Top ten record of 2013

Recommended Posts

For those of us into neatly categorizing and wrapping up the year, I thought this may be a good place to discuss music of 2013. What did you find yourself listening to most?

I suppose it'd be proper form for me to start.

1. Self Defense Family – Try Me

2. Restorations – LP2

3. Touche Amore – Is Survived By

4. Comadre – s/t

5. Mark Kozelek and Desertshore – s/t

6. Paint it Black – Invisible (generally I do EPs separate, but this is too good)

7. Into It. Over It. – Intersections

8. A Wilhelm Scream – Partycrasher

9. Iron Chic – The Constant One

10. Deafheaven – Sunbather

edit: I also just realized there's a typo in the subject line. Damnit.

My Bloody Valentine - m b v

I don't know if I've really listened to anything else that was released in 2013. For a good part of the year I was pinching pennies to pay for tattoos and that made my budget for buying music basically nothing. Maybe I'll try to come up with a list of the records I was most into regardless of release date.

Palms - Palms for sure. I feel like there's more but I can't think of them right now. That one just sticks out in my mind.

Oh shoot, is this new albums that came out in 2013 or just what we listened to? Sorry, I'm a confused mess most of the time.

I was intending new records of 2013, but that seems to have gone over like a lead balloon. Haha.

Yay! I was right! Well I like albums FROM 2013 better because I'm always on the hunt for new music. I get too comfortable with my "oldies".

I barely heard enough new records this year to make a top 10 list, so I'll just post what stuck out the most:

Milk Music - Cruise Your Illusion LP

After Dark 2 3xLP (Italians Do It Better compilation)

Hmmm honestly, for the most part I don't listen to whole albums, just the songs I like off of them. But for me, I bought two albums this year. They were that good to me. Dont hate, but they were Ceremonials by Florence and The Machine, and Save Rock and Roll by Fall Out Boy. I know quite a few people hate Fall Out Boy, but this album is actually really good.

Now if we were talking best albums of a lifetime, in my top would be the self titled Emarosa album, but it's over 4 years old. The soundtrack of my last two years of high school.

@CultExciter, that el-p/killer mike might be the heaviest thing on your list! Heard a couple tracks on it. That last killer mike that el-p produced sounded real good too.

Here's stuff that got played this year:

Uncle acid and the deadbeats-bloodlust

Lycia-cold

The smiths-singles collection

Diiv-Oshin (shoegazing type stuff)

Esoteric-Paragon of dissonance

Immortal-Sons of northern darkness

Magnetic fields-The charm of the highway strip

Hot Water Music-entire catalog of releases

M83-Hurry up, we're dreaming

Darkthrone-Black flags and dark thrones

Mark Lanegan-first 5 albums

Dark Sanctuary-L'être las - L'envers du miroir (neo-classical)

Also, I've been watching lots of leroy troy playing old timey banjo tunes on youtube.

I just saw you listed Restorations. Jon Loudon is an old friend of mine.
