One Year Sputnik Anniversary

I made my account on Sputnikmusic one year ago today. A lot has rhappened in that short rrrramount time, I've met plenty of cool people, rsome of which that I'm now good friends with, rrrrI've become a rcontributor, written 100 reviews, and I've been introduced to a lot of rgreat rrrrnew music thanks to the site. Here's to another long year guys. rThe list is my top 25 rrrrpersonal picks for the first quarter of 2013. Cheers.
25Shugo Tokumaru
In Focus?


So many exotic instruments, yet it's so accessible.
24Teena Marie
Beautiful


A rare case where a posthumous album doesn't insult the artist's legacy.
23Ashley Monroe
Like a Rose


I'm a sucker for country that can sound throwback without seeming bland, and sound modern without being too polished.
22 The Joy Formidable
Wolf's Law


Like a thunderstorm of an indie rock record.
21Jose James
No Beginning No End


2013 has been year of the suave so far when it comes to R&B, and James is a pretty formidable one-man force when it comes to that department.
20Alice Smith
She


Greg knows what's up.
19Nails
Abandon All Life


I like the part when it crusaded against my mental well-being.
18Autre Ne Veut
Anxiety


More outspoken and theatrical than How to Dress Well, but just as sultry.
17Dawn Richard
Goldenheart


I'm slowly realizing that the real appeal is the lyrics. Talk about putting quite the spin on themes of breakup, she turns relationship issues into fascinating mid-evil and sci-fi tales.
16Adam Ant
Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar...


It's such a mess. As convoluted as its title, but I'm still happy that the guy is able to make a frenetic mess like this at his age and for that to be the plan all along.
15Johnny Marr
The Messenger


Hooks galore.
14Tomahawk
Oddfellows


Can Mike Patton do wrong? I haven't heard it yet.
13ASAP Rocky
LongLiveA$AP


Long live and prosper.
12Bilal
A Love Surreal


Sobhi knows what's up.
11Atoms for Peace
Amok


I'm surprised these guys worked this well together. They don't try to steal the show from each other either, and the ideas seem to flow smoothly into something that represents all of their contributions into making a special product.
10Steven Wilson
The Raven that Refused to Sing


Wilson's tribute to a era forgotten too often by those who experienced it, due to the acid holes in their brains from LSD abuse probably. But oh, how it must have been worth it if this is an indicator.
9Foxygen
We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors...


They really like the Beatles, that's clear, but it seems that all the great pop revolutionists of their era do as well.
8Autechre
Exai


Now we just Boards of Canada to get their asses in gear.
7Ra Ra Riot
Beta Love


Rudy pls.
6 Iceage
You're Nothing


We may be, but this album is far from it.
5Beach Fossils
Clash the Truth


Surf's up.
4Matmos
The Marriage of True Minds


I'm happy to report that it didn't polarize and alienate me.
3Mountains
Centralia


Lavishing stuff. These two literally do erect mountain-sized ambient soundscapes.
2Rhye
Woman


This developed into everything I hoped it would.
1Justin Timberlake
The 20/20 Experience


April 1st 2013. Never forget.
