It has just dawned on me that 2019 is rapidly coming to a close. I've listened to plenty of music this year, as I do every year, but for whatever reason I'm only now starting to check out a bunch of stuff that was released in 2019 and decide what stands out. I suspect many of you have already got a handful or more of albums that you really like from this year. I'd love to know what they are and why you think they're worthy of attention. In the meantime, I'll be playing catch up and will hopefully post a list of my favorites before the end of 2023.
