Best Records of the Year 2019: 1-20

As we said yesterday, we now have 40 records for our best of the year list. So, after the first round of LPs, comprising positions between 40 and 21, it’s time to show & rank our Top 20 albums of 2019. Those that we haven't been able to get out of our heads and deserve a standing ovation and, most importantly, constant spins.

So, in the meantime, enjoy the records... and happy Holidays!

Best Records of the Year 2019: 40-21

After our favorite EPs, now is time to unveil our Best Records of 2019! As we said in the previous post, the last twelve months we have published way less than we would have liked. So, in order to "repair" that scarcity of music (many groups left in the pipeline), we have thought it necessary to increase the number of bands included on the list, from 30 to 40, splitting the post in two. Therefore, here are our mandatory albums, the ones that have created our personal soundtrack and have helped us trough this incredibly long 2019, with this first chapter covering LPs from 40 to 21. Amazing albums, that deserve to be listened. And stay tuned, the Top 20 arrives tomorrow!

40. Struck Gold - Sprinters
39. Aniquilación - Los Punsetes
38. Ripe for Anarchy - Business of Dreams
37. Memory - Vivian Girls
36. Slow Century - I Was a King
35. It’s Real - Ex Hex
34. Birds Songs of a Killjoy - Bedouine
33. Río Arga - Río Arga
32. West Bay Playroom - Holiday Ghosts

30. A New Illusion - Rose Elinor Dougall
29. Reward for Effort - House Deposit
28. Gazing Globe - Outer Spaces

Best EPs of the Year 2019

We won’t miss 2019. Most certainly, it has been the worst year we can remember from a personal standpoint. Hospital, losses, and an exhausting level of intensity, while at the same time an appalling feeling of standstill, although some changes in the late third of the year are giving us some hope. Consequently, the Blog production has also suffered, something we deeply regret and we aim to readdress in 2020. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t listened to music, and that we aren’t ready to begin with our best of the year lists. As always (you can check previous posts at the bottom of this page) we have selected our 15 favorite EPs (for us, they are comprised from 3 to 6 songs). A collection of gems that we have enjoyed the most over 2019. Hope you like them (at least as much as we do) and remember to stay tuned, more lists coming soon!

15. Not Yours! - Annie Taylor
14.  Dial H for Hannah Barberas - The Hannah Barberas
13. Daydream Hawker - Go Fever
12. Dear Natalie - Crake
11. Growing Pains - Abbie Ozard
10. Midnight Language - Slideshow
9.  Outside - Molly Linen
8.  Unarticulated Wants - The Black Fever  
7.  Fenómeno - Dois
6.  Old Names for New Shapes - Wojtek the Bear
5.  All the Ships - Lost Ships 
4.  All the Same - Fanclub
3Video Days - Hobby Club
2En Garde - Flying Fish Cove 
1Get Bleak - Ducks Unlimited

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 249

After some intense days of work, decisions, anxiety and changes, we have landed on this long weekend with a spectacular TOP TEN JUKEBOX. It was more or less ready past week, but with so much hustle and bustle, we haven't been able to publish it before (add some technical problems to the mix, bye bye Soundcloud), but better late than never. These ten songs, a royal flush with several essential groups for this humble blog such as Jetstream Pony, The Persian Leaps, Basia Bulat or Eyelids, deserve to be listened carefully. And don't worry, we already know that we are in December and it's time for the best of the year lists... Have a nice Sunday and don't forget to stop by at our Spotify!
