Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday. Or Thursday. Doesn’t matter. This week’s highlight: Emma Ruth Rundle.
The Felice Brothers are back with “From Dreams to Dust”, another folk rock treatise from a songwriting duo that just won’t stop putting great songs every odd year or so.
Steve Gunn’s sixth album, ‘Other You’ is a perfect end of summer album. It’s also our album of the week. Our 33th playlist of the year also features songs from new albums by Alex Rex, Aidan O’Rourke, Pile, Wednesday, Tré Burt, Summer Dean, and Matt Paxton.
If you haven’t had your weekly crying session yet, Christian Lee Hutson‘s debut record, Beginners, has got you covered. Even if the quarantine hasn’t gotten to you yet, prepare to get drenched in beautiful nostalgia (the good kind). But there’s more: new tracks by Zachary Cale, Skullcrusher, Leah Senior, Katy Kirby, Nicole Atkins, Courtney Marie Andrews, The Deer, Bright Eyes, Jaime Wyatt, Ray LaMontagne, Pax (feat. Kate Bollinger), Josephine Foster, Mary Lattimore, Orville Peck, Shirley Collins, Lawrence Rothman and Marissa Nadler, Wilder Maker and Gabriel Birnbaum, Hailu Mergia, Nubya Garcia, Natalia Lafourcade, Cut Worms, Logan Ledger, Night Shop, Waltzer, and Psychic Markers.
