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…)


SEPTEMBER ’13 MIX.

Here it is. Smack bang, ready for your shortened week (if you were lucky enough to just have a long weekend that is. Soz if not).

As always, the tape runs all over your genres, from some of that lovely jangle pop to some grungy stuff to whatever on earth Cut Copy are doing nowadays. And that new edit from The Avalanches makes me hard.

Enjoi!

JUNE ’13 MIX.

june mixtape 13

And yep, here it finally is. A whole heap of stuff, from the crazed out sleazy funk of Sex On Toast to that blissful epicness of Big Scary and Ernest Ellis. Then there’s of course some big ol’ standouts – Kirin J Callinan‘s album is pretty good, so is that Jagwa Ma record. It’s been a pretty big month for excellent local music!

BIG SCARY.

So this is a freaking incredible tune. Like, really fucking good. Big Scary are back at it, producing some of the greatest, almost sombre music, that yep, I really dig. Phil Collins is taken off the bands 2nd album Not Art due out later on this year.
