Favorite music of 2019

There being so little popular consensus or even popular awareness of what music is released compared to the more limited number of movies each year, we won’t get much of a debate going here on my annual favorite-CDs list. Still, I’ve been doing these lists since 2012,¬†and they serve as personal markers on what I listened to and liked the previous years.

As I type this I was tempted to juggle titles around on the list, except that I already put them in order for the photo. So, consider the list below a rough guide to my (why not?) Top 13, placed in descending order below and the opposite in the photo above:

13. Bob Dylan: “Travelin’ Thru, 1967 to 1969: The Bootleg Series Vol. 15”

12. Bruce Springsteen: “Western Stars”

11. Adia Victoria: “Silences”

10. Lizzo: “Cuz I Love You”

9. Various Artists: “The Daisy Age”

8. The National: “I Am Easy to Find”

7. L7: “Scatter the Rats”

6. Chuck Cleaver: “Send Aid”

5. Kim Gordon: “No Home Record”

4. Weyes Blood: “Titanic Rising”

3. Sleater-Kinney: “The Center Won’t Hold”

2. Todd Snider: “The Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3”

and my No. 1 pick:

Billie Eilish: “When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”

Your turn: Did you listen to any of the above, or to anything new this year that you liked?
