#252: Cut Worms, “Nobody Lives Here Anymore”

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

Max Clarke, aka Cut Worms, sounds a bit like if Jim James was sent back to the 60s in a time capsule to perform in folk-rock and Merseybeat outfits. His new double LP “Nobody Lives Here Anymore” has to be our most anticipated release of the year. We tried very hard not to include all of the nine (!) advance songs Jagjaguwar has slowly put out in the past five months. Now that it’s all out, its 77 minutes will take a lot of time to digest – mostly because it’s impossible to not get hooked in one or another of the nuggets hidden inside this record.

#246: Bright Eyes, “Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was”

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

While 2020 has certainly been a shitshow of a year, we could only have hoped Bright Eyes‘ first record in almost a decade would have saved it. We weren’t wrong to hope. The brilliance that is “Down In The Weeds Where The World Once Was” is here and please excuse us while we take the rest of the year off to plunge into this sturdy pool of sadness, death and divorce.

Plus: new tracks by H.C. McEntireThe ShilohsFenne LilyThe Lemon TwigsJosh RitterChuck ProphetLydia LovelessSteve Gunn / John Truscinski, Nubya Garcia, Rhodri Davies, TFS Band, Still House Plants, METZiLiKETRAiNSNaked GiantsGuided By VoicesOld 97’sThe Nude PartyHoly MotorsNo JoyKate BollingerGrace Gillespie, and Angel Olsen
