The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Broken Chanter

Another rough year corresponded to another bumper crop of excellent music. Once again, my list is huge, because I fell in love with each of these 125 records and found it impossible to not include all of them in my fashionably late list.

I'm choosing to post my favorites in alpha order from A-Z again this year. You'll probably find some records that everyone and their fifth cousin raved about, but I hope you'll also find a few records that might be new to you, and that you'll fall in love with them as much as I have.

My thanks, as always, to the artists who created these records.


Who: Broken Chanter

What: Broken Chanter

When: September 2019

Where: Olive Grove Records

Why: Self-proclaimed "existential dread" from David MacGregor, Broken Chanter is a record full of intimate anxiety and questions as big as the Highlands. Glasgow-based MacGregor deftly twists and contorts electro-kissed folk into something heart-wrenching and wonderful. Broken Chanter's songs demand attention, but in the most endearing and earnest of ways.
