    What are some of the best albums you heard in 2014?

    Post by Soma on Tue Nov 18, 2014 9:02 pm

    This isn't a countdown to the EoY list or anything like that. I just realised that I've barely listened to any albums from 2014, just Black Metal and Our Love and a bunch of other stuff I can hardly remember. I'm just scouring Members-Only Ninja Turtles Fan Forum for recommendations with dignity

    Love love love these:
    DJ Quik
    Harshest Realm
    Marshall Staxx
    Black Bananas
    Reigning Sound
    Ariel Pink
    An album my little bro made under his Bdphones monicker
    Leonard Cohen
    Run the Jewels

    Flying Lotus album is also insanely awesome, but I'm not smart enough to have listened to it a lot and come to love it as much as I probably should've by now.

    Sorta jazzed to hear the new Charli XCX when it comes out too.

    Would listen again:
    Reigning Sound
    Harshest Realm
    King Buzzo
    MOTO
    Scott Walker and Sunn
    Melvins
    The Growlers

    Will check out Ace Frehley, Nazareth and AC/DC if I remember to go to Walmart / spotify / slsk.

    Shellack and Steven Malkmus ones were not ones I would vote for.

    Ned Braden in particular but anybody, really...this album is sick:



    I believe there are multiple versions and that the full one has 27 tracks, fyi.

    Apologies in advance if the music doesn't live up to the cover art.

    I'm not buying something twice. Paves or Bruegel - can one of you guys upload this and give me an excuse to spring some cash for the vinyl?
    I've never heard this, but your words and that artwork are more than enough to make me confident about rolling the dice.

    you might need to adjust the track order. version I downloaded did not match the LP sequence.

    Code:

    Good luck getting the vinyl for <$100. I very luckily got a copy from Kristina a couple of months after it came out but I've only seen it for exorbitant resale since.

    Heard 1989 3-4 times in a row the other night while playing Settlers of Catan w/ another soon-to-be-not-childless married couple and drinking wine. Don't remember anything about the album except "did she say 'starbucks lovers'?," "Shake It Off," and it being generally not bad at all.

    It's called Love, Marriage & Divorce and it's one of the best R&B things I've heard this year.
