Top 25 Albums of 2014

Top 25 2014

Well 2014 has been a great year for new music. Of course I say that every year but it’s true every year too.

I hope I don’t need to introduce Monobrow. If I do, they are an instrumental band that plays stoner rock in its highest form. This is some of the best music you’ll ever hear. They just released a new album 2 days ago called Black Horse. Like the rest of their catalog, the album is a name your price. Vinyl is available too.
