Tiny Mix Tapes posted their Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2014, and as TMT lists usually are, it’s a pretty eccentric one with a lot of stuff that wasn’t making everyone’s list this year. Sure you’ve got Grouper, Andy Stott, Sun Kil Moon, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, Arca, Pharmakon, Perfume Genius, Ariel Pink, Swans and FKA twigs, but you’ve also got Ninos Du Brasil, Gem Jones, James Ferraro, Call Super, C L E A N E R S, Kevin Drumm & Jason Lescalleet and more.

Read their entertaining intro and commentary on the albums here, and browse their full list below…
