This week on our playlist we showcase the new albums by case/lang/veirs — a collaboration between, yes, Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs — and Brandy Clark, one of our favorite country singers of the past years. But there’s more: plenty of American singer-songwriters have been releasing great songs lately, so you know what to expect from this week’s Bolachas Now Playing.
Happy release day to Andy Shauf, whose record The Party is our album of the week! Old favorites Super Furry Animals and Wolf Parade are also back with their first new songs in a while. Plus: new songs by Okkervil River, Karl Blau, Marissa Nadler, Brandy Clark, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Fruit Bats, White Denim, Speedy Ortiz, Mitski, Cullen Omori, Plaid, and Kaytranada.
The new Plastic Flowers album is on the spotlight this week, along with other fine records by David Thomas Broughton and Sturgill Simpson.
