Best of 2014

This marks my 6th annual End of the Year listing. As usual, there’s plenty of great music I either missed out on this year, didn’t give enough listens in order to justifiably put it on my list, or stuff that just really didn’t catch my ear. I hope if nothing else, this gives you a few new artists to enjoy. Thanks for reading through my list, and please be sure to share your favorite albums of the year in the comments.

Clicking the album art takes you to iTunes to buy the album, clicking on the track titles takes you to YouTube to hear them.
