Muruch’s 2014 Top Albums Playlist

Muruch’s Top Albums of 2014

It’s that time of year again! This year brought us several astoundingly brilliant releases (especially my #1-5), a shockingly pleasant surprise from a formerly disliked artist (#18?!?) and even more shocking disappointments from formerly beloved ones (Charlie XCX, Foxygen, Leela James, Lia Ices, Gerard Way). Here are the 20 albums I enjoyed most this year. Click the album titles for my original reviews. And you can listen to the albums in this Spotify playlist.

The Strypes: Snapshot

Time for another awesome Irish band alert! The Strypes are four teenage lads from Cavan, Ireland. Their debut album, Snapshot, has a bluesy garage rock sound somewhere between early Beatles and Stones and all those early 2000s “The” bands – The Strokes, The Vines, The Libertines, etc. In other words, I love it! Fave tracks: “Mystery Man, “Blue Collar Jane,” “Angel Eyes” and their cover of the Willie Dixon/Bo Diddley song “You Can’t Judge a Book By Its Cover.”
