Travelogue 2014: Top Ten Eclectic

I think of this group of albums as a beautiful Venn diagram from the perspective of music covered on Stationary Travels. Familiar elements of ambient, electronic, modern classical, and post rock appear, but so do many others in a prominent way – pop, shoegaze, folk, jazz, and trad. But these are only reference points, not boundaries. Just enjoy the diversity, vibrancy, and song craft in this very appealing set of albums released this year.
