Anyone got any suggestions? The War on Drugs album? Kate Tempest? The latest Down EP? The Beck album? Prog? Jazz? Whatever.

I was thinking about this and realised I'd only bought myself five albums that came out in 2014: Indie Cindy, Pixies; Classics, She & Him; Rave Tapes, Mogwai; Syro, Aphex Twin; and Beak>> Bonus Album +, Beak>, and two of those are effectively compilations. I'd have to go for Rave Tapes as my favourite.

I'd go for "Too Much Information" by Maximo Park and "1989" by Taylor Swift. I have eclectic tastes!

I did buy the deluxe edition of 1989, complete with fake polaroids, but it was a gift.

For once I've either had good access or been given several albums released in 2014:

Peter Christopherson - Time Machines II. Appropriately (for the title) released 3 and a bit years after his death. Lots of ambient sounds designed to create temporal slips. It didn't work for me like the original Time Machines album, but there's some interesting stuff on it nonetheless.

Perfume Genius - Too Bright. Proud, angry, queer bloke writes songs that have me in tears. My sister bought me a signed cd. Well pleased.

O'Hooley & Tidow - The Hum. A folk duo, one of whom played piano with Rachel Unthank & The Winterset a few years back. Almost painfully good, layered songs.

Seth Lakeman - Word Of Mouth. Dartmoor folkie's project collecting modernish stories from the South West. Excellent, his best album for years imho and includes a second disc with interviews on it.

(Edited to remove The Full English: great album, but actually released in 2013. D'oh!)

My album of the year was the debut effort by Arc Iris, the new project of Jocie Adams from the Low Anthem. Manages to be both quirky and beautiful at the same time.

Julie - I heard O'Hooley and Tidow for the first time recently. Lovely songs.

NeilW: I would hope the O'H & T album would be at least nominated in this year's Folk Awards.

As for the other stuff mentioned in this thread - I'm familiar to some extent with most of the bands/artists. Kate Tempest especially is a very clever and funny lyricist and it's good to see her getting recognition for it.
