The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Monster Rally

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: Monster Rally

What: Adventures on The Floating Island

When: September 2019

Where: Gold Robot Records

Why: Monster Rally's music sounds a bit like a soundtrack to a cult '60s indie flick getting beamed into the future. Adventures on The Floating Island is a tropical, slinky lounge fantasy, an electro-exotica poolside playground that's disarming and a little disorienting. Ted Feighan's imagination runs wild on Island, and he's created a perfect ode to escapism with these enticing, breezy creations.
