#255: Christian Kjellvander, “About Love and Loving Again”

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

As the year draws to a close and the days become darker, so does our playlist. Or maybe it’s just the moody influence of our album of the week, Christian Kjellvander‘s About Love and Loving Again. Namedropping is cheating, but the veteran – although not that well-known outside of Scandinavia – Swedish singer-songwriter might be up your alley if you’re into some not so strange mix between Nick Cave and Jason Molina with a post-rocky Americana vibe.

#243: Mike Polizze, “Long Lost Solace Find”

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

Purling Hiss frontman Mike Polizze has gone solo, and the result is our album of the week, “Long Lost Solace Find”. With a little help from buddy Kurt Vile and engineer Jeff Zeigler (KV, the War on Drugs, etc), he’s crafted one of the nicest feel-good folk-pop records of the season. Go get it while it’s hot.
