Top Picks of August 2013

Well, we’ve come to the end of another exciting month which means that it’s time for me to backtrack through all of my reviews and come up with a list of the greatest records I have listened to over the course of August.

In no particular order, here is that list:

Junkyard – The Birthday Party (1982 Missing Link)


Psychotic punk frenzy from the king of madness, Nick Cave.

Debut – Bjork (1993 One Little Indian)


Quirky experimental pop music from Iceland’s crowned queen of weird.

It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back – Public Enemy (1988 Def Jam)

One of the greatest rap records of all time.

Licensed To Ill – The Beastie Boys (1986 Def Jam)

Hilarious angry white boy hip-hop with a healthy sense of irony.

Cinder – Dirty Three (2005 Touch and Go)


Beautifully played and composed instrumental folk rock.

Songs The Lord Taught Us – The Cramps (1980 Illegal)
