This year we’re going full Aquarium Drunkard (AKA the only music year end list worth reading). Except, these are just one person’s choices (unlike Bolachas Now Playing, which is a team effort). And he’s only doing this because it’s a slow week at his real work. Meaning, “going full Aquarium Drunkard” is, really, just adopting the format: a list of 100 un-ordered records bound together in groups of 4. Plus a short tweet about each of them. There are a few Spotify playlists at the end of the post, plus Bandcamp links to those records whenever available.
Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday. And, sometimes, posted on Thursdays. Yard Act‘s debut LP “The Overload” is our album of the week!
As usual, the first playlist of the year features our favourite album released in the last weeks of 2021. This time we have the veteran singer-songwriter Michael Hurley with his new record “The Time of the Foxgloves”.
Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday. This week’s highlight: Julie Doiron‘s new album “I Thought of You”.
Three years after the stellar “You, Forever”, Sam Evian is back with a new album. Eleven psychedelic pop gems to brighten up your post-Daylight Saving Time late afternoon blues, if that’s a thing where you live.
