For fifty weeks this year, we’re celebrating the music of a specific year every Saturday on WXPN. We’ll be choosing the years randomly; for the final #XPN5050, Kristen Kurtis is putting the musical spotlight on the year 2019.
It was the year of Maggie Rogers and J.S. Ondara, of Sharon Van Etten and Orville Peck. It was the year Gary Clark Jr. rocked and raged, Hozier swooned, and Tedesci Trucks Band jammed. It was the year of Lizzo. It was the year…we still have three days left in.
This week for the final edition of the #XPN5050, we take a look back at the musical highlights of the music that made 2019. Listen to a Spotify playlist of music from the year below.
