Music: Pass The Mic: Artists and labels on 2019

Aaron Rice

1. What are your top five albums that were released in 2019? (In order 1-5)

  1. FKA twigs - MAGDALENE
  2. Velvet Negroni - Neon Brown
  3. Toro y Moi - Outer Peace
  4. Sophie - Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides (I think it was 2018... but still on heavy rotation)
  5. Thom Yorke - Anima

2. What band did you discover in 2019 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?

Velvet Negroni. The depth of sound design, lyrics... all very moving and energizing. His music makes life more beautiful.

3. How will you remember 2019? (In terms of music)

2019 will always be the year I witnessed the FKA Magdalene live show.

4. What can we look forward to from you in 2020?

At least a few new singles, if not more.

5. What records are you looking forward to most in 2020?

Oof I haven't even been paying attention to what's coming up. I'm a very slow music fan.

6. What is your favorite way to pass time while on tour? Any apps, podcasts, etc you're into?

Listening to classical music, sing alongs, true crime podcasts.
