stereogum's 100 most anticipated records of 2014

there's some good stuff here - grimes, fleet foxes, beck, angel olsen, the men, my morning jacket, kanye, spoon, real estate, joanna newsom... 

if i'm being honest, though, the beginning of every year looks like it's going to be massive. by december of next year, i'll be surprised if even a quarter of this list sticks to the ribs. still, it's fun to scroll through and imagine what the next year will sound like.

mountain man : around and around (john denver cover)

this band's debut still gets a lot of spins on the turntable around the brown bear cave. rec'd if you like harmonies, appalachia.

jose gonzalez : step out (stream)

a pretty fun, orchestral, and uncharacteristic jose gonzalez track off of the secret life of walter mitty soundtrack. like m83 meets of monsters and men or something.

the war on drugs : red eyes (stream)

this baby's got some wheels on it. sounds a bit like kurt vile covering neon bible-era arcade fire.

angel olsen : forgiven/forgotten (video)

the amazing spider-man 2 (trailer)

arctic monkeys : you're so dark (stream)

am was absent from stereogum, spin, and pitchfork's "best album of 2013" lists. and i don't understand why. especially when they knock out b-sides better than most band's a-sides.
