 This year was about returning power to the artists. With the rise of DIY recording processes outside of the bedroom pop genre and the prominence of mental health, the music created in 2019 was more introspective than ever.

Oso Oso – Basking in the Glow With the third long-playing release under the moniker of Oso Oso, New York songwriter and guitarist Jade Lilitri has struck a hypnotic balance between upbeat, sunny atmospheres and nostalgia-rich, melancholic lyrics. “The View” confronts the increasingly common struggle to find meaning in a world where it’s always getting easier to let everything slip away, and “One Sick Plan” takes a more...
