Fade to Zach’s 10 Favorite Albums of 2019 (in Haiku form)

In no particular order...

The National - I Am Easy to Find

A swirling collage 
Of haunting and intricate  
Light within darkness

21 Savage - i am > than i was

This dark trap saga
Bumps with introspective depth  
On life, love, and loss   

Jenny Lewis - On the Line

Graceful songwriting
Soars with the melody of 
Shiny open wings

Vampire Weekend - Father of the Bride 

Wistful and catchy
Double entry of end times
And changing seasons 

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - Bandana

Gritty rhymes and flows
Eclectic beats and samples
A thrilling union 

Bruce Springsteen - Western Stars

Cowboy boots, ghost towns
Big wide country horizons 
Keep on ridin’ on

Bon Iver - i,i

Waves of wires and qualms 
The future sure sounds poignant 
New genre, new sparks 

Mannequin Pussy - Patience 

Blistering punk rock 
And poppy flourishes seethe 
Like a swift torrent 

Kanye West - Jesus Is King

Glory and spirit
Touches the soul and the heart
Voices and hands raise

Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell!

Sings a timeless music note 
And here come the flames
