The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Living Hour

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: Living Hour

What: Softer Faces

When: March 2019

Where: Kanine Records

Why: Step right up and get your "one-way ticket to make-out city," courtesy Winnipeg dreamers Living Hour. On the disarming Softer Faces, Living Hour proves to be completely and utterly swoonworthy, their beguiling sounds shifting from astral, diaphanous slow dances to more urgent declarations and back again. Tender, heartfelt, and honest - a record that wears its heart on its sleeve.
