Madeline Kenney
Perfect Shapes

Perfect Pitchfork-ready indie dreaming here from Madeline Kenney who has had her latest produced by Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak.

Great Lake Swimmers
The Waves, The Wake

2018 is the year in which Great Lake Swimmers will get to their fifteenth birthday, and what better way to celebrate than with a new album? The group forbade the use of any acoustic guitar on The Waves, The Wake...view item »

Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan is Bob Dylan’s first ever album, released way back in 1962 when no-one knew who this cat was (imagine that?!?). The tracklisting is mostly made up of traditional folk songs, with just two originals, meaning that you can really hear Dylan emerging from the folk tradition that made him. Vi...view item »

Stella Donnelly
Thrush Metal

Horribly appearing to have a mouthful of garden worms on the cover of this debut release, this Australian singer songwriter blends lovely sweet melodies with bold instinctive lyrics often aimed at men being arseholes. But like Liz Phair on Exit in Guyville the songs are both gorgeous and unique. Donnelly's voice has a lovely Aus...view item »

Kathryn Joseph
From When I Wake The Want Is

Kathryn Joseph's debut Bones You Have Thrown Me and Blood I've Spilled was a bit of a sad corker winning all kinds of Scottish awards. This is her second record and first for Mogwai's Rock Action imprint. Expect windswept bleak confessionals with a warm heart and quivering delivery that soothe rath...view item »

Giant Sand
Returns To Valley Of Rain

Giant Sand’s debut album,Valley Of Rain was originally released in 1985, although it was recorded some two years earlier. The band had started to play the songs on tour again, which made them think re-recording the album would be a good idea. They got the original line-up back together, augmented by two newer members and s...view item »

The Other Years
The Other Years

Kentucky duo The Other Years consists of Anna Krippenstapel (Joan Shelley, Freakwater) on fiddle and Heather Summers on guitar and banjo, with both singing. Their self-titled debut offers a charming and haunting suite of original songs alongside Michael Hurley’s ‘Wil...view item »

Silver Jews
American Water

Is American Water different from UK water?  Find out by buying the 20 year re-issue of this classic album by Silver Jews. Hear David Berman's lyrical poise set to a half speed master for extra good sound. Wallow in the gentle alt rock of tracks like 'Honk If You're Horny' and 'Sent in the Clouds'. Where is he by the way? We...view item »

Daniel Bachman
The Morning Star

Three Lobed Recordings (Hiss Golden Messenger, Six Organs Of Admittance) release a new LP from the highly impressive Daniel Bachman. The Morning Star is an evocative mix of psychedelic organ drones, American folk/blues guitar and found sounds. As the low rumbles slowly ...view item »

Mountain Man
Magic Ship

In this, the age of instant content, an eight year gap between album can prove utterly deadly. Fortunately for us Mountain Man were able to survive such a gulf to bring us Magic Ship. As on their debut, this is an album which celebrates not just the voice, but voices. The genius of A...view item »

Mac DeMarco
Salad Days Demos

"Salad days are gone" sang Mac DeMarco on his beloved and commercially adored record Salad Days. In fact they are not, because he's now putting out his Salad Days Demos, collection original iterations of songs praised for their sparkly, rich guitar tones, breezy melodies and reassuringly chill themes. AM rock turned s...view item »

Mac DeMarco
2 Demos

Yes, 2 Demos. Not 2 Demos in the sense that there are only 2 Demos to listen to, but 2 Demos in the sense that the record provides demos for the Mac DeMarco release that was called 2. And hence: 2 Demos. Breezy-boy soft rocker Mac serves up the heyday v...view item »

Elephant Micah
Where In Our Woods

Southern Indiana singer-songwriter Elephant Micah aka Joseph O’Connell releases his 15th album on LP and CD via Western Vinyl. It’s a typically assured effort from the Americana veteran, utilising minimal instrumentation and O’Connell’s smoothly engaging voice to deliver a compelling form of countrified m...view item »

Phosphorescent
Live At The Music Hall

Taking inspiration from Bob Dylan’s Hard Rain, Matthew Houck decided for the live Phosphorescent album, rather than churn out a "greatest hits live" collection that he would show the songs in a new light, demonstrating how his songs have an amorphous quality,and how they have been able to develop ...view item »

