100 best albums of 2013 countdown: 100-91

Published on December 26th, 2013 | Jonny Abrams

Get this, right: it’s Rocksucker’s 100 best albums of 2013 countdown Christmas special bonanza!

You see, we listened to one heckuva lot of albums this year and conferred varying degrees of merit, in quail form, upon them based on our own spurious criteria.

Now we bring you our favourite hundred of them, counted down in order arbitrarily/for fun. We start, as tradition dictates, with positions 100 to 91…

100. Danny Brown – Old

What we said…

There’s not much to fault here; “Wonderbread” is a frankly ridiculous degree of fun, “Gremlins” has a chilling urgency about it, while “Lonely” is engulfed in the kind of dreamy swirl of ‘kush’ smoke that it’d have been good to hear infiltrate more of the album.

99. M.I.A. – Matangi

What we said…

Mad as a box of frogs inside another box of frogs stuck up a tree made of discarded brush parts, and for the most part really quite inspiring.

98. múm – Smilewound

What we said…

Hard to talk about in non-hackneyed terms – glitchy, glacial electronics, that sort of thing – but that doesn’t make it any less beautiful.

97. Mudhoney – Vanishing Point

What we said…

Big, sleazy riffs, big clattering rhythm section, Mark Arm’s acerbic speak-singing and wise-guy rocker routine: fortunately, Mudhoney’s strengths still sound awesome after all these years.

96. Füxa – Dirty D

What we said…

Richly nourishing… Host to lush convergences of shimmering synth pads and gloopy loops, the latter of which is not a breakfast cereal as far as we know.

95. Melt Yourself Down – Melt Yourself Down

What we said…

Hyperactive jazz lunacy with a whacking great dirty rhythm section slipped underneath it to tumultuously clattering effect… A refreshingly riotous party record.

94. Boards of Canada – Tomorrow’s Harvest

What we said…

Old elements are present, but Boards of Canada’s snow globe of sound has been given a good shake.

93. The Sudden Death of Stars – Getting Up, Going Down

What we said…

These French psychedelics make a lovely stoned mess on their debut album in a way that both reflects the beauty of the area it was made in, Brittany, and suggests even lovelier loveliness to come.

92. King Krule – 6 Feet Beneath the Moon

What we said…

King Krule’s slurring, growly gift of a voice seems to channel Randy Newman, Tom Waits and Captain Beefheart all at the same time, while the meandering songwriting and nocturnally jazzy atmosphere prove equally transfixing.

91. Neko Case – The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You

What we said…

All the melodic and lyrical savvy we’ve come to associate with Case, through her solo work and with The New Pornographers, is present and correct.
