THE BEST RELEASES OF 2013: THE NEWSLETTER RANT

It's always a bit odd doing these year-end lists, because they seem a bit distorted. We deliberately disclude our own label releases (meaning we can't add Architect, AAIMON, The Exploding Boy, Ohm, Individual Totem, Rational Youth and many others we'd otherwise put on there), and we limit the list to releases that are actually available for sale in our shop. Keep it in the family! But also: keep it outside the family. It's a weird setup, but it's served us well over the years.
 
Here she be... with a few other top-2013 tidbits added for good fun.
