Seven 2013 releases that are way better than the new Vampire Weekend

I can think of a gazillion things I’d rather do than insult Vampire Weekend’s new record, so if you were hoping for a true album review I’m sorry to disappoint you. Instead, I’m going to cut to the quick and prevent you from a dated, soul-torturing listen by sharing some of the recent releases from this year that made it into my earholes and didn’t prompt me to have vicious visions of George Michael resurrected from the pop music tomb. There’s a decent variety, so hopefully you find something you like here, but if you’re looking in-depth music reviews, including Melvins, King Tuff, Daft Punk, My Bloody Valentine, Charles Bradley, Matt Pond and more, we’ve got you covered here.
