best of the weekHere we are again, but with lighter nights, spring flowers beginning to bloom and eight songs from the past week rounded up for your listening pleasure.

From a new benefit single for the Southern Poverty Law Center, we have wonderfully spectral folk from Bonnie “Prince” Billy, and some equally wonderful psych-folk from a re-issue of a long-lost 70s classic by Philip Lewin. There is a excellent video for Conor Oberst’s muzzy new drinking song and some rousing, full-on punk rock from Whips. We also have Speedy Ortiz’s contribution to the Our First 100 Days project, a blast of classic power-pop from veteran indie royalty Robyn Hitchcock, and classic indie rock from The New Pornographers. Rounding us off is a chugging new Bleached track with some enjoyably hefty power chords.

All yours.

  1. Bonnie “Prince” Billy – Treasure Map
  2. Conor Oberst – Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out
  3. The New Pornographers – This Is The World Of The Theater
  4. Whips – Goldmine
  5. Philip Lewin – Watercolours
  6. Speedy Ortiz – In My Way
  7. Robyn Hitchcock – Mad Shelley’s Letterbox
