My favorite album of 2014 might be the soundtrack to Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails, which is also leading in the categories of Best Video Game and Best Title.
But the music! If synths are your thing, and of course they are, check out Samuel Baker's incredible work. Start with "Theme from Scram Kitty" then check out "Docking Bay I." The entire OST can be had for a mere $4.
