Sinead, you made it, woohoo!
  3:26am Curious Tom:

I think my favourite release of 2019 was It Won't Be Like This All The Time by The Twilight Sad. One of their best albums from the last few releases I reckon.
Avatar 3:38am Rob Gee:

So many faves... Stargazer Lilies was one...
Avatar 3:47am mariano:

Been so much I've heard this year that I love. I find myself kind of tongue-tied though when someone asks me what bands/artists I'm into because I keep hearing so much stuff on FMU I've never heard before that I really like.
  4:03am robb:

I'm leaning towards RIDE's This Is Not a Safe Place as my favorite of the year...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08am Guido from Cologne:

Good morning Sinead and everybody!

Had been busy debugging.
Thus I'm a bit late.

Almost spring like weathe here in Germany.
Christmas time became warm in recent years.
Climate chane I guess.
  4:12am dmz:

great show this year was: the wild reeds at hardly strictly bluegrass 2019 in golden gate park, sf!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am Guido from Cologne:

Can you play "Chain" from the Hunter album by occasion?
No one plays "Chain" and it is my personal fave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23am Guido from Cologne:

Most memorable gig this year ...
---------------------------------------
... came from an Irish band:
post-rockers And So I Watch You From Afar from Belfast.

I had seen them 10 years ago and it had been incredible!

At the merch I bought their debut album and in the monthsand years to follow I enjoyed it so much, that i knew it by heart.

With the years more albums came, the line up changed and their shows weren't that wild anymore.

I had a little pity, I never would get the stuff from the debut as a live performance anymore.

And this year?
They did a debut album aniversary tour!
They played the debut from the beginning to the end!
I wasn't prepared!
I was totally amazed!

And it happened to be the last show of the tour.
And they stated it was intentional this lst show to happen in Cologne -with the emphasis this not to be a compliment- since the liked the Cologne show 10 years ago most!
How is this?
  4:33am robb:

Gig would be Oh Sees at the Warsaw in Brooklyn. blew me out of the water
  4:33am Curious Tom:

I think having a cheeky little break in Munich and seeing Radical Face has been the best gig of the year. Ben is such a nice guy and hung around after the show to chat with fans. It was great.
Biffy Clyro in the Bataclan in Paris was a fine gig too. Foo Fighters were sadly the worst. Pretty much a painting by numbers gig though the support band Slaves were fantastic so it wasn't a waste.
Avatar 4:39am mariano:

I saw the Oh Sees at 285 Kent in Brooklyn a few years back, with the Blind Shake opening. Great show, great space, though sadly another casualty of the real-estate market.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Jan-Willem:

There has been some cool stuff this year, like a really good gig by Iclandic jazz quartet ADHD. Went back to see them in Mechelen after enjoying their show in Cologne very much a year earlier.
But to stay in transmission fashion, Madrugada did an anniversary tour, with their album Industrial silence. They played in the Roma in Antwerp, (wich is a gorgeous old cinema from the 1920's.) That one really stuck, even after 20 years it sounded fresh and sharp as ever. Such a great album and they were absolutely killing it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am Guido from Cologne:

Another amazing gig was performes by a young Egypt group:
they're called Lekhfa, kind of a supergrop from Cairo.
(Three solo-artists united plus rhythm section.)

Brilliant fusion of Funk/Hip-Hop-beats with traditional influences. But this is a bad description.

Get their album!
It's brilliant!
lekhfa.bandcamp.com...

If any show announced, do not miss them!

The whole young Cologne Egypt community seemed to have been present at the show..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52am Guido from Cologne:

Saw Oh Sees last years summer.
Sure a highlight.

It was cooking!
Musically and literlly!
I was lucky to reserve a "boy seat" at the side door with fresh air and good stage sight.

No doubt you can by any of their albums without disappointment!
Just too many albums!
How about recommendations?
  5:01am debt collector:

Good morning and love from Burlington VT.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04am Guido from Cologne:

ASIWYFA !!! :-)
Avatar 5:06am mariano:

@Guido: I like Putrifiers II. "Lupine Dominus" is one of my favorite tracks of theirs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08am Guido from Cologne:

What do you think about the drummer having a tatoo of the band logo on his chest? Isn't that dedication?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08am Guido from Cologne:

Thank you Mariano!
Avatar 5:12am mariano:

Didn't know about the drummer's tattoo, that is dedication!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31am Jan-Willem:

Ha great to hear this squid song again! my own houseplants are moving along now :-)
  5:48am Cooh John:

Joining late playing Santa's little helper. Great show. Best show was Hugs and Kisses a local band in my town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56am Guido from Cologne:

Thank you and CU!
