Rate the music of the year out of ten, based on the albums, singles, gigs, whatever that stand out for you that year. Non-musical nostalgia is welcome in the thread but that’s beside the point of the poll.
Everyone may nominate one album and one song from the year which will then be collated into side-polls on the final day of the thread (in one week) - please make it clear when you post a nomination for the poll, e.g
Nominate Album: Artist - Title
Nominate Song: Artist - Title
Otherwise feel free to just spam the thread with chat about as much music from the year as you like.
This week we cover the only decade in scope for this series we haven’t touched on yet, and our most recent year yet with 2013.
It was the year we learned just how much horse the British public were eating, Oscar Pistorius shot Reeva Steenkamp dead and was convicted of her murder, same sex marriage was legalised under UK law and a meteor struck Russia injuring over 1,000 people. It was the year we said goodbye to Nelson Mandela, Margaret Thatcher (honk), James Gandolfini and James Avery.
How good was the music?
(Poll open until Tuesday 1st Feb, album and song polls will go up Monday 31st based on your nominations)
This is one of those years which I thought had a amazing music at the time but there’s only a few albums I return to often Kanye, Waxahatchee, Chance the Rapper so maybe its not an alltimer. Looking forward to digging into the tracks again.
Nothing! I was just amusing myself until Discourse got in the way… It’s just the opening bars of Run The Jewels (the self-titled first song on their self-titled debut album from this year) which I was leading into but Discourse made me pause before hitting a third post in a row so the song comes after collectiverumbling got in with a post!
