In a surprising contender for first new exceptional album of the year, James Yorkston teams up with Swedish folk-rock-ish outfit The Second Hand Orchestra to deliver “The Wide, Wide River”, a “krautfolk” machine that got us hooked at first listen.
Aaron Frazer is best known as the drummer (and singer) for soul outfit Durand Jones & the Indications. Like so many songwriters in the past few years, he teamed up with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and got his debut solo album, “Introducing…”, ready in no time. We’re not even halfway through January and we already have our first highlight of 2021. Feels good to be back.
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.
Plus: new tracks by Tim Heidecker, Bruce Springsteen, Chris Stapleton, Blitzen Trapper, Brandy Clark & Brandi Carlile, Bella White, The Mastersons, Fleet Foxes, This Is The Kit, Gianna Lauren, The Slim Kings, Kiwi jr, Sunflower Bean, tune-yards, Sufjan Stevens, Sarah Davachi, Hen Ogledd, Sad13, Ian Daniel Kehoe, Christian Kjellvander, Kevin Morby, Cut Worms, Tre Burt, and Grace Gillespie.
