@apartofhim's Top 20 of 2014 - #1 Creepoid "Creepoid"

The best part about making lists is that they are wholly yours. Of course as Rob explained in High Fidelity "First of all, you 're using someone else's poetry to express how you feel. This is a delicate thing." But sound is a sense that we connect with sound in a way that is unlike any other sense. Interpreting sound is, if not more, as personal as interpreting touch. Both are in the very physical world, but one invokes the mind more directly since it can't be tainted by the sense of sight (think about how touch is interpreted by a bind person).

Anyway, what I'm getting at, is this whole top 20 list of mine, is mine. It's not wrong; it can't be, because it's mine. I just wanted to share what touched me most profoundly this year in the world of new music. Let me know what you think and what your favorites were.

That said, take this into consideration when listening to "Creepoid" - via The AV Club:
Press play if you like: Low; Mazzy Star; cough syrup; chronic insomnia; pop-punk 45s played at 33
