Happy New Year. I nearly didn't do this because it's obviously not that important but if you're curious, it's here. This isn't really a "Best Albums of 2013" list as I didn't hear a whole lot of the albums that everybody is going crazy over - this is just a list of albums/EPs that I really really enjoyed this year. If you missed any of them then I recommend them, if you didn't miss any of them then maybe we should hang out? A/S/L?
