The Best New Records I Didn’t Listen to in 2014

This is my second best-of-2014 list. The other list featured the albums I actually spent time listening to last year. This list is full of records that I found on various year end lists and have started getting familiar with this year. They are in no particular order, and I don’t have much to say about them because I’ve only just started listening to them.
