What’s up? My name’s Lauren and I have been lucky enough to write for DyngScene for three years. I don’t have anything fancy to say, but below are my top 10 favorite albums of 2013. I’ll try not to disappoint you as much as some other things may have this year.
10. DC Fallout – “Objector”
DC Fallout have been one of my favorite bands for a while now. Their new guitarist has added a really cool dimension to their sound and they have some killer lyrics. What a rad album.
9. The Flatliners – “Dead Language”
I love the Flatliners so much. They are easily one of my favorite bands around today. I listen to “Cavalcade” at least once a day, so my expectations for this album were extremely high. I was a bit disappointed with it because it didn’t quite live up to my expectations. I still like it a lot though.
8. Crusades – “Perhaps You Deliver This Judgment With Greater Fear Than I Receive It”
7. Broadcaster – “A Million Hours”
Great power-pop / indie-punk from Long Island. I can’t stop listening to this album.
6. The French Exit – “Guts & Black Stuff”
The French Exit‘s album reminds me of old school Weezer and Alkaline Trio. It’s great from start to finish.
5. Shai Hulud – “Reach Beyond The Sun”
Easily the best Shai Hulud release to date. 🙂
4. Protest the Hero – “Volition”
3. The Bronx – “Bronx IV”
2. Wringer – “Bullfighter”
Here’s an album that I hope isn’t overlooked. It is so good. I’m a little obsessed with it. An awesome friend of mine showed me this album earlier this year. They play the non-awful kind of pop-punk. Great harmonies and song-writing.
1. Off With Their Heads – “Home”
I don’t even have to explain this one do I? You haven’t been living under a rock, have you?
