      I've only bought one new LP this year, so here's my number one! -White Fence ‎– Cyclops Reap, only had it on a couple of times, need to revisit if I'm honest, as the I only thing I know well off it is the single 'Pink Gorilla'.

        Very little new stuff aquired in 2013. The standout for me was: Webster Wraight Ensemble - No Lucky Days. Big band jazz with a soul infused lushness at it's heart. Lovely.

          My non-exhaustive, strictly personal, in no real order after Foxygen top 5 of 2013 is:

          FOXYGEN: We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Love & Magic
          MATT BERRY: Kill The Wolf
          BUCOLICA: The House In The Woods
          DOLLY DOLLY: Antimacassar

          The record I have listened to most is The Velvet Underground's White Light, White Heat, which I have listened to at least once every day since August 23rd. This started as a bit of fun and an attempt to reconnect with my teenage self, and has now become an extraordinary pleasure. I do worry sometimes that I may have had something to do with Lou Reed's death.

                    On a completely different slant I think Silence Yourself by Savages & Slow Focus by Fuck Buttons were both tremendous albums this year.
                    I'm trying to find something you don't like...

                      Of late, I have just started enjoying the new(ish) Earthless LP 'From The Ages' and its relentless (but not mindless) psychedelic riffing - five tracks, just over one hours worth of altered consciousness.

                        Can't believe I forgot to mention MBV in my earlier post.

                          Crikey, a fellow Earthless fan! Don't tell me you like Purling Hiss too?

                              Just going back through my iTunes to see if I can list some of my favourite hip hop mixtapes of the last year. I didn't listen to quite as much hip hop as the year before but all these got muliple reloads.

                              Starlito - Cold Turkey (I really need to download Fried Turkey, like now)
                              Migos - YRN (the children of Future and Gucci Mane let rip with ridiculous hooks, trap sounds and bird impressions)
                              Tree - Sunday School 2 (Gravel voiced dude from Chicago kills it)
                              Gucci Mane - Lean (the best of a trilogy from the hardest working man in Atlanta)
                              Gunplay - Acquitted (I actually didn't listen to this half as much as 601 & Snort but I just wanted to get some Gunplay in my list)
                              Ka - Knights Gambit (see above)
