The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Psychic Lemon

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: Psychic Lemon

What: Freak Mammal

When: November 2019

Where: Drone Rock Records

Why: "Space rock power" is how Cambridge band Psychic Lemon describes themselves. Having been utterly conquered by their Freak Mammal LP, I can tell you that that's more than a bit of an understatement. Freak Mammal is an unholy monster of an album, a tempest of heavy, kraut-wrapped psych that both overpowers with the sheer force of its sonic brutality and mesmerizes with hypnotic waves of spaced out, repetitive deep space drone. Resistance is futile.
