release I think could fit in here is Úlfur – ‘White Mountain’ (Western Vinyl).

  3. Yeah, I also missed Steven Price’s ‘Gravity’. But ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’, ‘Stoker’ and ‘For now I am winter’ are on my own list of 2013’s best. We’ll see if we have more in common in the next lists.

    By the way, congratulations for your site.

  4. Great selection – as always ! I miss only one album in the statement :

    Steven Price – Gravity !

    1. Yes! It was hard to pick the top!!! There were a few other runner ups, like Jon Hopkins’ “How I Live Now” OST, another soundtrack by Max Richter “The Last Days On Mars”, oh… and have you heard “Valhalla Rising” by Peter Peter & Peter Kyed?

  5. Wow ! what a way to start off 2014, just listened to Apparat’s Krieg Und Frieden, it is stunningly beautiful, atmospheric, emotional, a masterpiece, thanks for turning me on to this, and thanks for all the marvelous work you have put in over these past 6 years, a lot of what i have discovered in the field of quality music has been down to you, cheers and all the best for the new year !
