Best Music of 2013

on December 8, 2013

Well it’s almost the end of the year so time for those inevitable ‘end of year’ type lists. I started off this year really wanting to be a music journalist but have ended it wanting to pursue the path of alternative healer/reader. But thanks a lot to doing the music journalism I did hear some great music this year and has a few choice tracks for you that I enjoyed.

One band I only discovered this year through their album ‘Indigo Meadow’ is The Black Angels. I listened to this album a lot this year, great retro psychedelic rock with a dark edge. I also saw them live. Review of album here


The only other band I saw live this year were Taffy. A band from Japan, they really make me think of 90’s Brit Pop with their sweet indie pop. Their drummer is also the happiest drummer I have ever seen!

Alice in Chains brought out a new album this year and they still have that great grungy 90’s sound.

Comancehi impressed with a great Valentine’s Day release. Review of album here

Deap Vally released their debut this year and they have released some amazing tracks. Single review here

Kate Nash released a new album ‘Girl Talk’ which was much more punky but still catchy. I personally loved the change of style. review here

Another new band I fell in love with Valentiine- review

Shockingly I still need to get this to add to my collection but KATHLEEN FUCKING HANNA released new music this year by reviving her band The Julie Ruin.
