Free Time
We’re over halfway into 2013 and already dozens of releases have us captivated, surprised, and completely floored. Here’s our favorite albums and EPs of the year so far, in no particular order. Though we may not have as much time as we’d like to write about these records throughout the year, each release in this list has its own purpose, whether it provides a soundtrack to those laid-back summer afternoons or the bleakest, most introspective of moments.
