Angelo De Augustine
Swim Inside The Moon

Swim Inside The Moon is the new album from Thousand Oaks, California resident Angelo De Augustine. Just 24 years of age, the suburban singer-songwriter has made a deftly subtle, imperiously confident, sparsely i...view item »

William Ryan Fritch
Behind The Pale

Clanging dark-hued composer William Ryan Fritch wrote this album around the time he was expecting his first daughter so the album naturally has the air of worried expectancy. This is a powerful music that will appeal to fans of Swans, Godspeed and Jon Mueller the latter of which...view item »

Daniel O'Sullivan

Daniel O’Sullivan, of Grumbling Fur, Ulver and Aethenor (and that’s not all!), is in solo mode on VELD, but that doesn’t mean he has limited himself to a single approach. VELD is an album of pop songs, but electroacoustic abstractions keep lap...view item »

Bill MacKay & Ryley Walker

My Morning Jacket
Chocolate & Ice

A couple of things in on Shingle Street this week. First up is a mini album by My Morning Jacket which is marvellous. Reminds me a lot of Richard Hawley and REM in places. Again more beautiful summery classically simple guitar music. It's got a hazy feel to it and like Richard H...view item »

Chelsea Wolfe

‘Aokalypsis’ is Chelsea Wolfe’s tirade against the ‘singer-songwriter’ record, a term it’s obvious she’s both disgusted by and interested in making disgusting. Instead of making a directly confrontational record, akin to the more delicate, guitar-orientated gothic rock of ...view item »


Lejonslaktets play laid-back psychedelic folk-rock in a Swedish style: they could quite easily be the entertainment on a summer retreat to a distant cabin. Every part of their sound flows smoothly and without angst: this self-titled album is just laden with good vibes. Released in an edition of 500 vinyl copies on the Fonomonik ...view item »

Johnny Bell
Johnny Bell and The Visitors

Johnny Bell has created a new musical landscape for his Johnny Bell and The Visitors 7”. A mix of traditional banjo and experimental sounds and time signatures makes for a dusty musical interpretation of the U.S. South-West’s vast and empty deserts. Limited to 200 copies housed in a custom letterpress sleeve....view item »

Sephine Llo
I, Your Moon

I, Your Moon is the debut release (unless you're counting her previous EP) from Sephine Llo. From roots in classical music both from pure enjoyment and via academia, this record is a breath of fresh air. Not only that, the entirety of the release if dedicated to her husband who passed away weeks after discovering they were expecting a baby. As y...view item »

Bob Dylan
Hard Rain

Anne Briggs
Four Songs

Anne Briggs shone brightly during her brief recording career, making a huge mark on eager English folk listeners and musicians.

John Grant
Gets Schooled

Leonard Cohen
New Skin For The Old Ceremony

Cohen’s fourth album sees him adopting a richer sound palette than the more spartan and downbeat trio of records that preceded it. Chelsea Hotel #2 is the one everyone knows, but the 1974 disc is full of fan favourites such as Who By Fire, Field Commander Cohen and Lover Lover Lover. The lyrical content ranges from the intimately personal ...view item »

Richard Neale

Purveyor of gentle electronica and lover of hexagons Richard Neale presents his new album EVES via the charmingly-named Rain Bear Records. Piano leads layers of weightless vocals and ambient sections thr...view item »

Gunn-Truscinski Duo
Bay Head

Steve Gunn and John Truscinski loaded up their guitars, drums and synths once more for their third collaboration as a duo. The pair feel their way through mountains and canyons of electric melody, rumbling rhythms, and gnarlier abstractions, with a great loose organic feel throughout. Bay Head is out on...view item »

Bob Dylan
New Morning

1970’s New Morning had the dubious pleasure of following up on Self Portrait, one of the least well-regarded albums in Bob Dylan’s entire catalogue. It made Dylan fans much happier, as it featured the familiar nasal-style Dylan voice back in full effect. Now New...view item »

Lomond Campbell
Black River Promise

Lomond Campbell put together his debut album Black River Promise in the manner of several lonely-eyed young men before him: by decamping to somewhere remote (in this case, an abandoned school in the Scottish Highlands) to be alone with his thoughts and his music. The pop-folk results are deep and remarkable, augmented w...view item »

Scott Walker
Scott 3

On his third attempt at being the one and only Walker brother worth a damn, the not-yet-evil Scott Walker got more miserable and eerie, taking his baroque pop disciplines and the usual commanding baritone and marrying them with the darkest of lyrics. He hadn't quite regenerated into the avant-garde trickster who gets soused on the regu...view item »

