Cass McCombs, Big Wheel and Others
Daft Punk, Random Access Memories
Danny Brown, Old
Earl Sweatshirt, Doris
Sonny and the Susets, Antenna to the Afterworld
The Julie Ruin, Run Fast
Deerhunter, Monomania, but only because my expectations were still so high. An uneven album that wears well.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Mosquito. The less said about this the better.
Jay-Z, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Even for a Samsung commercial, this album sucked.
MGMT, MGMT. Even as big of a Congratulations defender as me couldn’t defend this. Dreadful.
Philly’s best non-Kurt Vile albums, in rough order:
Little Big League, These Are Good People
Man Man, On Oni Pond
Pissed Jeans, Honey
Bleeding Rainbow, Yeah Right
Dr. Dog, B-Room
Ex-communicated from Philadelphia, with thanks for one super enjoyable album followed by exponentionally more terrible ones: Free Energy

10Robin Thicke, “Blurred Lines”It is what it is. I wish I could say it wasn’t.
09Drake, “Hold On, We’re Going Home”Fine. You win this round, Drake. Your booby prize? Getting quoted by #CoolTeach.
08Danny Brown, “Kush Koma”Oh my melting ears.
07Earl Sweatshirt, “Chum”From the album that to my surprise struck me closest to the bone. Brutal introspection from the shock jock nonsense of Odd Future threw me for a very delighted, painful curve.
06Daft Punk, “Doin’ It Right”Around
05Daft Punk, “Instant Crush”The
04Deerhunter, “Pensacola”If the rest of the songs on Monomania had been half as good as this, it’d’ve been a monster.
03Mystikal, “Hit Me”Sure, technically this song came out in mid-December 2012. But if you’re going to get technical with a song that cribs so freely and brilliantly from James Brown, then you and I aren’t bound to be friends anyway.
02Courtney Barnett, “Avant Gardener”I can’t recommend this shimmering motorik lazy day song highly enough.
01Daft Punk, “Get Lucky”World.
