2014 Year In Review
This was 2014 in music: Punk rock about gender identity. Americana folk from Sweden. The biggest pop smash of the year, from a former country ingenue. In wrapping up the year’s mainstream and indie releases, I don’t want to inadvertently slight the best Norwegian black metal or Andean pan flute albums of the year. So instead, here are Austin360’s 50 Albums Worth Listening To, for one reason or another. (I did listen to loads of non-pan-flute tunes this year.)
