The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: TOY

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: TOY

What: Happy in The Hollow

When: January 2019

Where: Tough Love

Why: There's so much to love about TOY's Happy in The Hollow. It's a magnificent, ruffled-collar dandy of a record, with devilish, motorik beats and definite kraut tendencies, wrapped together with plenty of vaporous, warped wonderland psych wizardry. A helter skelter hodgepodge, this record is a miscellany of mammoth, marvelous sounds.
