The Fashionably Late Top 60 Of 2013: A Recap!

Well, my loves, I finally got there. The list was made. I hope you enjoyed my foray into the best that 2013 had to offer (to my ears, anyway). There was a lot of the expected (psych rock) and perhaps a smidge of the less-so expected (some popular records!). There were bands I was certain would be on the list all year, and bands that came out of nowhere to blow my house down. Amongst this list of 60, I hope you found something that you hadn't yet heard, something that warmed the cockles of your music-loving heart. For the sake of review purposes, below you'll find my list all the way from number 60 to number 1a.

And heck, let's do it all again next year.
