Diggin’ This: My Top 10 Albums of 2014


It’s increasingly tough to land on a top 10 definitive list of favorite albums, especially when music nowadays is not only released as a collection of 11-ish songs, but more often than not as drips, leaks, EPs, loosies, surprise LPs, mixtapes, continuous mixes, and one-to-one live rapping.





Nevertheless, 2014 was a great, great year for music, no matter what the release format.



Here’s my Top 10 Albums of 2014.


10. Kelis – Food


9. Mndsgn – Yawn Zen

7. Flying Lotus – You’re Dead!


6. SBTRKT – Wonder Where We Land 


5. Shabazz Palaces – Lese Majesty


4. Melanie De Biasio – No Deal


3. Kindness – Otherness
