This week’s highlight: Mapache‘s new record, “3”
In the beginning of the month, Americana heroes The Felice Brothers quietly released “Undress”. Their new collection of songs focuses on, well, 2010s USA, and it turns out to be possibly their most cohesive album – and its fantastic harmonies make it one of the catchiest records of the year so far.
On this week’s playlist: new songs by Ryan Pollie, Olden Yolk, David Berman’s Purple Mountains, Sam Cohen, Mikaela Davis, Pearl Charles, Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation, The National, Lowland Hum, Native Harrow, William Ryan Fritch, Michael Fracasso, Tōth, Luís Severo, Mega Bog, Joseph Shabason, Aviva le Fey, Little Mazarn, Shannon Lay, Matt Kivel, and Siskiyou.
Andrew Bird’s “My Finest Work Yet” might not be exactly his best, but it’s definitely his most interesting record in ten years. It sounds familiar, it sounds like it has always been there, but it never sounds redundant. There has never been a better time to get back into his discography. What’s more: new songs by Kevin Morby, Bedouine, Olden Yolk, Josh Ritter, Craig Finn, Justin Townes Earle, Lily & Madeleine, Drugdealer, Dark Tea, Sam Outlaw, Son Volt, Richard Dawson, HRNS, Blanco Palamera, Ryan Pollie, C Duncan, Chris Forsyth, Black Midi, Low Life, and American Football.
