2013 has been a very strange year for me as I drifted away even more from any type of music trends, and haven’t had much time to focus on my music as well. It was a time to become focused on my work, on my new life in Sweden, and suddenly a year went by, a great year I should say.
So instead, I focused a lot on new releases from musician I am fond of, and particularly in music that highlights the poetry of everyday life. Without too many illusions of grandeur, or theatrical manifestations, without much fuss, music that is beautiful in its imperfections, or imperfect in its clearness.
Without much ado, here are the ten releases I enjoyed most in 2013 (in no particular order):
Cory Allen - The Great Order
Évo Lüthi with Monolyth and Cobalt
Field Rotation - Fatalist: The Repetition of History
Jayne Amara Ross, Frédéric D. Oberland and Gaspar Claus - The Freemartin Calf
My Home, Sinking - My Home, Sinking
Orla Wren - Book Of The Folded Forest
Porya Hatami & Lee Anthony Norris - Every Day Feels Like A New Drug
Rafael Anton Irisarri - The Unintentional Sea
Seaworthy + Taylor Deupree - Wood, Winter, Hollow
Talvihorros - Eaten Alive
