Your top albums of 2013...


Recommended Posts

Not surprising that none of mine are on pitchforks top 400 albums of the year list as I did have a gander and give a listen to a number of new albums I didn't know of, pretty much all of them being very disappointing. I don't get how they seemingly make up sub genres to describe music like dream pop or shoegaze or drone or chillwave, what the hell are those?

Here are mine, I am always a fan of seeing some peoples lists on here, mostly the ones that aren't in the top 400 of pitchforks list...

The Wood Brothers - The Muse

Blitzen Trapper - IIV

The Avett Brothers - Magpie and the Dandelion

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes - Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes

Blitzen Trapper - VII

Foxygen - We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors...

Hayden - Us Alone

Charles Bradley - Victim of Love

The National - Trouble Will Find Me

Neko Case - The Worse Things Get...

Arcade Fire - Reflektor

Deep Dark Woods - Jubilee

Okkervil River - The Silver Gymnasium

Jason Isbell - Southeastern

I think that Neko Case, The National and Blitzen Trapper would share second prize, with Jason Isbell winning album of the year. When I first heard that one I don't think I listened to anything else for at least 2 weeks.

The most disappointing release of the year for me belongs to Dr. Dog. Not that it sucked, but it just didn't have the chutzpah of their 3 or 4 albums and I was expecting to love it after hearing the awesome first single, Broken Heart, weeks before the album dropped (read: leaked).

I assume you're being facetious but just in case... what list are you referring to? Pitchfork does a top 50 and it isn't out yet.

As for the sub genres, I was totally serious, who do these hipsters think they are?

Is it that hard to look shit up??

Pffffttttt, according to Wiki;

"The term Dream pop is often used, particularly in the United States, to describe bands who were part of the shoegazing scene, and shoegazing is seen as a part of dream pop."

My point exactly, hipsters making shit up to sound cool, its all the same.

It was pretty obvious Yeezus would get album of the year when they gave it a 9.5.

Curveball!

Can someone explain what's so great about the new Vampire Weekend album? I try to get into this band but lose intereest after a few spins. They're OK I guess. Should I be paying more attention to the lyrics?
