albums

2014 is pretty much over, so we’ve put together our top 40 albums of the year list for our Dec/Jan double issue.

So you might have seen the below list in Loud And Quiet 64 already, but maybe you haven’t heard all of the records we’ve enjoyed so much this year. That’s where this playlist comes in, giving you a taste of what made these bands appear on our list above so many others.

Unfortunately, we are missing Iceage, King Creosote and Scott Walker and Sunn O))) on this mix, but, then, that’s the peril of Soundcloud. Go check those guys out as soon as you’ve streamed the 37 below.
