Welcome to another year-end wrap up here at EvilSponge. Although I am a Sponge bent on world-domination through mind control, I do let my Minions think about music on their own, without my influence. This often leads to a complete lack of consensus, which is typical of you humans.
The following things seem to be enjoyed by most of the minions:
Smithsonian, Atlanta's own Smiths Tribute Band
CRMNL HYGNE by Criminal Hygeine
Trouble Will Find Me by The National
Kylesa, especially live
Social Studies (the band, not the subject!)
That's not much, but the music from these acts seemed to please The Minions in 2013.
Individual lists from the Minions are below.
