Golden Grahammy for Best Overall Musical Artist That I Had the Most Fun With This Year – Danny Brown
He’s just so much fun. This is the best thing he did this year.
Silver Grahammy – Zeds Dead – Somewhere Else
Zeds Dead takes a page out of Lana Del Rey’s playbook and releases an awesome 12” pretending to be an EP. “Lost You” and “Bustamove” are great. The rest of the album is kinda bad.
Bronze Grahammy – Lana Del Rey – Ultraviolence
A slightly less offensive “Girl Weeknd,” Lana Del Rey keeps releasing mediocre full length albums that are actually awesome EPs. “Fucked my way to the top” should be the climax of a really solid six song release instead of the halfway point of a much longer slog.
Consolation Grahammy – Kiesza – Hideaway
I’m sure this song is on an album, but I don’t know what that album is or what it’s called. I’m okay with that though. This song is righteous on its own.
Other Good Musics
- Cloud Nothings – Here and Nowhere Else
- Have a Nice Life – The Unnatural World
- Schoolboy Q – Oxymoron
- Burial – “Lambeth”
- Thirty Seconds to Mars – “Up In The Air”
To Finish Up The List
- I asked my son “What’s your favourite song of 2014?” and he said “Yeah.” He meant it’s a tie between “Gangnam Style” and Disclosure’s “When a fire starts to burn”
