The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Giant Swan

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: Giant Swan

What: Giant Swan

When: November 2019

Where: KECK

Why: Glitchy, industrial, and haunted by an inescapable feeling of doom, Giant Swan's self-titled debut is dance music for these days of Dystopia. Big beats and sharp, jagged edges bring rave-ready electro and punk to the same party, the resulting discord and dissonance emitting a feverish, undeniable energy. A chaotic, loose cannon listen that feels right at home in the current state of affairs.
