Best Of 2014: The Lists - Kevin's Picks

2014 was a huge year for music makers and music lovers alike. Established bands hit their stride, newcomers changed the game and across the board musicians from the biggest to the smallest delivered some of the best music we’ve heard at ChunkyGlasses since we started this damn thing almost five years ago. Before calling it quits for 2014 and taking a break, it’s time for one last list, one last roundup, and a whole lot of thank-you’s.

To all of the amazing artists we talked about, interviewed, or just put in our ears -  thanks  for thinking we were worth your time. That goes double for the ones we didn’t get to.

To the site staff and contributors and sitters in – your insights, opinions and differences in tastes keep this whole thing interesting for me. Hopefully it does the same for our readers and listeners (if not we’ve got an email address for that). Special thanks goes out to Paul for gChat support and Andre for the heady vibes he brought to the podcast.

Biggest thanks though is to our readers and listeners. We’d still do it without you, but the idea that once in a while people listen to and maybe even care what we say – even if it’s only eleven of you – warms our curmudgeonly hearts greatly.

With all that out of the way, I give you 2014 through my ears.

See you soon.

Keep your lawn safe.
