Bizarro50 2013

The Year Of The Glad

Untitled - Copy (2)

A selection of this year’s Bizarro musical favourites – not all necessarily ‘released in 2013’, but at the very least, music effecting a profound influence on how decisions, both personal and professional, were undertaken over the last 365 days – all based on various criteria, including:

*Sustained and pleasurable complementation for pasta preparation, dishwashing and other kitchen-related processes.

*Music least likely to embarrass if caught dancing by oneself late at night in the dark

*Minimum road rage influence.

*Many wasted hours watching earnest television dramas staffed by exceptionally hip and happening music supervisors

*air guitaribility

*Various other moments of extreme dismay and/or bliss.

spooky psych-proggers add a little extra electronica elements into their already weird and wonderful epic soundscaping. Closest relative to the kind of music I have been attempting in the last year or so.

their hybrid of post rock, electronica, a little bit of funk and other strange noodlings is, if I have to choose, my top band and album of 2013.
