Yo La Tengo - Stupid Things
Free Energy - Dance All Night
Foals - My Number

Eels - On the Ropes
Autre Ne Veut - Gonna Die (OK, there's no question, this was absolutely my favorite song of 2013)

M83 - Oblivion
Shout Out Louds - Hermila
Fitz and the Tantrums - Break the Walls
The National - Slipped
Vampire Weekend - Finger Back
Classixx - Holding On
Delorean - Dominion
No Joy - Lunar Phobia
CHVRCHES - Recover
Yuck - Rebirth
Los Camp! - What Death Leaves Behind
HAIM - Don't Save Me
St. Lucia - When the Night


Biggest Disappointment: Phoenix - Bankrupt!
Biggest Disappointment for a 1,000 intangible reasons: Fall Out Boy - Save Rock & Roll
Band of the Year: Wampire!
Biggest Surprise: Bell X1 - Chop Chop I've loved these guys for a long time, but this is the first album they've ever released that has been consistently good from start to finish and I really wish they were more popular.

My God, I love that album. I was just running through it trying to decide which track was my favorite and it was the hardest decision of my life.

Oh man an unexpected sexy saxophone just popped up during the 2nd song.

A coworker just popped into office to ask me what I'm listening to.

Oh my. This St Lucia album is awesome!
