When it comes to end-of-year lists, it's definitely not all about us; we love to know what our favorite musicians and artists have been digging the most out of 2013, too, and we're thrilled to share those lists here.
Earlier this year, Mayer Hawthorne taught us how to tie a bow tie, gave us a peek into his Instagram and sat down with us for a Q & A (plus released his third solo album, Where Does This Door Go?). He's shared a list of his favorites before, and now we've got his latest! Check out some of his favorites from 2013 below.
Mayer Hawthorne's Top Five of 2013
1. Alunageorge, Body Music
"Sexy beats, sexy vocals, catchy melodies."
2. Mitzi, Truly Alive
"Intelligent, Australian, music nerd, garage, disco that still makes girls dance."
3. Parquet Courts, Light Up Gold
"Loved the album at first listen and loved the band even more after seeing them live."
4. Kanye West, Yeezus
"Hurry up with my damn croissants."
5. JMSN, †Priscilla† (2012 - late discovery)
"Soulful, innovative and bangin' from top to stop. Chicks dig it. Detroit wins again."
