Top Forty Albums of 2014: 35-31

Continuing the countdown of my favourite albums of the year.  A reminder that the only chart that really counts is the official Festive Fifty, and you've only got two days left to vote in that at

For now:

 35. Drown - Defrag (Hymen)

Crushingly abrasive electronica from an album that received some of the most favourable feedback of the year when I played a track from it.  One hell of a return from this German breakcore powerhouse.

34. Get Rid A Di Wicked - Lutan Fyah (Break Back Productions)

Sublime reggae stylings from a man whose work I really ought to write about more.

33. Mescendugos - Mescendugos (Hudini)

Hungary maintained its position as one of Europe's and the world's finest musical centres this year and the Hudini label certainly played its part.  This rumbling ogre of an album was their best release.

32. Slurpt - Ace Bushy Striptease (Odd Box)

One of those farewell albums that make you realise how much a band is gonna be missed. Superior indie pop.

31.  Everyday Robots - Damon Albarn (Parlophone)

Sometimes you've just got to recognise great music and this is Albarn's best work since Blur.  

30-26 coming soon.
