The Fashionably Late Top 60 of 2014 #21: The KVB

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: The KVB

WHAT: Out of Body EP

WHEN: June 2014

WHERE: A Records

WHY: It's impossible to listen to Out of Body and not immediately get why I love it so much. The Brit duo behind The KVB put together six songs overflowing with that gorgeous, gloomy lo-fi, psych-laden shoegazing purr that I just can't get enough of, and to my ears it's nothing short of divine. Definitely a must-listen, and a great taste of what's to come on their forthcoming long player.        

My jams: All of it
