The Fashionably Late Top 125 of 2019: Prettiest Eyes

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: Prettiest Eyes

What: Volume 3

When: July 2019

Where: Castle Face

Why: Frenzied, immense psych-noise-punk-pop. LA's Prettiest Eyes unleashed a beast with Volume 3, a mammoth bacchanal of fuzz and chaos, a feast of throbbing bass, diabolical drums, and maniacal keys. This three-headed monster breathes all sorts of fire in these towering, flame-throwing fever dreams - an album of hot-blooded, hard to resist pandemonium. Long live Prettiest Eyes.
