My 5 favourite albums from 2013

5) Boards of Canada – Tomorrow’s Harvest

In a year of comebacks, the year’s most thrilling comeback album was the Scottish duo’s bruised, nerve-fried first album in 8 years.

4) Mogwai – Les Revenants OST

Mogwai’s soundtrack to acclaimed French series Les Revenants proved one of 2013’s more rewarding albums and exposed them to a TV audience.

3) Mark Kozelek & Desertshore

In a strong year for Kozelek, his least imaginatively titled collection for some time harked back to some of his earlier material with Sun Kil Moon & even Red House Painters.

2) Mark Lanegan & Duke Garwood – Black Pudding

This woozy combination proved hit and miss live but delivered a great album.

1) Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds – Push The Sky Away

The album that just kept giving, on repeated listened, through 2013, kept revealing hidden details.
