Delaney Utterback Top Tens for 2013

Dec 18, 2013

Delaney Utterback, KRCC Station Manager

Top Ten in no order:
Jagwar Ma - Howlin'

Midlake - Antiphon

Andrea Chalfin, KRCC News Director:
It should be no secret by now that I’m quite the music fan, so when Vicky asked me to participate in this year’s Top 10 list, it felt like a no-brainer.  The truth is though, I’m simply not as exposed to all the new releases in quite the same way as our amazing DJs.  So, we came up with a compromise:  two albums that pulled me in and refused to let go, and eight other stuffs that caught my attention.
Albums that Pulled Me in and Refused to Let Go:
Scout Niblett: It’s Up to Emma

G.T.'S TOP TEN RELEASES, AND RE-RELEASES OF 2013(in no particular order, off the top of what's left of my head. So many fine choices, so little time...or space!)

1)WINGS OVER AMERICA-WINGS (CAPITOL/MPL) (1976)A re-mastered, elongated re-issue of Macca's triumphant '76 tour, sounding better, and more surprisingly "rockier" than I remembered. By way of but one example, check out the late lil' Jimmy McCullough's sizzling guitar work on his ironically-entitled composition "Medicine Jar".
