We're already a little ways into 2015, but the 2014 best-of music recaps are still on my mind. I find that they're an excellent way to reminisce about the year in music and, more often than not, discover new-to-me music that I've somehow missed.
Today, I checked out NPR Music's 50 Favorite Albums of 2014 and, I must say, there were some pretty great recommendations. The list covers a broad range of genres from the melancholy Irish refrains of The Gloaming's self titled album to the offbeat — in a good way — indie-rock sound of Alt-J's This is All Yours.
Definitely give it a look if you're in need of some new tunes!
