Like most years, 2014 has been quite an interesting year in music. This year saw the release of many amazing albums and songs.
The Foo Fighters released Sonic Highways (an album recorded in 10 different American cities coupled with an awesome TV show on HBO). The Black Keys released a new album, Blue (which did not live up to many of their fans expectations). Besides this there were also new albums from alt-J, The Pretty Reckless, Chevelle, Slash, Seether and Rival Sons (who performed at Oppikoppi this year). Bring Me The Horizon also released Drown (a single from their upcoming album) and Royal Blood stormed onto the scene with their debut album.
On the local front, Jeremy Loops finally released his highly anticipated album, Trading Change, Bittereinder brought us Skerm (their third studio album), Jack Parow released Nag Van Die Lang Pette (a double album featuring brand new tracks and acoustic versions of his older songs), Beatenberg released their debut album, Taxi Violence celebrated 10 years in the SA Music industry with Tenfold, Dan Patlansky mesmerized us with Dear Silence Thieves and William Welfare brought us Shunt.
