01.04.15 The Best Of 2014 (Please Rec)10.23.14 Senior Year

The Best Of 2014 (Please Rec)

My favorites from 2014. Please rec me some stuff like this, or maybe even rsomething totally different that I might like. Doesn't have to be from 2014, rbut that'd be cool.
25Tiny Moving Parts
Pleasant Living


The new catchier side was nice, and that Always Focused riff...
24La Dispute
Rooms Of The House


A little weak in comparison to their previous material, but lyrically this rules. Plus there's
some interesting guitar moments throughout.
23Basement
Further Sky


The Suede cover was a nice touch, and cool production courtesy of Sam Pura.
22The Black Keys
Turn Blue


Watered down and too obviously catered for commercial audiences, but honestly when
put up against what else mainstream "rock" had to offer this year, this is pretty solid in
comparison.
21Tony Molina
Dissed and Dismissed


Quick, catchy, and fun. What else is there to ask for?
20Weezer
Everything Will Be Alright In The End


Their best album since Pinkerton honestly, even though it clearly comes nowhere close
to that. Just happy they stepped away from all the dance influence.
19Code Orange
I Am King


On here cause Kurt Ballou, but a pretty crushing album too.
18Neil Cicierega
Mouth Silence


Absolutely hilarious and much better than Mouth Sounds. Crocodile Chop is all that
needs to be said.
17Run The Jewels
Run The Jewels 2


Some of the best rap from this year, and caters to my Zach De La Rocha needs.
16Spoon
They Want My Soul


Catchy rock without the annoying commercial production. Great grooves and guitar
progressions.
15BADBADNOTGOOD
III


That effing groove tho.
14Pianos Become The Teeth
Keep You


Really liked the ambience and cleaner vocal style. A little monotone after a while, but the
best tracks on here are just, really great and speak for themselves.
13Joyce Manor
Never Hungover Again


Clean, catchy, and more melodic than their previous material. Probably their best record
yet, and even better live.
12American Football
American Football


Hey, the deluxe edition came out this year...so it came out this year...right?
11 Mastodon
Once More Round The Sun


Very interesting guitar work, and the drummer's voice is actually pretty good, no matter
how weird he and his fake tooth look singing and playing at the same time.
10Architects
Lost Forever // Lost Together


One of the best metal releases of the year. They finally found a way to mesh the
ambience with the riffs, do it well, and make every track worth listening to.
9Cymbals Eat Guitars
LOSE


Way better than Lenses Alien, that cover art, and some great, not to mention catchy,
hooks.
8Every Time I Die
From Parts Unknown


Kurt Ballou. Andy Williams. Riff riff pummel pummel metaphor bam.
7Swans
To Be Kind


Is there anybody who doesn't worship this?
6Sun Kil Moon
Benji


TMI, but in the best way.
5Iceage
Plowing Into The Field Of Love


Great twist on their style, and unrelenting all the way through.
4Jack White
Lazaretto


Ran over Blunderbuss, then backed up over Blunderbuss's dead body, then ran over
Blunderbuss again.
3The Hotelier
Home, Like Noplace Is There


This album is a freakin' masterpiece, even if they don't know that "no place" is two
words.
2The War On Drugs
Lost In The Dream


Great production, emotion, instrumentation, and songwriting. It's the full package.
1The Wytches
Annabel Dream Reader


Brings back life into modern rock and roll. This record cuts the bullshit, and delivers
some of the best raw energy ever.
