My Favorite Releases of 2019

My favorites this year include a handful of reissues and archival releases. Rather than create a separate list, they’re lovingly mixed in with new gems from 2019. It was another strong year despite not listening to nearly as many new albums as I have in previous years. I think my average hovers around 200-300 each year. In 2019, I listened to just 108. And I plucked 45 worth shining a spotlight on. That’s a high percentage of my overall list. But again, it was a great year.

Enjoy my Bandcamp playlist which includes almost all of the releases below. See you in the roaring ’20s and until next time: Happy Holidays!
