#250: Lydia Loveless, “Daughter”

Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday. 

Five and a half years later, we reach the round number of 250 weeks providing you with fresh new music. That’s a lot of hours of music and a whole lot of hours of work put into this. Congratulate us. This week we bring you “Daughter”, the new record by singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless. It’s probably the most brilliant effort yet from someone we can start shamelessly call the heir to Lucinda Williams’ throne.

#247: Colter Wall, “Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs”

Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday.

One of the greatest mysteries of contemporary western music is how on earth can a Canadian in his early 20s so easily pass for a veteran country troubadour from another time. That sounds natural for Colter Wall, and he’s here to stay. Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs is his third album in four years, and probably the easiest to get into.
