year end best of list...the "Bones"

It's that time of the year again. One of the simple pleasures of the 'Gon is turning on to new music. Audiogon members tend to have eclectic, but high quality taste in multiple genres. Where else can you find advice on Spanish guitar music, Porcupine Tree, Shubert, reggae, or the best Lindsey Buckingham recording? I particularly enjoy the geographic diversity the forum brings to the table. Here is one from the South. There have been numerous "best of" threads already started, but here is the one recording that I keep going back to:
St. Paul and the Broken Bones- "Half the City".
These guys are from a small town in Alabama and channel the Muscle Shoals vibe. The lead singer looks like an accountant, but if you like Otis Redding and Al Green, you will love the "Bones". Check out "Call Me" on youtube.
I checked them out on you tube. Really a blast...thanks for the heads up.
My 25 year old son turned me on to these guys over the summer. He is one funky, soulful white boy!
Thanks for the recommendation. Tidal actually has their "Half The City" album on their service. Will be listening to it this evening.
I will check it out. However, no one else here listed their "best ofs'".

Here's mine in my order of importance:

Orenda Fink "Blue Dream"
Nick Waterhouse "Holly'
Lucinda Williams "Where The Spirit Meets The Bone"
Tweedy "Sukierae"

The next two are tied:
Ryan Adams "Ryan Adams"
Jenny Lewis "Voyager"

For sonics alone..the music as well..

Blake Mills "Heigh Ho"
Beck "Morning Phase"
Much more "take" than give IMO.
Here are my top 5 of 2014, in no particular order:

Ryan Adams-Ryan Adams
Joanne Shaw Taylor-The Dirty Truth
Looking Into You-A Tribute To Jackson Browne
Annie Lennox-Nostalgia
The New Pornographers-Brill Bruisers

Plus a couple more for good measure:

Melissa Etheridge-This Is M.E.
Slaw and Mofi,

Thanks for the additions. I agree with Ryan Adams and love Lucinda. You have given me some new ideas for stocking stuffers.
The New Basement Tapes is a keeper. Quite an ensemble. I saw St. Paul and the Broken Bones late night on Conan. Made me set right up in bed wondering who that white guy was. Guys got range.
I want to check out Jenny Lewis and Tweedy.
Maxnewid: Upon your recommendation and my auditioning, I ordered and just received the St. Paul (lp). I knew upon reading the players that I'd heard of the last name (Janeway) before. Yes, he played on Jason Isbell's lp, on one of my top lps from last year.

I'll listen to it tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up!
Maxnewid: Check this one out... Frazey Ford "Indian Ocean", then if you really want to be blown away, check out Frazy's "Obadiah" before it's gone. (lp)
Mofimadness: Thanks for sharing!
Listened to it... Great music, excellent performance. (Wow!, white boys shouldn't be able to do this?)

If I had my druthers, I'd record it all analog. The soundstage should be wider. (This is the (audiophile nerd) in me).

Thanks Maxnewid!
The ones that have made an impression and are in regular rotation include:

St. Vincent - St. Vincent
tUnE-yArDs - Nikki Nack
Somi - The Lagos Music Salon
Shabazz Palaces - Lese Majesty
Appreciate the feedback Slaw. I ordered both Frazey's yesterday. Next post will probably be a review of the live bonus discs from my Christmas wish list: Supertramps' "Crime of the Century", Drive By Truckers "English Oceans", and a couple of old Clapton deluxe editions with live bonuses. Happy holidays.
As an aside, "English Oceans" was a BIG disappointment for me on vinyl. The sonics are horrible!
