I’ve lost count of the amount of times I wrote “Produced by Dan Auerbach” here when describing an album. Yola‘s “Stand For Myself” is another of those. Her debut record, “Walk Through Fire”, was gaining serious traction when the pandemic hit, robbing her of well deserved high profile shows and festival slots – but not for long. Fresh off a Newport Folk Festival slot, this might be the possible songwriter’s dream summer.
This week we bring you a couple of tracks off the new Nap Eyes record, which was just reissued on Paradise of Bachelors. There are also new songs by Destroyer, Pega Monstro, Ought, Mac DeMarco, Neil Young, Julia Holter, RATATAT, Chelsea Wolfe, Blawan and Bleachers.
