In the wake of Trent Reznor's twitter rant after the Grammy's cut off the epic closing rock performance, the rehearsal video of the mashup has surfaced online. The original performance was shortened due to lack of time and was also littered with information about the show's sponsors.

Tens of thousands of albums have been released this past year, so P&B are taking on the arduous task of breaking down our very own Top 10 Albums of 2013 List. We'll break down the albums, EPs, and mixtapes, etc, that made for quintessential listening throughout the year. If you don't see something on here that you feel should've made the lists, feel free to leave a comment or send us an email about it!
10) Alice In Chains - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
Alice In Chains welcomes you to this year's countdown coming in at number 10. I've had my doubt about this iteration of the band with William DuVall taking over on vocals. I wasn't a fans of their first album together, "Black Gives Away To Blue", but "Devil" came off like the AIC album we've all been waiting for, post-Staley. Sludgy guitars, heavy beats and signature harmonies make this a must for any nostalgic grunge head.

10) Jim James - Regions of Light and Sound of God

The My Morning Jacket frontman go solo and gives us a funky set of songs with a spiritual bent, using some interesting drum loops and gaining inspiration from R&B and soul.
9) Oddisee - The Beauty In All

Some of Oddisee's albums feature lyrics, but I feel his true essence is captured through his instrumental LPs. He first blew me away on his Rock Creek Park mixtape from 2012 – a love letter to an area in his hometown of Washington, DC. This new record shows a huge leap in production skills, is a bit more progressive, and is reminiscent of Flying Lotus. This guy keeps getting better and better. He's one of the most underrated producers in hip hop.

It took me this long to finally figure it out. Figure out why my interest in hockey has been minimal at best this season.

I learned a bunch of new things recently, friends. Mostly from watching hockey (which is the best way to learn anything, really). In no order of importance :

Nerdy Crooner Plays Ladies Man on Latest Release 'Anything In Return'
If you've been on the P&B tip for a quite some time, you may recall my past post on the Chillwave genre, where I searched for some guidance/insight/understanding of exactly what this style of music really was.

10) Kid Koala - 12 bit Blues
I've got so much love for Kid Koala, and it goes beyond him being a proud Canadian. Eric San (aka Koala) takes old blues to the next level with a fresh take on some old recordings. As an added bonus, San creatively found a way to turn the CD case into a working mini turntable. Brilliant.
