The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Night Moves

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: Night Moves

What: Can You Really Find Me

When: June 2019

Where: Domino Recording Co.

Why: There's a softness that happens on Can You Really Find Me. It's the kind of feeling that comes on certain summer nights, in moments when the sun has almost set and the sky is awash in muted ombre shades of orange and blue and violet, the air warm, the breeze gentle. Twin Cities outfit Night Moves captures the languid sounds of summer in their balmy '80s-infused psych pop, their album a postcard of summers past and daydreams of summers to come.
