Amel Larrieux: Year's Best: Okayplayer's Top 13 albums of 2013

12. Amel Larrieux – Ice Cream Everyday

Amel Larrieux‘s fifth solo album Ice Cream Everyday  arrived with a minimum of advance fanfare and slipped into the world even more quietly than expected. But quiet as kept it has turned out to be her most satisfying album since 1999’s Infinite Possibilities and one of the few albums of the year that doesn’t offer much in the way of skippable material. Much like the treat of the title, Ice Cream doesn’t necessarily offer up anything groundbreaking or new but the classic flavors on songs like “Afraid”; “You Don’t See Me,” and “Berries and Cream” dare you to not hit the rewind button. The album’s highlight comes in the form of the deliciously haunting “Danger,” a 2013 highlight (and a track we’d donate all sorts of body parts to hear Thom Yorke sing). –Brainchild
