Top 10 Albums of 2013

I’ve been scratching my head while searching for the best albums of 2013 and thinking about what really happened in music this year?

Laura of Miami: Marblemusic

I’ve learned a thing or two about marble in the last couple of years and have been fascinated with the veins and color patterns found in natural stone.

Scaramouche

Scaramouche used to be a popular disco club inside the Omni mall from the mid 70s to mid 80s.
