I’ve heard a LOT of great music this year, and seen a LOT of really good bands. After seeing Swervedriver play Raise this week at the Zoo, I started thinking about all of the great music I’ve been lucky enough to witness over the last 9 months and decided to write a list (because everybody loves lists, right?) of the best music I’ve heard so far. Here are my picks:
Best New Record: Adalita – All Day Venus
Baby Animals – This Is Not The End
Steve Kilbey And Martin Kennedy – You Are Everything
Butcher Birds – Butcher Birds EP
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – Push The Sky Away
Best live act: You Am I
My Bloody Valentine
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds
Best Brisbane band: Hits
We All Want To
Best Brisbane Venue: The Zoo
90’s Nostalgia Central: Soundwave 2013 – The Offspring / Blink 182 / Garbage / Kyuss / Metallica / etc.
Gone but not forgotten: Chrissy Amphlett, may your music and your memory live forever.
