Ranch List – “Best of 2014 (Jan-Apr)”

I have been building ongoing Spotify playlists featuring my favorite tracks of 2014. In the first four months of the year I have come across some great music from Machinedrum, Illum Sphere, St. Vincent, SOHN, Chet Faker, Lykke Li and many more. I will be back in a few months with an updated list! Hope you dig it!
