Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday.
We should all be listening to the new collection of bangers from Jessie Ware on our favourite dance floor, but well, here we are. Start your summer right with one of the last great releases of the first half of 2020. Plus 28 other new tracks by David Bruno, Gabriel Garzón-Montano, Cut Copy, Silverbacks, The Suffers, Country Westerns, Pottery, Nana Grizol, Mountain Time, Kalen & Aslyn, Mark Fredson, Corb Lund, Luka Kuplowsky, Roy Ayers, Skinshape, Khruangbin, Nadine Shah, Fenne Lily, Native Harrow, H.C. McEntire, Jess Williamson & Hand Habits, Becca Mancari, Lou Canon, Alasdair Roberts, Bill Callahan, Our Man In The Field, Bonny Light Horseman, and Foy Vance.
Album releases are slowly decreasing as the year comes to a close, but it doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of singles being released. Treat yourself to 14 new songs (and some covers) from Basia Bulat (pictured), Benjamim, Dev Hynes & Connan Mockasin, Sea Of Bees, Adult Mom, Gianna Lauren, Natalie Prass,Frankie Lee, Jeff Buckley, JEFF The Brotherhood, Nap Eyes, Alela Diane & Ryan Francesconi, Corb Lund, and The Wainwright Sisters.
After some low-key weeks there were plenty of great new albums being released in the last couple of weeks. Joanna Newsom could be the highlight here, but she openly dislikes Spotify, so the Canadian cowboy Corb Lund takes the crown this week. Other highlights include Blitzen Trapper, Amy Speace and Beach House’s new albums (2 songs each). Listen:
