Best albums of 2014 (from someone who doesn’t listen to music)
If you knew me circa 2003, I would love to stump people by talking about bands they never heard of and would spend most of my time reading Pitchfork, Stereogum, and Brooklyn Vegan to learn about the latest indie bands. Well, I don’t do that anymore, so most of what I know about music still are the bands I liked in the early ‘aughts who just happen to still be releasing records. So, remember that when considering this list. Although lists like this don’t mean anything anyway. So read this, don’t read it, whatever. It’s a list of albums I liked that were released in 2014.
Cold War Kids, Hold My Home
The Raveonettes, Pe’ahi
First Aid Kit, Stay Gold
The New Pornographers, Brill Bruisers
Royksopp & Robyn, Do It Again
Rival Sons, Great Western Valkyrie
