In what appears to now be an annual tradition around here, we pored over the wealth of stories we’ve written this year about local music and gathered this massive Spotify playlist of 150 songs released in 2014 by San Francisco Bay Area bands.
As the playlist shows, Bay Area groups released a hell of a lot of albums, EPs, and singles this year, and we’ve collected here an extremely diverse set of indie rock, garage, punk, folk, and electronic songs to enjoy.
If you’re looking for a more curated selection of standouts, do check out our recent podcast of 2014 musical highlights. Enjoy the playlist, and here’s to another great year in SF Bay Area music in 2015!
(P.S. Obviously, we were only able to include artists on Spotify and we probably missed some folks while we compiled this. Any notable omissions? Let us know in the comments.)
(P.P.S. This also seems like an obvious time to remind you that we are in the tail end of our end-of-the-year fundraising campaign, and any tax-deductible donation that you can offer will help us continue to champion Bay Area music in 2015.)
