The Best of 2019 Pt 2; Flashlite #569

2019pt2

Happy new year, everyone. Today we finish the list of best albums in 2019 (top 13). In my opinion, Danny and the Doorknobs return album Jukebox in the LA River stands out in it’s playful quality among the rest of this year’s production. The band also released another digital only album as Trotsky Icepick this year, making a double whammy for all those who were thirsty for their sound since the breakup in the 90s. Our hope is that the band will stay together for many more years to come. Tune in next week for our part 3 where we introduce many nice mini albums (shorter than 30 minutes) and a few other albums that didn’t make the list.

Leyla McCallaA couple of new things today. Ty Segall is in action again, putting out a demo version of his last year’s album Twins, now renamed into Gemini. So the concept is now closed, it’s a twin record. He also has a band called Fuzz, but now, to complete the confusion, there’s a different band called The Fuzz, from Memphis, fronted by Hector, supposedly brother of Harlan T. Bobo, although I’m not so sure if it’s really not the same elusive rock’n’roll songwriter. Jazz pianist Keith Jarrett recorded a jam boogie record in 1986 called No End, in which he recorded all the instruments. This came out only now, after 27 years. The rest of the show is bit more conventional. We have a new band called White Denim from Austin, TX and a New Orleans cellist Leyla McCalla who recorded an LP with Langston Hughes lyrics. By the way, the house in which he lived in Cleveland is on sale these days. Also, we check out Evan Dando’s tribute to Tarka Cordell and Lemonheads’ de-luxe reissues. But we start off with Dream Syndicate who had an amazing reunion gig in Cleveland last week.
