Yeah, as the title suggests this is where we put any decent tunes 2014 has to offer. I'll start with the new Mariah Carey, perfect way to do an RnB ballad, smooth, restrained, laid back. Perfect little tune.

Song of the year so far? So fucking chill and emotional. Like a Burial without as much crackle and rainfall and genius, still an amazing track though.

Chicago band that I just heard thanks to WXRT's local band showcase show "Local Anesthetic".

Digging this with a big shovel. Punk/post-punk a la Television/The Fall/The Strokes.

Get out your own shovel and dig it, yourself:


yes, i am in a band. i'll tell you about it sometime.

This was pretty fun. 

 

 

This is a bonus track on the upcoming limited edition re-release of 2010's  A Sucker For Pumps, but it finally hit last week, so I'm considering it a 2014 release. TiRon & Ayomari are actually one of my favorite artists going right now. They're a duo out of L.A. that straddle the line between hip hop and R&B with a lot of mid-90s and early neo-soul inflections. I just love their vibe all-around.

New m83 single 'I Miss You' from the 'Divergent' soundtrack.  Sounds like a mixture of last year's 'Oblivion' song and 'Midnight City' (mainly cause there's a sax!).

New How To Dress Well is amazing;

 

 

Impeccable production, deep, atmospheric, anyone who liked House Of Balloons or his last album Total Loss will dig this.

I've been obsessed with this song all day, ever since seeing this performance on Letterman

Future Islands - Seasons (Waiting on You): Amazing pop song, with an incredible performance by the lead singer.  Seriously, how does that voice come from that dude?!

Seriously, he's Al Green one second and the next second he's Lou Rawls. And then he becomes Beelzebub.

Pretty awesome.

Although he's a little distracting to look at.

I'm obsessed with the song/that performance.  I've listened to an mp3 rip of it, another live mp3 and the album version of the song something like 23 times since last night.

Thank you Caley for posting that Future Islands clip. Just a total transfixing, star/career-making performance. It's a bit like watching Peter Gabriel front New Order or something. I've watched it 3 times in a row now and watched the official video for the song. Now I'm gonna probably gonna buy this record, as well.

Yeah, I'd never heard of this music before --- very intense and inspired performance -- and a great singer and band, even without a guitar.

I'm deep down the Future Islands rabbit hole now.

Isn't it a bit shit? The frontman looks and moves like he is playing a 1980s Canal Street gay bar.

Well, as a live performance it falls short as he looks a bit ridiculous and it distracts from the music.

 

Someone on a comment board wrote this about them:

 

future islands are great if you are a white middle aged man, if you are an 18 yr old kid into music they're an embarrassing shite -

I like em cos im old

 

Which sums it up even thought it is a bit reductionist.

Exactly - the quote is saying that eighteen year old music fans are going to find this lame and embarassing, whereas older music fans might love it. The band/song does hark back to another era.
