best albums of 2013

best of 2013

Unlike the rest of the world, who seem content to publish their “best of” lists in mid-December, I can never really get my head around it until the year is over, which is why this post comes as my first of 2014, rather than my last of 2013.

This post will also be my last of 2014, as I’ve decided to shut down 70/day/wknd. Don’t worry – it’s me, not you.  All the classic reasons apply: I’ve gotten busy with work/school and blogging has become a bit of a drag, so no hard feelings here.

But before you and I part ways, take a minute to check out some of the albums in 2013 that got me going.

    Sorry to hear you’re ending the run of 70 Day Weekend. You’ve turned me on to some great music. All the best for 2014 and beyond!

    • Really appreciate that, and glad you enjoyed it!

    Good list – really dug the Wampire Veekend album too, will have to check some of the other less familiar ones out.

    Yet oh no! It’s just filtered through that you’ve closed down production. /Thought/ you’d gone a bit quiet… I understand the school/work draggage factor, though. Best o’luck with everything, cheers!

    Many thanks for the wonderful tips! Good luck with your ventures and adventures.

  5. I can’t stand Disclosure and AlunaGeorge, but other than them its a solid list.
