Kingdok's 2014

Didn't hear a huge amount of music this year, but some of it was fantastic.
1Dog Fashion Disco
Sweet Nothings

A great year for comeback news (bursting at the seams for FNM!), DFD pick up where Polkadot Cadaver left off with a far superior album to Last Call In Jonestown.
Best track: Tastes So Sweet
2Mongol Horde
Mongol Horde

Amazing to hear Frank Turner returning to his hardcore roots, and in places surpassing the heady heights of Million Dead.
Best track: Casual Threats From The Weekend Hardmen

Great sounding live album, featuring the whole of On The Turn, and the fact that these guys are back making music after 17 years is amazing. New track Electricity puts a huge grin on my face for hours.
Best Track: Electricity

Still don't know what to make of this bubblegum J-pop thrash/tech metal mash up, just know that it sounds unlike any other album anywhere!
Best track: Catch Me If You Can
5Future Funk Squad
Darker Days

Haven't listened to much dance music for a while, but FFS' dark cinematic soundscapes layered over breakbeats was supremely effective.
Best track: The Hunted
6Passenger (UK)

Pasenger is one of the best story-telling lyricists around, and his folksy-edged acoustic rock is very affecting.
Best track: Scare Away The Dark
The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets

Wanted this to be a lot better than it is. Has got a little too much filler,however it also features a good number of barnstorming tunes.
Best track: Vibetech
8Adebisi Shank
This Is The Third Album

Great instrumental metal, incorporating electronics much more naturally than their last two albums.
Best track: Thundertruth
9Death From Above 1979
The Physical World

Wasn't a huge fan of their first album, and generally prefer the fuller sound of this. Builds to a stunning ending.
Best track: The Physical World
