Top Ten Albums of 2013

Vampire Weekend! Kurt Vile! Parquet Courts! Janelle Monae! More!

My annotated list of the Top Ten albums of 2013, running alphabetically from Bombino to Kanye West, is in Sunday's Inquirer A & E section. You can find that here and punch in access code J85T if you're not (yet) a subscriber.

Below, check out 10 videos, one for each of the selections. Make sure you make it down to Kurt Vile's "Wakin' On A Pretty Day" for a time lapse video of the making of the  "Wakin On A Pretty Day" mural near I-95 by Steve "ESPO" Powers that is the Wakin On A Pretty Daze album cover.  The animated William Onyeabor clip is also quite cool.
