The end of the year is here. Pretty much everything that’s going to be released is now out, and barring any late breaking oh-my-God-is-that-actually-happening style news stories, 2013 is done and dusted. And with the convenient if entirely arbitrary transition from one year to the next a mere 48 hours away, we’re dedicating the final Sunday Spotify Slaylist of 2013 to the records that we loved the most this year.

What is up with releasing a 74-minute debut album? On what planet does a new band have the kind of fanbase willing to dedicate well over an hour of their lives to one piece of music? It’s 2013 and people buy individual tracks; they stream one song online and then don’t even bother illegally downloading the rest of the album.
