Murmur

Another year full of great music, over 30 albums here that I really enjoyed... a few of which were my very favorites of 2014. First, here's everything that piqued my interest...albums I enjoyed over repeated listens. It was a big year for drone, shoegaze, and experimental music, as well as a big comeback year for cult acts like ExHxGx, Godflesh, and more.

My first encounter with Murmur was in the summer of 2012 when I happened to see them in Chicago as part of a bill topped by Nachtmystium and Krieg. I was impressed enough by their set of kind-of blackened/kind-of sludgy/slightly proggy metal to stop by the merch table and pick up a copy of their debut CD, 2010’s Mainlining the Lugubrious. Much to my disappointment, the opiate-hazy black metal of that disc bore so little resemblance to the band I had seen on stage that night that at first I thought I had bought the wrong album.
