2013 Year in Review / Losers Mix


2013, aka the year I started losing steam on this music shit.  Was it a relatively lame year for music, or am I getting old (and relatively lame)?

So which albums were my favorites?  Without thinking about it too hard (and generally from most favorite to least):

  • Kurt Vile – Wakin On A Pretty Daze
  • Parquet Courts – Light Up Gold
  • Thee Oh Sees – Floating Coffin
  • Shannon & the Clams – Dreams In The Rat House
  • Bass Drum Of Death – Bass Drum Of Death
  • Kelela – Cut 4 Me
  • Deerhunter – Monomania
  • Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire – Kismet
  • Sonny & the Sunsets – Antenna to the Afterworld
  • Prodigy – Albert Einstein
  • Run the Jewels – Run the Jewels
  • Action Bronson – SAAB Stories
  • Charles Bradley – Victim of Love
