Best 10 Tracks of 2014

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’.

Sonic Cathedral – BandCamp.

7) Flyte – We Are The Rain

Britain. And pop.

Available via paradYse records or iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/we-are-the-rain-single/id835602144 

8) Tom Misch & Carmody – Release You 

Seen here performing for Mahogany Sessions, you can listen to the original below.

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.
