#253: Jerry David DeCicca, “The Unlikely Optimist…”

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

Almost a decade after the last The Black Swans release, frontman Jerry David DeCicca keeps putting out great solo albums. Which are not strictly solo, if you look at the cast of musicians enlisted here, a list that includes the legendary Augie Meyers (of the Texas Tornados and the Sir Douglas Quintet). The result is an instrumentally rich set of Americana songs that are probably your best introduction to DeCicca’s work as a songwriter.

This week, we have new tracks by Kacy & Clayton & Marlon WilliamsThe Weather StationSharon Van EttenSteady HolidayJane WeaverOhmmeSUUNS & Jerusalem In My HeartViagra BoysWoodsJeremy IveyCordovasLanghorne Slim, Family Jordan, James Ellis and the Jealous GuysThe Slim KingsElvis PerkinsKevin MorbyJulia Jacklin, Desure, Le Ren, Julie Byrne, The Orchestra of CardboardTomberlinPearl CharlesHoly Motors, and Jennifer Castle.
