Top 10 Albums Of 2013

December 31, 2013 by tincanreview

Selecting 10 albums from a year which has produced so many great releases is close to impossible. In the end I’ve had to be ruthless and choose artists who I feel have taken a step forward rather than tread familiar ground. The albums in this list are not presented in order of preference, as to do so would diminish their value and overlook individuality. Instead this is a selection of unique records which you shouldn’t start 2014 without.

Lord Huron – Lonesome Dreams (Play It Again Sam)

‘I’ll search the world until there’s no place left to go. And if she leaves it, I will follow’

Lord Huron

Drew Holcomb And The Neigbors – Good Light (Good Time Records)

‘But no matter how far these songs take me, if my dreams come true or the heartaches break me…’

Josh Ritter – The Beast In Its Tracks (Yep Roc)

‘There are things I will not sing for the sting of sour notes’


Treetop Flyers – The Mountain Moves (Loose Music)

‘Memories have their seasons and lessons all fade’
