SullDaBull’s Albums of 2013

2013 is rapidly coming to a close which is good and bad in equal amounts. Good because this is when all the end of year lists start to surface. Bad because we’re all that little bit older…

Any list you can think of, published by any magazine or website you can think of, begin to do the rounds;

  • Best Albums of the Year
  • Best Films of the Year
  • Best Books of the Year
  • Best Games of the Year
  • and I shit you not, Best Wigs of the Year

Which goes to show that there really is a list for everyone out there. So for what it’s worth, I’ve waded into the list maelstrom with my albums of the year below (complete with an added bonus of my BBC essential mix of the year too). It’s based on nothing more scientific than a bunch of albums I’ve played and enjoyed the most this year. Which, let’s be honest, is all it really should be…

  • Arctic Monkeys – AM
  • Autre Ne Veut – Anxiety
  • Chance the Rapper – Acid Rap
  • Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
  • Daniel Avery – Drone Logic
  • Disclosure – Settle
  • El-P & Killer Mike – Run the Jewels
  • Haim – Days Are Gone
  • Jagwar Ma – Howlin
  • James Blake – Overgrown
  • Janelle Monae – The Electric lady
  • Jon Hopkins – Immunity
  • John Grant – Pale Green Ghosts
  • Kanye West – Yeezus
  • Kendrick Lamar – Good Kid, M.A.A.D City
  • Matthew White – Big Inner
  • Moderat – II
  • Queens of The Stone Age – like Clockwork…
  • Essential Mix of the Year – Catz N Dogz

I’ve knocked up a spotify playlist which includes most of the above. Acid Rap by Chance the Rapper is free from his website, or over on dattpiff.

Run the Jewels available over at Fools Gold Records for the princely sum of your email. Totally worth it breadbin.
