Now that we are about halfway through 2014, it’s time we take a look back and list some of our favorite new albums of the year. It’s been a great year for music so far, and I was pulling my hair out trying to shave my favorite releases down to 10 choices.
Many of the artists on the list have even played The Blue Note or Mojo’s this year, supporting those new albums of theirs. Against Me!, Schoolboy Q, and Drive-By Truckers have all played The Blue Note this year.
Danny Brown, who features on Madlib and Freddie Gibbs track “High” also played at The Blue Note earlier this year. The War on Drugs and Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks have both played Mojo’s in 2014 as well.
Wye Oak are coming to Mojo’s July 21, 2014. Tickets are on sale now for $14. Doors open at 7:30 pm, show starts at 8:30 pm. Freddie Gibbs will be opening for Tech N9ne Friday, June 27. Tickets are on sale now for $25. Doors open at 7:30 pm, show starts at 8:30 pm.
