20 Favourite Albums of the Year | 20 – 11


Across a range of styles and sounds, from slow burners and engaging techno full-lengths to immediate UK cult classics and the most fucked-up genre combinations to date, 2014 had sparks going off across the board. While 2013 had only a handful of records that truly grabbed us and refused to let go (Arctic Monkey‘s AM, Disclosure‘s Settle, FoalsHoly Fire and Jon HopkinsImmunity), this year we were inundated. No offence 2013, but 2014 had you caught wanking to Hentai.

There’s a short Spotify playlist with tunes from all of the 20-11 best albums of 2014 too – oh we do spoil you.
