Confession time: I’m running behind on Listmas. If you’re an avid reader of the site you’ve probably noticed already, but for those that haven’t, let’s just say things aren’t going according to plan. At this point in time I was hoping to be mid-way through my Top 50 Albums of 2013 countdown, with an eye on finishing it up on Friday. Currently however, I’m just getting started with that list. With any luck, I’ll finish it off and have the full thing up on the site before Christmas. No promises though. There are multiple reasons for the delays, including technical problems, general holiday insanity, and just a touch of writer’s block. The goal is to make everything perfect for you, and that includes the most user-friendly presentation method possible, which I’m working out now. Basically hang tight, and thanks for your patience in this holiday/year-end Listmas season. I love you all. Now let’s tackle the final Wednesday edition of Pick Your Poison for 2013. Today’s highlights include tracks from Cooper, Germany Germany, Life, Longfellow, Mode Moderne, Through the Sparks and Waterstrider. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Black Lips, CYMBALS, London Grammar, Tears For Fears and Tony Molina.
