It was another great year for new music. We got a new album from The Black Keys for the first time in 5 years and for the first time in over 10 years from The Raconteurs. Jeremy Ivey stepped out of the shadow of his singer/songwirter wife Margo Price with a strong solo debut. The reunited Vivian Girls released perhaps their best record to date. The Coathangers continued to grow a more melodic sound without without forgetting how to kick it hard on The Devil You Know. We got great debut albums from Fontaines D.C., Pinky Pinky and Tequila Jay & The Diablos. And local bands Dunies and Tank Top both released really fun garage rock EPs. Here a playlist of 40 of our favorite songs released in 2019.
