This week in Bolachas Now Playing, while we write our Vodafone Paredes de Coura roundup, we present the new great Zachary Cale record, out now on No Quarter. There are also new songs by Destroyer, Panda Bear, Kevin Morby, Low, Carly Rae Jepsen, James Elkington & Nathan Salsburg, Lindi Ortega, Rayland Baxter, and Roosevelt, along with a Glen Hansard cover of an old Songs: Ohia song, off his tribute EP to Jason Molina. Playlist and tracklist below.
We got a bit deeper than the usual on our second installment of our weekly Spotify playlists. Panda Bear and Justin Townes Earle make it to the list again with two new songs, but it’s Dawn Richard who steals the show with two songs off her new record, Blackheart. Brand new songs from singer-songwriters whose new albums were just announced (Waxahatchee and Matthew E. White) also make the list; and please don’t miss on the magnificent treatment country singer Lee Ann Womack gave to ol’ Uncle Neil’s classic Out On The Weekend. And please give the new Siskiyou a spin – their new album Nervous just came out on the superb Constellation (GY!BE, Silver Mt Zion, Matana Roberts, Vic Chesnutt, etc etc etc – you didn’t even need me to point that out to you) and it’s both amazing and available on Spotify.
This got somewhat buried under the wall of text that was our last post, so here’s a repost of our first weekly Spotify playlist of the year.
It’s time to change. Again. The always shapeshifting entity known as Bolachas – this sort of webzine (whatever that word really means) that was once also a download blog, a mp3 blog, a carefully curated platform for unknown artists to promote their music for free, a netlabel, a promoter, some sort of booking agency – turns 9 this year.
