Best Albums of 2014

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.

Under Color of Official Right Protomartyr
If punk is dead, no one bothered to tell Detroit four-piece Protomartyr, who specialize in reverb-drenched power cords, restless drumming, free-flowing baselines, and Joe Casey's deadpan mutterings. On Under Color of Official Right, they've located a sweet spot between harmony and cynicism, resulting in a record that has a bit more on it's mind than moshing and bile-spewing. The new punk revolution starts now.
