Apologies – I’ve been a little late posting my Best Albums Of 2013 list. In mitigation, at least I managed to post my Best Films Of 2013 last week, which you can read here.

You can click on the links to find personal Best Albums Of 2013 lists from Allan, John and Tom.

Meanwhile, you can also find Uncut‘s Best Albums Of 2013 here, which includes links to the original reviews.

I’d also like to reiterate Allan and Tom’s comments that votes were cast a long time before the recent allegations against Roy Harper came to light. I’m not sure how my vote would have been affected if the charges against Harper had been made public earlier, all the same Man & Myth was the new album I played most in 2013.

Anyway, on behalf of us all up here: have a great Christmas and New Year and we’ll see you in 2014. We’ll be posting archive features and reviews during the break, so do keep dropping by from time to time.

Cheers.

Yasmin Williams: “I wanted to imagine things getting better”

Released in January, Yasmin Williams’ mesmerising album Urban Driftwood respected the old traditions of folk music but simultaneously made fresh currency out of them. Stephen Deusner meets Williams in Nashville to map the course of her incredible year since – and her plans for 2022. “I’m pretty optimistic about the future,” she says. “At least, way more than I was a year ago…”
