Feature // One Hundred Most Influential Independent Releases Of 2013 // #1 With Daniel Thomas

2013! what a year. I’m so happy with Independent Music News‘ growth and our resilience to overcome self-doubt, support an array of exciting independent/unsigned artists and write words that come from the heart. We still have another two months till we enter 2013, however we’d (+ guests) like to promote/support five inspirational, creative and motivating pieces of art, twice a week. Here’s part one and five albums that are truly unique, worth a purchase and most definitely my favourite independent releases in 2013.
