My Top Ten Albums of 2019: #6 Dogrel – Fontaines D.C.

If Sleaford Mods are almost taking the piss out of their political leanings, Fontaines D.C. are wearing their beliefs on their hearts, with them witnessing their communities struggling to keep up with the modern world. This post-punk outfit are rubbing shoulders with the likes of IDLES and Shame (who both appeared on my 2018 list, IDLES were at #1 whilst Shame came in at #7). Songs like Sha Sha Sha feature repetitive rhythms that drill their way into your mind whilst Television Screen’s almost lazy vocals really get you singing along and lastly Hurricane Laughter has an almost Iggy Pop feel to it.
