#197: Jeff Tweedy, “Warmer”

Our album of the week was released in April. Confused? Well, thank Record Store Day for that. WARMER, Jeff Tweedy’s companion album to both last year’s excellent WARM and his autobiography, was previously only released through a very limited vinyl run, but is now available on all streaming platforms and as WARM/WARMER pack. Far from being a compilation of b-sides, some of the tracks on this collection of songs are as strong as the best songs off his proper solo debut.

And, because this week is the last before we go on our typical vacation around the Festival Vodafone Paredes de Coura – more about it next week – we have packed this playlist with two hours of new music. In addition to Wilco’s frontman “new” record, we feature recent tracks from Jeremy Ivey, Jordan Moser, Will Johnson, Steve Earle, My Morning Jacket, Black Country, New Road, Thee Oh Sees, Purling Hiss, Tropical Fuck Storm, Marika Hackman, Strange Ranger, Black Belt Eagle Scout, (Sandy) Alex G, The Dead South, Red River Dialect, Sam Outlaw, Taylor Swift, The Highwomen, Aubrie Sellers, Dori Freeman, Angie McMahon, Okey Dokey, Susto, Rayland Baxter, Skinshape, Loving, Rosemary Fairweather, Let’s Eat Grandma, and Florist.

#170: Willard Grant Conspiracy, “Untethered”

Ok, we said we were going to hibernate for a few weeks. But then we decided to give it another go – there are still albums and songs to be released in the first few days of December, right? There are twenty more songs to be heard, so why wait until next year? This week we focus on the posthumously released final album by Willard Grant Conspiracy, almost two years after the passing of frontman Robert Fisher, plus new and recent tracks by Lambchop, Jennah Barry, Pistol Annies, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, Jessica Pratt, Fog Lake, Harlem, Susto, The Decemberists, Cass McCombs, Lubomyr Melnyk, Daniel Knox, Steve Gunn, Donivan Berube, Pedro the Lion, The Cactus Blossoms, Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert, and Angelo De Augustine.
