THERE’S NO SUCH THING as too many records: a truth borne out by MOJO’s second instalment of Best New Albums from the ongoing cavalcade of quality that is 2014. From the imperious rock groove of The Black Keys and atmospheric pop probing of Damon Albarn to the dreamy bedroom indie of Mac DeMarco and mindblowing world-psych of Kasai Allstars, it’s MOJO’s usual eclectic, inspirational universe of life-improving sounds. Imagine a party where Jack White and Neil Young shared nibbles with Lee Fields and the Sleaford Mods? Yeah – nuts.
After publishing our 1st Quarter selection in late March, you asked us to keep you updated on the music that MOJO rated the best of the year so far. So we've obliged. Hope you find something that floats your boat...
NB. The lists are in alphabetical order, not ranked-in-terms-of-relative-brilliance. But please do buttonhole us on Facebook and Twitter (@MOJOmagazine) about anything you think we’ve overrated or undervalued. Or even – madness, I know! – something you think we’ve got exactly right.
