#251: The Nude Party, “Midnight Manor”

Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday.

The Nude Party are 2020’s kings of cool. Which is kinda unfortunate, since in a normal world they would be everybody’s pick for the next festival season. Feel-good and groovy as it gets, “Midnight Manor” was clearly made for an older world where we’re all out partying. Let’s pretend it never changed.

#197: Jeff Tweedy, “Warmer”

Our album of the week was released in April. Confused? Well, thank Record Store Day for that. WARMER, Jeff Tweedy’s companion album to both last year’s excellent WARM and his autobiography, was previously only released through a very limited vinyl run, but is now available on all streaming platforms and as WARM/WARMER pack. Far from being a compilation of b-sides, some of the tracks on this collection of songs are as strong as the best songs off his proper solo debut.

And, because this week is the last before we go on our typical vacation around the Festival Vodafone Paredes de Coura – more about it next week – we have packed this playlist with two hours of new music. In addition to Wilco’s frontman “new” record, we feature recent tracks from Jeremy Ivey, Jordan Moser, Will Johnson, Steve Earle, My Morning Jacket, Black Country, New Road, Thee Oh Sees, Purling Hiss, Tropical Fuck Storm, Marika Hackman, Strange Ranger, Black Belt Eagle Scout, (Sandy) Alex G, The Dead South, Red River Dialect, Sam Outlaw, Taylor Swift, The Highwomen, Aubrie Sellers, Dori Freeman, Angie McMahon, Okey Dokey, Susto, Rayland Baxter, Skinshape, Loving, Rosemary Fairweather, Let’s Eat Grandma, and Florist.

#169: Jeff Tweedy, “Warm”

Everyone seems to be publishing their 2018 lists one month before the end of the year, and here we are pretending we’re surprised by that. We still have one more before we hibernate for a few weeks. Simultaneously with the release of his book, Wilco’s frontman Jeff Tweedy has just put out WARM, his first solo album of original material, and probably one of the best Wilco-related releases since 2007’s Sky Blue Sky.
