2014 in Review: The Good, The Bad, The WTH?

2014 has been one heck of a year, to put it mildly. We’ve laughed, cried, and been furious and vastly disappointed. There has been good music, and there has been awful music.

Once again this year, there were a massive amount of rookie groups that debuted. When doing this list, I think of artists that quickly jump to my mind.

2013 in Review: Embracing Your Inner Creeper
