No matter your mood today, make sure you adopt a heartbreak album. Look no further. Courtney Marie Andrews can’t write a bad song. And the ones on her new collection of 10 not bad songs, “Old Flowers”, are so good that we just noticed we’ve featured one of them twice. Plus: new tracks by Fenne Lily, Native Harrow, Lori McKenna, H.C. McEntire, Skullcrusher, Taylor Swift, Lydia Loveless, Aubrie Sellers, Daniel Donato, The Nude Party, Hoops, Old 97’s, Dawes, Jarvis Cocker, Sylvan Esso, Walter Martin, Lala Lala, trayer tryon, Andy Shauf, Durand Jones & The Indications, Grace Sings Sludge, Ora Cogan, Isobel Campbell, Tom Brosseau, Colter Wall, Brent Cobb, and the Tweedy family.
The first September 2019 playlist brings you the very #bolachascore Esther Rose on the occasion of her second album, “You Made It This Far”. The New Orleans-based songwriter has just released – via Father/Daughter Records – one of our favorite country-tinged folk records of the year, and we can’t wait for you to fall in love with it (and for Rose and her band to cross over the ocean). Plus: new tracks by Vetiver, (Sandy) Alex G, Whitney, Black Belt Eagle Scout, Jay Som, Joan Shelley, Cross Record, Tom Brosseau, Red River Dialect, Patty Griffin, Simone White, Lana Del Rey, Kelsey Waldon, Ainsley Farrell, Paul Cauthen, The Devil Makes Three, Comet Gain, Have a Nice Life, Jason Lytle, Lightning Bolt, Fontaines D.C., and Pinegrove.
This week we’ll focus on Amanda Shires’ beautiful new record, My Piece of Land. Watch out for new records by John Prine and Itasca – both out now!
