Neil Young
Cow Palace 1986

Neil Young had just turned 41 when he played this momentous gig at Cow Palace, San Francisco. The show was part of the Rusted Garage tour with his backing band Crazy Horse.

Cow Palace 1986 is available on triple vinyl LP

Lee Hazlewood
Forty

Compared to the intimate reflections of his own country compositions, Lee Hazlewood turned his enigmatic presence to the songwriting of others on Forty. The late 60s album has been lovingly reissued here by Light In The Attic with extra tracks from the recording sessions with legendary producer and arranger Shel Talmy. Just check the stunning big band version of “It Was A Very Good Year” and the twanging country funk of “The Bed”.

Guy Garvey
Courting The Squall

After releasing six albums with his band, Elbow, including the Mercury Music Prize winning The Seldom Seen Kid (2008), Guy Garvey sets out alone with Courting The Squall. The album was made simply because Garvey loves making albums (and has recently split up with his wife so will be dead bored - ed). Nevertheless, it’s still a deeply felt personal statement and serves as a glimpse into his very being.....(and his enormous chin- ed (again)).

Rodney Crowell & John Paul White
Luck Mansion Sessions

Jack White’s Third Man Records sure does like to create unique situations, and this recording represents just such a thing. American folk performers John Paul White and Rodney Crowell were paired together in pop-up space Luck Mansion, where they wrote and recorded a few brand new songs together. Lovely stuff. 7” on Third Man.

Johnny Cash
Greatest Hits - The Sun Records Years

This is not a Best of Johnny Cash album. If you’re looking for one, look elsewhere because here we only have the Greatest Hits. Only the greatest from the great man himself and all from his great period at Sun Records between 1955 and 1961. Released to mark the 60th anniversary of Cash’s first LP from 1957, the roll call of singles remastered from their original tapes on this LP is a delight; “I Walk The Line”, “Cry! Cry! Cry!”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Ballad Of A Teenage Queen”, but to name of few. The 180g vinyl comes with liner notes by the president of Sun Records. A truly great celebration!

Sorry Is Gone

Sorry Is Gone, Jessica Lea Mayfield has called it -- the latest (fifth) studio album from the Ohio singer-songwriter finds her with a redoubled confidence and positivity. Her music is her voice, her self-therapy. Recorded at Electric Lady studios with producer John Agnello, Mayfield's reverb-soaked bluegrass chimes against coruscating guitar lines. Raw and compelling, fans old and new are sure to connect.

Hiss Golden Messenger
Hallelujah Anyhow

Imagine having the self confidence to have that as your album sleeve. MC Taylor certainly isn't lacking in a belief in his own ability something that must have been even further boosted when David Bowie once said he liked him. This new album is a rather quick follow up to 'Heart Like a Levee' and comes with his own impenetrable sleeve notes. Check press release to see if you can make head nor tail.

Aaron Roche
HaHa HuHu

Aaron Roche is a Brooklyn-based songwriter continuing the great tradition of the American singer-songwriter with this LP, HaHa HuHu. Having played guitar for the live acts of artists such as Sufjan Stevens, R. Stevie Moore and Lower Dens, Roche brings this varied experience to this expansive and primal album of transient folk music. Roche’s sound ebbs and flows with a natural sway over his building soundscapes and he leaves his own impression upon American folk tradition.

Amateur Childbirth
Your Afterlife Is Cancelled

Amateur Childbirth is Ivan Matthew David, and Your Afterlife Is Cancelled is him confidently skewering religious cults, a different specific one with each track. Dark folk-rock is the chosen style, which is perfect for the sadistic post-apocalyptic vibe of the album. Released on vinyl by Blackest Ever Black.

Sea Town / Near You

Margo Price
Weakness

Folky country bumpkin Margo Price sits in a tree with her trusty acoustic (her backing band can't climb) for a pair of limited 7" singles on none other than Third Man records. The singles comprise two halves of an EP, so make sure you don't just get half an EP because you'll probably regret it. Weakness is Price at her most upbeat, striking up a heated conversation with herself with some religious undertones.

Leonard Cohen
Field Commander Tour 1979

This live album was recorded in Hammersmith Odeon, London and in Brighton. Leonard Cohen has said it was his best tour ever, and with the six piece backup transforming his simple music and raising it to the heights, it’s a beautiful capture of his iconic sound from the place where music, poetry and romance intertwine. On double vinyl.