Sun Kil Moon
Ghosts Of The Great Highway

Out of print for far too long, Ghosts of the Great Highway is a timely reminder of the power and emotion Mark Kozelek's music once had. This was his first 'group' record post Red House Painters and is seen as one of his best. With a band featuring Anthony Koutsos (Red House Painters), Tim Moon...view item »


Paradise: The Sound Of Ivor Raymonde

Not many people are in the position to release records by their dad but head Bella Union honcho Simon Raymonde had a most unusual childhood. From seeing Scott Walker in his back garden to watching dad on 'Hancock's Half Hour' the boy didn't realise at the time the range and influence of his dad. But now he does and here is a lov...view item »

Tomberlin
At Weddings

Sarah Beth Tomberlin is the daughter of a pastor, and attended a Christian school before dropping out. Through the plaintive folk of At Weddings, she searches for an identity distinct from her faith. At the same time the album is inspired by Christian music, creating a profound tension at her music's heart....view item »

Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop
Love Letter For Fire

Love Letter For Fire by Sam Beam and Jesca Hoop is an eclectic collection of unique folk and pop. Beam brings the wit and melancholic guitar of his Iron & Wine project, whilst Hoop contributes her experimental songwriting. The male-female harmonies are beautiful and an all-star band, includi...view item »

Mark Lanegan
Scraps At Midnight

It's been around 18 years since my work colleague sent me off to purchase this CD for him. I picked it up from the local record store, and as I wasn't seeing him for a few days, I took it home and gave it a play. As soon as I heard those huge chords hit at the start of Hospital Roll Call, my life was changed forever. Lanegan's vocal refrain of '...view item »

Mark Lanegan
I'll Take Care of You

This is Mark's fourth solo record and he's as consistent as it gets, without growing tiresome or predictable. All of the songs are covers but sound like a natural extension of his own writing from the three previous records. I'll Take Care of You came out roughly a year after Scraps at Midnight. This is incredibly prolific compared to his normal...view item »

Low
The Invisible Way

There is no such thing as a bad Low album, just good, very good and mediocre. Their last effort ‘C’mon‘ had a few killer songs but also a fair few forgettable ones. It seems since the wild experimentation of the very good ‘Drums and Guns’ they have retreated into a safe Low-shaped ho...view item »

Jesca Hoop
Memories Are Now

Fresh from an Iron & Wine collab and stepping out for a debut album on Subpop, Jesca Hoop’s idiosyncratic brand of singer-songwriterism befits the leftfield turn the label has taken recently. Calling to mind at once the torch-songs of Angel Olsen and the low-key experimental turns of ...view item »

Vashti Bunyan
Just Another Diamond Day

Just Another Diamond Day by Vashti Bunyan, released in 1970, is notable for being a gentle folk classic, but also for being her only album until 2005’s Lookaftering. The album tells the tell of the time she left civilisation to join Donovan’s community of creative hippy types in the Hebrides. It was ...view item »

Jose Gonzalez
In Our Nature

Now that sensitive plucker Jose Gonzalez with his new album 'In Our Nature'. Its pretty and distinctive sounding from the the tasty Swede with vocals and guitar dancing together with evocative beauty. He's got a great sense of rhythm that comes through his playing and vocal delivery that sets him apart from his many singer songwriter contemporaries...view item »

Death Vessel
Island Intervals

Sub Pop, eh. You used to know what to expect from these guys, not so much any more. I'll be honest with you, I was hoping this would be a rock album. This Death Vessels album is full of wistful sweeping post-rocky pop with breathy girl vocals and a boy who sings like Jonsi from Sigur Ros...view item »

Me and My Kites
Like A Dream Back Then

Hippies. Your enjoyment of this record will depend quite a lot on your tolerance for hippies. Looking at the sleeve I thought it was some kind of ‘60s reissue but no, this quartet of skinny-dipping, flower-wreathing Swedes actually recorded this album just last year. The back cover even has an old-style photo collage of them. “It&rsq...view item »

Me and My Kites
Is it Real or is it Made?

