My Best of 2013

Bill Callahan-Dream River-Drag City One of the most beautiful albums I've heard in a long time. 
Shearwater-Fellow Travelers-Sub Pop on my top 10 list two years in a row, this time with a very unique album of covers.
Suuns-Images Du Futur-Secretly Canadian the album neo-psych band Tame Impala was trying to make.
Washed Out-Paracosm-Sub Pop a much more mature and lush album from the King of chillwave. 
Soviet Soviet-Fate-Felte classic post-punk via Italy. 
Midlake-Antiphon-ATO a modern classic rock masterpiece.
Savages-Silence Yourself-Matador post-punk ala PIL & Siouxsie. 
Mazzy Star-Seasons of Your Day-Rhymes of an Hour their finest moment. 
King Khan & The Shrines-Idle No More-Merge soul-drenched garage freakout. 
Fuzz-Fuzz-In The Red Ty Segall's stoner rock project.
