Second Quarter Report 2013
Do you think 2013 had a slow start in music? We're not certain that anyone did, but April-June 2013 made the first 3 months of the year look sluggish in comparison. Albums were popping up pretty much everywhere, with everyone from Boards of Canada to Kanye West (he's pretty underground; you may not have heard of him) making a comeback.
We have 10 of our favourites in here, which all go well with these if you're looking to find out what's really been floating our boat this year. We're also pointing out more free stuff (because who doesn't like free albums or EPs?), some great snaps, the best new tracks and the most hilarious news stories from the last 3 months, and also some albums you should probably have on your radar from now until the end of September - among other things, because we at the 405 like going all-in on features like these, and our Second Quarter Report is no exception...
