List ‘O the Week: Best Songs of 2014 (so far)

St Vincent

I don’t often post album reviews here mostly because I believe albums take time to endear themselves to me. So instead of posting a ‘best albums’ list for records that have only been out for a few months, here are my favourite songs from the first half of 2014. As with my list last year, I’m limiting myself to one track per album/EP/single in order to increase diversity.

27. The War On Drugs – Eyes To The Wind
