2019 In Scrobbles
So how did the year shake out music wise? last.fm says:
Looks like I listened to slightly less music this year than the past couple, 23,958 tracks.
The kiddo loves her some Twenty One Pilots so they’re usually a goto when we're driving to school. Hometown and Cut My Lip are two favorites.
The new Drab Majesty album this year was particularly good. I saw a bloke with one of their t-shirts in Starbucks the other week and got chatting about gigs we’ve been to.
In November I discovered Preoccupations and they were the find of the year. If Editors and Interpol had a child, its name would be Preoccupations.
Boy Harsher are an electroclash band and when they get going I defy anyone to not nod your head. Good driving music.
Rush. Because Rush.
Keychains & Snowstorms is Soft Cell’s 10 disc box set. And it’s amazing. The remix of Meet Murder My Angel is sublime. Bless Spotify for having it.
In 2018 Orbital released Monsters Exist and I still loved it this year. The synth melody on The Raid is the best.
And my old muckers Rammstein. Their new album is great. Go watch any of their 2019 concert footage on YouTube.
