#263: Buck Meek, “Two Saviors”

It’s hard to talk about Buck Meek without referring to him as “Big Thief’s Buck Meek”. But his solo work – with a little help from some of our favorite handymen of indie music such as Mat Davidson (Twain) and Adam Brisbin – is its own thing, with Meek’s characteristic voice paving the way to beautifully arranged songs. Songs that we’re definitely going to use as an argument when, come November, you’ll say, as always, that “this wasn’t a very good year for music”.

#252: Cut Worms, “Nobody Lives Here Anymore”

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

Max Clarke, aka Cut Worms, sounds a bit like if Jim James was sent back to the 60s in a time capsule to perform in folk-rock and Merseybeat outfits. His new double LP “Nobody Lives Here Anymore” has to be our most anticipated release of the year. We tried very hard not to include all of the nine (!) advance songs Jagjaguwar has slowly put out in the past five months. Now that it’s all out, its 77 minutes will take a lot of time to digest – mostly because it’s impossible to not get hooked in one or another of the nuggets hidden inside this record.
