BEST OF 2013 – TRACKS

2014-01-06 17.06.23Ok, so here we go. This thing is finally up.

I could go on about my year and how it’s been hard man, but this kid here is finding himself a little resolutionary so I is gonna stop with that ‘ahhhh phd’s are hard and everything else has suffered as a result’ line. This here is pretty simple. Got streams of all the tracks as well as a bloody mixtape with all of them in it n shit.

The tracks below are definitely not in any kind of order, that would be too hard. But, they are the tunes that received a hell of a lot of plays by both myself and you guys. So that’s kinda cool.

Freakin’ enjoy it you guys.

BEST OF 2013 – ALBUMS [10-1]

2013-12-30 16.17.14

Yep. Here it is. Smack bang, ready for that little nostalgia comedown that is New Years Day.

As I alluded to in the 20-11 post on Monday, this year has been a fucking full on one. It compromised of a move interstate, and heading back to uni (although I’m not sure if you can really call doing a PhD going back to uni – prolly more like doing a full-time fucking job times about 3). Those weren’t the only things that happened of course, but they were probably the two things that impacted most on maamf for 2013.

It’s also been a year when the maamf sister site MISMATCH.TV started to come into it’s own. And although it’s definitely got a bit to go and I feel as though it’s not yet at the level I reckon it can get to, it’s taken up a bit of time as well. (However,  a massive thanks to my good mates/mismatchians/Melbourne music loving fanatics Lauren and Sabi for making mismatch what it is, and making that time enjoyable).

Anyway, these are the 10. The ones that I kept on returning to this year. It’s much more of a personal list this year, with a few albums either reminding me of Melbourne, and others welcoming me into the city of Sydney.

It also comes complete with a mixtape featuring two tracks from each album. Fuckin’ BUMPER. (more…)


BEST OF 2013 – ALBUMS [20-11]

20131228-234125.jpg

ok. So really, these aren’t in any particular order. But, they are all pretty bloody excellent. As with last year, I’ve done a mix of one track from each album.

I’ll go into it in a bit more detail when I put up my top 10, but this year has been pretty different. It’s been a year when the blog has gone all over the shop, stopped for a couple of weeks, and has been a continuous source of (good) distraction.

So, these albums are those distractions. Sure, there are 10 other albums that perhaps were more distracting, but these one’s did a pretty bloody good job all the same.

No particular order for these ones, but I have included a stream for each (I is generous like that).

OCTOBER ’13 MIX.

2013-11-05 17.18.08

So I dunno what a dog has to do with October. Or this mixtape. There’s not even a song that mentions a dog. But he’s a cute pooch (yeah, that’s right, I said a fluffy toy was cute, and I also called it a ‘he’. Well, actually, his name is Fang and he’s the raddest and, strangely, the quietest dog I think me or my housemates have ever had, but doge’s be kool homie. k? even stuffed ones).

But, anyway, the music? Yeah, well, October has been solid. Some excellent album and EP releases as well as some really excellent one-off singles. Too many (13 to be precise) to list off right now, but man, get this bloody thing inta ya.

MARCH ’13 MIX.

march13mixtape

Bit of a lacklustre month from this side in terms of posting, but man, I’m glad I get the opportunity to put all the ace songs for the month that I didn’t write about into this mixtape.

Some real summery vibes in for March – and on the most part up here it’s been pretty summery (win win).

Of course all these tracks are standouts, but if I can make a few mentions – the Camperdown & Out record is really really great. So is the Dick Diver album. And then of course anything from Lindsay Tuc is ace – that dude is your deep house wet dream. The new project from Tim Shiel (Faux Pas), Telling looks heaps promising too. And finally, man, that new Courtney Barnett track is absolutely golden – one of my faves of the year for sure.

Without further ado though, below are my fave for march.
