Overlooked 2014

Some of the great lesser-known albums of 2014 that ya'll may not have jammed.
1Brontide
Artery


Instrumental post/math-rock with a lot of cool progressive leanings. Dan's review says it perfectly, it has a sense of swagger. Really moody and fun, and at times quite technical and virtuosic.
2Black Monolith
Passenger


Black Metal with hardcore punk and post-rock influences. Really an enveloping influences. While it is incredibly aggressive, it can take a step back and be incredibly beautiful.
3Mimicking Birds
Eons


Folk mixed with alternative or indie rock. It sounds like a hypnotizing mix of Iron & Wine and Modest Mouse. For an album of its style, its atmosphere is unmatched.
4Comrades
Safekeeper


A really emotional mix of post-rock, and heavy post-hardcore (maybe even closer to metal). Instrumentals are seamless and beautiful and are easily the highlight of the album.
5Chris Letchford
Lightbox


A contemporary jazz album from the guitarist of Scale the Summit that while lacking a bit of variety, is a really solid modern jazz album. Lots of incredible playing from all members (features Reign of Kindo and Evan Brewer).
6Acres
Solace


Extremely dense post-metal/hardcore with a bit of an emo feeling. In vein of Isis mixed with Envy and Rinoa.
7Sugary Sweet Machines
Tours of the Bleak


Incredibly solid experimental industrial project from a few sputnik members.
8Terraformer
Creatures


Atmospheric sludgy metal that sounds like Russian Circles. Ambient and soaring passages break way to dense sludgy walls of instrumental riffage.
9Locktender
Rodin


Intelligent post-metal/hardcore with epic songwriting and a sense of strong emotionalism. I will rant and rave over this album for a long time.
10Ricky Eat Acid
Three Love Songs


Very well written ambient/electronic with a raw lo-fi feel. Thank you Yak
