Editor’s note: This article was originally published July 14, 2013

This week, as we move deep into the heat of the long summer we decided to take a look back at the year so far and compile a list of our favorite tracks. Thus, we give you the 2013 Midterm Report (National Edition). Not quite a best of list, these are the tracks that Team 360 has on loop, the songs we keep sharing. This is a snapshot of what we’re listening to right now. Crossing almost all genres, it’s a diverse compilation and we’ve broken the track submissions down by each staff member. We hope you enjoy these songs as much as we do, and feel free to drop your own suggestions for songs we’re missing in the comments below.
