I’m also making feeble attempts to catch up on newish music. Some friends on Facebook are incessantly posting Youtube music videos on there for years, as if they’re running old-fashioned music blogs, so I’m not as far behind as I might have suspected.
Checked Mojo’s site for its 2013 list, as some of their reviews hit things that I dig. I got no further than #50, the first one. It’s going to be more interesting than the later works of faded giants most likely.
