Modcast #289: Mr. Suave's Best of 2013

Another year down as they say. But what a year. This past year saw an explosion of mod friendly sounds from soul to power pop to sixties beat and everything in between. I've collected here some of the songs from some of my favorite artists and albums from the past year. Give it a listen, I think you'll agree that 2013 was pretty good, musically speaking.

The Chase -- Misspent Youth
RAF -- Hadrian's Wall
The Vice -- Singing Around
The Luck of Eden Hall -- Queen Of The Stars
The Sha La La's -- Feelin' Real
Alfa 9 -- El Morocco
The High Learys -- Two To Match
The Strypes -- What The People Don't See
The 45s -- Around And Around
The Attention! -- Button-Down Harry's Back
The Ace -- The Poet
The Most
-- I'm Not Your Man
Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings -- Goldfinger
Shaolin Temple Defenders -- Kung Fu Fighting
French Boutik -- Ici Paris
Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators -- Time To Get Business Straight
The Excitements -- Keep Your Hands Off

What a great collection! I immediately bought The Attention! and The Chase. Thanks for this blog, I would never have heard of these bands.
