The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Frankie and The Witch Fingers

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: Frankie and The Witch Fingers

What: ZAM

When: March 2019

Where: Greenway Records

Why: Sharing the same kind of rarefied, hallucinogenic-heavy air as psych pace-setters (Thee) Oh Sees, Frankie and The Witch Fingers let it all hang out on ZAM. It's a bubbling cauldron of a record; with kooky kraut, peculiar prog, rambunctious rockishness, and the aforementioned psych - a cockeyed, freaky concoction indeed. With a bevy of idiosyncratic beats, outlandish amounts of shimmy, and more fuzz than you can shake a magic wand at, ZAM is well and truly where it's at.
