Pitchfork

Pitchfork just posted their Honorable Mention Albums of 2013, which they say is "not #51 through #70 in our albums poll, but rather, records we thought were exceptional this year and deserved to be highlighted regardless of where they wound up." It includes a number of albums that did get Best New Music throughout the year (like the Burial EP that got a 9.0 last week), a certain inescapable young New Zealand pop star (who just announced two Roseland Ballroom shows), some metal representation, a couple indie legends, and the raw noise punk demo of Perfect Pussy, who also made Pitchfork's Top 100 Tracks.

Check out the full list in alphabetical order below...

Lorde is only an honorable mention? Guess I won't scalp tickets for that scrub's show.

William Tyler's album is one of the years best, should be on the actual list.

I wonder what I think about this.

william tyler's is great but its instrumental...hard to really stand out.

he's such a nice guy too.

I wish they understood that "The Flaming Lips" should be classified under "F" as opposed to their error of "T" in accordance with basic grammar rules.

Now THAT'S what I call honorable

10:17, because it's instrumental it's hard to standout? I find that record far more lyrical than, like, the 6th grade poetry of Haim.

I agree. Those instrumentals read like vibrant short stories. Really easy to get lost in that stuff. Haim...haha

Radiohead should be on this list, on general principle

If I don't see a year end list with Toro y Moi and Ryan Hemsworth soon, I may have to start my own Pitchfork site.

White people always come to hip hop videos and talk a bunch of racist shit like do we go to your shitty rock and heavy mental music and talk shit? No because we don't give a fuck what y'all listen to so take y'all cracker asses elsewhere..
