BIYE #030: the best of 2014. 26 tracks, 90+ minutes, turn it up. life gets crazy and i get lazy, i don't make new year's resolutions, but i really would like to get back to a more regular schedule of posting these things. i hope you love guitars as much as i do.
like i said with last year's round-up, numbered best-of lists aren't really my bag. if i had to tell you one album that i listened to more than any other in 2014, it would undoubtedly be total control's "typical system", though "drop" by thee oh sees and "manipulator" by ty segall were close behind it. reissues i loved (among others) included "flashbacks & dream sequences" by the moles, "everybody knows we got nowhere" by the heads, the "no energy" box set from unwound, yo la tengo's "extra painful", and crime's "murder by guitar".
buy these albums. go see these bands and pick up their merch, support these fine record labels, and, as always, thanks for listening. xx
