Time has flown by so fast this year, that I just realized I hadn’t posted my favorite albums from 2019 yet, as I’m also in the process of making a list of top albums from the 2010s as well (which is getting interesting…). So here goes…
- Lorelle Meets the Obsolete – De Facto
- The Stargazer Lillies – Occabot
- Vanishing Twin – The Age of Immunology
- Listening Center – Retrieving
- Memory Drawings – Phantom Lights
- Yellow6 – Shifting Sands of Time
- Tawdry Otter – Fiction & Poetry
- Epic45 – Sun Memory
- Land Equivalents – A Straight Line With Gain
- Jon Brooks – Emotional Freedom Techniques
The top two were very tight, but LMTO are just knocking it out of the park at the moment and the extended jam of “La Maga” puts this one over the top.
Lorelle Meets the Obsolete
Speaking of which, Lorena and Beto of LMTO are gearing up for an EP that releases March 13. Re-Facto contains 2 remixed tracks from the album, along with 2 new ones, pressed on a limited edition translucent orange and green vinyl 12”.

As we make another trip around the wheel of life, let me take a moment to look back at some of the releases that made the year a little more bearable. Drumroll please (rimshot where necessary)…
- Landing – Bells In New Towns
This band continues to amaze with each release, progressively fine tuning their own unique soundscapes. Well done.
- Ulrika Spacek – Suggestive Listening EP
Probably my favorite new band of the moment – hoping for another full-length in the near future
- My Autumn Empire – Oh, Leaking Universe
- The Asteroid #4 – Collide
- Spiritualized – And Nothing Hurt
- Adrien75 – The Deep State
Although Mr. 75 has released several albums last year, this is my fave of the bunch
- Chatham Rise – Meadowsweet
- Lazy Salon – Boot Magna
- A Year In The Country – The Quietened Mechanisms (Various)
- Lowtide – Southern Mind
- I Am Robot And Proud – Lucky Static
