From Jungle to Jamie XX, my soundtrack of 2014.
1) Jamie XX – Girl
Toe-tappin’ goodness. Rolling Stone did a better review on it than I ever could.
Available at iTunes: http://smarturl.it/sleepsoundi
Girl / Sleep Sound was out 5 May 2014 on Young Turks.
2) Telegram – Follow
This was actually released in 2013, but hey.
Available at iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/follow-single/id731957127
3) Hollie Cook – Tiger Balm
Tropical. Pop. Reggae. Dub.
I did a review on her album ‘Twice’ earlier this year.

4) Jungle – Time
The video (directed by J from Jungle & Oliver Hadlee Pearch) was cool and not what I was expecting.
I reckon this is the strongest track off the album.
This, or ‘Julia’.

5) Cash+David – Funn
In October we found out Tim Ross (Cash) and 24-year-old Liz Lawrence (David) were the masterminds behind this electro-pop duo.

6) White Fence – Before He Met Her (Decomposing Lime)
A slice of psychedelia from Tim Presley’s project ‘White Fence’.
7) Flyte – We Are The Rain
Britain. And pop.

I advise you go buy their EP now.

9) Sia – Chandelier
In pretty much every ‘best of’ article I’ve seen. You can see why. And that video…

10) Run The Jewels – Blockbuster Night Part 1
I actually found this tune when researching my top 10.
Get high, rescue a cat.
