HTRK’s Nigel Yang & Jonnine Stardish Top Tens of 2019

Right, I’ll say at the very start of this post I’ve stole these lists from elsewhere but what the hell else is the internet for? Maybe, I should say it’s a re-post which is just nicer way to put that! But I’ve waited until almost the the end of January posted them on my little blog but off course I’ve found all albums/songs on Bandcamp, soundcloud, YouTube and embedded them below plus joining the 2 lists together.

This post is adding to my collection of all things HTRK here. Which if you’ve forgotten they score my fave album of last year, linked here. If anyone else out there that are HTRK fans or whatever? That haven’t seen/heard their list already? Well, aren’t you very lucky today! They where both from record label Bookmat’s website end of last year features and here are the links to Nigel and Jonnine list’s original pages too! BTW both list were numbered but I’ve not added the numbers below. I haven’t changed the order or anything so it goes top spot is first with a going down order, OK? I’ve really enjoy listening all their picks so I do hope anyone who press plays does too? Anyway I’ll shut-up now and here’s the music!

    1. Oh well, BE is very popular to say the least and everything else here is mainly very obscure! I think, Grass And Trees by Earthen Sea is fave of their faves so if you’ve not got time for everything maybe, just have a listen to that one? 🙂


  1. So much music here, none of which I’m familiar with, other than Billie Eilish. I also like the Earthen Sea album, but am finding Klein’s “Lifetime” a bit too avant-garde for my tastes. Will check the rest of them out as time permits.

    1. Oh well, glad you enjoyed Earthen Sea too and i guess see how you go but you don’t have to listen to them all because things do get a bit avant-garde for most of these, you know? 🙂
