Best of 2013: Music

2013 was a really good year for music! Most of my favorite modern artists released new CDs this year. Plus I discovered some new favorites!

In no particular order:

-She and Him: Volume 3. I don't do a lot of "pop," but wow. I love She & Him and their cheerful 60s-inspired pop. :)

-Michael Buble: To Be Loved. I used to think, why listen to some new guy singing the classics when you can just listen to the classics? And I honestly still don't listen to Michael Buble too much, but sometimes it's nice to hear some modern energy in an old song. :) Plus, usually his "original" songs are pretty good.

-Handsome and Gretyl. My favorite new discovery of the year! I love their album Miles and Miles.

-Lauren Shera: Gold and Rust. This album is so good. (She was another NoiseTrade discovery, like Handsome and Gretyl.)

-The Civil Wars. I hope this duo will overcome their differences and keep making new music, because they are amazing.

-Jars of Clay: Inland. I've loved Jars of Clay for years, but they had sort of dropped off my radar until their new release this year. It's different from their past music, but so, so good.

-The Avett Brothers: Magpie and the Dandelion. My favorite group did it again! With an album out last year, I definitely wasn't expecting another new release this year, but it was a pleasant surprise. They're just as awesome as ever. :)

What was your favorite music of the year, whether new releases or just new discoveries?
