There’s more Father John Misty and Decemberists in here and there’s also one of the biggest surprises of the year so far: please stand up for ms. Natalie Prass. Below is a playlist containing the 14 songs of the week, if you want to receive the weekly update please subscribe to this one.

An introduction to Bolachas Now Playing

It’s time to change. Again. The always shapeshifting entity known as Bolachas – this sort of webzine (whatever that word really means) that was once also a download blog, a mp3 blog, a carefully curated platform for unknown artists to promote their music for free, a netlabel, a promoter, some sort of booking agency – turns 9 this year.