Second album from Me and My Kites, a flighty collection of songs that breeze past the listener so laden with summer that you could catch hayfever. Is It Real Or Is It Made? was recorded in Norway, and there is, from time to time, an audibly Scandinavian touch to the vocals. LP released by Porcelain Records....view item »

Mikaela Davis
Delivery

After self-releasing for a few years, New York harpist/pianist/singer/songwriter/general talent Mikaela Davis has been snapped up by Rounder Records. Delivery, her first LP for the esteemed Massachusetts imprint, is a collection that balances influences from AM rock, 80s pop and a little smidgen of...view item »

Nick Drake
Pink Moon

Pretty much one of the most beautiful albums ever made. Just Nick, his ever fluid guitar playing, husky voice and on one track, a slither of piano. Listen to it late at night, on the headphones and admire the wonderful natural way the album was recorded. The songs are exquisite, odd at times, soothing at others. To me, the best Nick Drake album ...view item »

Adrianne Lenker
Abysskiss

A collection of new and unforgotten songs from Big Thief's Adrianne Lenker. The songs on Abysskiss are much more intimate than those Lenker plays with her band, giving us a more complete vision of her abilities as a songwriter. The guitar playing is plaintive and tender, and ...view item »


The Self Preservation Society

Throwback artisans ECC Records have spent three years curating this compilation. They’ve taken standards from The Best Era For Music - ‘Sunshine Of Your Love’, ‘White Rabbit’, ‘Kashmir’ and so forth - and got a load of young pretenders to ‘update them’, so to speak. The resul...view item »

Fotheringay
Fotheringay

Fotheringay were the band that Sandy Denny formed with husband, Trevor Lucas following her stint with folk-rock trailblazers Fairport Convention. The band, for their 1970 eponymous debut, featured Jerry Donahue on guitar. The album features 4 Sandy Denny-penned ...view item »

Bert Jansch
L.A. Turnaround

As a glance at the album title might lead you to guess, L.A. Turnaround was one of the albums that grew out of the time that Scottish folk troubadour Bert Jansch spent in America, adding a certain twist to Jansch’s formerly rather traditional sound. This reissue presents the original 1974 album al...view item »

Odetta Hartman
Old Rockhounds Never Die

Odetta Hartman’s sound is an odd mish-mash of stuff. It’s rooted in post-blues styles like rockabilly, 50s r ‘n’ b, country-rock and soul, but there’s also influences cropping up on Old Rockhounds Never Die from genres as diverse as psychtronica and future-boogie. It makes the fifteen track...view item »

Richard Reed Parry
Quiet River of Dust Vol 1

While Richard Reed Parry has previously explored neoclassical textures, Quiet River of Dust Vol 1 sees him move into exquisite songcraft matching Beach Boys harmonies with electronic pulses and songs culled from both the British and Japanese folk tradition. He's also a member of twenty plus-headed stadium rock beast ...view item »

Cursive
Vitriola

Emo punks Cursive have passed the time since their inception writing about the difficulties of settling down and keeping the love you've found. Tim Kasher has effectively made it his life's work to expose, via shouting, the stresses of domestic living, and has also made some great, weird concept albums about relat...view item »

Emma Ruth Rundle
On Dark Horses

Oh I do love an Emma Ruth Rundle mystery. This week's instalment sees our intrepid sleuth come out of a personal nadir by moving home, getting a new friend and making a new album with other friends. This is heart on sleeve stuff, uncomfortable realties put to music in dark duets that recall Johnny and June.  ...view item »

Mount Eerie
A Crow Looked At Me

Here is something very special indeed. A new Mount Eerie album is always something to be cherished but this one deals with the grief and loss suffered by Phil Elverum following the tragic passing of his wife. To put this sense of loss into his art ....well I just hope in some way it was cathartic for him. The results are al...view item »

Mount Eerie
Now Only

The creative process for Mount Eerie's Now Only took place just after the release of the lavishly praised A Crow Looked At Me (winner of our own Album of the Year 2017, of course). Here, Phil Elverum continues his candidly lyrical and artistic exploration of the loss of his wife Geneviève. The record fol...view item »

