Best Music of 2014

This is the 2014 update to my ‘best music of’ list that I do every Decemeber after another year of new sounds. This year was highlighted with seeing more live shows than years past, a trend I will continue as we move into 2015. See you at the show, I’ll be in the middle of the floor about 13 back, and ya, I’m ready for another - I’ll get the next one, thanks.
