Favorite Albums, 2019

December 16th, 2019

The best album of the year? Without a doubt, NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS / GHOSTEEN   

 

My most listened to album of the year? Probably LIZZO / CUZ I LOVE YOU   
 
 
And I was also really into these: 
 
FONTAINES D.C. / DOGREL  
 
 
 
SHARON VAN ETTEN / REMIND ME TOMORROW
 
 
 
LOCAL NATIVES / VIOLET STREET 
 
 
 
HALF ALIVE / NOW, NOT YET
 
 
 
THE MURDER CAPITAL / WHEN I HAVE FEARS  
 
 
 
FEET / WHAT'S INSIDE IS MORE THAN JUST HAM  
 
 
 
STURGILL SIMPSON / SOUND & FURY
 
 
 
JENNY LEWIS / ON THE LINE  
 

 

I wasn't expecting to fall in love with Half ALive but I did. Local Natives performed my favorite Big Room session this year (those harmonies!) and raise the bar with each new release. Listen to The Murder Capital LOUD, and once you get past the name Feet, you'll love them.
