Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday.
One of the greatest mysteries of contemporary western music is how on earth can a Canadian in his early 20s so easily pass for a veteran country troubadour from another time. That sounds natural for Colter Wall, and he’s here to stay. Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs is his third album in four years, and probably the easiest to get into.
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.
