The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Crocodiles

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: Crocodiles

What: Love Is Here

When: February 2019

Where: Deaf Rock Records

Why: It's lucky number seven for Crocodiles with Love Is Here. Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell's Love is full of their tantalizingly debauched, four-in-the-morning fuzz, gleefully corrupt dancefloor grooves tailor-made for the wanton and the restless. The gent's restlessness continues, leading to songs that are full of jitters and heavy-lidded lyrics, at once opiatic and dynamic. It's hard not to fall in lust with Love.
