Jeff's Best Albums of 2013: #4: Boards of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest

There's not a lot I can say about my #4 album of the year, Boards of Canada's Tomorrow's Harvest, that I didn't already say a few weeks ago. It's not as if the type of music they do is conducive to individual songs, and the album (along with their sound in general) almost defies description.

So I'm not even really going to try. This is the best electronic album I've heard in years, rivals some of the best music they've put out period, and although I know that this isn't everyone's cup of tea, it's quite the surprise that it's exactly the album I've been seeking out for quite some time.

Oddly enough, this is the only album in my top 10 that isn't either a female singer-songwriter or a group with female lead singers. It's one of those years, I guess, and it's made my ears very happy, but it's an odd little statistic.
