Aok's Top 10 Of 2014

In which I'm a lil late to the party, listened to not all that much new music and am apparently on Warp Records' dick still even though I didn't realize it.

Clark hits with one of the better albums he's done in a while. If you're big into IDM or just smooth Electronic music in
general, check this out.
9Clockwork Indigo
Clockwork Indigo EP

Hip hop underground superstars Flatbush Zombies team up with the Underachievers for an awesome little EP. Issa and
AK add a nice flavor to Meechy, Juice & Eric's clan while the rest of us wait for
8 Deadmau5

After the not super cohesive "4x4=12" followed by the disappointing ">album title goes here
7Run the Jewels
Run the Jewels 2

El-P & Killer Mike eclipse their first LP somehow. No I don't know how. Supposedly written as police brutality told
from black and white perspectives, Render & Reline's rapport and flow never stops as their words are every bit as
eloquent as the poetry your kids are assigned to read in school.
6Thom Yorke
Tomorrow's Modern Boxes

While not quite as good as his debut, The Eraser, this album still has its moments and has only grown with time.
5King Fantastic
The Great Man Theory

Again, I'm too big a fan to call this album better than "Finger Snaps And Gun Claps", but holy shit if "The Hardest
Song Ever" and "Spooky Spooks & the trouble with Capitalism" aren't the biggest bangers these guys have ever done.
Taking a step back from the violence, Reese spends most of the album philosophizing, and he's one of the very best at
what he does.
4Schoolboy Q

With homies Kendrick & A$AP not releasing records & Ab-Soul being a bit off the mark on his latest, Schoolboy did
TDE loud + proud with his latest release. Tracks 2 through 12 are all good enough to be singles, with Lamar & Tyler
providing notable guest spots on this superb release.
Our Love

Could it be that Caribou are only getting better with time? After 2010's Swim, which garnered him + band the
auspicious honor of opening for Radiohead, Snaith doesn't let his ego get the better of him and produces music that I
simply cannot describe better than Rudy already has.
2Flying Lotus
You're Dead!

"Hold up hold up I bet you thinkin that we dead" raps Ellison himself on what quickly became my summer's go to
track. Not quite challenging Cosmogramma in my eyes, Ellison taps into something that he never has here, which is
the rap game, with major features by Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg. Not only that, but he hasn't missed a beat with
"The Protest" also chilling me to my bones as I listen for the umpteenth time. Oh and his live performance has taken
another step up somehow -- truly a site to be seen & heard from!
1Aphex Twin

We've moved on for the most part. Nah we're not still listening to Richard D James' newest release. It's not really that
different than his other stuff anyways. "I can't believe I paid money for this", some might say, but they don't get it.
Richard D James is pushing the envelope even still after being an inspiration to just about every notable elctronic music
artist today. You're just not paying careful enough attention
