The world might have changed a lot since we’ve started doing this playlist. But there’s one thing that doesn’t: every time Nap Eyes releases an album it goes straight to our playlist as our top pick of the week. Go get your literate guitar pop fix. Plus: new tracks by Lola Kirke, Craig Finn, Dawes, Damien Jurado, Low Cut Connie, Roger Eno & Brian Eno, Maria McKee, Margaret Glaspy, Katie Von Schleicher, Waxahatchee, Lilly Hiatt, Say Sue Me, Chuck Prophet, Lewsberg, Mush, Egyptian Blue, We Versus the Shark, Melt Yourself Down, Hailu Mergia, Tony Allen, Noveller, and Bob Dylan.
The latest Grant-Lee Phillips album and the Jason Molina RSD 7″ (with two previously unreleased Townes Van Zandt covers) are our records of the week.