Madeline Kenney
Night Night At The First Landing

Madeline Kenney presents her debut full-length album, which she wrote, arranged and recorded entirely herself and mostly at home. Night Night At The First Landing might initially come across as a straightforward indie songwriter album, but that would be before Kenney’s wild guitar starts properly flaring up. Night Night At The First Landing is out on Company Records.

Bendith
Bendith

When two welsh bands decide to get together and make an album you get Bendith’s self titled debut. Members of Colorama and Plu head to a tiny village that is very close to Carwyn Ellis’ heart. A lovingly crafted folk album about being home, and it is unabashedly twee, for all the right reasons. It’s nice when people “band” together, isn’t it?

Sirom
I Can Be A Clay Snapper

Slovenian band Sirom bring us their second album of wildly sculpted folk-infused sounds, on I Can Be A Clay Snapper. Their hand-fashioned collection of instruments emit fantastical noises outside of constraints like geographical land borders. A huge, mesmeric blast of fun. Mixed by Chris Eckman, for Glitterbeat, on LP and CD formats. Two tasty choices.

Sky Girl

Sky Girl is a dive into the rare, being made up of tracks that were initially issued in hyper-limited private press editions, stuff that you just can’t find. No names that will be familiar to anyone who isn’t a crate-digger, but that’s the joy of it: incredibly rare artists making beautiful music where no-one can hear.

Dent May
Across The Multiverse

Despite singing about his desire to never move to LA in previous recordings, Mississippi-born musical whizz-kid Dent May has now done just that - apparently to change his backdrop and find new inspiration. After all, that’s where his heroes Brian Wilson, Harry Nilsson and Van Dyke Parks found theirs. His new album, Across The Multiverse is his most complete record yet. Whilst keeping his signature sound at its core, there is also refinement from the arrangements and song craft.

Katie Von Schleicher
Shitty Hits

The debut album from the complicatedly named Katie Von Schleicher is an album of sweet pop that has nods towards the 70s soft pop of the likes of Emitt Rhodes. The grandiose arrangements suggest she could fit in as tour support the Lemon Twigs pretty nicely. Kind of emotional but also glam tinged.

Dusty Stray
A Tree Fell And Other Songs

Having moved to Amsterdam from Texas, Jonathan Brown formed alt. folk four-piece Dusty stray. Themes of lost love, heartbreak and loneliness weave through the band's fouth album A Tree Fell and Other Songs, but unlike many artists who walk the same path, there’s the occasional glint of hope and redemption in the songs. A Tree Fell and Other Songs was produced by the legendary producer Kramer who has worked with Galaxie 500 and Low, amongst others. Brown has no doubt that Kramer’s contribution was weighty suggesting he can turn straw into gold, just like Rumplestiltskin.

He still wanted to record with a band though and so headed down to Malibu to record Salutations with a full rocking band in tow. This includes band versions of all the Ruminations tracks plus seven additional songs.

Richard Warren plays in bands both his own (Echoboy, Kings of the South Seas) and helmed by others (Spiritualized, Starsailor), but this is him in solo mode, featuring his talents and nobody elses.

In 1976 six new songs were recorded with members of the Albion Band as a new version of the album was released. This re-issue combines all the tracks including a 28 minute 'song story' which opens the album.

Rick Deitrick
River Sun River Moon

Rick Deitrick released a handful of private press LPs back in the '70s, at a time when he was humby playing guitar in a world entirely of his own fabrication. On River Sun River Moon, as with his other records, he focused on little more than being in tune on the guitar, though this record is also inspired by his abiding love of nature and in particular the rivers of the American West. Many of these songs will have been made next to a river so buddy let me tell you that they flow.

Described as the anxiety-induced, claustrophobic spirit that the USA now inhabits, Tackle Box is the heavily politically involved, sometimes quite humorous, release from Hamell On Trial. Pretty much recorded by himself in his own home studio, this record is a great mix of fast paced, drilling vocals and acoustic guitar that is available on vinyl LP and CD.

James Yuill

But look, Yuill’s a last bastion of hope, a graduate using their degree to earn some money and pay some taxes and A Change in State shows where all his student loan went. Yuill’s toured with groups such as Royksopp, M83 and Hot Chip which should give you an indication of his musical direction - building, vast electronic music which is super danceable but also like the soundtrack to some epic future.

