The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: FEWS

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.



What: Into Red

When: March 2019

Where: Play It Again Sam

Why: Dark, breakneck noise from Malmo-based FEWS. Into Red manages to be not only exhiliratingly out of control but also catchy as fuck, its fitful, frenetic pace and addictive, pulsating rhythms working in tandem to create a sound that's both richly complex and impossibly magnetic.
