My top 5 of 2013:
1. Paramore - S/T
2. Against Me! - True Trans 7”
3. Superchunk - I Hate Music
4. Obits - Bed & Bugs
5. Their / They’re / There - S/T EP

Paramore’s S/T was my favorite record of the year and my favorite they have ever done. I definitely don’t put people in my list just because I shoot their photos, I just shoot photos of the bands I love. To be honest, if nothing but that record came out in 2013 I would have been fine with just it.

Honorable Mentions:
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - The Heist
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis get honorable mention because even though it came out in 2012, I did not hear it until this year and it is incredible.

The Postal Service - Give Up 10th Anniversary Deluxe
Postal Service gets honorable mention because even though I had most of the b-sides/rarities already “Turn Around” & “A Tattered Line Of String” were new and amazing.
