The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Purple Pilgrims

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: Purple Pilgrims

What: Perfumed Earth

When: August 2019

Where: Flying Nun

Why: Gauzy, ethereal incantations. New Zealand's Purple Pilgrims craft sweeping, captivating songs, silken threads of soft, shimmering enchantment. Breathy vocals add to the dreamlike quality found throughout Perfumed Earth, and give voice to the mystical sensations emanating from these songs.
