On our Best Albums list, 2019 brought us future classics from Fontaines D.C., Dave, The Murder Capital, FEET, slowthai and black midi to name just a few. Those and plenty more feature too on our favourite tracks of the year.

Picked out by editor David Smith from the hundreds which have featured on these pages during the past twelve months, Sinead O’Brien, Dry Cleaning, Black Country New Road, Kate Tempest and Working Men’s Club are just some who have added to a year which, whilst nostalgia has continued its grip on the mainstream, has quietly created a vintage all of its own.

Live Review: Black Country, New Road at Rough Trade, Bristol

Posted on 03 Oct 2019 at 7:45am

We’re only three quarters of the way through the year and so it’s a little early to analyse, but it’s been well reported that jazz has made something of an unlikely comeback in 2019.

It’s a sweeping soundbite that isn’t entirely true, but it does have some basis in reality. Although SEED Ensemble’s recent Mercury nomination could arguably be dismissed as the ‘token world music entry’, it’s harder to ignore the inroads that The Comet Is Coming are making. Those might be more traditional jazz ensembles, but the influence of the genre is strongly felt elsewhere.

Despite comprising the key components of a rock/indie band, black midi completely ignore traditional ideas such as structure, their music giving the impression of spontaneity and therefore creativity. Similarly, Squid are not bound by the trappings of the rules and, as simple as it sounds, incorporate brass seamlessly. The barriers are being broken down.

Also leading the charge are Black Country, New Road. Tonight’s (October 1st) gig in Bristol is one of many sold-out shows the band are playing on an autumn tour, despite having only two songs in the public domain. More a collective than a group, the seven-piece have an air of ‘the only kids at school who took music seriously’, yet have a maturity beyond their years.
