Beau Brady's Top 10 Albums of 2019

Dec 11, 2019

Beau Brady of Excuse Me shares his 10 favorite albums of 2019:

10. Clams Casino - Moon Trip Radio

Surprise announced at the end of October and released weeks later, Clams Casino returns to his instrumental roots with an album that would make any long time fan (this guy) extremely happy.

There's a cinematic theme in the songs on this edition of All Songs Considered, including a new track from Thom Yorke called "Daily Battles" and an instrumental version of it from trumpeter Wynton Marsalis. These two songs were created for the Edward Norton film Motherless Brooklyn.

Every Tuesday, The Spy adds new music to its rotation. Here are the adds for the week of September 3, 2019. This week's playlist includes a collaborative song from Thom Yorke and Flea, Bombay Bicycle Club's first new song in five years, a track from Sturgill Simpson's upcoming film, and so much more.

In his vast catalog of music, Radiohead's Thom Yorke has trembled like a broken man on his knees. He has screamed in tormented six-part harmony; he has manic-whispered diaries worth of existential fear. Still, he just can't shake the techno-dread. Most recently, that dread has manifested in Yorke's third solo project, ANIMA, released on June 27.

Every Tuesday, The Spy adds new music to its rotation. Here are the adds for the week of July 16, 2019. This week's playlist includes new songs by Chastity Belt, Bleached, Violent Femmes, Thom Yorke, and so many more.

This week's batch of essential new albums includes Robyn's melancholy return to the dance floor, rock-and-roll madness from Ty Segall, the otherworldly voice of NAO, singer Julia Holter's mind-blowing masterpiece Aviary, and more. Host Robin Hilton is joined by NPR Music's Ann Powers and Stephen Thompson as they run through the best full-length releases out on Oct. 26.
