Best Records and EPs of the year 2013... so far

It's June, and like we did on previous years, it's time to take a look to what the year has offered so far in terms of music. Traditionally, I just make a list of the best songs. That will be ready within the next days, but for 2013 I have thought to "make it bigger" and also include a small list* with my favourite records and EPs of the year so far (all 2013' releases already available). Listed in alphabetical order (the proper best-of list will come at the end of the year). Just trying to recognize a bunch of great works!

  1. Lots of homework for me in here. I've been enjoying the National, Guards, and Ex Cops, but haven't explored enough of the rest. Thanks for the post!

  2. I totally agree on Dick Diver, Veronica Falls, Souvenir Stand, Northern Spies, and Silver Screen. There's a lot there I haven't heard though, so it sounds like I've got a lot of catching up to do.
