The Fashionably Late Top 60 of 2014 #50: Kissing Cousins

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: Kissing Cousins

WHAT: In With Them EP

WHEN: December 2014

WHERE: Velvet Blue Music

WHY: I couldn’t help but include the In With Them EP on my list. After all, it’s four songs full of seductive, smoky rock incantations that both cajole and confront, wrapping serpentine around your senses. To me, it’s the sound of fog rolling in, followed in the distance by a tempest. A haunting effort from Kissing Cousins.

My jams: All of them
