The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Misty Coast

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: Misty Coast

What: Melodaze

When: January 2019

Where: Brilliance Records

Why: Melodaze is a starburst of quixotic, romantic dreamgaze with an edge. Linn Frøkedal and Richard Myklebust's Misty Coast makes sounds that bring together a sweet, breathy thrall of with lush, syrupy swells. The cascades of crystalline psych pop have an irrepressible energy, songs hurtling forward into the great unknown. A gem of an album.
