Roobins’ Honorable mentions 2019 – Albums
These albums did not make it to our calendar, either I thought it useless to nominate them due to my colleagues’ taste – or lack of taste in this case – in music or It just didn’t make that final, agonizing, cut. To be completely honest, this could have easily been my submitted list for the yule calendar, it’s all about what I feel in the moment. These are some of the most awesome albums 2019 and I love each and every one of them! In order of release date, my honorable mentions of 2019, enjoy!
Turbo Island – Steve Strong
One man math-rock band awesomeness anyone? Well, hell yes!
The Capitalist Blues – Leyla McCalla
A protest album ala 2019. Calypso, zydeco and good ol’ blues coexist in this smorgasbord of music.
Dead Before You Know It – Sista Brytet
Four songs of Swedish punk awesomeness!
Birthday – Pom Poko
Crazy art-rock from Norway. Extremely good stuff!
Beachballin’ – Memory of Elephants
I have a thing for math-rock and this is top-notch math delivered with humor and finesse!
Spirituosa – Lykantropi
Swedish retro-rock with riffs to die for!
And Now for the Whatchamacallit – Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
Speaking of riffs… The best band name ever delivers at max!
Satis Factory – Mattiel
What great songwriting and such a cool delivery. Indie goodness!
Space Grade Assembly – Possum
This psych-rock with supreme riffs from Toronto is golden!
An Obelisk – titus andronicus
Dad-punk-rock! Yes, it’s a thing and it’s a very, very good thing!
Hasta El Cielo – Khruangbin
My chill album of the year. Helped me through stressful times at work. Love it!
Younger Years – Delta Sleep
Delta Sleep might be my favorite band. Super tight mathish rock with excellent vocals!
The Afterlife – The Comet Is Coming
Jazz album of the year and they released two of them, but his one is my favorite!
In The Sync – POLYSICS
Crazy, wacky Nintendo punk. Wow!
