The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Sleaford Mods

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.


SLEAFORD MODS - Eton Alive - Music

Who: Sleaford Mods

What: Eton Alive

When: February 2019

Where: Extreme Eating Records

Why: Eton Alive. More like eaten alive. Eaten alive by Eton alums. Sleaford Mods was doing more than just being clever with the title of 2019's record. Their scathing, sneering record is a lurching, threatening takedown of modern Britain - including, but not limited to, the degeneration of Britain under the thumb of Eton-bred elites. Eton Alive is dark, grimy, and smart. It's an album that reflects how fucked up things are, and how furious we should be.
