The Best of 2014 Lists That We Recommend

     This post identifies other blogs that assembled “Best of 2014” lists, where we benefitted from those lists. After reviewing as many of the “Best of 2014” posts as we could find, we have a better appreciation for what 2014 had to offer. The Indie Obsessive collection would include more than 62 songs if we were to restart, but we are happy with the collection as it stands (and somewhat proud of certain discoveries, such as The Mispers).

     Here are the lists we recommend:
    1. Of course, the Indie Obsessive list is recommended. It starts at:

     2. Music for Ants
        Top 25 Albums -
     The top album on the list was from Spoon.

         Top 50 Songs -

     3. Pitchfork 
        Top 100 songs -
        Top 50 Albums - - The 2014 album of War on Drugs was ranked third.
