Albums of the Year List by: Tomahawk

One thing Duane Denison definitely did not experience in 2013 was boredom. There was the (once again) reunion of noiserock-overlords The Jesus Lizard or the foundation of supergroup The Unsamble (featuring Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten and Silver Jews‚ Brian Kotzur) – but first and foremost there was ‚Oddfellows‚, the might-as-well-be comeback and possibly best work by the even superer group Tomahawk. And thanks to Denison’s varied choices for his records of the year and the HeavyPop Advent calendar, there’s no place for boredom here, either.

Boards of Canada - Tomorrows Harvest1. Boards of Canada – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00CISC2DA“ target=“_blank“ ]Tomorrow’s Harvest[/amazon_link]‘
Their brand of electronica somehow always manages to have some honest emotion to it, which is rare in the genre, right?

Godspeed You! Black Emperor – ‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!2. Godspeed You! Black Emperor – ‚[amazon_link id=“B009DQQF7Y“ target=“_blank“ ]’allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend![/amazon_link]‘
I don’t know what their name really is any more (God’s pee?) but I do know that I like the way they build things up.

Godflesh - Hymns3. Godflesh – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00ADZCDKC“ target=“_blank“ ]Hymns [Remastered][/amazon_link]‘
Another „God“ band? What does it mean? Nothing. I just think these fellas do the grind thing better than anyone else, so if you want that vibe you got it here.

4. David Bowie - The Next Day David Bowie – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00AYZLBN6″ target=“_blank“ ]The Next Day[/amazon_link]‘
His last album? Some great tunes here, interesting lyrics, cool guitars, etc….old guys rule!

The Bryan Ferry Orchestra - The Jazz Age5. Bryan Ferry Orchestra – ‚[amazon_link id=“B009NRO5XE“ target=“_blank“ ]The Jazz Age[/amazon_link]‘
I don’t know if this came out in 2013 or not, I only got it a few months back. Classic Roxy tunes done 20’s style, no vocals. Unique and enjoyable.
