Posted by Billy Gil, January 6, 2015 02:42pm | Post a Comment

We've tallied up our top sellers for the year at Amoeba Hollywood and, including CDs, vinyl and downloads. Take a look below at what Amoeba shoppers picked up in 2014.

1. Arctic Monkeys - AM

Arctic Monkeys megahit fifth LP from 2013 continued selling right into 2014 on the strength of hits like "Snap Out of It."








2. Jack White - Lazaretto

Jack White's experimentally bluesy second album helped his legion of fans grow larger by the day.








3. Lana Del Rey - Ultraviolence

With her great looks, saucy image and densely orchestrated 007 balladry, Lana Del Rey got even bigger and better in 2014.








4. Beck Morning Phase

Beck returned after a six-year hiatus with a contemplative set of mood pieces.








5. The War on Drugs Lost in the Dream

The War on Drugs kaleidescopic country-dream-rock pleased both critics and record buyers alike.








6. Flying Lotus You’re Dead

The L.A. producer's fifth album imagines death as a beautiful journey, but despite its high concept, it was his most accessible work yet.








7. The Black Keys Turn Blue

For Turn Blue, rock 'n' roll revivalists The Black Keys once again worked with Danger Mouse. And once again, the album was a huge hit.








8. Lana Del Rey Born to Die

Even two years later, Lana Del Rey's first album remained a sales phenomenon, likely aided by the 2014 release of her second album, Ultraviolence.








9. Beyonce - Beyonce

A last-minute-of-2013 surprise release and 2014 re-relase helped Beyonce sell well all year. The newly released Platinum Edition has loads of bonus material, including the new song "7/11."








10. Mac DeMarco Salad Days

The grinning, gap-toothed prince of indie rock had his biggest critical and commercial hit yet in 2014.









11. FKA Twigs LP1

Tahliah Barnett's debut album was a top seller and also Amoeba bloggers' favorite album of the 2014.









12. St. Vincent St. Vincent

Critical darling St. Vincent had a big year, with her well-received fourth solo album and awesomely bewildering "SNL" performance.









13. Future Islands Singles

Future Islands went viral over singer Samuel T. Herring's rubber-legged dancing in a passionate "Letterman" performance, but Singles' sold steadily on the strength of its new wave-inspired pop songs and hit single "Seasons (Waiting On You)."







14. Warpaint Warpaint

L.A. ladies Warpaint made a moody, brilliant second album.









15. The xx The xx

The xx's 2009 debut continues to sell huge numbers, seeming to land on our year-end top sellers list every year since being released.








16. Aphex Twin Syro

The electronic music titan suddenly returned after a 13-year absense with the acclaimed Syro.








17. Freddie Gibbs & Madlib Pinata

Producer Madlib teams with up-and-coming rapper Freddie Gibbs on this perfect set of heady bangers.








18. Kendrick Lamar good kid, m.A.A.d city

2013's most critically acclaimed album continued to do well in 2014.









19. Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon

A must-have for anyone starting a record collection, Pink Floyd's classic always sells well.
