The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Cherry Glazerr

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: Cherry Glazerr

What: Stuffed & Ready

When: February 2019

Where: Secretly Canadian

Why: The first two songs on Stuffed & Ready, "Ohio" and "Daddi," are two of my favorite songs of the entirety of 2019. "Ohio" crackles with a kind of perfection of feisty 90s-reminiscent fuzz, and "Daddi" is a crushing, though empowering, women's lament. Clementine Creevy, at all of 22, has unleashed some impressive songwriting on Stuffed. "I’m exploring my own self-doubt. I’m confused about what happiness is and I’m searching for my place in the world." Some of us are still searching, but Creevy's explorations have led Cherry Glazerr to create a hell of an album.
