My Favorite Albums Of 2014

Sianspheric - TheOwl 7" cover
Sianspheric – The Owl 7″

2014 was another eclectic year for me. None of these records sound remotely alike and that makes it hard to pick a favorite. To further complicate things, this list is split evenly between newer artists and established favorites of mine. Benjamin Booker and No Flowers came out of nowhere with their debuts and really knocked my socks off, but I was also very excited to hear Sianspheric’s first release in almost eight years and it did not disappoint.

These are listed in alphabetical order, as always. MostĀ of these releases are available to stream via Spotify. For the others, try Bandcamp.

Amen Dunes – Love
Baptists – Bloodmines
Benjamin Booker – Benjamin Booker
The Life And Times – Lost Bees
No Flowers – EP One/EP Two
Emma Ruth Rundle – Some Heavy Ocean
Sianspheric – The Owl 7″
Torres – Torres (a 2013 release, but new to me, so whatever)
Tune-Yards – Nikki Nack
Two Sheds – Advance CD-R (new album out in 2015)
Wormwood – Wormwood
Young Widows – Easy Pain
