We’re pushing back our weekly playlists publication date to Friday and getting better at doing those! Be sure to follow the playlist on Spotify. Meanwhile, you can listen to playlists 5 and 6 below! Tracklists and embeds after the jump.
Another week, another Bolachas-curated playlist, with two added Natalie Prass songs – we’re really high on her selftitled debut LP – as well as brand new songs from indie darlings Torres and Courtney Barnett, two more songs from January habitués The Decemberists and Belle & Sebastian, a bunch of both upcoming (Adia Victoria) and established (José González, Jim White) singer-songwriters, refreshing new singles from Mikal Cronin and Lower Dens, a couple of songs from crossing-over R&B musicians D’Angelo and Jazmine Sullivan, as well as a chilly new tune by Chilly Gonzales. Follow this playlist if you want your weekly fix delivered every Monday.
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.
