Top 10 Albums of 2013
I know I'm not around anymore, but I feel like this should be documented somewhere.

Haven't had anywhere near enough time to spend listening to music as I'd like, I've barely listened to a lot of stuff I picked up this year, but the #1 album of the year for me is easily:

Chelsea Wolfe's "Pain Is Beauty". It's the easiest decision since the last time PJ Harvey released an album. :)

The rest of my top 10, in no particular order:

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Push The Sky Away
Skinny Puppy - Weapon
Ben Frost - Black Marrow
Matt Elliot - Only Myocardial Infarction Can Break Your Heart
Thought Forms - Ghost Mountain
Hans Zimmer - Man Of Steel Soundtrack
Download - LingAM
Ludovico Einaudi - In A Time Lapse
Mogwai - Les Revenants

Honorable mention:

Zola Jesus - Versions
Giles Corey - Hinterkaifeck
Autechre - Exai
Russian Circles - Memorial
Pelican - Forever Becoming
Tim Hecker - Virgins
Jesu - Every Day I Get Closer To The Light From Which I Came
Rachel Grimes - Compound Leaves
Lustmord - The Word As Power

I guess I got through more than I had thought. Still lots of shit I didn't even get to listen to yet.

I just lurk on LJ myself these days. randompictures has some quality stuff from time to time (the drama is worth a chuckle or two just the same and about as often), and some of my German friends are still active, otherwise I haven't posted in, sheesh, 2 years looks like, and even then looking at my last post for reference, seems I only did so because you did another one of these "still here, kinda" updates.

Picked up Mogwai "Happy Songs for Happy People" a little while ago, first listen today, bueno. Haven't heard the new SP, but wana try and make one of their shows in SF. And plenty of unheard/unread/unwatched media over here too. Might start on Stiff soon though.
