My Year-End Lists Of 2014

Posted on | December 29, 2014 | No Comments

If 2013 was the year I found the beat, 2014 was back to basic Rock N’ Roll.

I knew The Lees Of Memory’s debut album would be #1 on my list.

Even from way back in January and definitely when it dropped back in September. There’s not one thing frontman/singer-songwriter John Davis as ever put out that I do not enjoy the hell out of.

The man’s a musical genius.

DFA 1979: the return on record no one expected but damn if they did deliver wall to wall bangers on their sophomore album.

Owen Pallett recorded the prettiest album of the year.

The other Sisyphus in my top 5 with Sufjan Stevens in the lead with rapper Serengeti and beatmaker Son Lux at his side, made my favorite electro/rap/sad bastard album of the year.

Foo Fighers: I’ll never quit you. While not your best album, you still cranked out awesome melodies and Arena Rock fist pumpers that made me listen to your “Sonic Highways” over and over again.

January 1st is when y’all come back to download my massive, gargantuous 2014 songs compilation.

Most if not all the picks you see below will be included so y’all come back now, ya hear?

Top 3 Shows Of 2014:

Failure @ Irving Plaza ( May 29th )
Death From Above 1979 @ Metropolis ( December 4th )
Tween @ Baby’s All Right ( October 23rd )

May 29th in New York City may have been my favorite day this year.

Seeing Failure live for the first time, A band who were number #1 on my bucket list to see before the big dirt nap just filled me with utter joy.

Ken Andrews, Greg Edwards and Kellii Scott were just so damn amazing. The sound was crystal clear. I could hear every note, every lyric sung.

The icing on this beautiful cake were the 2 new songs we got in
conjuncture with this reunion tour and the possible new LP that’s
being worked on.

My Fav Films Of 2014:

Boyhood
Birdman (Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance)
The Guest
Nightcrawler
Whiplash

Honorable Mention:

Dead Snow: Red Vs. Dead
Enemy
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Interstellar
John Wick
Obvious Child
Predestination
The Raid 2: Berandal
Top Five
Under The Skin

Documentaries:

Jodorowsky’s Dune
Life After Death From Above 1979
Nas: Time Is Illmatic
Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton

Such an amazing year for movies.

Richard Linklater doing it again with Boyhood and this time,
he may actually be recognised by The Oscars for the truly amazing
director
that he is.

Birdman: Michael Keaton. Holy shit bro. Do more of that.

The Guest: Homage to 80’s and early 90’s crazy psycho movies. Think The Terminator meets The Hand That Rocks The Cradle combined with a killer “Drive” like soundtrack with the blonde guy from Downton Abbey. This should have sucked hard but it does not.

Quite the opposite.

Nightcrawler: The Gyllenhaal as never been better. Holy crap is he ever creepy in this. Also serves as a great mirror to the state of our crazy media culture today and it’s thirst for blood.

Whiplash: A Jazz movie about a drummer who wants to be the best and will do anything to get there. The most unlikely psychological thriller I’ve seen in year.

Miles teller is on his way to great things.
