TOP 5 RECORDS PLAYED IN THE OFFCES OF INNOVATIVE LEASURE IN 2013:

“Ty Segall is a big office favorite. This is one of the heaviest albums of the year on some sludgey stoner-rock vibes.”
Arcade Fire Reflektor “Reflektor”
“Even as one of the biggest bands in the world, they really keep it forward thinking on every release.”
Toro y Moi Anything In Return “So Many Details”
“Chaz never disappoints. He took it to the next level with this album.”
Jessy Lanza Pull My Hair Back “Kathy Lee”
