Albums of 2014

Since the beginning of 2014 was a fuzzy cloud of puke, twitchy eyes, bloody lips and sciatic pain and the middle of 2014 was a baby haze of snuggles, sleep deprivation, The Hills and moving, I didn't get to really listen to any new music until I came back to work in October.  I made a playlist of these 3 albums and listen to it non-stop.
First is Banks' album Goddess. I don't normally listen to solo artists because I'm a snob, but I love her very much and when I had a cold last week, I pretended my sexy phlegm made me sound like her.
Read: It did not.
Favorite tracks
Someone New
Under the Table

Ok, fine.  This is a 2013 album, but I got behind during all the baby-havin.  This is Chvrches The Bones of What You Believe and I normally do NOT enjoy any kind of electronica, dream pop, yet I sincerely enjoy this album and her tiny, tiny Scottish voice.
Favorite tracks:
The Mother We Share

Royal Blood decided to name their album Royal Blood and I'm ok with it.  I describe them as The Black Keys meets Jack White.  Probably my favorite album of 2014
Favorite tracks:
Out of the Black
Loose Change
Ten Tonne Skeleton
I do have a "soundtrack" for the year, but it's actually quite poor and I don't enjoy it that much.  And I'll be listening to Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra for the rest of the year. 
And that damn Mariah Carey song.
