    March In Review:
    After a month of revisiting the classics with #MWE, I was ready to get back to more current tunes. Luckily, some really incredible music came out this month, including a few projects that I'm sure will be sticking with me for years to come. (I've included my top ten albums of Q1 2019 at the bottom of this post.)

    March kicked off with two artists that couldn't be more different: Solange and The Japanese House. The more avant-garde Knowles sister released her project When I Get Home after years of anticipation, somehow subverting expectations by delivering a potpourri of freestyle jazz, rap, and ambience that feels more similar to Frank Ocean's pastiche project Endless than a traditional R&B/pop album. It's a challenging listen, and one that I'm not sure I love so much as appreciate after a dozen tries. Wayyyy away from Houston in Buckinghamshire, The Japanese House released Good at Falling, an absolute monster of a debut. I've been lost in the album's synth textures all month, and Amber Bain's lyrics can veer from subtle to dramatic in ways that can be surprising if you pay close attention. It's especially invigorating through a car stereo, if you get the chance.

    Beyond albums, there were a number of singles that have me anticipating full projects later this year. Christian Lee Hutson's first single "Northsiders" is a delicate folk song with hyper-specific imagery and storytelling that's somehow funny and devastating at the same time. The track was produced by his friend and bandmate Phoebe Bridgers, who lends it a twilight atmosphere that reminds me of the best Elliott Smith music. On the other end of the spectrum, the artist Georgia came barreling back into the spotlight with her readymade anthem "About Work The Dancefloor". I was instantly struck by its blend of discotheque pathos, which deserves to be as ubiquitous in the club this summer as her sonic counterpart Robyn. I'd also be remiss if I didn't acknowledge Kim Petras, who finished off her RAINBOW ERA by putting all her previously released songs into a playlist that instantly reframed them into a full project, despite being released one-by-one over the last 3+ years. I don't know that I can count it as a 2019 album because so much of it is old, but it's basically 41 minutes of straight bangers.

    The crazy thing about this month is that I still feel like I'm short-changing about 4 other projects. There were so many other great albums this month, such as:
    - Strand Of Oaks' epic comeback Eraserland, which wrings magic from a collaboration with My Morning Jacket.
    - Kyle Dion's SUGA, a wildly impressive debut filled with sticky summertime R&B.
    - Sigrid's Sucker Punch, a Megatron pop album that hits all the right pleasure spots.
    - Billie Eilish's WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?, a vision of modern pop that includes tooth cleaning noises.

    Honestly, it's going to take me a while to figure out where I rate them all, as they're full of fresh sounds and songwriting that I wasn't expecting. We're only a few months into the year, and the theme seems to be surprises. I was only anticipating one of the albums that made on my top 10 list from Q1 2019, which has me really excited about the year ahead. On we go.

    I was the one who did those last year and I think I stopped after the first two quarters due to lack of participation. I obviously love the idea though!
