Top 10 Albums I Had on Repeat in 2013

2013 was a fantastic year for music which made it hard for me to only chose my top 10. I honestly changed my list around a few times because I couldn’t get it down to just 10 albums. Nevertheless, here’s my list of the Top 10 Albums I Had on Repeat in 2013 in no particular order. *Honorable Mention: Real Friends - Put Yourself Back Together EP Since it’s only an EP and not an album it couldn’t be on the list,...

My Obscure, (Mostly British) Top 10 of 2013 – by Carolyn Lederach

GUEST POST: CAROLYN LEDERACH Over the years, some of my favorite music has come out of the UK.  By this list, you can tell was another great year of music out of the UK, enough so that it took up the majority of my ‘Best of’ List.  Arctic Monkeys released one of their best albums since Favourite Worst Nightmare and thus returned my faith in them being one of my favorite bands.  I’ve been following Bastille for about...

10 Songs I Couldn’t Stop Listening To This Year

How great was that Top Ten Most Overplayed Songs in 2013 post? I didn’t even have to play the music videos to be able to sing the whole entire song and then quickly hate myself. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of a list as creative as that so I thought I’d take the more personal approach. Maybe someone will find a new artist or song they like through my list. I decided to do the ten songs I couldn’t stop...

[INSIDE SCOOP] NGHBRS Talk 2014 and What 2013 Has Given Them

As the year in winding down, from what I observe NGHBRS had an amazing year. From releasing their debut LP, Twenty One Rooms, to playing CMJ 2013 Music Marathon and premiering their innovative Instagram music video for “Hold Up Girl.” There’s no doubt NGHBRS will take 2014 by storm. It all started when one of the many snowstorms we’ve already been blessed with had stopped me from driving down to Philly to see...
