I don’t really feel like writing about this so here’s this week’s playlist. 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.
We got a bit deeper than the usual on our second installment of our weekly Spotify playlists. Panda Bear and Justin Townes Earle make it to the list again with two new songs, but it’s Dawn Richard who steals the show with two songs off her new record, Blackheart. Brand new songs from singer-songwriters whose new albums were just announced (Waxahatchee and Matthew E. White) also make the list; and please don’t miss on the magnificent treatment country singer Lee Ann Womack gave to ol’ Uncle Neil’s classic Out On The Weekend. And please give the new Siskiyou a spin – their new album Nervous just came out on the superb Constellation (GY!BE, Silver Mt Zion, Matana Roberts, Vic Chesnutt, etc etc etc – you didn’t even need me to point that out to you) and it’s both amazing and available on Spotify.
This got somewhat buried under the wall of text that was our last post, so here’s a repost of our first weekly Spotify playlist of the year.
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.