Owl John
Owl John

Owl John is the alias of Scott Hutchison, the songwriter, vocalist and all-round principle guy for Scottish indie rock band Frightened Rabbit. On his first solo record, he enlisted help from bandmate Andy Monaghan and friend Simon Liddel (Olympic Swimmers) in the production department, splitting his time between the Isle of Mull and the Sta...view item »

Nick Drake
Bryter Layter

Bryter Layter should obviously be in your record collection, and luckily you don’t have to spend £1,000,000 on a crackly old dog of a copy anymore. Island have faithfully remastered and reissued this beautiful thing from the (almost) original master tapes, and packaged it so it’s just like how your Dad would have bough...view item »

MayMay
Mountains Hills Plateaus and Plains

So nice, isn’t it, this music and living stuff? According to MayMay, the answer to that rhetorical question is a resounding yes: it’s lovely, everything’s beautiful where they are, and when you’re cold you can just be inside with a jumper on. Laurel Simmons’ ambient pop circles around a mix of twanging guitar, Frahm...view item »

Micah P. Hinson
Micha P. Hinson & The Gospel Of Progress

We keep getting asked about this Micah P Hinson CD. Finally we have it. It sounds really lovely. The singing sounds a bit like Smog but more cheerful. Its nice acoustic stuff that could get into the alt country bracket. The guy's voice is great - the music is minimal acoustic guitar and understated backing. I'm fishing about for t...view item »

Matt Elliott
Drinking Songs

Matt Elliott likes a drink. I've been informed of this by Leeds indie funsters Hood who are old mates of his & I've heard a couple of really amusing stories I can tell yer. He likes a drop of the demon booze so much in fact he's entitled his latest beautifully packaged CD 'Drinking Songs'. Think this is one for all you mournfu...view item »

Delphine Dora & Sophie Cooper
Divine Ekstasys

Sophie Cooper continues her high-busyness, high-quality streak with a further collaboration with improvising French singer and pianist Delphine Dora, developed in 2016. Divine Ekstasys...view item »

Cult Party
And Then There Was This Sound

Sad hits for all the family (lest there are happy members of it), it's the brand new record by not-at-all-super stars Cult Party! This wonderful band may have been a solitary, self-preserving bedroom band once upon a time, but on And Then There Was This Sound songwriter Leo Robinson opens up his sounds wi...view item »

Robbie Basho
Visions Of The Country

Out of print for 35 years until Gnome Life decided to resurrect it, here’s the late, great Robbie Basho’s 1978 album ‘Visions of the Country’ making a welcome return to vinyl. For those who don’t know, Basho was a master of the folk/raga guitar pick...view item »

Andrew Combs
5 Covers & A Song

This new EP from Nashville singer-songwriter Andrew Combs does what it says on the tin. 5 Covers - of tracks by The Strokes...view item »

Yawning Chasm
Songs from Blue House

Yawning Chasm claim that they recorded the bulk of new cassette Songs From Blue House in a shed during a storm. When you listen to this thing you start to believe them. The songs here are folk, more or less, but with the quiet charm that characterises the best bedroom indie. The group frequently back up their acoustic-a...view item »

The Men They Couldn't Hang
Cock-A-Hoop

The Men They Couldn't Hang were actually named by Shane MacGowan and although their career was somewhat more under the radar than the Pogues there is a similarity in style as the band blitz through ballads, sea shanties, rock, roll and everything in between. This is their 10th album in an off and on 35 year career and shows the ...view item »

Laura Veirs
Carbon Glacier

Oh I loved this album when I was a much younger man than I am now. 2004 in fact. I'm sure it saw me through some bleak winter or other. This was Laura Veirs breakout record and was the point where her lush and swoon-some style of icy songs really took hold. You can literally smell the Pacific North West on this collection. First...view item »

Eric Bachmann
No Recover

Former Archers Of Loaf/Crooked Fingers mastermind Eric Bachmann drops the third LP under his given name. No Recover isn’t a title that screams positivity, and despite the many gentle acoustic treatments and ringing vocal harmonies that crop up here the overall feeling of the album...view item »

