Music of 2013
Compiled across the year, these are my favourite tracks from the albums I liked in 2013. They’re not ranked; just ordered to keep a nice flow between genres.
Perera Elsewhere was an artist recommended to me by Spotify, most likely because ‘Giddy’ features Gonjasufi. I’ve really enjoyed this album and been compelled to come back to it repeatedly.
Palms. I loved ISIS and I like Deftones for the most part but this collaboration did very little for me unfortunately. It’s possible that the anticipation raised my expectations to unrealistic levels, so I wouldn’t say it’s a bad album as such. It passes you by with very little to make you sit up and pay attention and the mix sounds a bit odd to my ears. A lot of top end with the muted low end making the guitars seem a little impotent.
