For those that are interested, here are my picks for the best albums of 2013 that I was lucky enough to have come across this year. I’m sure there are much more out there but I think I’ll keep the list down to an even 16. Where possible, I’ve included links to Amazon or direct to artist’s websites, to hear samples and purchase either the hard formats or the downloads.

Support the artist. Support the music. Support our culture. Keep the music alive. Keep the interest going. Keep the faith (strangely).
