Top 50 Albums of 2014 Part I (50-26)

50 2014

Like most years, 2014 was a great year for

underground music. While most of this diverse

list features bands from the DIY punk scene, etc.,

there were a few bigger bands that snuck onto

the list as well. This list has everything from punk

to emo, ska to alt-country and college rock. The

list also spans the globe with entries from the USA,

Canada, the UK and Australia.


Below is part one of my list, which is albums

26-50. The rest of the list will be released soon.

There are definitely records that did not make the

list solely based on the fact that I didn't spend enough

time with them this year.


I should also mention that some of these records are

on bandcamp as "pay what you want" downloads,

so I've tried to link to these below when possible.


If you want to tell me how wrong or right my list is,
