My favorite albums of 2019

The most impressive:

173133
173134
173135
173136
173137

173138
173139
173141
173142
173143


All these albums have impressed me by their unity, their focus, their originality. They're all very different.

1. Tropical Fuck Storm - Braindrops
2. Big Thief - UFOF
3. Your Old Droog - It Wasn't Even Close
4. Jessica Pratt - Quiet Signs
5. Julia Jacklin - Crushing
6. The Beginning and End of Cereal Killer
7. Control Top - Covert Contracts
8. Marie-Flore - Braquage
9. Faye Webster - Atlanta Millionaires Club
10. 3776 - Saijiki

Tropical Fuck Storm is without any doubt my favorite rock band alive. They have everything: a great singer, great guitar play, amazing creativity.

Big Thief is no less amazing, but in a quiet way: and despite what many people may think, they're more original when they're quiet. I only realized Adrianne Lenker also had a solo work beside the band, and that she recorded two songs on UFOF that she had already recorded on her solo album the previous year. She's been touring non-stop for three years!

Your Old Droog is my favorite hip hop album of 2019.

Jessica Pratt is an enchantress. With her special little voice, she brings you to a surreal land.

Julia Jacklin will get you one day or another. Maybe when you won't pay attention.

Cereal Killer and Control Top are punk freaks. I don't let my ears easily aggressed: only when the excitement is rewarding. Those ones, in the middle of their relentless energy, just blow you away.

Marie-Flore is a French singer songwriter I only discovered last week, though she's been discreetly around for a while. She's good on the mid-tempo dance hits (her album is full of them) but especially excells at the slow ones.

Faye Webster has a voice "à fleur de peau" as we say in french, and stops the time with her lazy, fresh, intimate tone.

Finally, that Japanese album makes me think Japan is another planet, with different ways to express things. I would lie if I was saying it's easy to digest: it's actually sometime unbearable, still, makes me think I need to play it again. In benefit of the doubt, comes 10th on my list.

My favorite albums of 2019, suite (I have 29 overall)

173149
173150
173151
173152
173153

173154
173155
173156
173157
173158


11. Weyes Blood - Titanic Rising
12. Tyler, the Creator - Igor
13. Chelsea Wolfe - Birth of Violence
14. Jackie Cohen - Zagg
15. Vanishing Twin - The Age of Immunology
16. Kate Tempest - The Book of Traps and Lessons
17. Aldous Harding - Designer
18. Cate Le Bon - Reward
19. Lana Del Rey - Nomran Fucking Rockwell!
20. Jenny Hval - The Practice of Love

All those albums are strong, substantial one way or another, with the exception of Jackie Cohen maybe - who is still learning, but I'm still entertained by the charm and variety of her old fashioned tunes (no hype here). All those albums have little weak spots too. I don't want to elaborate on that, I'm not in the mood. 🙂

OK, 28 and not 29 after all. It's less solid again in this pack... but still more than just one or two good songs surrounded by fillers. They offer a vision, a world, a style. Some are hyped, others not.

21. Otoboke Beaver - Itekoma Hits
22. Charly Bliss - Young Enough
23. Stella Donnelly - Beware of the Dogs
24. Bedouine - Bird Songs of a Killjoy
25. Jay Som - Anak Ko
26. FKA twigs - Magdalene
27. Weatherday - Come In
28. Luiza Brina - Tenho saudade mas já passou

The chronological order of my comp doesn't work, expectedly. I need to work on some sequencing. I'll regroup the songs by musical tone. I'm probably the only person on earth able to do that with the tracks in mind. 😃

I grew up listening to Chinese music and these are some of my earliest music memories.

Faye Wong was one of the biggest stars of the industry in the 90s but at the height of her popularity, she released an album full of wonderful, idiosyncratic non-mainstream songs. Of course, it flopped commercially but it really was the soundtrack of my growing up.
Thanks for sharing. That's really charming stuff from Faye Wong, I love it. Sadly, Chinese music and Chinese Pop (called C-Pop) are rather overlooked on Rate Your Music (which I guess reflects the western knowledge of Asian music, which is limited). Nonetheless, Faye Wong is high on RYM's Top list of C-Pop, with 5 albums in their Top 10. Other names listed are Anthony Wong, Tat Ming Pair, Xiao Feng Feng, Sandy Lam, Jay Chou, Chyi Yu, Shirley Kwan... You have fine taste in music Mustafina, and I want to believe that growing up with Chinese pop might have played an interesting part. 🙂

Shame on me. Since I didn't purchase any CD in 2019 (but one), I totally overlooked the releases that I suppose couldn't be heard on the net. Including Rachel Ries new project, Her Crooked Heart. I just realized today her music could be fully heard on the net. And it was released in 2019. Those "confidential" singer songwriters usually need financial support from their fans, in my mind it's a special circle and that escaped the spectrum of the music that is made out. My Bad. It's never too late to catch up! I discovered Rachel Ries in 2005 with her first album, and followed what she does since. She's not "groundbreaking", she's only a singer songwriter, but I always connected to her lyrics, music and delivery and I guess we could be much more out there to do so. She'll be touring the US West soon.
