Either I’m getting old and too choosy or this year wasn’t that great music-wise.
Looking back at what I’ve heard this year there are a bunch of good records, but most are part of this list, I didn’t leave much out of it, and even these hardly qualify as “classics”.
Either way, here is my list of favourite albums released in 2013:
- Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City
- James Blake – Overgrown
- Sigur Rós – Kveikur
- Disclosure – Settle
- Arcade Fire – Reflektor
- Woodkid – The Golden Age
- Jai Paul – Jai Paul
- Savages – Silence Yourself
- Kavinsky – OutRun
- Foals – Holy Fire
I also put a playlist of my favourite songs for the year on Spotify.
