**** it, I also want to add Post War Glamour Girl's Pink Fur to my list. I helped release it so am massively biased, but even if I wasn't involved it'd still be my most listened to album this year.
We can't swear now?!

The album I most enjoyed in 2014, but was released in 2013, but didn't discover until early 2014 = Protomartyr - No Passion All Technique
Looking forward to releases by Father John Misty, Jose Gonzalez, Lord Huron, possibly another 2 Ty Segall albums, Moon Duo, Two Gallants, TTMOE, and so many more
Its hard to pick a performance of the year.... notable performances go to.... Ought, Slint, ESG, Cate Le Bon, Eagulls, Mike Watt, King Khan, The Sonics, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Chameleons Vox, Jason Isbell, Rose Windows, Yob, Earthless, Ty Segall, Angel Olsen and more....
Performance I'd waited years to see, and it fulfilled - SLINT
I was most excited about Caribou, but then found I just haven't taken to it this time. Its def not the last album.
Most disappointing album - Merchandise - what has happened there? 4AD? Its gone way wrong sorry.
Theres also way too much more, but....
No love for the Scott Walker/Sunn O))) record on here? I was incredibly excited when it was announced and wasn't disappointed.
Good stuff also from Earth, Pallbearer, Hookworms, Grouper, Tindersticks, Sunwolf, Melvins, Oren Ambarchi and A Winged Victory for the Sullen.
And the Shellac was a return to form.
This is ace - thanks for the recommendation!

I need to pick the Scott Walker/Sunn O))) up still, its on a shortlist of things I still need to get. So much out between Sept-November it was silly!
