While talking with a friend of mine, I realized that much of my musical taste is stuck in 2011. Finding new music is overwhelming and I’ve pretty much given up on looking. Over the course of 2013, there were a few albums that I managed to stumble upon that I loved, namely:
“Muchaco” by Phosphorescent
“The Civil Wars” by The Civil Wars
“Trouble Will Find Me” by The National
“Reflektor” by Arcade Fire
“Modern Vampires of the City” by Vampire Weekend
And for some strange reason 2013 was the year I finally began to come to terms with Radiohead’s “The King of Limbs,” but mostly just this song:
As far as movies are concerned, I loved “The Way Way Back”
and “Blue Jasmine”
I also saw “Once Upon a Time in the West” for the first time. It’s streaming on Netflix right now, and it’s amazing. It’s the best western I’ve ever seen, and possibly one of the best genre movies period.
I’m more than open to suggestion for other things to consume.
