daughters ~ wild beasts

thus far, my favorite album of 2014

lovely

more please

the lines i crossed for you

haven’t been this excited about an album in a long time

just hold on we’re going home

on repeat

13-for-13

13. blood orange ~ cupid deluxe

image

a perfect mix of 80s atmospherics and longing.  

must listen = chamakay

~

12. palma violets ~ 180

image

confident enough to rip oasis and the clash. good enough that it doesn’t matter. 

must listen = best friends

~

11. toro y moi ~ anything in return

image

a collective mash of funk, electronic, chill. night-on-the-town music.

must listen = so many details

~

10. nylo ~ indigo summer

image

a flawless mixture of heartache and fuck you.  

must listen = breakfast at tiffany’s 

~

9. phosphorescent ~ muchacho

image

warmth that is equivalent to a smooth bourbon or excellent wine. this album seeps in deeper and deeper with each listen.

must listen = song for zula

~

8. volcano choir ~ repave

image

justin vernon continues his post-bon iver hot streak. wonderful textures and  cascades that capture the imagination.  

must listen = comrade 

~

7. sky ferreira ~ night time, my time

image

an addictive album from front to back. sky  nailed the “small pop” genre better than anyone this year. get ready to sing at the top of your lungs.

must listen = you’re not the one

~

6. chvrches ~ the bones of what you believe

image

a perfect mixture of dance and hooks. the flawless production and heartfelt lyrics equal sugary perfection.

must listen = we sink

~

5. the national ~ trouble will find me

image

after consecutively releasing three wonderful albums. it is hard to believe that the national may be just hitting their stride with their fourth. however, one listen erases all doubts. this is a band in their prime. 

must listen = i need my girl 

~

4. majical cloudz ~ impersonator 

image

one of the most unique albums i’ve come across. a hypnotic journey that sucks you into each one of its crevices.  some albums are meant to be played in the sunshine. not this one.  

must listen = childhood’s end

~

3. vampire weekend ~ modern vampires of the city

image

vampire weekend have made two fabulous albums. this one surpasses them in every conceivable manner. the production is lush and impeccable. the lyrics draw from every corner of the earth; and yet, a cohesive album has emerged and is nearly perfect in every way. well done boys.

must listen = hannah hunt 

~

2. kanye west ~ yeezus

image

fearless. incomparable. peerless. hip hop is dead.  yeezy murdered them all. 

must listen = send it up 

~

1. haim ~ days are gone

image

i fell in love with this album over and over again this year.  these three talented women channeled their influences (i.e. the eagles, fleetwood mac) into a harmonized, pop gem that is infectious.  it’s not groundbreaking, provocative, or gratuitous. it’s just wonderful.

must listen = the wire
