Will Stratton’s second album for Bella Union, “The Changing Wilderness”, is our album of the week. Pastoral folk for troubled times, Stratton’s seventh LP is yet another gem to be explored by fans of fingerpicking songwriters.
You know Spring has arrived whenever there’s a new Damien Jurado album to marvel at. The prolific American singer-songwriter is probably the most featured artist in our playlist since we started five years ago, and he doesn’t seem like he’s slowing down any time soon. We’re not complaining. Plus: new tracks by Lavinia BlackwAll, Alasdair Roberts, Johanna Warren, Talitha Ferri, Big Thief, Andy Jenkins, Courtney Marie Andrews, Christian Lee Hutson, Langhorne Slim, Zachary Cale, Rose City Band, Car Seat Headrest, Man Man, BC Camplight, Chicano Batman, American Aquarium, Grutera, João Pais Filipe, neubauten.org, Protomartyr, Fantastic Explosion, and Diet Cig.
Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist updated every Tuesday.
Snail Mail’s debut “Lush” is our record of the week! She’s younger and has already accomplished more than you. How do you feel about that? Plus: new tracks by SOPHIE, Hilary Woods, Let’s Eat Grandma, Blonde Redhead, Protomartyr, Death Cab for Cutie, Dawes, Villagers, John Parish, Michael Nau, American Aquarium, Rayland Baxter, Andy Jenkins, Sam Evian, Levi Parham, Erin O’Dowd, Punch Brothers, and Harrison Whitford.
