  • PanopticonNYC » Top Ten Songs of 2014
    in the face of overwhelming struggle 7 Perfume Genius Fool The vocal driven percussion less middle section of Perfume Genius Fool is the most startling most unexpectedly transcendent stretch in any song this year The track begins as a tasteful adult contemporary ballad before becoming completely untethered with Mike Hadreas plaintive Sigur Ros esque wail swallowing everything in its wake Then we crash back into a galloping doo wop finale A mini symphony 6 Ty Segall Feel Restless garage revivalist Ty Segall has been on a tear lately releasing several albums a year becoming a Jack White esque figure for the next generation of long haired rock fans Manipulator is his most considered polished record to date which is not to say any of Segall s energy is lost on this record If anything Feel is as close as a Segall studio recording has come to capturing his live fury Over a driving bassline Segall s wailing guitar builds to an impressive head banging crescendo The brat can play Note this song isn t available on Rdio Check it out here 5 Swans Just a Little Boy For Chester Burnett Over the course of its two plus hour run time Swans phenomenal To Be Kind shakes the rafters on multiple occasions But its best track is its quietest Just a Little Boy patiently founders like Nick Cave in a painkiller haze until Michael Gira s pinched wail of I m just a little boy is greeted by a genuinely upsetting non sequitor of crowd laughter This is pure distilled humiliation like the memory of your first public embarrassment baring its ugly face in the present And then Gira s crazed howl of I need looooove another round of laughter and a wall of feedback No other song set a dire mood as effectively as Just a Little Boy in 2014 4 Mac Demarco Let Her Go I don t know if anyone else crafted as many enduring hooks as Mac Demarco this year Let Her Go is the best song on Salad Days a record stocked with great singles What makes Let Her Go stand out is its sheer effortlessness that watery guitar that rolling bassline that instantly infectious chorus which smacks you in the face right away and doesn t relinquish your attention for a perfect three minutes Demarco apparently penned much of Salad Days in a post tour bout of exhaustion that weary resignation and odd bliss that comes with it bursts forth in every moment of Let Her Go 3 Future Islands Seasons Waiting on You So much has been written about Seasons that insane performance on Letterman the revival of sincerity in indie rock lead singer Samuel Harring as normcore icon that I don t feel like I have anything to add to the conversation What we have here simply is a perfect synth pop song The soaring melody already feels timeless This is a song that people will be unabashedly belting out at parties karaoke

  • PanopticonNYC » The Top Ten Live Shows of 2014
    club show all the better for the band s high energy rock There was more per capita crowd surfing at this show than any other I saw in 2014 including two of the guitarists one of whom wrapped his legs around the lighting rig and hung upside while shredding 5 Farewell to 285 Kent 285 Kent Brooklyn New York It s no secret that Williamsburg has changed enormously but 2014 felt like a tipping point no less than four indie rock clubs have closed in the last four months But while I didn t get a chance to attend any of the final shows at Death by Audio Glasslands or Spike Hill I did pay my respects at the final show at 285 Kent Aside from being a stellar rock show co headliners Diiv and Fucked Up were both the best I ve seen them it was a strangely emotional night I left exhausted covered in beer and other peoples sweat feeling like I had just said goodbye to a neighborhood that drew me to Brooklyn in the first place over ten years ago 4 Skrillex Superjam Bonnaroo Manchester Tennessee I may be biased because I had the pleasure of working on a behind the scenes documentary of this show When I was hired I had no idea when to expect from a Skrillex Superjam at Bonnaroo I figured it would be Skrillex DJ ing with some MC special guests Boy was I wrong This was an epic genre spanning bonanza EDM rock R B hip hop and soul Not only is Skrillex actually a great guitarist he s also a hell of a bandleader he assembled a truly mindboggling list of special guests from Lauryn Hill to Damien Marley from Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead to Robbie Krieger of The Doors from Mystikal to Janelle Monae I watched this amazing show take form over a few days the crowd at Bonnaroo experienced it all in one three hour burst Watching an enthusiastic audience have their perceptions of Skrillex shattered was almost as much fun as the show itself 3 The War on Drugs Music Hall of Williamsburg Brooklyn New York Slave Ambient suggested The War on Drugs could become America s next great classic rock band the group s newest Lost in a Dream cemented it And they ve quickly become an elite live band translating the Tom Petty at the bottom of a swimming pool aesthetic of their records into immediate widescreen shimmering Americana On their Dream victory lap frontman Adam Granduciel and his ever growing band let the record s jammy tendencies run their course The result was a show full of needle in the red awesomeness recalling contemporaries My Morning Jacket and Wilco not to mention snare on the two E Street driving beats while adding plenty of their spacey drifting personality 2 Swans Music Hall of Williamsburg Brooklyn New York The career of Michael Gira and his project Swans defies expectations Not only is
