How Was 2019 For You?

ELIOT LEE HAZEL

How has your 2019 been?

“It’s been a blur of madness and delight! I’ve spent most of the time touring and making clips for the songs off Titanic Rising. Lots of creative juices flowed this year. It was also a tremendous year in terms of the climate crisis, with some harrowing societal realisations. I have a lot of hope for 2020. You can sense a fever pitch, we’re past the raising awareness phase and moving into action. Denial is less an option. A lot of things happened this year that could deter hope, but I choose to hold onto some of the good things that happened — maybe it’s personally breaking through my own fears.”

Any highs and lows?

“Definitely some extreme highs coupled with extreme lows, so it goes. I’m very grateful to be given this opportunity to tour and play my music, and the high moments make it worth it. I played on TV for the first time, which felt pretty insane. The shows have been really incredible and the general reception of the album keeps me elated at times, but we’ve also had 24-hour travel days with multiple delayed flights, and then to top it all off the airline loses all of our equipment by the time we finally make it back to LA and everyone’s in a dark headspace. What goes up must go down!”

About Long Live Vinyl

Issue 34 of Long Live Vinyl is now on sale! Farewell to 2019! Our massive end-of-year special rounds up the very best of the year in vinyl. First up, we bring you the top 100 new albums of the last 12 months, selected by an expert panel of record shop owners, labels, bands, writers and festival organisers. Once you've filled your Christmas list with that lot, we've picked the top 20 reissues of 2019. You'll find interviews with some of the heroes of the year, too, including Fontaines DC, The Specials, Amyl & The Sniffers, Weyes Blood, Bill Callahan and The Murder Capital. If you're on the lookout for a new turntable, amp, speakers or headphones for Christmas, you'll want to check out our extensive Gear Of The Year awards, and after more than 10,000 of you voted, we name our second annual Record Shop Of The Year. Pick up your copy to find out who's won! In other news, former Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant sits down for a chat about his new boxset and podcast, while Beck opens up about his latest album, Hyperspace. We also reminisce with The Pop Group over their classic 1979 album Y and tell the story of the label that brought us Love, The Doors and MC5: the one and only Elektra Records. If all that's not enough, you'll find the widest range of vinyl-related news, features and reviews anywhere on the newsstand. Long Live Vinyl is THE magazine for Vinyl lovers.
