Released: February       Genre: Singer-songwriter / folk       Metacritic Rating: 72 There’ve been plenty of releases from the singer-songwriter genre which I’ve enjoyed this year, but there haven’t been any that I’ve enjoyed anywhere near as much as Noah Gundersen’s debut LP.

Top 10 of 2014, Number 3: Somos – Temple Of Plenty

Released: March          Genre: Rock       Metacritic Rating: N/A The second release from Tiny Engines to make my top five records of the 2014, Somos’ Temple Of Plenty never really felt like an obvious inclusion.

Released: April       Genre: Indie Rock       Metacritic Rating: N/A A lot of people have been talking about Lonely The Brave this year, and rightly so, but fewer have been talking about Fatherson, which is a shame.
