Top Five Albums of 2013! - Tyler Myalls

First up on the Top Five Albums of 2013 segment, we have Tyler Myalls! Tyler did an interview for me back in 2012, you can check it out here!

Here we go!

1. The Avett Brothers - Magpie and the Dandelion
The brothers return with another crazy solid outing with songs of love, loss and life. Bring a tissue.

2. The Fratellis - We Need Medicine
Jon Fratellis knows how to write some crafty pop/rock hooks and spin tongue twisting lyrics together like no other. Simple sounding songs, that are not so simple.

3. Gogol Bordello - Pura Vida Conspiracy
After listening to these guys I just want to pick up a guitar and start walking to nowhere to see what happens. Easily, the most entertaining live band on the planet. Go to a concert. Change your life. Turn on your gypsy auto pilot.

4. Kings of Leon - Mechanical Bull
Not the strongest outing from KOL, a little too much shine for my liking, but a handful of killer tracks that makes it worthwhile.

5. Okkervil River - The Silver Gymnasium
A concept album about growing up in 1986. Yeah, I can relate to that. I feel comfortable comparing Will Sheff's level of lyrical writing to that of Bob Dylan's.
