I have FOMO when it comes to music, so I have been focusing all week on listening to as much 2013 music as possible. I scoured other people’s mid-year lists, downloaded some stuff from eMusic / bought some stuff on iTunes, watched all kinds of clips on YouTube.
At this point in the year, electronic music is king. There are also big releases that have yet to drop and will definitely shake up the year-end list (Drake and The Weeknd, to name a few). The records at the top are unsurprising.
Disclosure – Settle
Kanye West – Yeezus
Phosphorescent – Muchacho
The National – Trouble Will Find Me
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Mosquito
Kacey Musgraves – Same Trailer Different Park
Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City
Other things worth listening to:
Akron/Family – Sub Verses
Woodkid – The Golden Age
Daughn Gibson – Me Moan
Lightning Dust – Fantasy
Deptford Goth – Life After Defo
Flume – Flume
Little Boots – Nocturnes
Autre Ne Veut – Anxiety
Daughter – If You Leave
Very cool story, bro.
