Top 25 Albums of 2014



As I reflect on 2014 as it winds to a close, it is

easy to say that it was a good year for underground

music. There were a lot of bands who put out

amazing debut albums and bands who have been

around for a while continuing to craft excellent



This year was particularly hard for the podcast,

as I have was not able to put out nearly as many

episodes as I would have liked. Between working

a full time job and being a husband and father to two

young boys, I struggle to find enough hours in the day

to create. My sincere hope and resolution is that

this will change in 2015, as I genuinely love making

each episode and sharing great tunes and interviews

with you.


Anyway, without any further adieu, here are my top

25 albums of 2014. Happy New Year!
