2013 Wrap up

Before I get started, I just wanted to sum up what has been a brilliant year in music. Does it get better every year or just more accessible? Who knows but as each year goes by we get introduced to essentially 1000s of new artists, re-introduced to past loves and anticipate our favourite artists new releases.

To kick it off I just want to list a few tracks from the year that didn’t get a place in my favourite albums of the year.

*Just wanted to quickly shout out for anyone who discovered Light Up Gold, the wonderful Parquet Courts record, it was released in 2012 not 2013….