Chelsea Wolfe
The Grime and The Glow

Marrying the gentle intimacy of folk, the atmospheric voodoo of death rock, and the bleak, sullen nihilism of black metal, Wolfe's sound effectively cast a genre all her own: a cavernous rumble, marked by stuttering drums, ethereal synths, and a wash of guitar, all very much in the service of one of the most hypnotic, celestial voices in modern music.

Kacy & Clayton

With their washed out olde album cover and extremely goofy '60s psych fonting, you might think you were bumping into Kacy & Clayton in some sorta musical time travel extravaganza. They are, however, a modern band that exists right now, having recorded this album with incidental pal Jeff Tweedy (Wilco, anybody?) in 2016. Their fourth record to date, The Siren's Song is inspired by a plethora of rock and country greats -- and it's also navigated by one.

Joel Jerome, 'LA's Behind-the-Scenes Indie King' is back with Cosmic Bear Jamboree. Jerome evokes the slacker cool of the likes of Mac Demarco and Beck with ease, plus the vintage artiness of Ariel Pink. Featuring kaleidoscopic choirs, warm guitar licks and plenty-o' spacey reverb, his new album contains the hits 'Cosmic Dancer', 'Errbody Wants Somebody' and 'Complicated Man'. More psychedelic thriftstore folk-pop fun assured.

It’s a great mix, with the ambient production touches adding intrigue and detail to the songs. Call It Love is out on Jagjaguwar.

Here's a lad that needs no introduction -- yes, it's Neil Young. Decade compiled no fewer than 35 (thirty-five!) of Young's songs committed to tape between the years of 1966 and 1976. The album features five tracks that had been previously unavailable. The Warner brothers have reissued this outstanding record as a triple vinyl LP in a double-gatefold sleeve. And I got through all that without even saying the word: G**ius.

Stills-Young Band
Long May You Run

Out of the various permutations of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, this was the only collaboration between Stephen Stills and Neil Young. The 1976 album follows in a similar West Coast folk vein to their parent band Buffalo Springfield but there's moments of jazz and synthesised strings to give a more modern feel.

Neil Young
Comes a Time

After all the earth-scorched rock songs and talk of killin', Neil Young decided to draw back into his folksy shell, following up Zuma and American Stars 'N Bars with a soft country record not a far cry from his classic Harvest. This record's eponymous track is one of his most beautiful and the record's sepia-tinged sparsity proves delicacy to be his strongest point.    
  • Vinyl LP (0093624917588)

Neil Young
American Stars 'n Bars

Essentially, American Stars 'n Bars is the album Neil Young made after he was done making the classics now firmly established in the old rock man canon. It's a grab-bag of old additional recordings that hadn't quite made it before and features his swirling, semi-proggy "Like a Hurricane", which would later find itself a fan favourite. Heartland and heavy, it feels like a solid continuation of Zuma.

Vic Chesnutt
Ghetto Bells

Here is a re-issue of Vic Chesnutt's 2005 album "Ghetto Bells" in which the Athens-based songwriter was joined by a veritable who's who of collaborators most notably jazz icon Bill Frisell and legendary multi instrumentalist Van Dyke Parks. It perfectly places Chesnutt's poetic delivery within a frame of gorgeously realised music.

Anne Briggs
The Time Has Come

The Time Has Come by Anne Briggs is apparently Ryley Walker's favourite ever record. Deeply affecting and sweetly melodic, Briggs' writing was steeped in the ages-old tradition of story telling. The music may mutate but these are tales from the human heart. Some of her earliest works are on this record, her crystal-clear voice matched by plucked strings. LP and CD on Earth Recordings.

A.J. Holmes
Robin Hood Gardens

A.J. Holmes here pays tribute to Robin Hood Gardens, a soon-to-be-demolished '70s housing estate in London. Holmes recorded these melancholy guitar and vocal songs in various parts of the estate, relying on the natural resonance of the spaces, rather than any post-production effects, to colour the recordings. 10” EP on Onomatopoeia.

Juanita Stein's rich musical background spans from Coldplay involvements, to bands such as Howling Bells and Waikiki. On this occasion, her solo album is America is pure and unadulterated.

