New Surachai record sounds really Industrial heavy and noise laden.

I wish Surachai would just go back to making great black metal.

One of the my favorite labels active at the moment. Really cool album title here. More mellow, relaxing and optimistic than most of their well known stuff though.

It's been a quiet year so far. I haven't found many full-lengths yet, but I'm looking forward to new albums probably from Carly Rae Jepsen, Torres, Charly Bliss etc. Some of the good stuff so far includes:
Solange - When I Get Home (neo-soul/R&B)
Sharon Van Etten - Remind Me Tomorrow (indie singer-songwriter)
Benoît Pioulard & Sean Curtis Patrick - Avocationals (ambient)
Simon Scott - Soundings (ambient)
Julia Kent - Temporal (post-minimalist cello stuff)

Well, that's pretty much all of the good stuff. >_> I didn't get around to American Football or La Dispute yet, since I haven't been in the mood for emo, but I guess they might be good.

Front Line Assembly's latest is decent but not exceptionnal, best song is easily "Wake Up The Coma" with Nick Holmes.

Front Line Assembly - Wake Up The Coma

The new The Young Gods, however, is pretty nice

The Young Gods - Data Mirage Tangram

Both were realased in February (and both are invisible in the database, for those interested)

Three months gone and Moodie Black are on a roll, having already released two EPs. They've bit expending thir sound quite a bit, while still being true to their bleak noise rap.
Highly recommended!

Dreampop/New Wave admixture. First track sounds pretty much like a californian 80's summer night.



Converge's crew get up to something off their beaten track. Slow, stripped down and emotional, interspersed with some driving moments.

Carly Rae Jepsen's fourth album dropped today. Not disappointed at all. Queen of releasing pop albums of the year:

Been listening quite a bit of dungeon-synth lately. This one is extremely good. And it has dinosaurs (dinosynth?)

Great abstract/ experimental industrial music with drone and noise accent. I've been craving for something this ever since amazing The Space Between You & the World from 2017.

Dylan Neal, the mind behind Botanist leaves the hammered dulcimer home to treat us to an electronic album of many faces. A mingling ominous dark ambient, moody trip-hop and drone textures makes for a listen that's hard to pin down.

So best non-metal 2019?

I already posted Carly Rae Jepsen, but other than that, the Charly Bliss sophomore is a great evolution from their debut. They started off grungy and noisy, like Wheezer on helium, but they've embraced straight-up, synth-fuelled power pop.

100 gecs' debut, 1000 gecs, is the craziest shit I've heard in a while. A jumbled bag of bubblegum bass, emo, crunkcore, ska, anything. It sounds like an ironic meme project but it's not. And sure, it's a bit inconsistent, but I can't stop listening. You'll probably hate it!

Hannah Diamond, poster girl for PC Music, finally released her debut full-length. All gloss and surface, distilling the hyperpop aesthetic to its purest.

I think Litku Klemetti is the decade's greatest new artist on the Finnish scene. Dunno if it appeals outside the national context, with her musical references to Finnish golden oldies and psych pop/prog, but she's released solid 4 albums now in as many years and is only getting better.

I didn't listen to FKA twigs' earlier stuff, but her latest is the closest to what Kate Bush would sound like in 2019 (if she wasn't old and tired). I.e. really good.

And finally, Caroline Polachek (of Chairlift fame) released a really solid album of art pop tunes which blends 80s, 90s and 2010s influence. Also the coolest music video of the year, if you dig 90s/00s supernatural teen shows (who wouldn't).













Also some really nice ambient albums that I'm not going to link here, from Kali Malone, Félicia Atkinson and A Winged Victory for the Sullen, for example.

Caroline Polachek is my fucking jam, barely a day passes that I don't listen to "So Hot You're Hurting My Feelings"
