Most overlooked albums of 2019?

Recommended Posts

What albums should receive more praise/credit than they actually received? Let’s not discuss mainstream artists in this thread, please. 

 

Let me start with a couple of examples:

Káryyn - The Quanta Series

Recommended tracks: PURGATORY, MIRROR ME, ALEPPO


Essential lyrics: 

 

Walked in and screaming out
I'm still where I was exploring
At the mouth of
Mountains

And your heat passed down
Making it hard to move
And your limbs put out
Making it hard to move

But can you reach
No you won't have to worry
As long as I'm here
No you won't have to worry

So shields down
You will be carried
And I'll drag you out
Of this purgatory

 

For the fans of: Björk (especially Vespertine), Jenny Hval, Julia Holter, Julianna Barwick

 

Kelsey Lu - Blood

Recommended tracks: Due West, Foreign Car, I’m Not In Love


Essential lyrics:

 

Worship the ground that you walked on below 
Your pedestal
My mind put you onto a throne soon enough
I'll outgrow

Didn't know my feet were too big for my shoes
Running in them led me to bruise
Falling over
Running home to you
You had both my fingers and toes turning blue
So afraid of cutting me loose
You're holding onto me
You're holding on

 

For the fans of: Solange, Kelela, Weyes Blood, Sudan Archives

 

Jamila Woods - LEGACY! LEGACY!

Recommended tracks: ZORA, GIOVANNI, MUDDY
 

Essential lyrics:

 

Motherfuckers won't shut up
We been in a war, my God
Some country shit won't cut it
He need the blues he could plug in

 

For the fans of: Erykah Badu, Janelle Monáe, Blood Orange

Brol La Suite by Angèle

R-14373872-1573243711-5846.jpeg.jpg

 

My fav lyrics:

 

 Hier encore on était liés
J'étais celle de tes rêves
Celle qui comblait tes nuits, celle à marier
'Faut dire que ce fut bref
La nuit n'a duré qu'une seule soirée
Genre romantisme express
T'as pris le temps d'venir mais de pas de rester
Tu m'embrasses puis tu m'laisses

Recommended tracks: Moi, Desert Rose, Summers In Vegas

Pay me in fresh dough or Mexican Coke
Or take me home

Someone who sold 7M albums is rather mainstream. This is my OP, so either read it or create a new thread for yourself and stay gone

Sudan Archives' Athena comes to mind! she's a classically-trained violinist so she integrates those talents into Athena, which is an otherwise mostly pop and R&B album jj2I'd also add that Quelle Chris' and Vagabon's albums were both pretty overlooked too

Tea about Athena tea1 Stones Throw roster of artists is very strong so pretty much all of their releases are always something... outstanding, but also overlooked because of the niche
