Firstly, let's get a necessary correction out of the way. When you are as forward-thinking as Triangulator is it is easy to believe that you are actually living in the future. But, despite Triangulator's initial claim that this is the Best of 2013, it is, of course the Best of 2012.
And what a golden bounty of musical delights we had to choose from this year, once again! Inevitably, in the epic journey that is the 'Best of' selection process, some worthy contenders sadly had to be dismissed (but, of course, not without a respectful mention). We omitted music from Quantic & Alice Russell, Belleruche, Ondatrópica, KonKoma, Antibalas, Fort Romeau, Resonators, Diiv, Peaking Lights, Chromatics, Crystal Castles, Chairlift, Sean P, Twin Shadow, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, S.P.Y., Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Daphni, El-P, Mumford & Sons, JJ Doom and Hidden Orchestra amongst others... but that's just testament to the standard of what stayed in the selection.
