The Fashionably Late Top 60 of 2014 #46: Dead Fame

2014 was quite a year. Not the best of years, on a personal level, but a rather good year from a music standpoint. Having given a listen to record after record after record from the year that was, I’ve pulled together a list of favorites, finding it next to impossible to whittle the list down any further beyond 60 (I tried). In this group of 60 you’ll find records from old, faithful friends, upstart newcomers, and even a headscratcher or two. You’ll probably see some records that were a Big Deal not on this list. I either didn’t bite or didn’t buy the hype. I’m pleased as punch with this list, and I hope you’ll come across something that might have otherwise passed you by. And so, without further ado, my favorite records of 2014.

WHO: Dead Fame

WHAT: Vicious Design EP

WHEN: April 2014


WHY: "The Vicious Design EP, is a deliciously dark, seriously danceable assault on the senses. Titillating with their knob-twiddling and taut, spiky riffs, the band is anchored by pitch-perfect and somewhat theatrically crooning vocals. This is a band that’s looking like they mean business."

My jams: “Joan Crawford,” “My Body, My Fool,” “Girl Undone,” “Lift,” “My Body, My Fool (Xiu Xiu Remix)"
