Music: Pass The Mic: Artists on 2014

Heart Attack Man

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

  1. Bob Mould - Beauty & Ruin
  2. Lovechild - Migraine Music by Lovechild
  3. Code Orange - I Am King
  4. Cloud Nothings - Here and Nowhere Else
  5. Rick Ross - Hood Billionaire

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 really started getting heavily into Captain Beefheart this year. I instantly felt a deep connection with his music. He was a genius. 

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

I will probably remember 2014 most vividly as the year I saw Bob Mould perform live. He played songs spanning his career and I cried. 

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

In 2015 you can look forward to a new full-length, plenty of shows, and a bloodless coup d'état of Cleveland, OH.

5. What records are you looking forward to most in 2015?

I don't even know what's coming out next year. I live under a rock. If Modern Baseball or Citizen releases a new album I will automatically be stoked. 

6. What trend will you forever associate with 2014 in music?

I will forever associate 2014 with shoegaze bands trying to one-up each other on the decibel level.
