2019 Music List

A little late on the 2019 favorite albums of the year list, but here it is!

2019 Music Recap:
1585 albums listened to.
1005 different artists.
7444 different songs. 21680 listens in total.
(These numbers not being exclusively 2019 releases, just everything in total this past year.)

Most of this is organized by how often the album found itself in rotation and how I’m feeling at this very moment. If I did this list again tomorrow it’d change up.

Living in Denial by Michael Kiwanuka is my track of the year. Horse Jumper of Love’s album So Divine somehow just found itself being played over and over and over again. Over two dozen listens to it and I still love it. A couple of albums here actually released at the end of 2018 but I didn’t dig into until early 2019 so I’m making rare exceptions.
