Music: Pass The Mic: Artists on 2014

Franz Nicolay

1. What are your top five albums that were released in 2014? (In order 1-5)

In no order:

  • Prince - Art Official Age
  • Against Me! - Transgender Dysphoria Blues
  • Jenny Lewis - The Voyager
  • Sun Kil Moon - Benji
  • Murder City Devils - The White Ghost Has Blood On Its Hands Again

2. What band did you discover in 2014 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?

I discovered The Cravats. I don't know if they will have an impact on my life but they are a very unusual and interesting band. Check out The Colossal Tunes Out

3. How will you remember 2014? (In terms of music)

I didn't discover a lot of new music. There were some new records that I enjoyed without getting obsessed with any of them. I listened to a lot of '80s anarcho-punk and then a lot of Prince.

4. What can we look forward to from you in 2015?

I have a new record, To Us, The Beautiful! out in January on Xtra Mile Recordings and Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club. J. Robbins produced.
