Seems like Nick Cave has had enough of being quiet. The standout track of CARNAGE, his new LP with long-time collaborator Warren Ellis, has to be “White Elephant”. Halfway through the menacing sounding song, the whole thing turns into a full fledged gospel hymn and we’re left wondering whether Jason Pierce is pulling the strings behind the scenes. It was then we knew it would be fairly easy to pick our album of the week.
This week we present Robert Ellis’ stellar self-titled new record.
For many, Car Seat Headrest was the “winner” of last week’s NOS Primavera Sound. The young singer-songwriter had just released his latest output, now on Matador, Teens of Denial, the album we’ve chosen to highlight this week on our playlist.
This week on Bolachas Now Playing we feature Lionlimb’s debut record Shoo. You might have heard of them as Angel Olsen’s backing band, but their record is a gem on its own. Plus: Dinosaur Jr, Destroyer, Cass McCombs, Cate Le Bon, Woods, Robert Glasper, Gang of Youths, My Morning Jacket, Andy Shauf,Phosphorescent + Jenny Lewis, Sara Watkins, Hard Working Americans, Robert Ellis, and DEAKIN.
