Robert Crotty & Loren Connors
Robert Crotty With Me: Loren's Collection (1979-1987)

Around the same time Connors laid down his first primal solo guitar albums at his home in Daggett Street, New Haven, he recorded these duos with visiting local bluesman, Robert Crotty. Connors revered the elder guitarist, and with his trademark vocal moan audible beneath Crotty’s more sonorous singing, there’s a sens...view item »

Lutine
White Flowers

'White Flowers' is the debut record from Lutine, the sparsest of folk duos comprising of artists Heather Minor and Emma Morton.

Sir Richard Bishop
Road To Siam

Sun City Girls survivor Saint Richard Bishop is back in the guitar soli seat this week with this tasty new 10" of nimble Orient-inspired pickin', which has a single 11-minute track on the A side and three shorter pieces overleaf.

Francois Tusques With Barney Wilen
Le Nouveau Jazz

An apprehensive black pudding comes from Francois Tusques With Barney Wilen.

Think Cecil Taylor and Albert Ayler on Halloween. This...view item »

Charlie Ulyatt
Shifting

Charlie Ulyatt is a Nottingham-based guitarist, in abstract but expressive form here.
