2014 | October Albums

October had numerous fantastic releases from both newcomers and old-timers. There were so many that I had to narrow it down to avoid having an overly long post. Although these are just my top three choices of the month, I would also recommend checking out:

Hozier by Hozier (7 October)
Irish singer-songwriter Andrew Hozier-Bryne released his debut self-titled album following a year of slowly building success with two EP releases. Hozier combines soul, gospel, blues, rock, and folk together to complement Hozier's haunting, soulful voice. Lyrically, Hozier tackles some complicated issues, setting his debut apart from others in the genre. Although I don't usually enjoy soul/blues-tinged rock musicians, Hozier's voice quickly captivated me and his hooks stay in my head for days.
Favourite tracks: Angel of Small Death & the Codeine Scene, Jackie & Wilson, Sedated.
