#249: Daniel Romano’s Outfit, “How Ill Thy World Is Ordered”

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

If every album Daniel Romano has released in 2020 was on Spotify, it’s very possible that you would have seen his face in this playlist at least three or four more times. “How Ill Thy World is Ordered”, an album credited to his Outfit, is Romano’s 10th release of the year (ninth? eleventh? We lost track) and probably the best of the bunch. If you want to see someone going from acoustic Dylan to Parsons to Vega to Springsteen to Richman to electric Dylan and simultaneously always sounding as unique as he is, here’s an album for you. Then check his Bandcamp for hours of excellent new music, from proggy jams with Tool’s Danny Carey to traditional country tunes. Daniel Romano is the hottest artist in contemporary rock and roll music.

#245: Arlo McKinley, “Die Midwestern”

#169: Jeff Tweedy, “Warm”

Everyone seems to be publishing their 2018 lists one month before the end of the year, and here we are pretending we’re surprised by that. We still have one more before we hibernate for a few weeks. Simultaneously with the release of his book, Wilco’s frontman Jeff Tweedy has just put out WARM, his first solo album of original material, and probably one of the best Wilco-related releases since 2007’s Sky Blue Sky.

Plus: new tracks from Michael Chapmanthe Mountain GoatsRyan BinghamDaniel RomanoFoxwarrenThe Green Apple SeaHollow HandDBUKPavo PavoBlake MillsSharon Van EttenJessica MossThese New PuritansГШ / Glintshake, Harlem, and Conor Oberst.
