Daniel Woolhouse (UK) effortlessly makes electronic music that draws influence from R&B and dream pop that brings fond reminders of James Blake and the like. Great track.

Damien Rice releases his third studio album and continues his legance to heart-felt balladry, this is no different but a beautiful track all the same, armed with subtle orchestration.
4. Pink Floyd
Cut_ Louder Than Words
Moments of_ Pink Floyd
No matter what the new album sounds like, to have Pink Floyd produce an album in 2014 is something to be excited out. It is Pink Floyd, we don’t really have to explain.
5. Wildbirds & Peacedrum

Moments of_ Massive Attack, Lamb, St.Vincent
Grooving out of Sweden with just vocals and drums, this duo mix sparse sounds, bluesy vocals and damn fine drum beats.
Cut_ Paradise Girls

Its all a bit messy, mixed up and melodic all at once, this latest single from their brand new album La Isla Bonita maintains all the punchy sugar coated punk you could ask for.
