Here is a closer look at what made up our top 10 albums of 2014 and the staffers who contributed.
Plowing is not just some of the best punk; it is very well one of the best albums of 2014.
Alix finds the duo with another batch of these sheeny shiny electropop tunes.
Black Moon Spell is the latest offering from bedroom garagepop wunderkind Kyle Thomas. This album finds Thomas running wild with the 70s glam sound found on his earlier albums. Fuzzed out and poptacular, Black Moon Spell bops along from tune to tune with catchy choruses and pop hooks jammed into anywhere that’ll fit. Much like Thomas’s last two albums, Black never takes itself too seriously and approaches its glam idols with irreverence. He likes to toe the line of imitation closely, as the vocal similarity to Marc Bolan gets pretty uncanny at times, and some of those guitar riffs could be copy/pasted right off Mott The Hoople or Ziggy Stardust. I think a bit is…
Triumph over trial.
