#265: Arlo Parks, “Collapsed in Sunbeams”

Feel-good pop doesn’t seem to fulfil its promise these days. But Arlo Parks‘s debut album, “Collapsed in Sunbeams”, manages to bring a little bit of sunlight-infused pop into our hearts and ears. Extra points for the poetic-feel and the whimsical but very accurate Portra 400 reference.

#250: Lydia Loveless, “Daughter”

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

Five and a half years later, we reach the round number of 250 weeks providing you with fresh new music. That’s a lot of hours of music and a whole lot of hours of work put into this. Congratulate us. This week we bring you “Daughter”, the new record by singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless. It’s probably the most brilliant effort yet from someone we can start shamelessly call the heir to Lucinda Williams’ throne.
