A trawl through my favourite music of 2014, excluding anything I've worked on. From techno to jazz via rock, folk and a spot of Stravinsky; some old favourites like Aphex Twin and Shellac who I've been listening to for 20 years or more, some new artists and some that are just new to me; several artists based here in Manchester or at least with local connections; and some I've had the pleasure of working, making music or playing gigs with. The tracks are in the order they were added to my iTunes library as the year went on, so there's no particular thought involved in the sequence but it does mix things up a bit and throws up some neat segues. In the spirit of the old John Peel programme, if you don't like what you're hearing, hang on because something completely different will be along in a few minutes.
Unfortunately space here does not permit me to write any more about the tracks or even list what albums they're from, but you know how to use Google, don't you?