Lambchop
What Another Man Spills

20th anniversary vinyl edition of the album that preceded their all time classic 'Nixon'. 'What Another Man Spills' consists mainly of Kurt Wagner originals but with a handful of covers most notably a couple by FM Cornog of East River Pipe. Now two decades on we get a remastered re-press with liner notes by Mr Wagner himself.&nb...view item »

Waxahatchee
Great Thunder

Katie Crutchfield returns with a mini album of recordings she started whilst making her previous albums Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp. These were more experimental jams recorded with a collective called Great Thunder that is no longer active. Fascinated by the material Crutchfield took it into the studio and reworked it resulting in a strippe...view item »

Jack Rose
Luck In The Valley

It's obviously a more than a little heartbreaking to think of Jack Rose's death coming just before his debut for a bigger label (who've gone the extra mile with a gorgeous sleeve here, as it goes), one which sounds to me like a conscious summation of what he's done so far with a view perhaps to clearing the way before pushing on to the next stage o...view item »

Glenn Jones
The Giant Who Ate Himself And Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar

With a title I could well imagine existing as a cautionary yet inspiring tale for young children, possibly animated by Studio Ghibli (disclaimer: before we're sued, it wasn't) The Giant Who Ate Himself - And Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar is a beautifully crafted recording by Glenn Jones. It's something to...view item »

Brigid Mae Power
The Two Worlds

Irish artist Birgid Mae Power follows up her 2016 self-titled LP with The Two Worlds. Her expressive voice, gently warbling with more than a little Americana, could as well be likened to Grace Slick as to Elizabeth Fraser, although neither capture her entirely. On the excellent lead sin...view item »

Bob Moses
Days Gone By

There is no such person as Bob Moses: the name instead represents the pairing of Jimmy Vallance and Tom Howie. Days Gone By is their first full-length record, and it makes a strong start. Mixing full-on club-grade house / techno electronic rhythms with male pop vocals, the stuff sounds ...view item »

Damien Jurado
Ghost of David

The 2000 album from Damien Jurado is back back back in the form of vinyl and cassette reissues on Sub Pop. Ghost Of David is Jurado’s third full-length, and it finds the man shedding a lot of the indie folky textures of the previous album in favour of some spiky indie guitars. Just as effective at...view item »

Red House Painters
Old Ramon

The Red House Painters recorded their sixth and final album, Old Ramon, in the late nineties, although it took several years for it to be released due to label wranglings. Its consequent ‘legendary lost album’ status turned out to be fairly warranted, as this is one of Mark Kozelek's stronge...view item »

Ned Collette
Old Chestnut

Folksy quirkster Ned Collette has been releasing secret idiosyncratic gems for years and years. He's back with another record and it might just be his best, making true on the ominous delights of his past craft. Old Chestnut fills out Collette's skeleton sound with piano from the Necks' Chris Abraham...view item »

Phosphorescent
C’est La Vie

The ‘Song For Zula’ singer (you’ll know it when you hear it) comes back with his first LP in a half-decade. Now that Justin Vernon is fully lost in the Kid A sauce, Matthew Houck’s guise positions him well to assume the mantle as the king of folkish indie. Judging by positive stu...view item »

Michael Nau
Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread

The Mighty Thread is not a really bad conversation on a message board that deviates into people agreeing to disagree, but rather the bonus name for Michael Nau, who made a bright, folksy record in Some Twist. He's back with this knottily poetic follow-up that embraces ambiguity and uncert...view item »

Jeff Buckley
Mystery White Boy

Live album from the legendary Jeff Buckley. There are all recordings made between 1995 and 1996 while Buckley was touring his seminal studio album, Grace. Mystery White Boy was compiled by Mary Guibert, Buckley's mother, and first released in 2000. ...view item »

Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear
The Radio Winners

A mother-and-son duo here, which isn’t something you see every day. Mama Bear - the mum of the duo, if that wasn’t obvious enough - strums a nice guitar while her handsome son Madisen Ward intones in a manner similar to Ray LaMontagne and Iron & Wine. New EP ...view item »

