For decades, my friend Todd has put together an email chain comprised of all of his
friends. We email back and forth our lists of the BEST ALBUMS OF THE YEAR. He did this decades before there was Pitchfork or any best-of list. The albums below made the cut for me. Here is my list of the best albums of 2019.
BEST ALBUMS OF 2019
+ This album carries with it unreleased recordings of songs Prince had written for other performers. But, sung by Prince! Check out his recording of Manic Monday!
+ My friend Vanessa introduced me to her back in 13 BC — so I feel pretty rad for following King Princess’ career. Her voice and her sultriness are unmatched.
+ Matt Wallace’s original mix, before it was Algae’d — and it comes equipped with a session with Tom Waits!
+ Post Malone showcases unbeatable hooks and versatile vox. Loving this album for my long commutes.
+ Her vox, her attitude, her everything. Go see her live if you haven’t already. I saw her twice this year and I plan on a trillion more outings.
+ This has everything you need. Versatility, political alertness, references and the finest musicianship. I dance through this entire album.
+ All hail the queen. She brings all the soul and funk and heart from Alabama Shakes – and nothing less.
+ are one to watch. The vocals are sweet and rich and you want to hear more. Misty Mtn
+ A dedication to motherhood – soft, somber and beautiful.
+ Her pipes are sick and nostalgia-inducing. (Check out her recording of The House of the Rising Sun even though it’s not on her latest EP)
+ I must say I have grown to love her. Good, fun, poppy beats and visual storytelling.
+ And there you go. Happy Holidays. Happy New Year. Put on those headphones and enjoy the rest of the year. I hope you enjoyed this post on the Best Albums of 2019.
