Best Albums of the Year 2013

So, 2013 eh? Maybe it was just because it was the year I finally got round to getting a paid Spotify account, but it seemed to me that there was a ridiculous amount of great music in 2013. It definitely felt like an album year to me, so hopefully you’ll find a few on this list that you really dig. As with the songs, we didn’t set a limit to the albums on this list – there were as many great albums as there were great albums, so setting a fixed limit seemed to defeat the purpose. We’re joined by Dave and Bren and you can hear our Egonomist podcast of the year in music here. We’ve also got a Best of 2013 Spotify playlist here. Enjoy!

Best Songs of the Year 2013

2013 was an amazing year. If you didn’t hear any music you liked then you simply weren’t listening. It definitely felt like more of an albums year to me though, which is why you’ll find that a lot of the songs on the list are from otherwise disappointing albums or are from one-off single releases – we didn’t want to double up too much with our albums list. This year we roped in some mates to help us through our critique of albums: meet Dave and Bren. You can also hear us talking about the year in music on Dave and Dan’s Egonomist podcast, and check out our Best of 2013 Spotify playlist. Enjoy our best songs of 2013!

Top Songs: The 1975 – ‘Sex’

Wow. I somehow missed Manchester band The 1975’s Sex EP when it came out late last year, which is a shame cause it’s fucking amazing. I’ve caught up now though, and I have to say that “Sex” is one of the best songs I’ve heard for ages. I just can’t stop listening to it. The band have two EPs out at present – the aforementioned Sex and the more recent Music For Cars, which is also excellent – and a third, IV, on the way later this week. There’s also an album due in September which based on everything else they’ve done could be a contender for album of the year. “Sex” is admittedly a bit of a departure from the band’s usual sound which is more upbeat dreampop, but all of their tunes are pretty amazing regardless of style. “Sex” sort of reminds me of Glasvegas at their finest … Read more
