Best Albums Of 2019 (So Far)

Jun 25, 2019

We asked our panel of public radio writers one question: What is your favorite album of 2019 so far? There were so many ways to answer: we've heard albums that feel germane to our time, that allowed us to escape, that reconfigured a beloved artist's roots or that signaled the next wave of sound. But ultimately, what we have here are the No. 1s as picked by some of the biggest ears in the country, the albums that we just can't stop listening to, even when time, algorithms and unending news cycles demand otherwise.

In the spirit of The Austin 100 and all things music at SXSW, listen to NPR Slingshot's second-ever Station Breaks, a monthly playlist spotlighting emerging artists. These acts are creating the songs that NPR Music station personalities are excited to hear.
