“Boots No. 2: The Lost Songs” is a three volume collection of lost unreleased tracks straight from the Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings vault. The third and final part was just released last Friday and it’s in our spotlight for week 45.
Every week we try to focus on brand new music, if possible by newcomers that might or might not be semi-stars tomorrow. But, every now and then, we eventually cave in and cannot resist the urge to celebrate some of our favourite records’ anniversary editions. Songs: Ohia’s ‘The Lioness’ got its deluxe treatment through ‘Love & Work’, an extremely limited 2xLP boxset now sold out; in it, eleven outtakes from the same sessions that brought us one of the most heartbreaking albums of the last twenty years see the light of day for the first time.
Similarly, on its 20th anniversary, Calexico’s masterpiece ‘The Black Light’ got the same treatment and if anyone wants to donate the record our way, we’ll welcome it with open arms. Plus: new tracks from Angelo De Augustine, Shannon Lay, Josephine Foster, Grandaddy, Jens Lekman, Daniel Romano, Parker Gispert, Half Japanese, Piroshka, Nicole Atkins and Mark Lanegan, Gwenifer Raymond, Ryley Walker, Snapped Ankles, J Balvin, Ariana Grande, Little Dragon, and Foxwarren.
Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist updated every Tuesday.
Kamasi Washington’s new double album “Heaven and Earth” is our highlight of the week and it has enough music to keep you entertained for hours. But, just in case you don’t feel that’s enough for you, there’s more than one hour of new music on our playlist for you to sample: The Wave Pictures, Mikaela Davis, Altın Gün, Dos Santos, Chinaskee & Os Camponeses, Alexander Hacke + David Eugene Edwards, Gwenifer Raymond, St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Dilly Dally, Wild Pink, Mitski, Super Doppler, The Devil Makes Three, Lori McKenna, The Jayhawks, The Tallest Man On Earth, and The Milk Carton Kids.
