ITHACA UK’s 'The Language of Injury' is right up there with our albums of the year. What other standout records from 2019 do you think deserve more attention than they’re getting? Name and fame them below.
The No. 12 Looks Like You, SeeYouSpaceCowboy, Carbomb and Cult Of Luna have all dropped bangers this year. And yes, ITHACA UK's TLOI is excellent and they were great at ATG.
Body Hound with the amazing No Moon is album of the year so far
Albums by Jambinai, Pelican, St Pierre Snake Invasion and Car Bomb. Holly Herndon's PROTO is bonkers and visionary and Pharmakon's Devour sounds like the audible equivalent of a gaping hellscape (in the best possible way). Its brilliant! Only just heard Mono's latest and its their best album for a long time!
We Never Learned To Live - The Sleepwalk Transmissions
Her name is Calla - Animal Choir
The Algorithm - Brute Force. He was one of the standout performers for me.
The St. Pierre Snake Invasion - ‘Caprice Enchante’
JOHN -‘Out Here On The Fringes’
Alarmist - Sequesterer
Jambinai 잠비나이 - ONDA
LITE - Multiple
... and I second We Never Learned To Live and The St. Pierre Snake Invasion!
Ithaca without a doubt.
Employed to Serve, We Never Learned to Live and Cult of Luna are all way up there too.
American Football 3 is insane
Drom by Halshug
Infest the Rats Nest by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Samsara by Venom Prison
Swarming Season by Geist
Pile - Green and Grey is the best album I've heard this year. USA Nails - Life Cinema is up there too.
