old bolachas

Widower, Full Moon

Off the radar singer-songwriters you’ve probably never heard before: this is why you visit Bolachas, right? Unfortunately, we still almost never hear anything about Portland’s Mama Bird Recording Co and their artists (Barna Howard and Saintseneca both had released pretty decent albums last year) here in Europe. Let’s hope that changes when the Old Continent sinks its ears into Widower’s debut LP, Fool Moon, a stunning collection of alt-country songs that came out just last week and you can order here. You can watch the video for “Grasp” above and download another song off the record here. You can tell by my lack of comparisons with other songwriters that Kevin Large, the man behind the Widower moniker, is really someone to look up to.



Yuni in Taxco, “Slow Charade”

Cakes and Tapes’ alumni Yuni in Taxco had just self-released their second album of the year, and yet again is up for free streaming and download on their Bandcamp page!


[mp3] Noah Gundersen, “David”

Seattleite singer-songwriter Noah Gundersen will be releasing his Family EP on August 5th. Sam Beam would probably approve this. I did. Listen and download “David” below; more info about the record on the Bandcamp link.
