I did not work hard enough this year. While I was fortunate enough to have a few albums pushed my way, a change of musical interest may have deflated any pique or interest in new music, reverting me to listen mostly to my pre-existing library. That being said, enjoy my top picks of 2013.

Top 10 albums of 2013:

1. Palms “Palms”
2. Cage The Elephant “Melophobia”
3. Iron and Wine “Ghost on Ghost”
4. Foals “Holy Fire”
5. The Moth The Flame “&”
6. Charles Bradley featuring Menahan Street Band- “Victim of Love”
7. Senses Fail “Renacer”
8. Arctic Monkeys “AM” (I’m shocked as you are, wow!)
9. How To Destroy Angels “Welcome Oblivion”
10. The Civil Wars -“The Civil Wars”
