UK site Drowned in Sound’s Top 50 Albums of 2014

drowned in sound

UK music site Drowned in Sound is kinda the British equivalent of Pitchfork, albeit with a very strong community aspect to it. They just published their 50 Favourite Albums of 2014 list and while it contains many of the LPs we’ve been seeing on a lot of these lists, it’s a distinctly not-American point of view. Well, at least their #1. Check out the whole list below…
