So, 2014 is done. After a very successful year for Bluebeard Music, we are excited to start 2015 with new EPs from both Fox & Fowl and The Phoncurves on the horizon plus the bookings department working in overdrive. Watch this space.

But to cap off the year, Dom and Ruby sat down and worked out their favourite music for the year of 2014. And here it is.

Top 10 Albums // EPs

1. DZ Deathrays – Black Rat

Man this album kicks some serious ace. It’s the more mature, motorcycle-riding, weed-schmoking, bad boy, older brother of 2012’s Bloodstreams and I’m in love. Swoon!DZ Deathrays - Black Rat

 2. King Gizz – I’m In Your Mind Fuzz
3. Beyonce – Beyonce
4. Death From Above 1979 – The Physical World
5. Hozier – Hozier
6. DMA’s – DMA’s
7. The Creases – Gradient
8. Real Estate – Atlas
9. Mac DeMarco – Salad Days
10. Fractures – Fractures

Top 10 Songs:
1. Babaganouj – Bluff // Beyonce – Drunk In Love

Okay so my top song is a tie between Queen Bey and the Nouj. Drunk In Love is my staple for any pre-Valley outing with my housemates (it’s provocative… it get’s the people going!). Bluff is just so infinitely cool! Harriette’s honey sweet vocals juxtaposed with the frustration of living up to relationship expectations is so bittersweet. It makes me want to weep and high five someone at the same time.
