Plutonic Rainbows

Albums 2019

I listened to quite a lot of stuff this year. These were my favourite things in 2019. The Boards of Canada entry is a compilation of other artists they curated for the Warp 30th Anniversary so it doesn’t really belong here but was extremely good.

Some are albums from decades past that I rediscovered buried in my collection - musing on memory and in the process, unearthing some things I’d rather have forgotten.
