The Felice Brothers are back with “From Dreams to Dust”, another folk rock treatise from a songwriting duo that just won’t stop putting great songs every odd year or so.

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.
New tracks by Andrew Gabbard, The Slim Kings, Nick Garza’s Get Along, TK & The Holy Know-Nothings, Brent Cobb, Chris Stapleton, The Avett Brothers, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Rae Fitzgerald, North Americans, Adia Victoria, Native Harrow, Maya Hawke, Loma, Half Gringa, Samia, Ashley Ray, Deep Sea Diver, Dawes, Nap Eyes, Night Shop, Jacob Faurholt, Ulver, Kelly Lee Owens, The Budos Band, and Lalalar.
Welcome to the fifth season of Bolachas Now Playing. We’re back with a packed double playlist. We tried hard to limit it to 30 songs. Our pick from the first Friday of releases of 2019 is Angelo De Augustine’s new record Tomb, the closest thing to a Sufjan Stevens new album you’ll get this year (nah, we hope not). Plus: new songs by Nicholas Krgovich (actually by Ariana Grande, but his version is too good to not be featured), Sharon Van Etten, Hand Habits, Stella Donnelly, Adia Victoria, The Avett Brothers, Steve Earle, The Delines, Lana Del Rey, Michael Chapman, William Tyler, J. Mamana, Beirut, Juan Wauters, Sarah Louise, Jards Macalé, Nick Waterhouse, Kid Dakota, The Growlers, Half Japanese, Girlpool, Kim Lenz, Bill MacKay, Steve Gunn, Scott Hirsch, Leah Senior, Kaia Kater, and Tiny Ruins.

Dre Babinski’s second album as Steady Holiday has been out in the US for a while now, but it has only been released in Europe last Friday. We love it too much to not promote it as our album of the week, even though so many potentially great records were released last October 5. We didn’t even have enough time to listen repeatedly to most of them, so here’s another 1h30 playlist. Songs by Motel Mirrors, Colter Wall,Phosphorescent, Adia Victoria, Swearin’, Fred Thomas (with Anna Burch), Ancient Shapes, Broken Social Scene, Fucked Up (with J Mascis and Jennifer Castle), Super Doppler, Titus Andronicus, Action Bronson, supersilent, Jerusalem In My Heart, Nathan Bowles, Bedouine, Molly Burch, Gabby’s World, Julia Jacklin, Dee White, The Wild Reeds, and Night Shop.

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.
