I care too, I recognized some places from Dublin (mostly the Trinity College shiny ball) and then looked up the artist to see if he was from there :)

Full list coming next week some time (gotta see how this Friday's new BT album fits into everything) but I'm pretty confident in saying that Wallop by !!! is my favourite album of the year.

Good tier tracks:
Chrome.exe - Digitalism
Chrome.exe is a killer track! I think their new album is solid, but not as fantastic as their previous work. Looking forward to see their new material live in March in Vienna  :)

I kind of struggled to put the lists together this year. Or, in fact, it was deceptively easy as there wasn't too much to contend. I guess I haven't been listening to a lot of new music outside of the artists I already follow. A little sad. But I have a 13 day playlist at our studio that makes up 90% of what I listen to - so I guess it makes sense.

I'll do better next year.

My only grudge is that it's too short. It's the case with a few tracks on the new album.

I could make a list of my favorite music from 2019, but honestly the only artist that I would be truly enthusiastic going into detail about is, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard.

Best Album: Fishing for Fishies. King Gizzard has put out a ton of albums to be admired previous to this, but this has to be the most accessible they've put out in their career. I can't force you to like the music, but you cannot deny the range of perfectly executed and fun ideas they create on this contagious boogie-licious album. 

Best Video: , simple goofy video that has me in stitches

Best Songs: Boogieman Sam, Plastic Boogie, Real's Not Real, This Thing, Cyboogie, and from their August thrash metal release, Infest the Rats Nest - Hell.




and just because...

Favorite Movie:

Under the Silver Lake