John Stammers
Waiting Around

John Stammers took six (6) years to follow up his 2011 debut but good things come to those who wait. This long awaited follow up has been slowly constructed using old fashioned analogue recording techniques to make an album that could be compared to the work of Nick Drake, Bert Jansch and from more recent times Sufjan Stevens.

Tim Buckley
Goodbye and Hello

Aloof songwriter and songwriter dad Tim Buckley started his career on a self-titled record, and arguably jumped the shark with Goodbye and Hello, his sophomore. This one pushed forward the psychedelic element of his sound and took him out of the usual milquetoast early stage every folk songwriter seemed to go through. Released in 1967 and inspired in part by the freeing rock fabrics of that year's Sgt. Peppers, this record sees Buckley getting just that little bit weirder.

Mark Fosson
Solo Guitar

Mark Fosson has been playing guitar for about 50 years now which makes him..what? ...well at least 51. This is only his fifth album in that time which makes him either a perfectionist or lazy. I'd err towards the former though as he twists and swoops with a nimble fingerpicking style and the sort of eclectic thought process you need if you are to rely on hands and fingers.

Laucan
FramesPerSecond

Laucan, who comes from the strange little town of Lewes in Sussex, releases his debut full-length album. FramesPerSecond is folk music with subtle support from electronics, driven by Laucan’s impressive falsetto vocals. Andrew Phillips of Grasscut also assisted with the record. This haunting and sweeping album is released by Sunday Best.

Greg Ashley & The Western Playboys
Greg Ashley & The Western Playboys

Greg has been a wanderin' America for some time now playin' music, releasin' records. This latest one should start payin' him some dues as it's out on Jack's Third Man Records. We're promised a rough hewn selection of waltz, country swing and honky tonk. Like a one man jukebox in the dusty end of town.

My Bubba
Gone / You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

My Bubba are a Scandinavian duo who base their compositions around the Norwegian lap harp. Here they are joined by a trio of Nashville musicians including a drummer named Whip Triplet. They play a composition of their own and cover the Bob Dylan song they first performed when they first sang together. Cute.

Eric Chenaux
Skullsplitter

Sometimes you gotta keep the unknowing masses at a distance. That’s what Eric Chenaux must have thought, because Skullsplitter is not filled with extremely hardcore techno. In fact, it’s overflowing with gentle and beautiful soundscapes, straight from his skull to the vinyl. Maybe that’s where the name comes from.

Guests like Terry Reid and Nedelle Torrisi help Schlarb craft his classic smooth-rock visions into reality. Out on Joyful Noise.

John Murry
A Short History Of Decay

Hard to find an Americana artist who doesn't have a tragic backstory these days but John Murry's could take the biscuit. Literally everything went wrong for him  but then...redemption! John meets the feller out of Cowboy Junkies who helps him put a band together and this is the result - a very personal document of a man's descent into despair. So tragic a documentary is currently been made of his life. Tissues out.

Lambchop
Nixon

Ah Nixon. The highpoint in the varied career of this Nashville million piece led by Kurt Wagner. Nixon was a glorious romp through the back roads of neon soul with surprising nods to Al Green and Curtis Mayfield -  a beautiful lamp lit album, moving at slow pace with Wagner's idiosyncratic wordplay front and centre.

Waxahatchee
Out In The Storm

Waxahatchee presents her fourth album Out In The Storm, which is borne out of the ashes of a relationship collapse. As ever, music and songwriting provide a vehicle to self-love and renewal. With a mostly live-in-the-room production, Out In The Storm is a strong indie-rock record with a real personal punch behind it. Out on Merge.

Ian William Craig
Slow Vessels

Ian William Craig somewhat returns to his tremendously loved 2016 album Centres with an EP that relocates some of those pieces onto voice, piano and acoustic guitar, with just a few licks of subtle tape manipulation lapping at the edges. Slow Vessels proves that Craig’s songwriting is just as powerful when it stands naked as when it is wreathed in fuzz magic. 12” on 130701.

Sam Amidon
The Following Mountain

Sam Amidon’s new album is unusual for him, in that every single song is an original composition of his. As well as regular collaborator and mighty musical all-rounder Shahzad Ismaily, our man Sam has managed to snare original 60’s-era free jazz drummer Milford Graves as a collaborator on The Following Mountain, so the standards are extremely high. CD and vinyl editions on Nonesuch.