Tom Waits
Real Gone

Tom Waits, as usual, has produced another classic. It should be noted, however, that "Real Gone" is a really gritty, avant-garde effort. The sonic texture of the album is akin to some of the tunes on "Bone Machine" with a tinge of the sweaty grit of the more raucous parts of "Mule Variations" (e.g., the texture found on the rough and funky "Fili...view item »

Richard Youngs
Arrow

Troubadour, jester, joker, prankster. These are all words that have probably been used to describe the gleefully playful Richard Youngs. A rare voice in experimental music that is simultaneously very good and also entirely up for taking the piss. Arrow was recorded between Glasg...view item »

Mary Lou Lord
Got No Shadow

Mary Lou Lord gave the world her debut LP Got No Shadow in 1998, issued via a since defunct sub-label of Sony. Two decades later this remarkable blend of indie-rock and folk gets a wider, remastered release on Fire. A collection of a baker's dozen of songs drawn from sets that Mary Lou performed for weary commuters pass...view item »

Anna von Hausswolff
Ceremony

As someone once said: “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture—it’s really a stupid thing to want to do.” Sure, I can say 'Ceremony' is powerful, incendiary, deep, dark, creepy, atmospheric, panoramic, epic...and indeed all these adjectives fit it well, but eventually words can't really describe the beauty ...view item »

William Elliott Whitmore
Kilonova

Chicago’s Bloodshot Records (The Mekons, Murder By Death) release an LP of covers by seasoned troubador WIlliam Elliott Whitmore. Whitmore COVERS (geddit?) a lot of ground on Kilonova. Some of the tunes here were written relatively recently - he opens with a versi...view item »

Wilco
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

“Yankee Hotel Foxtrot” is widely regarded as Wilco’s best album. The album took quite a journey before actually being released and due to a job cull at Warner’s, it was delayed, and Wilco were dropped by Warner off-shoot, Reprise. Eventually, Wilco got their album back, signed to Nonesuch and had it released. There were t...view item »

Jim O'Rourke
Eureka

Sometime Sonic Youth guitarist and general all-round musical genius Jim O’Rourke likes to experiment with gentle, well recorded repetitive loops of musical phrases, immediately evident here on the opening track “Prelude to 110 or 220/Women of the World”. He will occasionally shock you with a bi...view item »

Melanie de Biasio
Blackened Cities

Belgian jazz composer / performer Melanie de Biasio assembled her choice collaborators for this single piece. Blackened Cities slides from smooth, soulful jazz tune into a high-momentum flight of instrumental power, de Biasio’s vocals free-flowing over the top. Powerful stuff, available as a CD or...view item »

Iron & Wine
Weed Garden

Sam Beam & co return as Iron & Wine to follow up their Grammy-nominated LP released in early 2018, 'Beast Epic'. Weed Garden is a collection of songs to complement the aforementioned record; its writing has been an evolving process the past three years. The six-song album was a smaller but significant part of th...view item »

Nathan Bowles
Plainly Mistaken

Banjo player, Nathan Bowles, who has played with Steve Gunn, The Black Twig Pickers and Pelt has assembled a band for the first time for his new album, Plainly Mistaken. Casey Toll of Mt. Moriah plays double bass whilst CAVE drummer Rex McMurry ...view item »

Tom Waits
Mule Variations

Mule Variations, whilst being typical of Tom Waits later work -- mixing experimental sounds, stomping percussion, jazz and beautiful songwriting, is also a high watermark in his career. Notable tracks include the mournful ballad "Georgia Lee", the creepy and original "What’s He Building In There?" and the gravel-edged blue...view item »

Lindi Ortega
Liberty

Canadian singer Lindi Ortega is back with her 7th album, a trailblazing concept record that reflects deeply on heartbreak, loss, resurrection and, ultimately, redemption. This record journeys through the American West, with twanging guitars, relentless drums and choral, gothic vocals. A rollicking good listen. ...view item »

Wovenhand
The Threshingfloor

I think this is the first I've heard of Wovenhand although I've got a vague recollection of coming into contact with some 16 Horsepower stuff at some point in the dim and distant past and apparently this is the guy who used to be their singer. So there you go. All sorts of influences seem to be at work in the presentation of his intriguing Ameri...view item »

