Looking Back: Our Favorite Albums of 2014

As we ring in the new year, the Daily Slice staff remembers some of our favorite releases of 2014. It’s a daunting task to pick one favorite album for the entire year, but a handful of us managed to do it. Check out some of the staff’s favorite releases and why you should listen to all of them below!

Foxes – Glorious

This record shattered my expectations and proved to be one of the most interesting, thought provoking pieces of music I’ve heard in recent memory. As a whole, it’s an acquired taste; but one that is most definitely worth acquiring. The only place I had heard Foxes before was on Fall Out Boy’s “Just One Yesterday”, and from then on I was hooked. The melodies and beats are infectious, innovative, and original enough to keep the listener coming back for eons to come. There’s an insane amount of depth to the lyrics–a level that is not often displayed in this type of music. The result is a brilliantly dreamy, 80s inspired pop record that’s just as catchy as it is introspective. ~Nick Sisti  Continue reading Looking Back: Our Favorite Albums of 2014

EP Review: A Will Away – Cold Weather

a-will-away-cold-weather-reviewLike every other cliché fan of pop punk, I’ve had this crazy love-hate relationship with my home-state for as long as I can remember. But the one thing I’ve always loved about boring old Connecticut, besides my favorite pizza parlor, was the music. While it wasn’t necessarily the most heavily populated with fans, there is some serious musical talent in this state across almost all genres. And at nearly every one of my favorite local pop punk shows, A Will Away was on the lineup, performing a contagiously energetic set that was sure to make any show go from fun to unforgettable.

But the greatest thing about this band (and I said it in my review of their last album, Product of Your Environment) is that they’ve always been able to capture the energy they create during their live performances in their recordings, and their newest release, Cold Weather, is no different.
