A great song always makes a connection -- with your heart, your body, your head, sometimes with your voice, when you can't stop singing or humming along. The DJs of KDHX know that feeling, and they love sharing it with the world. These are the songs that truly connected with them -- and we hope with you -- in 2014.

88.1 KDHX top album spins of 2014

What a great year for new music. These are the top 2014 releases you've heard most on the KDHX airwaves this year. If you've seen past KDHX year-end lists, it's no great surprise that the New Pornographers and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings were the top spins for this year.

True hip-hop bands are rare birds today, as the genre continues to be dominated by solo artists, DJs, producers and remixers. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, but it's always good to get new, hard-hitting and exciting hip-hop from a big band like Sidewalk Chalk. On "Grocery List," a celebratory track from the album "Leaves," the Chicago collective raises a toast to the joyous sound of live, funky, urban music.

On the new album "Sugar Sugar Whomp Whomp," St. Louis' favorite funk-jazz brass band broadens its palette to spread hip-hop, Latin, rock, country and gospel tones across its always colorful style. The title track, featuring a nice guest spot by Dave Grelle of the Feed on organ, is classic Funky Butt Brass Band: plenty of jazz chops, buckets of soul and truckloads of funk.

Song of the Day: 'Home' by Split Screens

San Francisco-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Cafiero started Split Screens as a solo endeavor, enlisting just enough musicians to flesh out his songs. On the new track "Home," however, he stretches out, with piano and horns driving the full-band R&B groove.
