14 for 14.

Oh, another list! You must be so excited, because clearly you haven’t been swamped by enough end of year lists already. As many as there are - it is a nice place to nit pick through the mass of releases over the last 12 months.

A substantial amount of music has delighted our ears on a daily basis this year - and we’d love for you to indulge in the beauty of them too. I personally fell in love with Kevin Morby’s sound this year, got down to Sinkane, got up to The Juan Maclean, went wild to King Gizzard, figured shit out with Angel Olsen, was calmed by Quilt, simply blown away by Adult Jazz, soundtracked my working day with Mazes - it was a brilliant year for music.

In no particular order (it is alphabetical) here are Deafen County’s 14 must listens of 2014:
