…And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead – Lost Songs – Superball
School Of Seven Bells – Ghostory – Vagrant

From now on, I have decided to embed playlists from Youtube, as they are easily viewable/listenable by anyone and do not require any sign-up or download of any kind to enjoy the music as you would from the alternatives like Spotify and Rdio. Grooveshark.com is no longer an option as they will eventually be shut down completely.

Just the tracks from the top 20 list are included and they have been re-sequenced for maximum listening pleasure, please enjoy.
