|Top 1/2 of 2019, Bro|
Happy Don't Forget To Pay Rent Day.
Glad they came back after Rooms of the House.
Best: "RHODONITE AND GRIEF"
The Big Freeze
Just see Laura Stevenson in a room of ~30 people play the guitar and sing some songs and you'll all finally realize she's the most underrated singer/songwriter out there now.
Not sorry to Slowthai, this is the best rap album out of England this year.
Ew: The Album
|16||Sharon Van Etten|
Remind Me Tomorrow
I got most of the way through the OA without realizing that Sharon Van Etten was a major character.
|15||Better Oblivion Community Center|
Better Oblivion Community Center
Obligatory Phoebe Bridgers-related project addition to this year's list.
Best: "Dylan Thomas"
Chris is a rad dude and I want to meet him.
Best: "You, Me, And Nobody Else"
Lo-Fi Chill Album to Study/Relax To
Wish this slapped as hard as Floss, but it's dope that they're experimenting more.
Best: "Jailbreak the Tesla"
I still don't understand the words they're singing.
|10||The Tallest Man on Earth|
I Love You. It's a Fever Dream.
Back to form for the actually-not-that-tall guy.
Best: "I'm A Stranger Now"
When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Quiet and kinda creepy. Like me in high school, but in a cool way.
Best: "bad guy"
Quick and to the point. Albums mostly slaps.
I haven't listened to enough metal this year. Recs?
|6||The Comet Is Coming|
Trust in the Lifeforce of Deep Mystery
The required contemporary jazz album on 2019 lists.
Best: "Summon the Fire"
|5||Prince Daddy and The Hyena|
Cosmic Thrill Seekers
Like Jeff Rosenstock put his vocal chords through a cheese grater and wrote American Idiot.
Best: "Laruen (Track 2)"
I like to tell the Alexa to play this album so she censors herself saying the band name.
Best: "Drunk II", "F.U.C.A.W."
Female Fronted is not a genre.
Name one bad Pup song, I dare you.
Best: "Free At Last", "Bare Hands"
I Am Easy to Find
A perfectly National album.
Best: "Quiet Lights", "Where Is Her Head", "Rylan"
