I had this in mind a year ago, but never got around to posting it (see Three Tracks: 2014). Three tracks that defined my year:
Jon Hopkins, “Open Eye Signal”
The track is a journey, a revelation (and the video is actually pretty great). Saw Hopkins in November (and again in July 2014), and it was brilliant.
The Knife, “A Tooth For An Eye”
It rocks. “I’m telling you stories/Trust me.”
Vampire Weekend, “Ya Hey”
Like a 21st century Paul Simon; the whole album is great. “Who could ever live that way?”
