This blog's three favorite songs released in 2014. You'll note that two of the three artists have been around for awhile so THC is looking for recommendations on songs and artists who started a little more recently.
Chrissie Hynde released her first solo album, Stockholm, this summer and it contains several strong tunes. My favorite is Like In The Movies.
Since we're talking about Chrissie, this gives THC an excuse to link his three favorite Pretenders songs; Night In My Veins (a terrific live version), Talk Of The Town and Middle Of The Road.
Next up is a new band, 7Horse, and Carousel Bar which sounds like what would happen if you had a band with Keith Richards on guitar and Warren Zevon on vocals. Not likely to happen since Warren is hanging out with Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner.
Finally it's the Tedeschi Trucks Band with Do I Look Worried.
Since THC didn't do this last year, he's gonna add his 2013 favorite new song Matmos by Amplifier. To really appreciate this you need to hear it on a first-rate sound system. It's an astonishing aural experience.
