I co-hosted two episodes of We Own This Town Music at the end of 2019, running down eight of my favorite songs by local artists over the previous 12 months. In total, regular host Michael Eades and I shouted out 16 songs ranging from whispery indie folk to Halloween-themed hip-hop.
Journalist, photographer and bon vivant Lance Conzett joins host Michael Eades for a special two part episode in which a moment of reflection is taken for a few notable releases from 2019. It’s important to note, this is decidedly not a Best Of episode but distinctly a Highlights collection.
Over the course of the next two episodes, Lance and Michael share eight tracks a piece; sixteen releases ranging from delightful Pop, to intense Punk to the peacefully Ambient. However, sixteen tracks from a year of music is barely scratching the surface. These selections are, clearly, subjective and not in any way holistic. Stack ranking a year of releases is a fool’s errand and we won’t even attempt it.
Enjoy part one of our selections and do yourself a favor by diving into the WOTT Music archive for even more phenomenal music released throughout 2019.
