Not much blogging these days, but I’ll do my best to keep my end-of-the-year traditions. One of them is the Year in Music, so let’s sum up 2014 and introduce you to a few new artist you might not have heard of before.
According to last.fm, my top 49 artists for 2014 were: Biffy Clyro, Lonely The Brave, Nils Petter Molvær, Kent, Lissie, Eminem, Coldplay, Ben Howard, Tycho, Ed Sheeran, Moddi, Pink Floyd, Bastille, Boards of Canada, Solar Fields, Adam Fielding, Bonobo, Nubah, The Glitch Mob, OnklP & De Fjerne Slektningene, Bush, Skambankt, Jon Hopkins, The War on Drugs, 36, Cinnamon Chasers, Rhian Sheehan, Snakadaktal, Tomáš Dvořák, Chrome Sparks, Aydio, Clean Bandit, Sync24, Koan, Hammock, Kvelertak, Todd Terje, Shingo Nakamura, London Grammar, Pearl Jam, The American Dollar, Clubfeet, Ellie Goulding, Matthew Good, John Mayer, Clint Mansell, Pharrell Williams, Rise Against, Northcape.
Not many big changes since last year. My taste in music is mostly the same, with Scottish heroes Biffy Clyro being the number one band in 2014, just like they were in 2013. The electronica genre has been pushed back a little, with the first artist in that genre being Tycho. This is not entirely correct, though. I’ve been listening to Soundrop’s ambient channel a lot at work, but there’s a huge span of artists, so it’s hard for them to make it to the top of any lists.
