My Top 11 Albums of the Year, 2013

The current issue of Uncut has a very interesting Best of 2013 supplement, which includes the albums of the year. The list was compiled from Top 20 lists supplied by the magazine's writers. It's a bit arbitrary, of course, but harmless. When I voted I went for the records that haven't moved from the top of the CD player. Here are the top 11. (The other 9 may follow at a later date).



1.         Bill Callahan – Dream River

2.         Hiss Golden Messenger – Haw

3. The National – Trouble Will Find Me


4. .         Chris Forsyth – Solar Motel


5.         Yo La Tengo – Fade



6.         David Bowie – The Next Day

7.         Low – The Invisible Way


8.         The Shouting Matches – The Shouting Matches


9.         William Tyler – Impossible Truth

10.         Pictish Trail – Secret Soundz Vol 2


11.      Denison Witmer – Denison Witmer
