2013 | Steve’s Top 12 (?) Albums of the Year

[W]elp, it’s that time of the year again — time to try and stack rank the albums I’ve spent my life with over the past year. Weighing intangible against intangible and doing my best to pick which one comes out on top! In some ways, this annual ritual makes me feel like I’m trying to pick a favorite kid. Actually, doing that might be easier. I keed, I keed. No DSS calls please.

Please do grab his new record, Dad Country. It’s highly recommended.
