My apologies dear readers for this six month late entry. A lot of things have happened in 2014 that have really forced me to put music on the back-burner. Having said that however I do think 2013 was one of the better years in the last five or so as far as music was concerned. So many fantastic records really made it difficult to order my list so whenever I got a bit of free time i painstakingly chopped and changed until I arrived at this seemingly end result. I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you agree/disagree with or give us a shout as to what records I may have missed last year. Cheers :)
#50 Akron/Family - Sub Verses
I've always been aware of this Portlandian three-piece experimental rock group but never really took notice until their fantastic previous album 'S/T II:The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT'. That record had this perfect balance of heavy psych and soft ethereal folk that permeated with a real spiritual force. …

You may have noticed how my participation on this site has gotten less and less over the years (although I have the feeling last.fm is on a hiatus altogether; correct me if I'm wrong). What you did not know, though, is that I never stopped collecting these fabulous Top 50 lists by the end of each year. Lists, guys! Everybody loves them!
Now you may think: Whoah, this dude had all the time of the world to research underground's finest tunes, so if that won't make for THE ultimate best-of list, what would?
Don't expect too much for a few reasons. First, I haven't invested too much time in music - especially new music - past 2009; secondly, those .txt files dwelled on my computer for years without a direct purpose of publishing; lastly, and this is something I emphasize before posting these lists, because each list represents a preserved look back on my personal year in music without much revision. …
