The Big Eyes Family Players & Friends
Folk Songs II

Lovely to see a brand new Big Eyes Family Players album and this time it's a stunner. Whilst flipping through this morning's Guardian (alfresco with coffee and croissant, natch - actually I was in Tesco getting a Mars bar), I was delighted to see a glowing review of this album. It's one of the...view item »

Tom Settle & Friends
Old Wakes

Tom Settle (and indeed his Friends, comprising the likes of Jon Collin, Nick Mitchell and many more) lands a mighty double LP on the Golden Lab label. Old Wakes is a hell of a psych-folk trip, and if two LPs worth wasn’t enough for you, the first 100 copies come w...view item »

Reggae Girl

Friend Crush

This is a new 'Friends' not 'Friends' the 80's indie pop band whose 'You'll Never See That Summertime Again' is a surefire classic! But as we all know there aren't enough names to go round these days so there is more recycling than ever. Thankfully they impress with their music which to these ears hits the perfect place somewhere between Wa...view item »

Sidi Toure & Friends
Sahel Folk

As everyone else was picking away at the review pile today I've been casting suspicious glances over, trying to spy if anyone had designs on this CD which I'd assumed must have something to do with Malian genius Ali Farka Toure but it appears it was all for nothing as there doesn't seem to be any relation whatsoever as far as I can tell.. Apart ...view item »
