Albums Of The Year 2013
We’re at that time of year again where we have to route through our personal record collections and scan over the shop stock at least 50 times to try and find all the things that we have bought and loved over the last 12 months. This year has seen a lot of variation between the staff here in what we have bought. The only album that all 3 of us bought and fully agreed on was our Number 1, The brilliant MATTHEW E. WHITE – BIG INNER who, with his Spacebomb crew, play us 7 tracks that groove along in a most blissful and lazy way. With soul and jazz elements throughout and comparisons to Allen Toussaint and Stax records to name but a few. And with choirs and brass hidden in the mix, and his hushed vocals, like someone whispering in your ear, he has managed to create a real timeless record. Hats off Sir! Lots of other things have pleased all 6 ears of ours and looking back over the list it’s clear to see that it has been another fantastic year for new music. We could gush over every album in the list but we’ll save it for when you come in store and buy any of these lovely albums. Here are the shop Top 10.
