2014 In Review...

So, it's that time of year again. That time to scrounge and scramble to listen to all music that was put out in the past year that you never got around to initially, but have to now properly construct your end-of-year best-of list. So, to make life easier, I figured I'd compile all the links for albums released this year in one massive post. This way if there's anything you missed or want to revisit, bam, it's right here.

  1. Great post. Prawn and Alcoa won me over this year. And of course the new trophy scars album

  2. Thank you so much! :)) should check out new Gates full length album "Bloom & Breathe", it's really amazing, they toured with like half of the bands from the list above, but they stand out a lot with usage of post-rockish soundscapes etc.

  3. No Baptists - Bloodmines?

  4. didnt joyce manor release a split this year?

    1. Can't believe I forgot that one, it's up now!
