Following an incredible summer that saw ON AN ON make their debuts at major music festivals including Bonnaroo and Governors Ball, the Minneapolis/Chicago trio will resume their assault on North America’s roadways with a September tour as they continue to support their breakout debut album Give In (one of my favorite albums of 2013…so far), released earlier this year on Roll Call Records.

These are simply in alphabetical order. It’s hard enough to rank my top 10, i don’t want to do it more than once a year. Enjoy all of these on Spotify, which i’ll continue to update throughout the rest of 2013. And with some highly anticipated releases still on the horizon, including new albums from Porcelain Raft, Smith Westerns, and Elton John, i’m sure this list will evolve.
But enough babbling, enjoy my favorite albums of 2013 (so far) and please check back in December to see which (if any) make the cut for my top 10 of the year.
A few of my favorite new releases this week, including the latest from Ducktails, Local Natives, On An On, and Tegan and Sara. As always, be sure to visit Largehearted Boy for the rest of the week’s new music.
