Each year, I try to put together my list of favorite albums. 2013 has been harder then most with the slew of great music. So, I’m doing two shows before my list that take you through my thoughts on the year.
One trend this year has been the huge amount of mature artists who’ve put out new records. Long time favorites of mine like Superchunk and Yo La Tengo had new records this year. Also, artists that have been on hiatus have come back with strong records of new material - the most remarkable the new album by My Bloody Valentine released after a two decade hiatus. So for my first of three “favorites” show, I’m playing comeback records and albums by great bands that never went away. Tune in for some of my all time favorite bands as well as some artists you may have forgotten but are still going strong.
