Jeff's Best of the Rest of 2019 (with a Monday Mix!)

Lots of other good albums came out this year, and these are the ones that were my favorites but didn't make the final cut.

* STL GLD - The New Normal
* Tami T - High Pitched and Moist
* Angel Olsen - All Mirrors
* Tacocat - This Mess is a Place
* Abigail Lapell - Getaway
* Bikini Sleepover - Bikini Sleepover's First Sleepover
* Sofia Talvik - Paws of a Bear
* Lula Wiles - What Will We Do
* Potty Mouth - SNAFU
* Defoe - Too Soon to Cry
* Clara Baker - Things to Burn
* Julia Jacklin - Crushing
* David Wax Museum - Line of Light
* Alex Lahey - The Best of Luck Club
* Odessa - All Things
* Infinity Crush - Virtual Heaven

This was an interesting year musically, with a pretty strong gap between stuff that was awesome and stuff that didn't have the same staying power. Plus, the trend toward seven song albums, more EPs, and one-off singles (thanks to the way streaming is changing the way most people listen to music) means some really interesting stuff on the horizon plus kind of makes people like me who love a cohesive album of music a little anxious. We'll see...

Some of the key songs of the year, on an easy playlist to enjoy as you prepare for Christmas this week:
