The 50 Best Albums of 2019 So Far

As we head into a brief summer publication break to enjoy the summer sun for a few days, it's the perfect time to take stock of the year in music so far. PopMatters returns to our normal publishing schedule on Monday, 8 July.

Music

Matthew Herbert: One Pig

The idiosyncratic Herbert completes his "One" trilogy with an album charting the life of a pig. Occasionally clinical but never gimmicky or exploitative, it's a thoughtful examination of our own consumption at a time when consumption has become something of a pivotal issue. Eccentrics rejoice!

Music

Matthew Herbert: Scale

Herbert has created music that is thoroughly fresh and consistently challenging, and, in today's culture, that feat alone is enough to earn the album the heartiest of recommendations.

Matthew Herbert: Plat du Jour

There are deep waters here, and anyone who comes expecting the same brand of approachable, quirky house music with which Herbert made his name will be disappointed and quite possibly repulsed.
