Jaye Jayle's (aka Evan Patterson of Young Widows) last album was 2018's No Trail and Other Unholy Paths, but he also had a busy 2019, with plenty of touring and the release of the non-album single "Soline," which is one of 2019's real gems. With the end of 2019 near, we asked Evan what his favorite albums of the year were, and he sent a list that includes Inter Arma, Chelsea Wolfe, FACS, Weyes Blood, Bill Callahan, Swans, Nick Cave, Kim Gordon, and more. They're not ranked, but he did pick one favorite. Check out his full list below.
