Re: EOY 2019 - Billboard (US)

This songs list is mostly bad but it's exciting to see two songs: "Rainbow" by Kacey Musgraves, even though it's a 2018 song, and "Make Art Not Friends" by Sturgill Simpson, which deserves honestly to be a top 10 song of the year.

Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers are both dropping new LPs, possibly Lucy Dacus as well to round out the three boygenius members? Either way I could not be more excited.

And either way Tame Impala's new release has me excited even as a Currents agnostic.
