Everyone seems to be publishing their 2018 lists one month before the end of the year, and here we are pretending we’re surprised by that. We still have one more before we hibernate for a few weeks. Simultaneously with the release of his book, Wilco’s frontman Jeff Tweedy has just put out WARM, his first solo album of original material, and probably one of the best Wilco-related releases since 2007’s Sky Blue Sky.

We’re back for the high season and this week’s playlist is a double playlist – that means we couldn’t put together a 14-16 song playlist like we do every week or two weeks, but we did a 2h+ playlist with 30 of our favorite tunes from the past weeks, starting with the surprisingly motorik new Lambchop 18min tune and visiting new albums by Angel Olsen (pictured above), Big Thief, Kelsey Waldon, Carl Broemel, BJ Barham, or Cass McCombs. Plenty of our favorite singer-songwriters are featured here, so if that’s what you’re looking for, this is your lucky day.
