Mid-2014 Best Of Albums

Recommended Posts

I really enjoyed our year end recap thread. I discovered a bunch of things that I hadn't heard! What has everyone really been stoked on the first six months of the year?

Here is my top ten thus far (in no particular order):

1. Augustines - Augustines

2. The Afghan Whigs - Do The Beast

3. Jessica Lea Mayfield - Make My Head Sing

4. Cloud Nothings - Here And Nowhere Else

5. Young Fathers - Dead

6. Cheap Girls - Famous Graves

7. OFF! - Wasted Years

8. Primitive Man - P // M

9. The Cutthroats 9 - Dissent

10. Godflesh - Decline And Fall

Not alot of Hip-Hop that has done it for me so far. That Riff Raff record was stink stink. I'm patiently awaiting the A$AP MOB record.

I actually like the new mastodon....but not one of the best for this year.

Agreed. I listened to it twice yesterday. The "hey ho rock and roll" chant kinda made my stomach churn, however, it still has some really interesting parts.

So far I've been really digging (in sorta order).

Praise – Lights Went Out

Beach Slang – Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken?

Patton Oswalt – Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time

Nothing - Guilty of Everything

The Lawrence Arms – Meetropole

Against Me – Transgender Dysphoria Blues

The Menzingers – Rented World

Not out yet, but really looking forward to:

Dikembe - Mediumship

Cayetana - Nervous Like Me

Restorations - LP3

The Holy Mess - Comfort in the Discord

Prawn - Kingfisher

Long story short, if a band is from Philadelphia or on Tiny Engines record, I'm probably into it.

- - - Updated - - -

St. Vincent – St. Vincent

I finally saw the Nirvana Rock N Roll Hall of Fame induction with the girl from this band singing with them. It was kinda cool, and I'd like to check them out.

Against Me – Transgender Dysphoria Blues

Came to post this, too late I guess! Saw them last year at Riot Fest, and one of the bands im most looking forward to this year as well.

Along with fucking Slayer. Duh.

I hear Primus has an all right bass player, too...

    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
