#251: The Nude Party, “Midnight Manor”

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

The Nude Party are 2020’s kings of cool. Which is kinda unfortunate, since in a normal world they would be everybody’s pick for the next festival season. Feel-good and groovy as it gets, “Midnight Manor” was clearly made for an older world where we’re all out partying. Let’s pretend it never changed.

#249: Daniel Romano’s Outfit, “How Ill Thy World Is Ordered”

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

If every album Daniel Romano has released in 2020 was on Spotify, it’s very possible that you would have seen his face in this playlist at least three or four more times. “How Ill Thy World is Ordered”, an album credited to his Outfit, is Romano’s 10th release of the year (ninth? eleventh? We lost track) and probably the best of the bunch. If you want to see someone going from acoustic Dylan to Parsons to Vega to Springsteen to Richman to electric Dylan and simultaneously always sounding as unique as he is, here’s an album for you. Then check his Bandcamp for hours of excellent new music, from proggy jams with Tool’s Danny Carey to traditional country tunes. Daniel Romano is the hottest artist in contemporary rock and roll music.
