My favorite 2013 music releases – aka the best of–.

I think I finally came to terms with the 2013 releases I wanted to listen to – yet I might add up to the list as I stumble upon other jewels in the following months. Note this is my first best of list in 8 years of music blogging!
A big thank you to fellow bloggers Urban Kill (punk rock), Easterndaze (Eastern Europe) and Just Outside (experimental), to which I owe several discoveries in this list.
