#279: Will Stratton, “The Changing Wilderness”

Will Stratton’s second album for Bella Union, “The Changing Wilderness”, is our album of the week. Pastoral folk for troubled times, Stratton’s seventh LP is yet another gem to be explored by fans of fingerpicking songwriters.

#253: Jerry David DeCicca, “The Unlikely Optimist…”

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

Almost a decade after the last The Black Swans release, frontman Jerry David DeCicca keeps putting out great solo albums. Which are not strictly solo, if you look at the cast of musicians enlisted here, a list that includes the legendary Augie Meyers (of the Texas Tornados and the Sir Douglas Quintet). The result is an instrumentally rich set of Americana songs that are probably your best introduction to DeCicca’s work as a songwriter.

This week, we have new tracks by Kacy & Clayton & Marlon WilliamsThe Weather StationSharon Van EttenSteady HolidayJane WeaverOhmmeSUUNS & Jerusalem In My HeartViagra BoysWoodsJeremy IveyCordovasLanghorne Slim, Family Jordan, James Ellis and the Jealous GuysThe Slim KingsElvis PerkinsKevin MorbyJulia Jacklin, Desure, Le Ren, Julie Byrne, The Orchestra of CardboardTomberlinPearl CharlesHoly Motors, and Jennifer Castle.

#250: Lydia Loveless, “Daughter”

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

Five and a half years later, we reach the round number of 250 weeks providing you with fresh new music. That’s a lot of hours of music and a whole lot of hours of work put into this. Congratulate us. This week we bring you “Daughter”, the new record by singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless. It’s probably the most brilliant effort yet from someone we can start shamelessly call the heir to Lucinda Williams’ throne.
