Three years after the stellar “You, Forever”, Sam Evian is back with a new album. Eleven psychedelic pop gems to brighten up your post-Daylight Saving Time late afternoon blues, if that’s a thing where you live.
I’ve lost count of the amount of times I wrote “Produced by Dan Auerbach” here when describing an album. Yola‘s “Stand For Myself” is another of those. Her debut record, “Walk Through Fire”, was gaining serious traction when the pandemic hit, robbing her of well deserved high profile shows and festival slots – but not for long. Fresh off a Newport Folk Festival slot, this might be the possible songwriter’s dream summer.
Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist updated every Tuesday.
Snail Mail’s debut “Lush” is our record of the week! She’s younger and has already accomplished more than you. How do you feel about that? Plus: new tracks by SOPHIE, Hilary Woods, Let’s Eat Grandma, Blonde Redhead, Protomartyr, Death Cab for Cutie, Dawes, Villagers, John Parish, Michael Nau, American Aquarium, Rayland Baxter, Andy Jenkins, Sam Evian, Levi Parham, Erin O’Dowd, Punch Brothers, and Harrison Whitford.
