The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Corridor

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: Corridor

What: Junior

When: October 2019

Where: Sub Pop Records

Why: Junior was the Sub Pop debut (and their third LP overall) for Montreal's Corridor, and what a coming out party it was. It certainly doesn't come across as the "rush" job it's reputed to be, an intricately tangled web of psych, post punk, art rock noise full of nuance. At times dreamy (hello, the perfection that is harmonizing in French), at times spiky, at times contemplative (and sometimes, all of the above and more), Junior is the kind of record that keeps on giving. It's totally luscious, and I fucking love it.
