Merry Christmas Eve! I hope you’re enjoying this holiday season with loved ones.
We’re almost at my top albums of 2016 post, and I promise we’ll get there. BUT we’ve only reached halfway for my lists of years past. We’ve gone through 2010, 2011, 2012. Now, let me show you 2013. This is the year I stepped up my A/V game. Enjoy.

9. Kodaline – In a Perfect World
8. Lorde – Pure Heroine
7. Gungor – I Am Mountain
6. Phoenix – Bankrupt!
