The holidays are right around the corner, and what better gift to give than the gift of music? Fortunately, it's been a good year for that. Here are our five top picks for 2019 releases on vinyl.

Summer of 2019 will always be commemorated with Lana Del Rey's fifth studio album, which includes her (Better then the original?) cover of Sublime's 'Doin' Time.'


After a lil' hiatus, The Black Keys rocked our socks off with their 2019 return and release of the electric new album, Let's Rock. This is a good one start to finish, featuring 'Lo/Hi' and 'Let's Go.' Not to mention the cool album art, inspired by a guy getting fried on death row. Happy holidays!

Cage the Elephant's Social Cues stayed true to Cage's fuzzy 60s rock influence combined modern alt rock. It features two of our favorite songs of the year, the title track, 'Social Cues' and 'Ready to Let Go.' If you want to get this as a gift for someone, but don't know who, you can just get it for me.

4) White Reaper - You Deserve Love

The World's Best American Band has a couple great albums under their belt already, but they gained radio play and their first top-20 song in 2019, 'Might Be Right.' However, you (er... whoever the lucky recipient of this record is) will enjoy digging in a litter deeper and getting to know White Reaper on You Deserve Love.


5) Billie Elilish - When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

2019 was a pretty big year for the 17-year-old, with the release of When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? It includes 'Bad Guy,' 'Bury a Friend,' 'You Should See Me in a Crown,' 'All the Good Girls Go to Hell,' and more. She's already sold out her 2020 Pepsi Center show, so this will be the perfect gift for someone who wasn't able to get tickets.
