Hello! We’re NJ’s own Lake Effect and we carefully crafted a list for our top ten favorite records of 2014, presented in alphabetical order. And by Lake Effect I mean Brian (me!) and Max because Keith and Ryan hate music.
Against Me! – Transgender Dysphoria Blues
Strip it of its significance and you’re still left with a raucous and unpretentious punk record, a welcome return to form for AM!
Just as vicious and even catchier than their last fantastic album Attack On Memory.
This album wins the Best Vibes on Record award of 2014.
Jagged riffs, unrelenting, awesome. “You put your fingers in other people’s mouths all day!”
Yeah yeah yeah it technically came out in 2013 shut up!
Mournful and tuneful, a great combination.
One of America’s best live bands -> releases a live record -> easy pick for any top ten list.
EP? Don’t care, it got as many spins (if not more) than any LP.
Punk punk punk punk punk.
Love this stripped down rock and roll record that includes the best song title of the year in “Drunk at the Track.”
