Ode to the Nite Ratz Club is a perfect gutwrencher of a song. Love it as it hits the climax of "I would have never let you go..." and it races off into that stunning instrumental break.

So much to...

You're missing London off the tour dates for 22/05 - so happy I get to correct that! These kind of 10 year anniversary gigs never make it over to the UK. So hard to believe Chroma was nearly 10 years...

Awesome idea for a playlist! I'll be checking this out - very intrigued to find out who The Mountain Goats are.

Would love some new stuff from these guys soon. Partycrasher was a perfect punk rock album. I can't believe I'd been listening to Strung Out for 10+ years without knowing about A Wilhelm Scream until...

Oh this is gooooood. I somehow missed Television of Saints, but I'll be sure to keep my eye on this release. Glad he got himself a good home in No Sleep too.

It's been way too long. I'm so excited to hear what they sound like after such a lengthy gap between records.

I actually got The Lack Long After a few years ago with a Soundsupply drop and never got past the first few tracks. I've returned to it now though with the lyrics sheet in hand and it is one hell of...

Trophy Scars! I'm so surprised more staff members didn't get into that. Good to see it in yours though! Your list matches up fairly well with my own.

I'm really struggling to get into Moose Blood....

I'm unfamiliar with most of your list, but my top 2 matches up exactly with yours. Very interested in checking out nouns and Cloud Nothings.

5/10 match up with my own top 10. Nice list Ryan!

I'm sure you've stated your reasons elsewhere on the website, but how did you come to decide Pianos Become the Teeth take #1 spot? They've come in...

Ooo so you must be the staff member that got me into Noah Gundersen. I can't remember where I stumbled across you saying it would probably be your #1 of 2014, but it definitely prompted me to check...

Excellent news! I was only just revisiting their back catalogue the other day after watching Lone Survivor. Their OST for that film was so good, but made me crave another full length album.

I only found out about them when they were #1 in the mid-year list. Hell of an experience. I haven't read lyrics for any album as heavily as I have done for that one.

Loving the top 4 there Jason. Checking out the other 6 in your top 10 now as I'm not familiar with any of them.

Already pretty impressed by Sir Sly and The Lawrence Arms. I think your list last year...

If Copeland had been one place higher at #3 this would have matched up perfectly with my top 3 of the year. 3 absolutely incredible records there, and I love that there has been such widespread...

THIS IS TOO COOL. I love grinding up this kind of data with the last.fm API, but this is so cool now that I use Spotify as one of my main sources of listening to music.

An interesting trend that...

Saw them twice live last week and this song was definitely one of the stand outs in the two set lists of 25 awesome songs. Always helps a song when the crowd gets well into it and I don't think...

Head over heels with this song at the moment. This song helped me remember how much I used to love The Decemberists. I've now got tickets to see them next year and wishing away the days until the new...

One of my favourite albums this year. This song is a great choice for a single too. In all truth they could have picked any songs off that album and they would be a great choice for a single though.

This album is a great big slice of perfection. It took 8 years to get another 8 songs out of him, but all 8 of them are incredible. It's tearing me up that I wasn't able to get tickets for his London...

Armor For Sleep comments and a Pitchfork comment... Ugh.

Definitely not arguing with laying claim to The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi being the best concept album ever. I'm still bitter that they broke up after it. It's great that they ended on such a high, but...

Sorry - this is live? This is actually live? Her voice is insane.

Definitely checking these out based on this.
