    Default Halfway Through 2013 Favorites

    Hi, everyone. It's time to tell us all what the stand out albums, EPs, and singles so far in 2013 have been for you. Because I'm behind on music, and because we all love making lists and then arguing about lists. What do you love?

    So far, the albums I've been listening to with frequency and adoration are (in no particular order):

    Phosphorescent - Muchacho
    Rhye - Woman
    Girls Names - The New Life
    Unknown Mortal Orchestra - II
    Thee Oh Sees - Floating Coffin
    My Bloody Valentine - MBV
    Deerhunter - Mononamia
    Maximillion Dunbar - House of Woo
    Locked Groove - Heritage

    Ah my favorite early summer thread on this board except every year we jump the gun on this. I think the end of June is the halfway mark but no complaints here. Going to start making a list.

    No particular order:

    Merzbow/Gustafsson/Pandi - Cuts (great noise/free jazz hybrid)
    Yo La Tengo - Fade
    Fire! Orchestra - Exit! (fantastic free jazz/rock freakout anchored by Gustafsson)
    Black Chamber - Black Chamber
    Jasper TX - An Index of Failure
    My Bloody Valentine - m b v
    William Tyler - Impossible Truth
    Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City
    Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Push the Sky Away

    either it has been an exceptionally weak year for ambient or I just haven't been paying attention. Last year there were so many ambient records I felt I had to own; this year, none.

    They're very much in the same vein as Bleached (though not as good). A girl band doing that Primitives throwback sound that a lot of bands seem to be doing well right now.

    Think Yuck, but replace Dinosaur, Jr., etc with Lush, MBV, etc. Shoegaze fuzz and sweet pop melodies. Nothing groundbreaking but very enjoyable.
