The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: MNNQNS

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: Body Negative

When: October 2019

Where: FatCat Records

Why: Body Negative is an enigma. This record, from Rouen-based MNNQNS, is a little post-punk, a little nouveau wave, a little 'gazey, and a little pop. It's a swaggering, jagged-edged mass of unrelenting, unrepentant chaos - sometimes controlled chaos, sometimes anything but. MNNQNS often colors outside the lines.
