This Just In: List-O-Mania

The other day I took some time to compile Sweat’s top sellers of 2013. I whittled it down to 50, then 20, and there were a lot of ties. It was dizzying, so I settled at 10 (still with some ties). It’s an interesting list – some titles you’d expect to see, but also some classic strongholds (will they ever not be popular?), and one local heavyweight (emphasis on the ‘heavy’). Take a look at the list below and see which records were last year’s customer favorites. And below that is what’s probably our biggest new release/reissue/restock list-to-date. Yay lists!

Sweat’s Top 10 Best Selling Albums of 2013:
1. Atoms For Peace – AMOK
2. Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
3. Arcade Fire – Reflektor / Nas – Illmatic
4. Tame Impala – Lonerism
5. Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires Of The City
6. Boards Of Canada – Tomorrow’s Harvest / QOTSA – …Like Clockwork
7. Kurt Vile – Wakin’ On A Pretty Daze
8. Wu-Tang – Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
9. Holly Hunt – Year One / John Coltrane – A Love Supreme
10. Jimi Hendrix – Are You Experienced? / Radiohead – In Rainbows / The National – Trouble Will Find Me
