Welcome to the Quarter Report  - FACT’s favourite 20 albums released over the last three months.

Truth told, the first quarter of 2013 has been EP season, with superlative short-form releases from MGUN, DJ Rashad, A Made Up Sound, and Actress all getting our hearts thumping. When it comes to full-lengths, however, it’s been a good, if not quite vintage, few months: by and large, we’ve been charmed rather than bewitched, entertained rather than blindsided.

Gazing over the 20 records gathered here, some are strong releases with glaring Achilles’ heels; some are fine exercises in consolidation rather than innovation; some fizz with potential without quite catching alight; and a clutch are, by consensus, brilliant from end to end. Still, gentle disclaimer aside, these are the records that, for us, have stood out from the pack – all deserve your time and attention.
