There’s a good 20-30 minute playlist I’m sure. The whole lot is very smart. And I felt the same with the last Tool and also Nick Cave.

I like a couple of songs, but I generally don't find Lana Del Rey's music that interesting or compelling, and this album doesn't change that.

I have always been interested in checking out new albums that interest me and have actively done so for the past few years. I've just had a count through my "2019" albums folder and I have 128 albums in there. Far out.

I have a few still to listen to but have listened to most. I really should keep an excel spreadsheet going or something.

This came out earlier in the year, but I just recently found out about it. Min is a live composition for electronics and synthesizer by Sam Shalabi. He normally works with oud, guitar, patchwork compositions, and large ensembles, so this more minimal approach is relatively new for him.

Whatever criticisms of the Lana Del Rey album I've heard, and some are probably perfectly valid, I just can't get over how pleasing it is to my ears. Some of the downright prettiest melodies I've heard in a long time, and not "pretty" in the damning-with-faint-praise sense -- I mean stuff that feels, to me, really and truly elite from a compositional standpoint. I can't bring myself to care to analyze it beyond that. It's just beautiful music.

There have been a few other albums that have stuck with me this year (Weyes Blood, Springsteen, Angel Olsen), but mostly I've spent the year listening to a lot of old jazz, even more than usual. That's where the mystery is for me these days :thumbsup:

I discovered Marcus King this year too! Got to see him twice, including a show where he played only material around his first album. They are a killer band and I am looking forward to El Dorado in January.

Somehow I've forgotten to post about my favorite find of 2019, Kiefer Shackelford, who performs under the name Kiefer. He makes a jazzy kind of instrumental funk/hip-hop driven by piano and bass synthesizer. He put out two EPs this year, Bridges and Superbloom.

Bridges


Superbloom

Michael Kiwanuka's new one "Kiwanuka" is a really tough one to beat. Sturgill is right up there though.

What was a good loud, aggressive rock album from this year? Preferably not metal

I guess the Black Midi album sort of counts, but I'm looking for something more visceral, less cerebral
