2014 Music (Half Way Point)

79 posts in this topic

I have about 2 posts a year but this is always my favorite. Here is my top 11 with links to my favorite songs from each album. 

 

11. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything

 

10. Angel Olsen - Burn Your Fire For No Witness

 

9. Mac Demarco - Salad Days

 

8. Adult Jazz - Gist Is

 

7. Strand Of Oaks -  Heal 

 

6. Horse Thief - S/T

 

5. Sharon Van Etten - Are We There

 

4. David Bazan - Monthly Volume 1

 

3. Wye Oak - Shriek 

 

2. The Antlers - Familiars 

 

1. Timber Timbre - Hot Dreams

 

This year, in my opinion, was filled with a bunch of B to B+ albums. Nothing that truly stood out. Sharon Van Etten might have put out the best record of the year but it is so difficult to listen at times due to its emotion and open nature that it couldn't make its way to the top. Timber Timbre has with their last two albums been my favorite album of each year. They are awesome. 

 

Other albums that are worth listening to: Alvvays - Alvvays, Asgeir - In The Silence, Chet Faker - Built on Glass, Haley Bonar - Last War, Metronomy - Love Letters, Lydia Loveless - Somewhere Else, Perfume Genius - Too Bright, She Keeps Bees - Eight Houses, St. Vincent - St. Vincent, TOPS - Picture You Staring, We Were Promised Jetpacks - Unravelling, Weyes Blood - The Innocents, Wild Beasts - Present Tense,
