We Listen For You Below you will find my 25 favorite hip hop releases of 2013. I say releases because while I'll always been an album guy, when an EP or mixtape is good enough to be ranked among the albums I'm going to rank it appropriately. I'm not strictly a hip hop head (albums from Jason Isbell, Kurt Vile, and White Denim would rank in my top 10 overall), but I decided to focus on hip hop in order to give less heralded releases...

By Eric SteuerPage 1 of 2 next » Answer the following: You heard Beck's last album, Guero, (a) online as an unfinished mix that was leaked in late 2004; (b) as the official 2005 Interscope CD release, which contained most of the tracks on the leaked version plus a few new songs; (c) as the deluxe CD/DVD edition, complete with seven bonus tracks, a surround sound mix, and interactive video art to accompany every song; (d) in one of the many unauthorized fan mashups floating around the Net; (e) not as Guero at all, but as Guerolito, a commercially released companion piece featuring remixes by Diplo, Adrock, and Boards of Canada.

Hot off the presses 60s folk rock performed with skill and accuracy, and actually sounding as if it were recorded in 1965, perhaps The Love Dimension really were born in the wrong decade Jowls have found a sonic niche which, if crafted carefully, will allow them to become one of the most respected and powerful punk/hardcore bands of this era.
