These aren’t necessarily my favorite songs of 2014. They’re my favorite singles. There’s a difference; you can look it up. Don’t argue with me.
I’m not going to claim to be someone who deeply understands music at its roots.

I managed to listen to eighty-five new albums from 2014, and now that the year is over, I want to reflect on the twenty that stuck out to me the most. Here are my twenty favorite albums of 2014.
