#49: David Bowie, “Blackstar”

Bolachas Now Playing is back with plenty of new music after the holiday season. David Bowie would still be featured even if he was alive – his latest record, Blackstar, is undoubtedly the first highlight of 2016. Some old favorites will be releasing new records this winter/spring (Explosions in the Sky, Tortoise, Woods, Yeasayer, Basia Bulat, Eleanor Friedberger), some are just starting (Cam, Anderson Paak, Margo Price) but there’s so much more: new tracks by Villagers, Jacob Faurholt, Matthew E. White & Natalie Prass, Santigold, and Brandy Clark. Here’s the first Bolachas Now Playing of the year, the 49th since we first started.
