The Well-Played List: Best of 2013 Edition, Part 2

The year-end wrap-up continues; Spotify playlist included.

Posted by on Fri, Dec 13, 2013 at 6:00 AM

For the year's remaining editions of The Well-Played List, music tastemakers participating in the ongoing listening series (the CL Music Team and select staffers along with local music promoters, record store and venue owners, music fans and scenesters, DJs, musicians, and a radio personality or two) will be reflecting on our favorite albums of the year — the Best of 2013. Since we're off on consecutive Wednesdays (for Christmas and New Year's), and make up such a large group with varying tastes, I'll be breaking our lists up into four parts, running two this week (Part 1 ran on Wednesday, the second today), and the last two will be posted next week. Hopefully, all four will give you something to fill your ears while you enjoy your holiday breaks... and as always, a Spotify Playlist will be included at the end of each post, for your listening pleasure.

Check out past editions of The Well-Played List here. And on that note, what are your favorite albums of 2013? Tell us in the comments…
