2014: Year in Review, Part 1

Just as we did last year, we're wrapping up 2014 with a wide-spanning, multi-part "year in review" series of broadcasts that highlights some of our favorite music released during the past calendar year. Especially since our 2014 broadcasts were so heavily focused on older underground music from the 1980s and 1990s - through series like Unfinished Business (1980s Post-Punk), Destroy All Music (Early U.S. Punk & Hardcore), Pop-Punk Ain't (All) JunkNick Cave - Man or Myth?, and others - we wanted to take an opportunity to call attention to some newer music too. As music fans and listeners, we here at The Way out aren't entirely stuck in the past!

As regular Way Out listeners have perhaps come to expect, 2014: Year in Review emphasizes the more obscure and lesser-known music and musicians operating today (though there are a number of high-profile indie artists featured here too). This also isn't a traditional "best of" list. There's no ranking or systematic method to the music selected here. It's just a leisurely presentation of some of the more interesting and exciting new artists, songs, and albums we encountered in 2014.

Here's the playlist for Part 1 of 2014: Year in Review, which was broadcast on Saturday, December 20, 2014:
