Top 10 Albums of 2013

Posted March 11th, 2013. Filed under Music

Here are 10 great albums released this year (ranked with some juicy Spotify embeds). It’s been a great music-year already. The plan is to update this list once I hit 20 great albums. Then 30, 40, and finally 50. My unpublished top 50 lists from 2011 and 2012 have taught me that saving things up for some big end of year reveal that no one will read doesn’t work, so let’s try this instead.

1 - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Push the Sky Away

2 - Local Natives - Hummingbird

3 - Rhye - Woman

4 - Dawn Richard - GoldenHeart

5 - Bilal - A Love Surreal

6 - Foxygen - We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic

7 - Unknown Mortal Orchestra - II

8 - Widowspeak - Almanac

9 - Jose James - No Beginning No End

10 - Adam Green and Binki Shapiro - Adam Green and Binki Shapiro

ALSO coming tomorrow - movie discussions (I’m no critic, so I won’t say movie reviews). Blogresurrection is on.

Santigold – Disparate Youth

I will admit to having missed out on Santigold’s first album.  The same thing will not happen this time around.  This track is great and I’m anxiously awaiting more.

Holy cow check out this video

It’s an OK song and an OK video, but the technology on display here is pretty neat - you control the camera.  Check it out to see what I mean.

Obviously, this is an Internet-age video and one has to wonder what they’d do with something like this during MTV’s heyday.  Also, it occurs to me that the 3d viewer-controlled camera concept might be pretty awesome in our AppleTV / Microsoft Kinect powered future…

You know what this means, right?

 

Great video for a great tune from one of last year’s greatest albums.
