#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.

#36: Ryan Adams, “1989”

We know, everybody’s talking about it, you must be tired of it already, but we couldn’t help it. We had to include three songs off Ryan Adams’ take on Taylor Swift’s 1989 on our weekly playlist. But, you know, there’s more to it, and a lot of brand new music to explore, from the calm beauty of the new Richard Hawley record to some real infectious tunes by Battles, John Grant, and The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn. Also, be sure to check out Penny Blacks’ new beautiful EP. Jason Ogden sure is one of the most interesting songwriters in Canada right now.
