Best Albums Of September 2014

Since September was such a brilliant month for music filled with comeback albums and surprise albums, I thought it would be worth naming a few albums that I loved this month.

Alt-J – This Is All Yours

Alt-J’s second album was a beautiful treat on the ears showing that the band at the forefront of indie rock/pop aren’t just one hit wonders. This album expands on the sound of the first one while complimenting it brilliantly.

Aphex Twin – Syro

Aphex Twin’s first album in 13 years proved that even when the sounds he’s making aren’t entirely groundbreaking like his usual self, he’s still able to put together some of the most intriguing and encapsulating electronic music imaginable.

Death From Above 1979 – The Physical World

DFA1979’s first album in 8 years showed the world how you really don’t need to change your sound all that much if you come back at the right time and it’ll sound just as brilliant. This is an album filled with classic DFA dance-Punk as they roll through these tracks with the chemistry that made them so great to begin with.

Jamie T – Carry On The Grude

Jamie T unveiled his third album this month, his first since 2009’s brilliant ‘Kings and Queens’. This album wasn’t disappointment and showed Jamie maturing with great results, it’s an album showing how his song writing abilities are brilliant in that he’s still able to tell brilliant stories while changing his style.

Perfume Genius – Too Bright

Perfume Genius made his most extroverted album yet this month, while still showing off his ability to absolutely tear apart my heart. This is an album about isolation and about brushing off the people that make you feel like that.

Thom Yorke – Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes

640

Thom Yorke released his second solo album by surprise this month as it was made available to buy via BitTorrent. Everyone went crazy about how it was distributed rather than the music itself. The music itself is pretty much what you get from a Thom Yorke record, glitchiness. Still it’s enjoyable nonetheless especially for die hard fans!
