The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: The S.L.P.

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.


THE S.L.P. | The Official Website

Who: The S.L.P.

What: The S.L.P.

When: August 2019

Where: Sony

Why: You'll probably recognize the name Sergio Pizzorno from Kasabian, but he's also the one and only behind The S.L.P. It's perhaps no surprise that you'll hear shades of Kasabian throughout this self-titled effort, but there's also a lot of experimenting happening within these songs. Pizzorno plays sonic magpie incredibly well, sampling anything and everything and spinning those disparate sounds into fantastical, pulsating affairs. Highly listenable, highly enjoyable.
