Been a DJ? Check.
Complained about something being "overproduced"? Check.
Bought an album on import? Check
Ordered from indie mail order catalogs? Spent hours alphabetizing CDs? Had elaborate rules for sequencing mix tapes? Check, check, check.
But, the number one item on Buzzfeed's list is this: Have you ever felt like ranking your favorite music of the year was a necessary thing to do? In order to remain a card carrying music snob in good standing, I submit this list for 2014:
Courtney Barnett: The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas
Benjamin Booker: s/t
Deerhoof: La Isla Bonita
Sylvan Esso: s/t
Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings: Give the People What They Want
Nude Beach: 77
St. Paul & The Broken Bones: Half The City
Ty Segall: Manipulator
Nick Waterhouse: Holly
