#298: Ada Lea, “one hand on the steering wheel…”

Ada Lea’s debut LP, ‘what we say in private’, was the soundtrack of a big chunk of my summer of 2019. Speak/sung vocals and big melodies reminiscent of recent albums by the likes of Big Thief or Katie von Schleicher. The Canadian singer-songwriter’s new album was just released and it follows up the debut perfectly.

#142: John Prine, “The Tree of Forgiveness”

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

If you really have to have an idol, and if that idol, for some unknown reason, is not called “Dolly Parton”, John Prine would be your best bet. His first album of new music since 2005’s “Fair & Square” is out now, and it could only be our album of the week. Plus: 1,5 hours of new songs by Willie Nelson (oh wait, he’s our idol too), Old Crow Medicine Show, Olivia Chaney, Grouper, Mind Over Mirrors, Janelle Monáe, Chromeo ft DRAM, Mike Skinner and The Streets, FACS, Ryley Walker, a Hawk and a Hacksaw, Buck Curran, Simone Felice, Damien Jurado, Josh Rouse, Josh T. Pearson, L.A. Salami, Laura Veirs, Erin Rae, Stephen Steinbrink, and Amber Arcades.
