Todd's Picks

Best of 2019

#1 – Billie Eilish – When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

This was a tough choice between this and Yola for #1, but I think Billie’s is unlike anything else out there.

This made me excited about the future of music.

#2 ­- Yola – Walk Through Fire

Stunning! That voice!

#3 – The Strumbellas – Rattlesnake

I LOVE this album so much! Joyous, sing-along music from a phenomenal live band.

#4 – Thom Yorke – Anima

Not for everyone but I appreciate his soundscapes and cool, trance-like beats. More hypnotic than his work in

Radiohead.

#5 – Sleater-Kinney – The Center Won’t Hold

The final album with the original 3 members. Many long-time fans weren’t digging this, but I thought there was

a lot to like here. And their new stuff sounds great live.

#6 – P!nk – Hurts 2B Human

Always been a favorite artist. Some great cuts on this: Walk Me Home, Can We Pretend, Love Me Anyway (with Chris Stapleton).

#7 – Sam Fender – Hypersonic Missiles

Critics’ Choice Brit Award winner in ’18, this is an excellent debut album. He’s being compared to Springsteen with his raw sound and

lyrical storytelling, and he’s only 25.

#8 – Saint Motel – Motion Picture Soundtrack: Part 1

Kind of artsy and cool. If you like Panic at the Disco, you’ll probably like these guys. Parts 2 & 3 are coming soon.

#9 – Vampire Weekend – Father of the Bride

Full of great songs like Harmony Hall and This Life.

#10 – Alice Merton – Mint

Contains one of my favorite songs of the year: No Roots. Other excellent tracks include Lash Out.
