2019 was an interesting year. I returned in the middle of the year or so. I had to go back through tweets to find it. But there it is.
You might remember that I stepped back from the site about a year ago for personal stuff.
Well, I got bored so I’m coming back starting July.

Honestly, I don’t know if coming back was positive or negative but I do enjoy writing about Korean music. So here’s my list of favorite albums of the year. As per usual, this isn’t in any order, but more of free-flowing, beer-enabled list of the music that I thought was awesome.
Love X Stereo : 37X and 37C
I remember when Annie told me about their plan for 37. Externally, I was 1000% behind the idea of 37 songs in a year. Internally, my thought was “you guys are fucking crazy.” They launched their Patreon and got to work. It’s taken longer than originally planned but 37X and 37C showcase the best of Love X Stereo.
From their origins as a three-piece to their work as a duo, their work ethic resulted in a portfolio of work that they should be proud of. With the 37 Project completed, I’m really curious where they plan to move now.
