Best of 2019

I listened to more new music in 2019 than I did the year before, which was quite a step back from previous years. In 2018 I spent more time digging into back catalogs than I did exploring new music, and was still listening to a lot of talk-y podcasts. This year I moved a tape deck to a permanent place in the kitchen, instituted a 'less TV/more records' policy in the livingroom, and thinned my talk-y podcast queue considerably - down to like, just two - which has resulted in more music-listening space on the bike and at work. It's so nice.

I still kept up with as much new punk and hardcore as ever. Punk in 2019 is better than it's ever been. I streamlined my interest in new rap music to a chunk of bangers from trusted sources, rather than trying to take it all in, which is easy for an old person like me that doesn't give a shit about a trap beat anymore and wants nothing to do with sad boy, cloud, or any of that talentless fake shit. I added in more beat tapes, which, oddly enough, given my lifelong love of hip-hop, was never really my thing. It seems that as I crawl deeper and deeper into jazz music, as any old-timer would, my tolerance and appreciation of instrumental music in general has expanded.

I used to spend an insane amount of time writing out blurbs for these and uploading all the album art. People really liked it, and that was cool. But I don't have the time anymore. Sorry.

Anyway, here it is...
