The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Tallies

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: Tallies

What: Tallies

When: January 2019

Where: Kanine Records/Hand Drawn Dracula

Why: Lustrous, shimmering dreampop. This self-titled stunner from Tallies is a charmer, with chirpy, sun-dappled jangle cozying up to plenty of fuzz. There's a sweetness to Tallies, a sunny day/open road promise. Sarah Cogan's vocals call to mind the irrepressible nymphs Susanna Hoffs and Harriet Wheeler, and against the dreamy velvet background her powdery tones are irresistible, though that goes for the record as a whole.
