Vattnet Viskar pick their favorite music of 2014

Posted by on December 8, 2014

It’s December, which means that, for the most part, the year in music is over. Almost everything that’s going to come out has already, as the music industry focuses on the holiday shopping rush by pushing everything that’s come out in the first 11 months of the year. It’s also a good time to take stock of what has come out so far this year, and while you’ll be getting our picks in due time, we wanted to first turn things over to some of the people making that music. To that end, Vattnet Viskar’s Nick Thornbury, Casey Aylward, Seamus Menihane and Chris Alfierie  have shared their favorite music of the year. Stay tuned throughout the week as we continue to bring you more artists’ picks for the year.
