Griffin it! My Picks of 2013.

Ah! Too much music, not enough time!

All-too-often people we hear  lament that “there’s no decent music these days”.  A crazy notion on many levels (no good music? What? Anywhere?), but particularly untrue of this day and age.

We have at our disposal more good music than ever before. Sure, you have to sort through the dross to find the gems, but we have music, good music, at are fingertips. Amateur artists can make their works available to the world, too, and that’s a great thing.

And, so, when it comes to selecting my picks for albums of the year, it’s a (pleasingly) difficult task. Before we get cracking, I’d like to say that I’ve omitted so many great works, and that my list doesn’t even scratch the surface.

That said, here they are! Enjoy!

    Nice picks Griffin. Fat Freddy’s has been my go to chill music for a while now- especially when I’ve just accidentally heard a Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber song!
