#246: Bright Eyes, “Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was”

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

While 2020 has certainly been a shitshow of a year, we could only have hoped Bright Eyes‘ first record in almost a decade would have saved it. We weren’t wrong to hope. The brilliance that is “Down In The Weeds Where The World Once Was” is here and please excuse us while we take the rest of the year off to plunge into this sturdy pool of sadness, death and divorce.

#243: Mike Polizze, “Long Lost Solace Find”

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

Purling Hiss frontman Mike Polizze has gone solo, and the result is our album of the week, “Long Lost Solace Find”. With a little help from buddy Kurt Vile and engineer Jeff Zeigler (KV, the War on Drugs, etc), he’s crafted one of the nicest feel-good folk-pop records of the season. Go get it while it’s hot.
