The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: DEHD

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: Water

When: May 2019

Where: Fire Talk

Why: A moody, meaningful melange of noise from Windy City trio DEHD. Water has it all; from gritty fuzz to defiant harmonies to gauzy girl group ghosts to almost playful angularity. And that's just for starters. This dynamic record is almost too good to be true, and it's a true joy to listen to.
