Brendan Masala's Albums Of 2013 (Top Ten, Hobourable Mention, and Another Fifteen Because Im Fickle)
Happy New Year! Well I guess this list is kinda redundant now, it being 2014 and all. But I had the list kinda written up, so it may as well be here. I won't bother with links and such - you can do that on your own - but rest assured, we have written about these albums, and you can hunt them down quite easily...
1. Bed Wettin' Bad Boys - Ready For Boredom
2. Batpiss - Nuclear Winter
3. Michael Beach - Golden Theft
4. The Spinning Rooms - Complicating Things
5. Oneohtrix Point Never - R Plus Seven
6. James X Boyd & the Boydoids - James X Boyd & the Boydoids/Super Low
7. Pissed Jeans - Honeys
8. Kwaidan - Make All The Hell Of Dark Metal Bright
9. Yes I'm Leaving - Mission Bulb
10. Running - Vaguely Ethnic
Honourable Mention - Ensemble Economique. Brian Pyle's myriad releases were all of a stellar standard this year, and I found it too difficult to settle on just one. You should hunt them all down though - the guy's stretchin the outer limits.
