Plenty of familiar faces on our 16th playlist of the year, and 64th overall. Bolachas Now Playing is getting old, but it won’t retire. Just like the Jayhawks.
Damien Jurado’s Visions of Us on the Land comes out tonight and is our album of the week! Listen to three more songs off it (we had already featured a couple of tracks in the past weeks) along with more songs by Caleb Caudle, Daniel Romano, Mexrrissey, Palehound, Julia Jacklin, Britta Phillips, Esperanza Spalding, Juliana Barwick, Sara Não Tem Nome, Jozev van Wissem, Filho da Mãe, Mr. Fingers, Bibio, and Moodymann.
Lots of Portuguese music this week, as we feature Minta & the Brook Trout’s new record, Slow. In this week’s playlist you can also find new songs by Sensible Soccers, Sequin, Jibóia, and Deolinda. On the international side of it, time to revisit Sufjan Stevens’ Chicago through an old demo that has lately surfaced, plus brand new tracks by the likes of Britta Phillips, Quilt, Mothers, Marissa Nadler, Andrew Bird, Cate le Bon, Bullion, Junior Boys, Breakbot, and Malandrómeda.
