Scott Dellamore Poop 2019


.this.is.just.how.I.feel.

Each year brings complaints from many about the state of music. Not me.
But naturally, I wrote this the night is was due. So, cheers to procrastination.
Here’s what my year looked like:

Buy Tyler the Creator, Igor New or Used via Amazon    Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?]
1. Tyler the Creator, Igor – A wild, unexpected, passionate, and dramatic shift for the enigmatic personality that is Tyler the Creator.

Buy Anderson .Paak, Ventura New or Used via Amazon    Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?]
2. Anderson .Paak, Ventura – Contemporary Soul that bangs out the hits. The day that it released, I enjoyed 3 consecutive front-to-back listens. It’s hard to put down.

Buy Big Business, The Beast You Are New or Used via Amazon    Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?]
3. Big Business, The Beast You Are – So, there I was, talking with my wife when I blurted out one of my customary, “this one of my favorite records of the year” proclamations that I’m annoyingly know for. And she said, “Yeah, I can see that. You’ve listened to this more than anything else this year.” It was May. I’d being listening to it for only a month.
It still is in heavy rotation. Spotify told me so.

Buy Lizzo, Cuz I Love You New or Used via Amazon    Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?]
4 Lizzo, Cuz I Love You – I could insert silly pun/joke with “100% that Bitch” as the punchline, but it would seem forced. Bottom line: She’s really that great.

Buy Lightning Bolt, Sonic Citadel New or Used via Amazon    Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?]
5. Lightning Bolt, Sonic Citadel – Lighting Bolt took me by surprise this year. I haven’t been crazy about their albums since Hypermagic Mountain. Most polished vocals to date (still super unpolished) yet it’s still throwing boulders through my head.

Buy Swans, leaving meaning New or Used via Amazon    Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?]
6. Swans, leaving meaning. – Swans make me feel sad. and angry. and eventually tired, after all the sadness and anger consume me. But I also like to think about why “Swans” were Gira’s bird of choice. for a band name.

Okay! I’m back. I just googled it… Now, I get it! And it totally makes sense.

Buy Sturgill Simpson, Sound & Fury New or Used via Amazon    Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?]
7. Sturgill Simpson, Sound & Fury – I saw the anime movie this music was made for. It’s pretty weird. I like weird. This record, however, is not weird… but it is incredible.

Buy Michael Kiwanuka, Kiwanuka New or Used via Amazon    Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?]
8. Michael Kiwanuka, Kiwanuka – I’m glad I read a blurb about this guy somewhere. He should be glad too. He cracked my top 10.

Buy Purple Mountains by Purple Mountains New or Used via Amazon       Buy New or Used via Amazon       Rent via iTunes [?]
9. Purple Mountains, Purple Mountains – I didn’t listen to enough David Berman in my formattable years. A serious mistake that I’m atoning for. A lasting piece of music for him to leave the world with.

Buy Sunn 0))), Life Metal New or Used via Amazon    Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?]
10. Sunn 0))), Life Metal – Drone is a hard musical-pill for many to swallow. I’d suggest trying this one out. It’s pretty gorgeous. Fun Fact: Hildur Guðnadóttir, who won a Golden Globe for her score for the Joker, provided vocals and played cello on the record.
