For the Record: Here's What We Were Listening to in 2014

Rock & Roll is doing what you want to do.

  

As the hours tick ever closer to another New Year’s celebration we thought it worthwhile to share some of our favorite new music from 2014.  At one point or another, all of these tracks found their way onto our daily playlist which helped us through countless hours of design work, as well as many late nights figuring out everything else that accompanies the launch of a small business. 

While you won’t see Taylor Swift, Maroon 5 or Iggy Azalea on our list (those guilty pleasures are better enjoyed alone) you will find a few mainstream hits and some other more obscure gems.  Taken together these songs contributed to the vibe that was the soundtrack of our year pushing to get Encore Apparel Co. off the ground.

Without further ado here are the E.A.C. TOP 15 SONGS for the year (in no particular order):

 

Ghostland // The Ghost of Paul Revere - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSPyshZVJNQ

Coming of Age // Foster the People - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBqzrj18S2w

Gimme Something Good // Ryan Adams - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=802vbfZe9io

Catfish Blues (Live) // Gary Clark Jr. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IIjik7WvP8

The Long Way Around // Jackson Browne - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2GMr1GtzNo

Violent Shiver // Benjamin Booker - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm-rb8k1HkU

Riptide // Vance Joy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ_1HMAGb4k

Gotta Get Away // Black Keys - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZ2xc_d8uUw

In our opinion the best playlists are those that blend new music with old favorites. There is something to be said for hearing an amazing track from years ago right after a new tune you’ve only just discovered.  The top 2014 picks we’ve listed above will surely be blended in a similar manner on our new playlists as we embark on 2015.  Be sure to check out the ‘today’s playlist’ page which is updated regularly with the tracks we are building our current listening around.

 

 Life is Short. Play it Loud.
