Now that we’re deep into November, with Thanksgiving just around the corner, it seems like a good time to deliver another podcast and give thanks for some of the best music of the year. But before we give ourselves fully to a year-in-review chat — which will coincide with our best-of-2014 features (don’t worry, they’re coming) — we though it was best to talk about the albums that slipped under our radar.
Next week, we’ll have a new feature up highlighting many of the great records that we didn’t get around to reviewing. And believe us, we feel really bad about letting some of these slip by. But better late than never, right? So, while we’re working on more eloquent explorations of these albums, on the podcast, we have a casual conversation about how we missed them, and why they’re worth revisiting now. And we’ve got some excellent selections for you — including Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra, Tobacco, Ratking, Open Mike Eagle, White Lung, United Nations, Tinashe and Vince Staples.
And if you haven’t listened to our inaugural Audio File podcast, it’s right here.
