Top 10 albums - 2014

Image
So, it's that time again. When I put together a list of the 10 best albums I've listened to this year, and then fail to narrow my selection down to fewer than 15, thus making a mockery of the post title. Well, I didn't get where I am today without making a mockery of things so, here's my list, as usual, in one particular order...


15. Warpaint - Warpaint
















14. Little Dragon - Nabuma Rubberband
















13. Metronomy - Love Letters
















12. Swans - To Be Kind
















11. Robert Plant - Lullaby and... the Ceaseless Roar




Shooting Tokyo

So, I was on the east side of town with my camera and a little time to kill. I visited a few stations I often pass through with work. In each of the stations I visited, I was looking for literal 'snapshots', so I tried not to spend too long there. These photos are from Shinagawa (1-6) and Ueno (7-11).

So, I was in Izu, working my regular gig for the final time this year. As you know, I enjoy my time in that area, which is just as well considering how much I spent down there (we were trying to work it out the other day and we reckon it's getting on for half a year total). Here is the snapshot of my latest visit. It's a colourful place, isn't it?
