The Year of 2014

I have never been one of those top ten of the year types but this year has been one of the most extreme I’ve ever experienced. Spending a lot of time alone and far from those I love, negative doom spiralling, adventuring, caring and slowly rebuilding. My record collection has always been a crucial resource for me to make sense of myself, what is happening and how to make changes. These are some of the records and tapes that have particularly helped me this year, in no particular order:

Trash Kit – Confidence

Lost and regained. Medication.
