This week we revealed our list of The 50 Best Albums Of 2013. Was it the same as your list? If you’re Noel Gallagher, probably not! We also published a long, behind-the-scenes profile of the Walkmen’s last days before their extreme hiatus. Did you like it? Y/y? Answer Y to receive more long, behind-the-scenes profiles next year. Elsewhere, James Murphy garnered some advance buzz for Best Coffee Of 2014, Eddie Vedder shaved off a fan’s dreads, and, in a move reminiscent of last month’s hottest topic, Jay Z and Beyoncé temporarily went vegan (but not to protest animal cruelty or anything). Speaking of meat, there was no Shut Up, Dude last week because of Thanksgiving (apologies to Morrissey … and Mastodon) so comments from both this week and last week were eligible for this countdown. Check out the winners and losers below.

Our homies over at B3SCI dipped their toes into the label game earlier this year with Jungle’s incredible The Heat EP. They’ll be following that up in early 2014 with yet another killer track – Beat Culture‘s “Drifter (Ft. Psychic Twin).” Feeling like a cross between LCD Soundsystem and GEMS, this eerie pop number is the first original to come from the Sunik Kim project in over a year, though it’s well worth the wait. Give it a listen below, and pre-order your copy of the 7″, which comes paired with B-side “Shibuya,” now via B3SCI.

Three exhilarating punk bands at different stages of their careers converged at NYU’s Kimmel Center last night, and our photographer BJ Enright was there to take in the action. Atop the bill were the trailblazing hardcore veterans Ceremony, currently at work on the follow-up to 2012′s Album Of The Week honoree Zoo. Vancouver punks White Lung were also on hand, and they too are at work a new LP, the follow-up to 2012′s triumphantly splenetic Sorry. Opening the night was the buzzy Perfect Pussy, who recently signed to Captured Tracks.
