2014 may not have been a year where something comes out of nowhere or a particular album grabs the cultural zeitgeist while at the same time appealing to my sensibilities, but it did reconfirm certain artists who have crafted terrific work in the past as well as introduced me to a few under the radar gems. So, without further ado, I entreat you to indulge in the auditory smorgasbord that is my favorite 25 albums of 2014! The year has come and gone, but the music lingers.

|It's Album Time Todd Terje|
|This daft, synth-laden debut from Norwegian producer Todd Terje is the year's most infectious record; a brew of quirky jazz, lounge, and 80's-influenced electronica that's both kitschy and highly modern. Roxy Music's Bryan Ferry even comes in for a ballad. Enough said.|
