Jordan’s Favourite Albums of 2013

Week two of staff Best Of 2013 lists is almost over! To spice things up I thought I’d pit Andy’s rock-centric list against the top 10 from Jordan Howard, our National Accounts Manager at MapleMusic Recordings & Fontana North. Which (mostly) guitar based list best matches your own favourites?

1.    Dave Hause – Devour

Since my friends, family and Girlfriend will no longer allow me to play any Loved Ones records due to SEVERE over enjoyment on my part, I had to turn to Dave’s solo stuff to get my fix. Dave’s first  solo album (Resolutions, 2011) gave me hope that the music that I loved in my early 20’s could still be relevant to me in my late 20’s (early 30’s cough, cough) and  Devour took that a step further. It took a little longer to grow on me than Resolutions did but nonetheless still ended up as the most played album in my iTunes this year. It’s just a ridiculous record and if you have never seen him live, I promise you that you have never seen a single person command a room like he can.
