1) Rilo Kiley – rkives Yeah it's a b-sides and rarities. And the remix of "Dejalo" is the worst. Whatever fuck you, my favourite band in the whole wide world put out a new album this year. MY DEFUNCT HATE EACH OTHER NEVER MAKING MUSIC AGAIN FAVOURITE BAND EVER PUT OUT A NEW ALBUM THIS YEAR. Also, the two-punch of "Let Me Back In" and "Get You There" has been the very important musical soundtrack to a lot of very important happenings in a fucked up year. 2) Chvrches – Bones of What You Believe Seriously this year was so rich in EXACTLY the type of music I love, female vocalist electropop whatever. AKA exactly the opposite of what Souly likes.;) 3) Data Romance – Others Probably listened to this album more than anything else this year. Something about the fragile loveliness of the singer's voice is just incredible. Shout out to Pea and the Meow Playing thread for this one, fer realz. 4) Ms Mr – Secondhand Rapture The only reason this didn't get first is that I only got obsessed with it a month ago and I'm worried that like with most of my obsessions it might not stand the test of time. LOVE THIS FUCKING ALBUM THOUGH SO HARD. 5) Nine Inch Nails – Hesitation Marks You guys know. This guy knows.
6) Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City 7) Moderat – II 8) Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork 9) Tegan and Sara – Heartthrob 10) The Joy Formidable – Wolf’s Law 11) Disclosure – Settle 12) Civil Wars – Civil Wars 13) Man Man – On Oni Pond 14) !!! - Thr!!!er 15) Daft Punk – Random Access Memories 16) Frightened Rabbit – Pedestrian Verse 17) Arcade Fire - Reflektor 18) Boards of Canada – Tomorrow’s Harvest 19) Jon Hopkins – Immunity 20) Camera Obscura - Desire Lines
Holy shit that was hard. We are lucky to have been in the year twentythirteen y'all. Hey, can we do a best songs of 2013 thread too? A lot of my favourite shit of this year didn't make the "Album" cut and I'd like to give them credit where it's due. I guess I could just make it. NEVERMIND PRETEND YOU DIDN'T READ THAT!
For some reason, Ben Folds has never crossed my mind as a Sasquatch-esque artist. That being said, I absolutely love the man's music and would welcome him on the lineup. Those tour dates don't really indicate his appearance either way, but I guess it's something that he doesn't have anything scheduled either Sasquatch weekend.

That Yo La Tengo concert was better than you acted
I had too many bands on the list and had to do some moving around. They originally were on the top 20 but I had to factor in seeing bands multiple times and the excitement of seeing a band for the first time to cut down on numbers.
