Fellow music blog Gorilla Vs Bear has stayed remarkably on-brand since its beginning nearly 15 years ago, covering a mix of pop, dreampop, rap, electronic, indie rock and psych. (If that list of genres sounds like every blog, there is a distinct GvB je ne sais quoi to everything they cover.) The site's just published their Albums of 2019 list and it includes longtime GvB faves Lana Del Ray, Chromatics, Panda Bear, Weyes Blood, Toro Y Moi, FKA twigs, Angel Olsen, Tyler, the Creator, Big Thief, CFCF, Danny Brown, Jenny Hval, Laurel Halo, Freddie Gibbs + Madlib, Nivhek (Liz Harris of Grouper), Aldous Harding, and Caroline Polachek, as well as newer artists like Billie Eilish, Men I Trust, Carla Dal Forno, Yves Jarvis, Mega Bog, Nilufer Yanya, and JPEGMAFIA.

There's usually stuff to discover on Gorilla Vs. Bear's year-end list, like Dutch artists Erika de Casier and BEA1991 who came in at #2 and #5, respectively. You can check out their albums, and pursue Gorilla Vs Bear's Albums of 2019 list, below.
