Doof's Edgy 2019 So Far (in 70 releases)

On holiday over Easter for two and a half weeks and I'll be checking very little music or posting here so here's a 2019 so far list. Warning: It's edgy. Features percentage ratings.
70Weezer
The Black Album


[2%]

No Weezer you can't add both scores together to get a 5%.
69Weezer
The Teal Album


[3%]
68Florida Georgia Line
Can't Say I Ain't Country


[5%]
67Phonopaths
Sandwich, Ducks and Dishwasher


[6%]
66Devin Townsend
Empath


[10%]
65Bring Me The Horizon
Amo


[13%]
64Malibu Ken
Malibu Ken


[15%]

Couldn't get beyond the delivery. Sorry, unlistenable as a result.
63Billie Eilish
When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?


[20%]

Didn't detect any original ideas coming from here, but she's 17, so ok.
62Stella Donnelly
Beware Of The Dogs


[24%]

Big message(s), not a lot of musical content going down
61Ariana Grande
Thank U, Next


[25%]
60Xiu Xiu
Girl with Basket of Fruit


[25%]

Just...as you were
59Astronoid
Astronoid


[29%]

Worst 'negative impact caused by vocals' of the year so far.
58boogie
Everything’s For Sale


[30%]
57chai
Punk


[33%]
56Gesaffelstein
Hyperion


[34%]
55Solange
When I Get Home


[36%]

Not unpleasant to listen to but has absolutely nothing drawing me back. Whole thing screams 'artistic affectation'.
54White Lies
Five


[42%]
53Girlpool
What Chaos Is Imaginary


[43%]
52Beirut
Gallipoli


[45%]
51dave
Psychodrama


[45%]

Too moan and groan, too all one tone, too cheesy and telegraphed. Heavy handed.
50Ladytron
Ladytron


[47%]

Well made but generic to an insulting degree.
49James Blake
Assume Form


[48%]

A third of this album is very good though. But only a third.
48Julia Jacklin
Crushing


[49%]
47Meat Puppets
Dusty Notes


[51%]
46Jenny Lewis
On The Line


[53%]
45Jon Fratelli
Bright Night Flowers


[54%]

Has a couple of songs I like a lot, overall very by the numbers stuff.
44And The Kids
When This Life Is Over


[54%]
43The Twilight Sad
It Won/t Be Like This All the Time


[57%]
42Copeland
Blushing


[58%]

:/

Still working with this one.
41Swervedriver
Future Ruins


[59%]
40Shy FX
Raggamuffin SoundTape


[59%]

Fair play but I don't really think this was entirely necessary.
39DJ Jenifa
Jag Trax


[60%]

So maybe the success of last year's A.A.L N Jaar sideline isn't so easy to replicate after all. Just ok this.
38Bob Mould
Sunshine Rock


[61%]
37Panda Bear
Buoys


[62%]

Downloaded 'Inner Monologue' as it was intriguing. The rest is a pleasant listen but he needed to take more risks than he did here.
36mono
Nowhere Now Here


[62%]

Actually not bad for a post rock album in 2019.
35Cherry Glazerr
Stuffed and Ready


[62%]
34Sharon Van Etten
Remind Me Tomorrow


[63%]
33Andrew Bird
My Finest Work Yet


[64%]

Little to make this stand out, but well enough written and performed.
32Strand of Oaks
Eraserland


[65%]

Sounded promising, rated after one listen so need to return.
31Default Genders
main pop girl 2019


[65%]

Back on the fence with this - need to force myself to listen to it again. Prob not a good sign.
30John Garcia
John Garcia and the Band of Gold


[68%]

Meat and potatoes from John.
29Mercury Rev
Bobbie Gentry's The Delta Sweete Revisited'


[70%]

A bit shit around the edges but I still kinda like it. The idea of it more than anything else maybe.
28The Gloaming
The Gloaming 3


[70%]
27Michael Chapman
True North


[71%]

