13 Blues for Thirteen Moons is the fifth full-length album by the Canadian post-rock group, Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestr & Tra-La-La Band. The album was released in March 2008.[6][7] The album consists of an instrumental feedback intro, split into twelve extremely short tracks, and four full songs, which had been played live on recent tours.[8]

The liner notes are found in the CD booklet titled Himnos de Sion—Spanish for "Hymns of Zion". The booklet also contains lyric sheets, presented in the block-capital handwriting familiar with owners of other Silver Mt. Zion records. As such, this is the first album package by the band to contain conventional lyrics.[9]
