Former SelvesMost of the albums listed on my 2013 list were released by artists/labels with whom I have a personal relationship. This wasn’t something I was consciously aware of as I assembled my list, but it makes sense. Music can be a reflection of one’s dreams, ideas, personality and/or self, so it’s understandable that lovely people would produce/release lovely sounds. Still, it was difficult to choose the albums listed below because a lot of amazing sounds were produced this past year. I’m sure I forgot to list a few albums that really touched me, but I will continue listening.  Top 13 albums released in 2013Aloonaluna - A House Made of Cloud and Bone (Digitalis Limited)Black Thread - Pinkfire (Turmeric Magnitudes)Brahms - shimmer//suffocate (Bridgetown Records)Floating Gardens - Generalife - (Constellation Tatsu)Günter Schlienz / Kyle Landstra / N.