Red House Painters
Red House Painters / Bridge

Of the two sorta untitled Red House Painters records, Bridge is the perennial underachiever, a record that's more subtle in places and less focused in tone. It makes for something of RHP rock record: a strangely joyous cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "I Am A Rock" appears, as does a gloomy, pan...view item »

Ryley Walker
All Kinds Of You

Despite the enamel-destructive qualities of this record’s name, All Kinds of You is a serious album and one that deserves to be taken seriously. Ryley Walker’s debut is laced with beautiful finger picking and cleverly thought-out folk songs. A righteous record that will please any listener who likes to liste...view item »

Gillian Welch
Soul Journey

Soul Journey was the fourth album by country/folk singer/songwriter, Gillian Welch. It was produced by her musical partner David Rawlings. Welch said that she wanted to make a happier album, one that would soundtrack a sunny drive somewhere. As for this vinyl release, Welch has said that it’s been a long t...view item »

The Skiffle Players
Piffle Sayers EP

Skiffle, piffle.. if Snoop Dogg was country? The Skiffle Players are a supergroup featuring Cass McCombs on guitar and vocals, Neal Casal and Dan Horne of Circles Around the Sun, and Aaron Sperske of Beachwood Sparks.  I am of course forge...view item »

Us and Them
When I Was Walking

Having put out a lilting psychish-folkish album with Mega Dodo Records in 2015, Swedish duo Us and Them return to the label with a lilting psychish-folkish double-A. I’m going to take a punt and guess that they’ve lifted their name from the Pink Floyd song. 7”. Sleeves are hand-numbered so it&r...view item »

Cat Power
Wanderer

Cat Power celebrates the great blues tradition of transience on her first album in six years Wanderer. It was written over the course of a couple years during which she toured, and travelled, and played. Folk and blues are fundamentally collaborative genres and Wanderer is no different, featuring ...view item »

Richard Thompson
13 Rivers

A member of Fairport Convention all the way back in 1967, Richard Thompson, is still making urgent and heartfelt rock'n'roll. 13 Rivers is his first solo album since 2015, and the first that he's self-produced in over ten years. The result is the complete erosion of any ...view item »

Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert
Here Lies The Body

Look at this all-star cast. Arab Strap's Aidan Moffat teams up with guitar ace RM Hubbert in a super-sized collaboration that also includes guest appearances from Siobhan Wilson (cello/vocals) and Rachels Rachel Grimes on piano. All comes out on Mogwai's Rock Action to keep...view item »

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Wolf of the Cosmos

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has always been of particular interest to me - not because of his music - but because of his name. Why exactly does he need to claim to the 'Prince' status? Is he actually a prince? Or is he actually an unnecessary ego? Who knows. Either (or neither) way, Wolf of the Cosmos is available on vinyl LP and CD on Domino. ...view item »

Songs: Ohia
Magnolia Electric Co. (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Magnolia Electric Co was the final album Jason Molina released under the name Songs: Ohia. Whilst touring the album, he decided to change the name of the band to Magnolia Electric Co (who never released an album called Songs: Ohia). You can hear something had changed - this Steve Albini-produced record has a harder edge than previous releases. S...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Carrie & Lowell

Sufjan Stevens left behind the folk game a long time ago, declaring his plan to write fifty records for fifty states a mere joke -- a sentiment that failed to wash away the beauty of the ornately composed Michigan and the pantomimic Illinoise. In the years since, he's been writing song cycle...view item »

Courtney Barnett
The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas

Courtney Barnett is a storyteller first, relating obscure vignettes of her life to song and then positing them to us, like, "ain't that just the truth?". On The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, she makes mundane stories about gardening sound surreal and cinematic and talks about making out with people at p...view item »

King Krule
6 Feet Beneath The Moon

Looking somewhat like my little brother aged six and armed with a voice something like a Billy Bragg who has the slathering, jowely mouth of a bloodhound, King Krule is certainly a distinctive artist and one who will divide opinion. He has slowly unfurled his talents over the...view item »
