Oklahoma Lefty’s Top Albums of 2013

2013 was another great year for music. Sure most of the good stuff was completely absent from the airwaves (which is a crime) but for those willing to look, great things were to be found. From punk to pop, from rock to folk, and everything in-between, 2013 showed us once again that not all of the good music is in the past.

Like in 2012, I was fortunate to get to work with a lot of great artists, labels, and PR folks. My life got a little whacky in 2013 though with changing jobs and being unemployed for a couple of months, so I did get behind on things and never really completely caught back up. Because of that, I’m sure that there are records that I have missed that would have made this list. I’m still working through my pile of records to review so hopefully at some point I’ll be caught up.
