The Fashionably Late Top 60 of 2014 #24: Lorelle Meets The Obsolete

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: Lorelle Meets The Obsolete

WHAT: Chambers

WHEN: March 2014

WHERE: Captcha Records

WHY: I was introduced to the wonderful world of Lorelle Meets The Obsolete by some wonderful friends. Chambers is a seriously great listen, a technicolor swirl of dizzying, honeyed drones and waves of intoxicating fuzz. It's the kind of music that can turn your mind to slush, make time slow down, and make everything feel pretty dang good. If this slipped by you last year, there's no time like the present to pounce on Chambers.    

My jams: "What's Holding You?, "Dead Leaves," "I Can't Feel The Outside," "Music for Dozens," "Grieving," "Sealed Scene," "Thoughts About Night Noon"
