Favorite Records, 2013

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, etc. I hope you had a great 2013 and are content this evening — whatever that means for you. If you're not, get to work on that in the new year.

Below are my favorite records of the year, along with a selection from each. No rankings or affiliations are intended by the layout.

Peace and so many good vibes to you and yours.
