After an all-lady lineup for our last edition, we now cue an all-dude revue. Still shuffling through some of the best from 2014 here. In a few weeks I’ll unveil my choices for personal faves of the year. Until then, let’s round ’em up.
No one-trick pony here. The authors of “Pumped Up Kicks” deliver a kickin’ collection of catchy pop-rock.
I think the cover speaks volumes. A fine throwback to old-school, outlaw country.
Arguably Petty’s best album in 15 years. Certainly a must for guitar lovers.
I will always recommend OK Go. Luckily, their new album justifies my faith in them.
(The group held a contest to make a video for their song “I’m Not Through.” Below is my favorite entry.)
