better late than never. here is the list of the 2013 favorites in music. first 18 tracks are from 9 albums i listened to on repeat at various times during the year. last 9 tracks are songs that will be on repeat for me for who knows how long…
oops. i sort of fell off for a while. it felt wrong not to do a list so here’s a delayed reaction to my top listen list from 2012. per usual there is no order. 2012 was a great year for varied listening.
macklemore & ryan lewis: the heist > can’t hold us
i couldn’t get enough of this album. in addition to can’t hold us, listen to same love, now.
lord huron: lonesome dreams > time to run i was so happy when i came across lord huron. this album was right up my alley. so many layers sounding serene and upbeat all at the same time.
plus the video is great, i am a sucker for Westerns.
japandroids: celebration rock > the house that heaven built
i dare you to listen to this album and not instantly feel pumped up. i got to see them play at The Paradise this year. they put on a great show with lots of energy.
alt-J: an awesome wave > fitzpleasure
lead singer Joe Newman’s voice is definitely not for everyone but that’s what drew me in. side note: possibly one of the oddest videos i’ve seen in awhile.
