My Favorite Releases of 2014

It’s been a year since I last posted here. I guess my blogging days are over for now. But I’ll continue to use this for my favorite releases list. I went a little bananas this year and, after listening to 260 new albums, I whittled the list down to 45. I figured — what the heck — 2014 was a good year for new music so let me overshare.

Alphabetically listed below, these were the albums I found myself reaching for several times this year. So much good stuff out there but this is where I landed most often. Happy Holidays!
