#247: Colter Wall, “Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs”

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

One of the greatest mysteries of contemporary western music is how on earth can a Canadian in his early 20s so easily pass for a veteran country troubadour from another time. That sounds natural for Colter Wall, and he’s here to stay. Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs is his third album in four years, and probably the easiest to get into.
