The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: The Twilight Sad

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: The Twilight Sad


When: January 2019

Where: Rock Action Records

Why: Some of the most uplifting depressing songs you'll ever listen to. As intense and gorgeously glum as ever, The Twilight Sad's 2019 effort is an emotional, intimate, beast of a record. Listening to IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME, it's easy to be reminded why Robert Smith is a fan - murky, passionate songs with plenty of sturm und drang fuzz and darkness, centered around the heartbeat that is James Graham's ardent brogue.
