Spend the Holidays with XLR8R's Best of 2014

Well, we finally made it. After 12 months of filling our website with news, features, streams, videos, downloads, podcasts, and more, it's once again time for XLR8R to take a little break. Given that the music industry has essentially ground to a halt for the holidays, we've elected to follow suit and lay off the daily onslaught of new content for the next couple of weeks. Although we may pop in with the occasional post here and there (especially if something important happens), our regular schedule won't resume until Monday, January 5. In the meantime though, we'd like to encourage our audience to take a look back at the Best of 2014 series, which includes all of our attempts to sum up the year gone by, not to mention a whole lot of lists. (To make things easier, we've posted links after the jump.) Aside from that, we hope that everyone has a great holiday season and a happy new year. And of course, thanks for reading. Read more »

XLR8R's Best of 2014: Odds and Ends, Part 2

XLR8R's Best of 2014 series kicked off exactly three weeks ago, and since then, we've toured through quite the collection of year-end rundowns. Today, we've arrived at the final chapter, which wraps up both the Odds and Ends category and the Best of 2014 series as a whole. For those who missed the first half (which debuted yesterday), Odds and Ends is essentially a collection of our random thoughts, opinions, and observations from the year gone by. These items may not have fit squarely into a countdown-style list, but we've included some things we loved... and some things we didn't; more importantly though, everything in here left a mark on 2014, and merited one last bit of attention before the calendar flipped to 2015.
