Albums of 2014

For many, 2014 seemed to be a little disappointing for new music. We had no blockbuster albums from major artists aside from Taylor Swift, so there was much more work involved for obtaining new music. Only two bands on this list have been featured in my previous top-tens, three albums are debuts, and two are from artists that have been making music for decades and are now hitting their stride. Thanks for reading this year and I hope you find something new to enjoy!

Jonny Greenwood - "Spooks"

In 2006, Radiohead began playing a song called "Spooks" on tour. That song didn't make it onto 2007's In Rainbows or 2011's The King of Limbs. It did, however, make it onto the soundtrack to Inherent Vice.

Sleater-Kinney - "Surface Envy"

Riot Grrrl pioneers, and general badasses, Sleater-Kinney are set to return this January with their first new album since 2005's The Woods. Two songs in and they're proving that they're just as great as ever!
