Eight Songs You Should Have Heard This Week

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.
