The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Boy Harsher

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: Boy Harsher

What: Careful

When: February 2019

Where: Nude Club

Why: Dark and sinuous, there's something almost vampiric about the lustful, come hither advances of Boy Harsher's Careful. These are the sounds of the darkest corners of the dancehall, velvet beats full of shadows and seduction. Icy cold beats anchor the black eyeliner electrogoth entanglements, adding the most pleasurable sharpness. Provocative and heady, Careful is a bewitching, intense listen.
