Brand new Kevin Morby single? Count us in, especially if the b-side is a beautiful Townes van Zandt cover. We also wanted an excuse to publish this picture of his concert at the Vodafone Paredes de Coura festival earlier this year.
Mavis Staples’ Livin’ on a High Note came out today and is on our spotlight this week!
Last Friday we were surprised by an unannounced new Wilco record, Star Wars. Of course that’s the highlight of this week’s playlist – check out 4 of its 11 tracks below, on Bolachas Now Playing #27, along with two new tracks off Jason Isbell’s new album, Something More than Free, and new songs by Iron & Wine and Ben Bridwell, Heather Woods Broderick, Rachel Grimes, City and Colour, and Nap Eyes.
And here’s our weekly playlist. The latest Built to Spill record is amazing, check it out!
