Hickensian's Year of Music 2014

If you’ve got Spotify, a spare three hours and a desire to know what music has floated my boat this year, here’s my end of year list! With a few exceptions (such as Slowdive, in honour of their reunion), it’s music released in 2014, and features Phantogram, I Break Horses, A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Purity Ring, Beck, Todd Terje, Mastodon, The Naked And Famous and Bombay Bicycle club. There’s also the genius ‘Shia LaBeouf’ by Rob Cantor, which is well worth your time!

Revisionist Rye Pale Ale

Last week I tried one of the Revisionist Beers called ‘Rye’. It was a tasty, tasty pint that I could’ve drank all night (I did my best). Lovely label design too. Looking at their website (one of those fill in your birthday details jobbies – because that stops the kids from looking at it) they also have an intriguing ‘Dark IPA’ coming in the New Year:

Perfect for drinking while browsing the DARK INTERNET and looking out for DARK PATTERNS. Sorry, I just find this whole ‘Dark …’ business a bit mirthsome at times*. I like adding it to other words like ‘Dark Stationery’.

*It’s different for brewers – they can use Dark without sounding cheesy…
