A few humble writers’ opinions on the best sounds and compositions of the year.
We decided to see what all the hullabaloo with podcasts was about so we launched our own! Welcome to the very first episode of The Cellar Door Sessions. In our premiere episode, we talk about the first shows we ever saw and what bands you need to go see soon! Hesitation Wounds, The White Noise, My Enemies & I, and Follow My Lead are just some of the bands that we discuss with this one. So listen to us rant and hit us back with your opinions and your show experiences!
2014 was a huge year for music. We saw the first time a band from the post-hardcore scene put on a music festival that was entirely in, of and for the scene with A Day To Remember’s Self Help Fest. We watched the aftermath of My Chemical Romance’s breakup dissolve into glorified solo projects. The Bury The Hatchet Tour finally happened, marking a long awaited resolution between Escape the Fate and Falling in Reverse. And hell, even Taylor Swift gets a shout out since more hardcore-influenced bands covered her songs than ever before. So the real question is: what were the best musical moments of the year? Check out our editors’ picks for the Top Albums of 2014 in no particular order and let us know what some of your favorites were!
