Mistakes in Black & White – Best of 2013

1213-kanye-ice-cream-03-x17-3

In an absolute first for this blog – the best of 2013 is coming to you relatively hot out of the oven in the first week of January, rather than in mid-summer. The odd sloppy transition might give you some idea where the time was saved. If there was an underlying theme to this mix, it’s the prevalence of hat-tips to some of my favourite 70s/80s female vocalists, with Anita Baker, Grace Jones and Brenda Russell (twice!) getting a look in via some very nice re-edits. There’s an OutKast cover to tide us all over, and in terms of the year’s big sellers, I’m not Thicke, but I am Daft (with a side order of JT). My only hope is that you enjoy it as much as Kanye is enjoying that ice cream.
