PoOPlists 2013



Jamie Hosley Poop 2013

I skipped 2012 for no good reason but I’m back for 2013. Moving to an all subscription based music collection has resulted in a ton of music to listen to, probably too much in actuality but here we go with a list of those albums that I listened to most repeatedly over the last year. I’m going to keep my descriptions short because really music is a personal thing and one’s liking or disliking of something is based on their…


John Lefsky Poop 2013

Like almost every other year there is so much good music I don’t have the time, or cash, to get it all. Most of my old favorites didn’t let me down. Most of the new favorites sound like old favorites. How many are going to break barriers and change music? I’m guessing none. I’m just glad that I still like it loud. My biggest musical disappointment was the closing of my favorite music venue, Maxwell’s. 95% of the time I…


Dan Wilmer Poop 2013

“I hate music. What is it worth?Can’t bring anyone back to this earth.But fill in the space between all the notes,And I’ve got nothing else so I guess here we go.” – “Me and You and Jackie Mittoo,” Superchunk This list goes to eleven:    Buy New or Used via Amazon Jason Isbell – Southeastern. Just a perfect alt country album.    Buy New or Used via Amazon Kurt Vile – Wakin’ on a Pretty Daze. Love him and he’s just getting…


Irv Rosen Poop 2013

What I listened to in 2013 So little music, so much time. Listening less. And less. As part of my slide to senility, not much new seems to speak to me at all. So this list is mostly new efforts by older artists. I guess this is the way it is meant to be. Why is it that invariably (or almost so), the current releases of “legacy” artists while good, rarely seem to approach the quality (or my perception of…


Mike Miller Poop 2013

POOP ’13 (the kaopectate version)    Buy New or Used via Amazon Howe Gelb – The Coincidentalist    Buy New or Used via Amazon Iron & Wine – Ghost on Ghost and… just about anything else Howe Gelb put out, most of The Sadies latest, The Tindersticks, the killer title track on Kurt Vile’s release, some Alice Russell, unearthed gems from the nether world … Sanford Clark, Lee Hazlewood Industries, etc. “Saunders Ferry Lane” by Sammi Smith, “Potters Field” by Alice Swoboda…


John Stewart Poop 2013

To be quite (honest) with you I am really losing it as far what is current. Maybe I just don’t give a crap anymore. It’s not that I don’t hate new music. I mean if I hear something I really like? I will stand up and take notice of it. I have been accused of many things such as being a rockist. But then again would a rockist name an album and single of the year by a French Technopop…


Tom Whalen Poop 2013

Top Ten    Buy New or Used via Amazon 1. Burial – Rival Dealer (Hyperdub) Burial made his anti-bullying, transgender-empathetic message clear in his text to the BBC and in this EP’s spoken word coda, but on Rival Dealer the theme of identity flux is also a deep-seeded musical element. “Do you know who I am?” wonders one sample; “You know my fuckin’ style!” taunts another (Raekwon, I believe). We sure thought we knew, but on “Hiders” and “Come Down to…
