BlackBook never stops getting excited about new music, especially if there’s a bit of style to go along with the necessary substance. And we always consider it an honor to be asked to debut new songs and videos by the artists we love, new and old.
2019 was another good one, from January’s premiere of NYC duo Fever High’s sexy new track “Avec You,” to our December premiere of Everything But The Girl legend Ben Watt’s single/video “Balanced on a Wire.” In between we had an enigmatic new song from Sarah Jaffe, a killer remix from trip-hip icons Morcheeba, and Greg Laswell’s utterly haunting cover of Placebo’s “Without You I’m Nothing.”
Here we look back at twelve of our favorites, one from each month of the year – so your 2020 can begin on just the right…note.
