“And One List To End Them All” The pick of 2013….

22 Dec


Can there such a thing as too much music? Possibly. All I know if that this year, I bought more music that I have ever done before, and I barely scratched the surface of what was going on in the outside world. I don’t even think you can properly gauge a real consensus just by lists alone. But hey this is what the public wants, then this is what they will get.

Here is a selection of what tickled my fancy in 2013. Will likely realise I’ve forgotten a whole pile of extra records once this is posted….
