The Sound of 2013

I listen to music all day, every day during the working week.

Here's my personal Top 10 from 2013 in Letterman-style reverse order.

10. Drenge - Bloodsports
    - 2 man garage punk. Helmet reincarnated.
9. Young Galaxy - Pretty Boy
    - Indie electro pop from Montreal. The whole catalog is excellent.
8. Blackbird Blackbird - It's War
    - Chemical Brothers meets Morrissey with added Ibiza chill. I was hooked after 10 seconds.
7. Hooray For Earth - No Love
    - Indie rock fused with electronica. The Happy Mondays on a downer in Brooklyn.
6. Mr Little Jeans - Oh Sailor
    - Electro pop with a backing choir, also check out the cover of 'The Suburbs'.
5. Say Lou Lou - Julian
    - Swedish electro pop, high-style and ethereal vocals. Should be taped to the cover of Vogue.
4. Other Lives - Take Us Alive
    - Oklahoma folk-tronica. Discovered via the amazing skate video 'India Within'
3. The National - Graceless
    - It's not 'Fake Empire' but it's pretty damn good.
2. Daughter - Youth
    - Haunting folk. Bleak and beautiful.
1. The Jezabels - Endless Summer
    - Best band you've never heard of. INXS plus Texas with a bit of the Smashing Pumpkins on the side.

I'm on as joeharris76 (of course). Stop by and say hi.
