Best albums of 2019 (Spotify playlists in 1st post)

Recommended Posts

Albums to look forward to in 2019

Vampire Weekend, Tame Impala (had forgotten about them...), Grimes, My Bloody Valentine, The Raconteurs, Deerhunter

For whatever reason, I always seem to like odd years' music better than evens. :shrug: so expecting a lot of good tunes.

Northern Voice

Jaysus

El Floppo

Apparently FIDLAR's By Myself is already song of the year (1/22/19)

Looking forward to Db180 (savages side project) and the hold steady. Wouldn't be surprised to see another LCD album too.

FOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLSSSS

oooh... was just wondering about them. 

whole lot of r&b and grime on my RR this week (and I was looking forward to popping my 2019 playlist cherry... which I did, with a D'Angelo tune... ?). but no Foals. wtf, spotify. the holidays and my wife/kids listening really ####ed up the algorithms... I've got a mark ronson miley cyrus tune going now.

RR of note:

Lizzo

Ultramarine (!!!... they had a folk/ambient/electronica album- every man and woman is a star- that was one of my favorite early 90s albums... looking forward to hearing this, but without high hopes given the genre not necessarily having legs)

 

... dammit. I don't really recognize most of the rest.

considering my usual music of choice... folk/ambient/electronica isn't what I need to be hearing... even if it's pretty good from them.

Kind of forgot about both of these bands.  Need to look out for their new stuff.  :thumbup:

What's an RR? :bag:

 

Hey GM. Tufnel here. RR is Release Radar, a weekly playlist Spotify compiles that contains new releases Spotify thinks you’d like based on your listening habits.

Ohhhh, I think I'd like that!  I find Spotify a touch confusing at times, but I'm an old and not getting better with teh technology.  I do like Pandora's Thumb Print Radio quite a bit.

 

Well, thanks for getting back to me!

I'm guessing this is in NY. But I'm in San Diego now, GB. If I was still in CT, I'd be in. Would have loved to meet up and check the show out.

New PUP album 'Morbid Stuff' out April 5th.

Excited for this. Foals 'Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1' is March 8th, which should mean a single soon. Part 2 will also be 2019.

I've only heard one new album from this year so far but can already say it's a lock for my NV 2019 FFA album poll.  

The Delines - The Imperial

I'm a big Richmond Fontaine/Willy Vlautin fan and was sad that the band dissolved.  Happy to hear he's still writing great songs and, although I've always liked it, his vocal was never really his strong suit.  This woman's voice fits his songs perfectly.

My wife is trying to force me to move up the Hudson so that would complicate city based entertainment options.  Are you in General Admission?

Location TBD. Hopefully we will keep the place.  Who doesn't want to maintain 2 tenants in a 100 year old house in Bed Stuy from 70 miles away?

smaht. that place is essentially a retirement goldmine if you can hold on to it and make it work. 

friend moved up to Hudson a while ago- loves it (single gay man, so not family stuff- but I've always trusted my pioneering/emigrating gay friends for places they like). what little I've seen up that side of the hudson is pretty nice. there will be ponies ridden and lacrosse played.

I should start a thread.  Where did he end up? What albums does he fancy this year?

my friend who moved to hudson (eta- I coudln't tell you what street, but I think he's closish to the water)? I haven't spoken to him in a while... but I can tell you unequivocally that his top albums are IDLES and PQ- the man has exquisite taste, naturally.

Really looking forward to Vampire Weekend and possible Distillers reunion. Interest piqued over Jawbreaker, too. And MBV is a must for me, even though I really missed their last one (I don't know what trip I was on).
