Have you been thinking “not enough riffs about this year.” May I introduce you to Dead Now and their absolute onslaught of churning, boiling noise?
Sometimes a great man comes along – a true inspiration to us all. He’s suave, witty, intelligent, handsome and charming. Also, there’s Jack Murray, who has selected his top 10 albums of 2014. Hey, he did it for 2012 and 2013, so there’s no reason to deny him the chance of sharing his knowledge, wisdom and bark-related puns with the rest of the readers. Woof, etc.
Let’s face it, there’s not going to be any more good albums released this year now. Well, that’s the impression that I get. I’ll stop with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones puns now and crack on. Below are my top 10 albums of 2014, plus a selection of “nearly made the cut, but are still really good albums that you should listen to.” Enjoy.
Tilts (big pinball fans) have been kicking around for a few years, having funded their first album (Self-Titled) through a Kickstarter campaign; decided to repeat this success with their second effort, Cuatro Hombres (Four Men) achieving well over what they needed – by $2,500 – top work guys! Cuatro Hombres is 10 tracks of bursting, vibrant, raucous, beer-can-smashing rock ‘n roll.
