Every year, we look forward to the conversations we have in the shop about albums that we love. As 2023 came to a close, we did just that. Although there were fewer releases this year that really grabbed onto us, we still felt there were some incredible albums that we loved spending time with. We created this list below—three albums from each of us here at AudioConcepts—to share some of those records with you. We hope you find something you enjoy as well.
Please note: we are not the music critics at Pitchfork, and thus this list is not some definitive list of the best music released in 2023… just a short list of music we loved.
