Best Music of 2013

Wow, how I never give my blog any love these days! And here I am making my annual "Best Of" post for 2013 this late. One barely needs to scroll down to see last year's on the same screen (say what!). Granted, I did a few private gigs last year that I couldn't share on my blog, but's been a little quiet here.

Anyhow, I couldn't keep putting this off. This time around I decided to open up my selection to EPs in addition to full-length albums. So there's three favorite EPs of mine from 2013 on here. Looking forward to seeing 5 of these artists + all the other great talent at Coachella 2014 (Weekend 1) in a few months.

In no particular order, I present to you my Best of 2013 music releases followed by song selections to check out:
