    I actually like quite a bit on this list too*, but it's the perfect combination of exactly everything you'd expect an NPR audience to pick.

    * I mean, let's not go crazy, I'm not Wes or anything, but yeah, this hit pretty close to home when it came out.

    The NPR songs list is really pretty great. Lots of variety and good calls. Bunch of stuff I'm unfamiliar with and should dig into as well.

    I really like listener compiled lists. Critics' lists are cool for finding those gems I missed, but the listener lists are more representative of what people were actually listening to and give a better feel for the year.

    Really surprised to see Exhumed getting left off of a lot of the metal lists. I thought it was the best album they've ever released.

    My good friend Fred's list!

    ps Can't wait to see what Brandon Stosuy lists for his favorite albums of 2013!

    FAVORITE ALBUMS

    CarcassCarcass - Surgical Steel
    Try to name one band that took 18 years off and returned with an album of absolute burners. I can only think of one: Carcass. In fact, these songs are better than the entries on their final record Swansong and, depending on who you're talking to, maybe the much revered Heartwork too. 2013's greatest achievement.

    Listen To: "Unfit for Human Consumption"

    FramtidFramtid - Defeat of Civilization
    Guitars like power tools, bulldozing rhythms and vocals that roar! Eleven years removed from their last entry, this LP of Japanese crust-punk with touches of metal is a worthy successor to Under the Ashes, featuring stellar songwriting and an unrelenting assault for the duration of its twenty-plus minutes. This shit is the hardest.

    Listen To: "Nuclear Power Genocide"

    Inter ArmaInter Arma - Sky Burial
    In the tail end of 2012, I got an email from the guys in Inter Arma with a link to the tunes that would eventually become Sky Burial. On the strength of those tracks, which mixed grooves, black metal and southern stylings, I forwarded that record over to Relapse, who eventually signed the band and released one of my favorite albums of the year. I still love this record more than a year later.
    Listen To: "Sky Burial"


    RadioactivityRadioactivity - Radioactivity
    The Marked Men is still Texas's best kept secret. The Denton punk crew released some of the most memorable melodic punk ever recorded, and Radioactivity bears a striking resemblance to those older releases (and some of its key personnel). Some of the catchiest tracks of 2013.

    Listen To: "The Last"


    Raspberry BulbsRaspberry Bulbs - Deformed Worship
    Raspberry Bulbs is the line that connects Christian Death to Darkthrone. If deathpunk continued on its darkly ways, getting more and more extreme, eventually it might end up at the weird strand of goth, black metal and clean-tone punk rock on Deformed Worship. Sparse, shrouded in evil, and insanely good.

    Listen To: "Lusty Climbing"

    Tim HeckerTim Hecker - Virgins
    Here's a little pillow talk for the ladies. For a short while, much like other ambient records, I used to sleep with Virgins on. After a few nights I noticed that I wasn't falling asleep right away, I was following along with the songs, something not so welcome at 3:30 a.m. on a Tuesday with work early the next morning. Virgins' experimental/ambient with orchestral touches, noise, and synth was just too interesting to be relegated to background music.
    Listen To: "Virginal I"

    Clandestine BlazeClandestine Blaze - Harmony of Struggle
    Probably the most traditional of all the picks here, Clandestine Blaze is raw, Finnish black metal out via Northern Heritage. No frills, Harmony of Struggle packs in nine new tracks and a whole lot of hatred into 39 minutes, making it one of CB's best releases in years. This and 2012's With Hearts Toward None by MGLA stayed in high rotation for me in 2013.

    Listen To: "Wings of the Archangel"

    Earl SweatshirtEarl Sweatshirt - Doris
    Lyrics alone, Earl Sweatshirt's earnest and introspective wordplay is enough to make him one of the most interesting of his OFWGKTA team. Yet Earl's cadence, delivery, and songwriting on Doris drives that point home and the chunk-y yet sparse production, a rarity in the age of dominant 32nd-note 808 hi-hats, helps to keep his vocal as the centerpiece for the record.
    Listen To: "Chum"


    Destruction UnitDestruction Unit - Deep Trip
    Punk rock on the verge of collapse through layers of psychedelic noise, Arizona's DU are not only one of the best live bands in the US right now, but have a similarly interesting record. Don't miss Void either, it definitely has its moments.


    Listen To: "Bumpy Road"

    Swearin'Swearin - Surfing Strange
    Goddamnit, this record is a virus. It's like a superbug made up of the best bits of Weezer, Julianna Hatfield, Dinosaur Jr, Pavement, and a zillion 90s bands. Surfing Strange isn't reinventing the wheel here, but if you like any of the previously mentioned then you cannot listen to this album just once.

    Listen To: "Mermaid"


    WindhandWindhand - SOMA
    Dorothea's bluesy vocals and the Electric-Wizard-y doom got to me on their self-titled LP, and Windhand's SOMA is more of the same. No frills or fancy tricks… just good songwriting and memorable riffs.


    Listen To: "Orchard"


    OTHER GOOD 'UNS:
    Giuda - Let's Do It Again
    Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – Push the Sky Away

    Also, when Brandon Stosuy reveals his list... save us the hassle and keep it to yourself.

    B/c he's got better taste in music than you. You probably haven't listened to half of the stuff that's on there. Now go educate yourself!
