Top 10 Albums of 2013: A Quick Review

alunageorge-13764061391. AlunaGeorge – Body Music: pair an angelic voice with lively, soulful beats and you get an album that’s not only interesting to listen to but addictive.

2. FKA twigs – EP2: not technically an album but needs to be on this list because of the beautiful production and just grand, sensual soundscapes that will take you to another world.

3. Szjerdene – Patchwork The EP: listen, her voice is something else, an instrument of its own. just beauty captured on audio.

4. HAIM – Days Are Gone: an essential coming-of-age album for 20-somethings. also, if you ever get the chance to see the Haim sisters perform live, Este’s bass face is something to see.

5. Beyoncé – Beyoncé: possibly her best album yet, honest songwriting and detailed production, no track is a throw-away.

6. Quadron – Avalanche: Coco O’s voice + Robin Hannibal’s production = perfection

7. M.I.A. – Matangi: pure energy.

8. Charli XCX – True Romance: an angsty pop record that’s easy to dance to and cry along with.

9. Yuna – Nocturnal: charming, calming, and colorful, yuna is like that wise older sister who always knows what to say.

10. Janelle Monáe – The Electric Lady: the best soundtrack to a non-existent movie (basically, Monáe’s Cindi Mayweather should be a real movie).
