Playlist: The Best Songs of 2014 So Far…

I don’t know how you feel, but for me the last few months have practically flown by… As they say, “time does fly when you’re getting drunk” (or something like that).  But since it’s now July, and there have already been so many great songs and albums released in the first half of this year (my personal 2014 “best of” already contains more songs than all of 2013 combined) I thought it would be as good a time as any to compile a playlist with the best songs of the year so far…

2014 has already seen the release of several great LP’s, from old favorites (like Beck, St. Vincent, and Jack White) to new ones too (Parquet Courts, Future Islands), and the second half of the year should be just as good, with new releases from Spoon, New Pornographers, Sia, Jenny Lewis and “Weird Al” Yankovic (just to name a few)…

This playlist includes some better-known tracks (or “singles” if you will…), like Sia’s “Chandelier” and Future Islands’ “Seasons (Waiting On You)” alongside some deeper album cuts like St. Vincent’s “Severed Crossed Fingers” (probably my favorite song of the year so far).

What are your favorite songs of the 2014? Let me know in the comments, on Twitter, or on our Facebook page.  Follow me on Spotify for even more playlists! You can also check out my Best of 2013 playlist if you have the time…
