What a good year of music. There are many artists that I won’t list but enjoyed the hell out of their 2013 releases. I spent a lot of 2013 discovering and rediscovering older records. However, the last few months have seen each of these records on repeat. I had a hard time nailing down the top 5, switching things around several times. Each with unique qualities and incredible in their own way.
No statement here…just some albums that I really enjoyed.
