Jeremy’s best albums of 2014 (so far)- countdown

5. Maxïmo Park- Too Much Information

Good old fashioned British indie rock and roll. My hoomin says he used to date a girl who lived in Brixton and loved Maxïmo Park. He dumped her because she smoked too much.

4. Morrissey- World Peace Is None of Your Business

A very strong new album from Morrissey- great tunes, well produced, and he’s in fine voice too. Just when people thought his star was waning, he comes out punching. The boy’s done good.

Fact: he likes his tea very weak (click here).

3. Wild Beasts- Present Tense

Beautiful melodies sang (mostly) in an almost ethereal falsetto voice. Deserves to sell by the bucketload (but probably won’t).

2. Damon Albarn- Everyday Robots

If, like me, you thought Blur’s ballads were some of their best works (see here) then you will adore this album. Achingly beautiful.

1. The War On Drugs- Lost In the Dream

Take 3 parts Springsteen and 2 parts Sonic Youth. Add a drizzle of electric-era Dylan and you have the best album of 2014 paws down. Download, delete and download again. Just amazing.

  1. If I had any clue at all about 21st Century music I’m sure I’d agree with you, but I’m stuck in the 80s (and I wasn’t even bearn till 1995!) So I have no clue who or what you are talking about. That said, I’ll bet this is a great blog, as always!!

    Now, where’s the chocolate?
