As you probably noticed already by our playlists, we’re big fans of the New Orleans country scene and its retro-y sound. One of its rising stars is singer-songwriter Esther Rose, whose third album, “How Many Times”, is out now.
Brazilian fun outfit Boogarins are this week’s featured band with two tracks off their latest record, MANUAL, but there’s more to love: 12 new songs by Ludovico Einaudi, M.I.A., David Bowie, The Felice Brothers, Punch Brothers, Kate Tempest, Aaron Lee Tasjan, The Cave Singers, Dylan LeBlanc, Floating Points, Floating Action, and Freddie Gibbs.
This week on our playlist we bring you songs from two nice new records from Americans Alex Bleeker [Real Estate’s bassist] & the Freaks and Israel Nash, while also presenting new Daptone signees The Mystery Lights. There’s also new songs by Rodrigo Amarante (which happens to be Narcos’ theme song), Tindersticks, dvsn, Floating Points, Juçara Marçal, Chris Stapleton’s duet with his wife from his record Traveller, which came out a few months ago, and a cut from Kurt Vile’s latest live Spotify session. Here you go:
