City Sun Eater in the River of Light by Woods is our pick in this week’s playlist.
Bolachas Now Playing is back with plenty of new music after the holiday season. David Bowie would still be featured even if he was alive – his latest record, Blackstar, is undoubtedly the first highlight of 2016. Some old favorites will be releasing new records this winter/spring (Explosions in the Sky, Tortoise, Woods, Yeasayer, Basia Bulat, Eleanor Friedberger), some are just starting (Cam, Anderson Paak, Margo Price) but there’s so much more: new tracks by Villagers, Jacob Faurholt, Matthew E. White & Natalie Prass, Santigold, and Brandy Clark. Here’s the first Bolachas Now Playing of the year, the 49th since we first started.
DJ Coco. Eish ke fdp de festa! Hugo Lima/Optimus Primavera Sound
Last day of Optimus Primavera Sound 2013. Unlike last year, sunny. Sunny. Who loves the sun? Everyone.
HuffPost has just premiered this nostalgia-filled brand new video for Explosions in the Sky’s “Postcard from 1952” off their latest record Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. Their latest show in Portugal was (almost) exactly eight years ago, but they’re bound to return in (almost) exactly one month, playing in the first night of the Optimus Primavera Sound festival in Porto.
