My Top 100 Albums Of 2014

Lots of great stuff out right now; I found enough good LPs this year to do a full top 100, so what the hell, he it goes. The order starts to really matter around 50, and I've included one of my favourite lyrics for each of the top 25. Enjoy, or don't!
100Single Mothers
Negative Qualities
99Aphex Twin
Syro


yo this is that cat that Skrillex likes right?
98Antarctigo Vespucci
Soulmate Stuff


If Laura Stevenson says it is her favourite album of the year, you can be pretty sure that I
will listen to it.
97Hey Rosetta!
Second Sight


I'm falling out of love with this band but Seeds will always be one of my favourites
96Thom Yorke
Tomorrow's Modern Boxes


Poor Phil...
95The New Pornographers

If Neko Case was more involved you all know I would have been really annoying about this
album.

is....pretty cheesy though.
87Opiuo

Every once in a while you just gotta get down to stuff like this, for your health.

If you're gonna rip off Bon Iver, you better do it well.
82TV on the Radio
Seeds


I thought this was gonna suck and I was really scared to listen to it, and then I finally did and
it's actually alright. Still, they used to be basically the best band going and now they are
....not.
81KETEV

If you kind of like house music and can't sleep and want to listen to a really creepy and
unsettling album at 4 AM then hey check this out.
80Caribou

65Hospitality
Trouble

Lyrics + what this album helped teach me = 5/5
How the music sounds in my earholes = 3/5
61Spoon
They Want My Soul
60The Hotelier
Home, Like NoPlace Is There


You either think this should be top 5 or nowhere near top 100. I don't know it's fun.
59ASC
Truth Be Told


I thought this was gonna uhn tss uhn tss a lot more but oh well it's pretty nice.
58Perfect Pussy
Say Yes To Love


Say Yes To The Dress
57Braid

I like this about the same as Frame and Canvas. I don't know if that opinion is allowed
though, in the real world.
56Le Butcherettes
Cry Is For The Flies


Best live band with a pretty dope album.
55Wen
Signals

52A Winged Victory for the Sullen
Atomos
51D'Angelo
Black Messiah
50Dean Blunt
Black Metal
49Jim Head

Sometimes I accidentally listen to jazz and I go "woah this is dope" and starts me thinking
that I should listen to it non-accidentally more often.
48Real Estate
Atlas


Fuck you, Mac DeMarco
47The Rural Alberta Advantage
Mended With Gold
46The Flashbulb
Nothing Is Real


His best album in a minute!
45Perfume Genius
Too Bright


Damn this album is Too Good. (Nice.)
44Marketa Irglova
Muna


If you like The Swell Season or that movie Once then hey you have good taste and probably
know about this already but this is a the solo project from the pianists/vocalist of that
band/movie. Her voice is majestic. This album is an homage to Iceland (she's Czech). Listen
to it.
43 Isaiah Rashad
Civilia Demo


I guess it's a demo so shouldn't technically count? I don't know, it's a bunch of songs that I
liked so hey here it is.
42White Lung
Deep Fantasy
41East India Youth
Total Strife Forever


I honestly dislike a substantial portion of this, but you have to absolutely commend the guy's
(guys' ?) eclecticism. I don't even know what to call this record but it's a very interesting
listen.
40 Ice Age
Plowing into the Field of Love


This band is growing on me a lot. I didn't listen to the last one more than once but this album
is pretty great.
39Radiator Hospital
Torch Song
38Boris
Noise


I think they played Vancouver and I straight up forgot about it. I am an awful perosn.
37Kassem Mosse
Workshop 19


This guy releases a lot of stuff, but rarely a full album. Really nice deep house kinda vibes.
Giggity.
36Woods
With Light And With Love
35Thou
Heathen


Hey sometimes I listen to metal and sometimes it is good.
34First Aid Kit
Stay Gold


alternate title: Ponyboy
33Taylor Swift
1989


you saw this coming
32Arcade Fire
Her


I wasn't going to include this at first for obvious reasons, but it came out in 2014, it's a full
length album of original material, and it's sooooo good. I listened to this for days straight
during reading/writing binges. This piece of music definitely deserves to be mentioned in a
conversation about great 2014 albums.

Fighting through the fog
I can't believe it rained all summer long
24The Pack A.D.
Do Not Engage


Why would I live life
Worried, worried all the time?
It shouldn't be a surprise
It's easy to be terrified
Oh believe me, I've tried everything
I'm still sittin on needles and pins
Every breath I take is a second that I cannot replace
And when I feel like this I wish, I wish I could shut it off
23FKA Twigs
LP1


Higher than a motherfucker, dreaming of you as my lover
Flying like a steamer thinking of new ways to do each other
22Joyce Manor
Never Hungover Again


You always fell in love the way you're supposed to
At the Target inside of the mall
Fear of what you weren't exposed to
21Elbow
The Take Off And Landing Of Everything


I am an old tree
Gonna talk my jaw free
Someone come and get me
Another night beside myself would finish me
Give us G & T and sympathy
20Liars
Mess


Cast out culture
Compound impatience
Without regard
Trash the book the films are based on
Facts are fact and fiction's fiction

Nikki Nack


You can't hold tight to what you have
Cause there is nothing there to grab
Now a life is a shadow of the thought
You never did have what you thought you got
17Ought
More Than Any Other Day


And today more than any other day
I am prepared to make the decision between two percent and whole milk
16RATKING
So It Goes


Six million trains to ride, choose one
Six million stories to tell, whose one?
15Clipping
CLPPNG


Everybody think they're hard until their face hit ground
Everybody makes a choice, it is not profound
Either get money or die
Get faded or die
Get that stainless or die
Get your hands in the sky or get it between the eyes

I walk back in the night alone
Got caught up in my song

None of the lights were on

But I shit in your bathroom
8St. Vin
St. Vincent


Digital witnesses
What's the point of even sleeping?
If I can't show it, if you can't see me
What's the point of doing anything?
7Flying Lotus
You're Dead!


I can see the darkness in my and it's quite amazing
Life and death is no mystery and I wanna taste it
6Run The Jewels
Run The Jewels 2


Got hope for the living, got prayers for the dead
In the sky, got whisky and rye for the voices in my head
5 Saintseneca
Darc Arc


So down that trumpet resonating with your sigh
Often spoke of but seldom realized
4Phantogram
Voices


They're eating all my shotgun smiles
3Mitski
Bury Me At Makeout Creek


But I've been anywhere and that's not what I want
I wanna be still with you
2Trophy Scars
Holy Vacants


You're not alone, you're just lonely sometimes
1Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra
Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything


God we've tried, how much we've tried
Drunk and high we've seen the sun rise
Many sleepless night we've seen
The sun collapsed on everything
It's only love that's worth to sing
These bells are broke but they still ring
Love and love's the only thing
Shut up awhile, the birds are singing
