2013 non-reggae new release of the year roundup

Postby BMC » Mon Dec 23, 2013 2:54 pm

What newly released non-reggae have you been enjoying this year?

Easily the best new non-reggae thing I’ve heard this year was a single on Daptone:

The Impressions - Rhythm! / Star Bright (Daptone 45)

Other albums I’ve highly enjoyed this year:

Gregory Porter - Liquid Spirit
Charles Bradley - Victim of Love
The James Hunter Six - Minute by Minute
José James - No Beginning No End
Run The Jewels - El-P & Killer Mike = Run The Jewels
Daft Punk - Random Access Memories

I;ve heard of the Charles Bradley and Gregory Porter albums, but didnt check them out.

The only thing I remember from 2013 is Daft Punk's album. Some of it is truly excellent, a couple of songs are a bit self indulgent (the Gorgio Moroder interview, come on!) and could be removed without hurting the overall package.

I liked A$AP Rocky's album a lot, but I dont remember if it is from 2013 or 2012.

When i look at what I bought this year, it is mostly reissues of 70's and early 80's stuff: dub, boogie funk, I must be getting old...

I second Charles Bradley, pretty good documentary on him called Soul Of America gives the details about him and if you need anymore proof than this track here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bcqb7kzekoc then you just can't dig it maaan!

Don't really check current music but this group called Wilde Belle was recommended to me by a plumber but I'm not sure if it's this year or last...I like this tune here...bit poppy so if that's a problem don't bother but I like the groove http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLKOmXm6W3s

Also been meaning to check a group called Allah-Las, self titled album...garage business but samples sounded alright...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiJYecS0vU0

I don't know if reissues count but Light In The Attic released Roky Erickson's The Evil One...Killer! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7aLXehSXAo

This didn't come out this year but if you like rock n' roll you might do well to check it out, it's called Holy Mackerel! Pretenders to Little Richard's Throne here's a cut http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8UBXrGM_B0

Clips and samples help if you can provide them fellas otherwise they're just names of bands or records.

The expanded version of Grizzly Bear's "Shields" album was probably my favourite thing this year. Here's the opening track "Sleeping Ute" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hk3tURx8a2Q plus the Nicholas Jaar remix http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sr5xAugesE0

I also enjoyed the Blow Monkeys' "Feels Like A New Morning" album - here's "Oh My" from it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAVHPwBG_gY

And I 'discovered' Lonnie Holley yesterday - pretty fine stuff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixiSM0LC0ro

I definately second that one! Brilliant album!
There have been many fantastic musical experiences for me this year, even though the majority of the music i´ve bought this year has been reissues. Still i really need to recomment the album Avalance by Quadron - especially due to vocals!

Merry christmas!

without any doubt, imo, Colleen's "The Weighing Of The Heart" (Second Language), but also Idassane Wallet Mohamed's "Issawat" (Mississippi/Sahel Sounds).
