Some of my fave albums of 2014. I didn’t see any of these acts live this year because I am old and lame.
Sylvan Esso, Sylvan Esso
A delightful album through and through. Maybe my favorite of the year.
Glass Animals, ZABA
Loved this. I’ve noticed they are starting to get play on 107.7 The End which maybe means this isn’t such a cool choice but again, I’m way more old and lame these days so too bad.
Azealia Banks, Broke with Expensive Taste
Totally worth the wait following the release of her single 212 like three years ago. Follow her on Twitter-epic rants galore.
Zola Jesus, Taiga
Yes please. Zola Jesus is amazing. And she lives on Vashon Island apparently!
The War on Drugs, Lost in the Dream
Not my normal type jam, which is anything electro-ish, but a thoroughly solid album on the top of many a “best of “ list this year.
Dum Dum Girls, Too True
Indie pop with great vocals. Love.
Caribou, Our Love
Good stuff. Good lord I would make a terrible music reviewer. I try to read Pitchfork reviews sometimes and am like, what the eff are you talking about.
Took me a while to get into this one other than the glorious single “Queen” but well worth the effort.
MO, No Mythologies to Follow
Electro poppy good times. Really bitter I missed her live this year-shit sold out fast.
