WiAC 2014 Songs HeaderWell we weren’t planning on doing a favorite songs post for 2014, but then Logan sent me an email with his favorite songs and some brief write-ups, then I couldn’t help doing the same, and before we knew it, we had a list that we both agreed should probably be shared. But we didn’t want to do too much more work,┬áso we present to you our favorite 30-ish songs from 2014, un-ranked and accompanied by our first-draft non-proof-read write-ups!

Logan’s list is on top, Chris’s is on bottom, and both are in alphabetical order. Click on and enjoy!

Here’s a short playlist I made a few weeks back after seeing The National open for Arcade Fire in Chicago (I promise to write something about that soon). It seems like there’s been a slew of one-off songs lately featuring the unearthly baritone of one of my favorite leading men, Matt Berninger, so I decided to throw all the ones I could find together.

They’re all varying degrees of awesome, but some stand out a titch more than others. The Forms song, for example, is hands-down one of my favorite songs of the year thus-far, while Matt’s duet with Sharon Jones over a Booker T groove is a very very close second. I also have a real soft spot for that Clogs tune. Enjoy!

mp3: The Forms – Fire To The Ground (featuring Matt Berninger)

mp3: Booker T – Representing Memphis (featuring Matt Berninger and Sharon Jones)

mp3: Doveman – Angel’s Share (featuring Matt Berninger)

mp3: Grinderman – Evil [Silver Alert Remix] (featuring Matt Berninger)

mp3: Clogs – Last Song (featuring Matt Berninger)

And if you’re enjoying Matt’s voice mingled with others, here’s some National songs featuring a few notable guest vocalists of their own:

mp3: The National – Sleep All Summer (featuring Annie Clark of St. Vincent)

mp3: The National – Think You Can Wait (featuring Sharon van Etten)

mp3: The National – Afraid of Everyone (featuring Sufjan Stevens)

And don’t forget, The National are releasing a special clear-vinyl 7″ of “Think You Can Wait” b/w “Exile Vilify” today! Get it here.
