We’re pretty sure you won’t run out of interesting things to keep you occupied during your forced quarantine period, but we’ll still add something to that.

#171: Angelo de Augustine, “Tomb”

Welcome to the fifth season of Bolachas Now Playing. We’re back with a packed double playlist. We tried hard to limit it to 30 songs. Our pick from the first Friday of releases of 2019 is Angelo De Augustine’s new record Tomb, the closest thing to a Sufjan Stevens new album you’ll get this year (nah, we hope not). Plus: new songs by Nicholas Krgovich (actually by Ariana Grande, but his version is too good to not be featured), Sharon Van Etten, Hand Habits, Stella Donnelly, Adia Victoria, The Avett Brothers, Steve Earle, The Delines, Lana Del Rey, Michael Chapman, William Tyler, J. Mamana, Beirut, Juan Wauters, Sarah Louise, Jards Macalé, Nick Waterhouse, Kid Dakota, The Growlers, Half Japanese, Girlpool, Kim Lenz, Bill MacKay, Steve Gunn, Scott Hirsch, Leah Senior, Kaia Kater, and Tiny Ruins.

#167: State Champion, “Send Flowers”

As we approach 2018’s twilight and the first few publications start posting their best of the year lists, we decide to keep focusing on brand new music for a few more weeks. This week, we highlight State Champion’s new LP, ‘Send Flowers’. We’ll let the Silver Jews’ David Berman (we miss you, come back) make the introductions: “If Bob Dylan was funny, if Tom Waits was relevant, Ryan might not be peerless at what he does best, which is writing large gregarious circles around his pitiful colleagues in the field. He’s the best lyricist who’s not a rapper going.”

Plus: new tracks by Superchunk, Richard Dawson & Rhodri Davies’ Hen Ogledd, Action Bronson, Altın Gün, Jacco Gardner, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Girlpool, Mercury Rev with Margo PriceCarson McHone, Craig Brown Band, Rhett MillerRobert Ellis, Raoul Vignal, Eiko Ishibashi, Liela Moss, Nadine Khouri, Pearls Before Swine, and Jozef Van Wissem.