Slightly disappointing.
26Motorpsycho
The Crucible


[71%]
25The Tiger Lillies
Devil's Fairground


[71%]

Haven't given this enough time yet but it seems a minor return to form for 'em.
24Josin
In the Blank Space


[72%]

Let's all channel Thom Yorke together...
23Rustin Man
Drift Code


[72%]

Some of this is really strong, great grumbly antiquated stuff. Sadly, as a full album listen - somewhat lacking.
22Oso Leone
Gallery Love


[72%]
21Mikron
Severance


[73%]
20These New Puritans
Inside the Rose


[73%]

Something great is happening here but I haven't fully decoded it yet. For now...I like it.
19Jessica Pratt
Quiet Signs


[74%]]

Disappointment of 2019 so far really - a good album, but lacking variety, and not so good it really demands attention. Sorry Jess.
18Robert Forster
Inferno


[74%]

This is wonderfully boring, like seriously, this has grown on me so much as a background listen but it is very MOR. In a great way. Not many people can get away with that sort of thing = talent.
17Little Simz
GREY Area


[74%]

Listened to this again yesterday after a break...it's well made but maybe a little 'on the nose' in its courting of current trends. 74% is about right.
16Steve Mason
About The Light


[75%]
15Sunwatchers
Illegal Moves


[76%]
14Fennesz
Agora


[76%]

Might be underrating this after only three tries - has moments very reminiscent of 'Endless Summer' and that's still the sound that suits him best imo
13Czarface and Ghostface Killah
Czarface Meets Ghostface


[77%]

Thought this was surprisingly decent - preferred it to the MF Doom one personally but I've always liked Ghost's style.
12SPC ECO
Fifteen


[77%]

Huge sounding trip hop meets post rock-ish cinematic sweep - a tiny bit of editing and this could have been right up there.
11Sleaford Mods
Eton Alive


[77%]

Not their finest hour but on the 'battle choons' they still bring home the Brexit bacon. The slow stuff sounds like Hot Chip without the nerd thing going for it - so skippable.
10Deerhunter
Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?


[78%]

A release that holds practically zero surprises but still scratches that itch all the same. A bit of 'Berlin trilogy' loving going on for sure.
9Ry x
Unfurl


[78%]

Still sort of disposable and wallpaper-ish...and yet also of a high quality that's hard to dispute. Great voice...he could be doing even more with it but this is solid.
8Lifafa
Jaago


[79%]

Playful house album with its own flavour to it.
7William Tyler
Goes West


[79%]

Consistently releasing some of the best instrumental guitar music going,
6Haruomi Hosono
Hochono House


[80%]

Fun little retrospective experiment from Hosono - he revisits his debut and then, I guess you say, 'reimagines' it. In reverse. Sort of.
5The Delines
The Imperial


[81%]

My highest rated Willy Vlautin album too - again, similar to the Cass comment this might not hold out but I'd struggle to understand someone not rating this among his very best.
4Jungstotter
Love Is


[85%]

Very impressive debut along the lines of David Sylvian/Thomas Feiner/Antony Hegarty/etc. Another grower, the song writing blossomed here. I had a few early doubts.
3Cass McCombs
Tip of the Sphere


[89%]

At the moment I have this rated as his best yet...not sure if that will prove accurate in the long run but which ever way things go this is very close to his best. More of a jam rock and mellow rambling vibe to this one.
2avey tare
Cows On Hourglass Pond


[90%]

His most consistent solo release and the most consistent AnCo affiliated release since 'Strawb Jam' if we're being honest here. The opener and closer are perfect and what falls between fluctuates very little in quality - all super high. He hasn't reinvented the wheel but he's sure refined it.
1Lambchop
This (is what I wanted to tell you)


[91%]

Growing every spin, bringing in the Bon Iver drummer was a genius move, this is such a consistent listen and with it being the second release using this approach both the band and audience seem to be settling down into things. No surprise factor this time, no accusations of being a gimmick release, just a sturdy bastard of a long player.
