The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Tempers

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: Tempers

What: Private Life

When: October 2019

Where: Dais Records

Why: Sinuous, subterranean synthpop. Midnight blue and mysterious, Private Life exists in the darkest shadows. The Dystopian dance party Tempers created on this record is a gracefully glitchy, smoke-filled tangle of heady escapism and radiant retreat.
