It’s that moment to expose my selection of top 10 releases of 2013. In fact, these musicians are the bloodline of Seattle’s underground music scene. It’s deep-rooted traditions have proven to be no exception this year with many of us experiencing lovely times gathering in the basements of homes in non-descript locations, the occasional abandoned freeway pass, guerrilla style sets on the concrete patios of parking lots, or the obscure record store. These bands kept our spirits up as we found endless limits on sound. So in true DIY fashion I present to you the best releases of the Seattle music scene for 2013. Individually, they encompass the North Westerner with all its blood, sweat, and ambition. I also snapped a photo of each of them in their raw element.
As we look back on the year we can appreciate that our musical community spawned a new dawn of perpetual rebirth locally, and their form of expression is non-comparative in the organic spirit of the underground.
