The new Plastic Flowers album is on the spotlight this week, along with other fine records by David Thomas Broughton and Sturgill Simpson.
City Sun Eater in the River of Light by Woods is our pick in this week’s playlist.
Bolachas Now Playing is back with plenty of new music after the holiday season. David Bowie would still be featured even if he was alive – his latest record, Blackstar, is undoubtedly the first highlight of 2016. Some old favorites will be releasing new records this winter/spring (Explosions in the Sky, Tortoise, Woods, Yeasayer, Basia Bulat, Eleanor Friedberger), some are just starting (Cam, Anderson Paak, Margo Price) but there’s so much more: new tracks by Villagers, Jacob Faurholt, Matthew E. White & Natalie Prass, Santigold, and Brandy Clark. Here’s the first Bolachas Now Playing of the year, the 49th since we first started.
