Best Albums of 2013: 100-76



Bend music makes the top 100
  • Bend music makes the top 100
As we crack the top 100, bands ought to become more familiar.

If you're someone who takes in a lot of local concerts, it should be no surprise that Bend's instrumental rock outfit Isles made it into this stage of the Source's year end countdown.

Their shows quickly became legend over the course of 2013 with their sweeping rock building on the success of bands like Explosions In The Sky. Since their debut album Viracocha isn't available on Spotify, make sure to check it out on Bandcamp.

This time we've got the 85th entry, the 12th studio release from psych rockers Of Montreal and their beautifully decorated record, Lousy With Sylvianbriar and it can be yours just by sharing our FACEBOOK post to your newsfeed.
