2014 List Noise

COAPTA screesnhotTis the season for best-of-2014 lists.

In the din and clamor of indulgently long staff-list best-ofs on Pitchfork, artist lists on Boomkat, and self-important blogger bloviating, I thought I’d get in on some of the latter action and add to the noise with my own little rundown of stuff I liked.

You can find further ramblings concerning some of the titles below in my latest Confessions of a Part-Time Audiophile post. Again, I’d like to thank Scot at COAPTA for making space for my writing, and for his continued, gracious, linking-back to this blog.

Happy holidays and thanks for reading. Here’s to a peaceful, productive, kinder and gentler 2015.