Jake Bugg
Hearts That Strain

Recorded in Nashville with some of the best players in the history of recorded music, lord knows what these veterans of Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick sessions felt about this nasal voiced Nottingham upstart. Still, Bugg is nothing if not ambitious and this latest soul influenced opus contains collaborations...view item »

Matt Berry
Night Terrors

Hinterpest: a story of wildflowers, buttonweeds and cattle skulls

A curious creation from Sweden’s Mumbles here. Hinterpest: a story of wildflowers, buttonweeds and cattle skulls is a little story, telling a year in the life of some 1800s settlers. It is partly scripted, partly performed on instruments like violins, and feels like a wonderful experimental radio play, especially ...view item »

Lords of Thyme

Presented as ambassadors for the new wave of old English folk music, The Lords of Thyme commit their debut album to wax after making a gentle splash with the CD version last year. Pitching themselves between Nick Drake, Fairport Convention and The Byrds with a rich, full-band ra...view item »

Scott Walker
Scott 2

Another classic from Walker's impeccable career, this time his second solo album. Featuring yet more luxuriuant arranngements upon which Scott's charismatic baritone relates alarmingly frank tales of despair and deception.

Scott Walker

Out of the ashes of The Walker Brothers, came this, the debut album by one of the most singular and original talents to ever grace pop music.

Pearls Before Swine
One Nation Underground

We've had Sergeant Peppers and Their Satanic Majesties Request 50th anniversary specials but now it's time for something much more out there.

Johnny Cash
I Walk The Line

Classic Cash from 1968! I Walk The Line actually features re-recorded versions of various songs that were already favourites by this point, such as the title track, originally recorded in 1958. Johnny was still in very fine form at this point, and I Walk The Line makes for a great early hits co...view item »

Shintaro Sakamoto
Let's Dance Raw

Shintaro Sakamoto has sacked off his psych-rock pals in Yura Yura Teikoku to offer up something a little different on 'Let's Dance Raw', which offers up his psych guitar styling for a silky smooth funk project. Sakamoto's last solo record was the folksy 'How To Live With a Phantom', but the infectious grooves here are more dressed up, based arou...view item »

Gill Landry

Fisherman's Woman

A welcome reissue on vinyl of the tender yet powerful Fisherman's Woman by Emiliana Torrini.

Josh Ritter

The ninth album from Josh Ritter is one of those super-emotional, spit-and-sawdust country-rock albums that everyone needs a few of in their life. Produced with a nice full sound, Gathering turns in a baker’s dozen of well-crafted ditties. ‘Showboat’ is romping heartland rock, ‘Thunderbolt’...view item »

Lee Hazlewood
The LHI Years: Singles, nudes And Backsides (1968-71)

Mustachioed cheese-dog Lee Hazlewood is best known for his collaborations, noteably with Nancy Sinatra. Here he is performing Nancyless, but there are still plenty of duets to croon along to. His eerie barritone voice and oddball production brings comparisons with Serge Gainsbourg, but he's all about the pop, albeit serious pop. And weird record...view item »

The Parson Red Heads
Yearling + Murmurations

Carl Sagan
A Glorious Dawn

Bit of an odd one I've picked up here...'A Glorious Dawn' is a seven inch single composed and arranged by John Boswell that integrates the scientific musings of Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking with some retro futurist space-age synth prog. This has found it's way to release as a result of being viewed over 2 million times on You Tube and features lo...view item »

The Weather Station
The Weather Station

Self-titled and self-produced, The Weather Station is a collection of softly sung tracks that open your eyes to a fair few different genres.

Larry Conklin & Jochen Blum

Larry Conklin got his first guitar in 1970, after getting back in his civvies. He taught himself to play and wrote songs after discovering Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Rev. Gary Davis, who also played with just his thumb and index finger. Jackdaw was self-released in 1980, featuring his lovely 12-stri...view item »

Dongs of Sevotion

Dongs is not what fans of Smog's early work will be looking for. It is loaded with songs that nuzzle up to popular song styles, with decent production (compared to the 4 track stuff on most of the old albums). Still, this album isn't selling the staunchly DIY Callahan out. Quite the contrary. The songs are still insightful and slightly weird. Fo...view item »

Patrick Watson
Close To Paradise

This is a re-issue of the debut breakthrough album from the Canadian singer songwriter who has hit pay dirt in recent years with his songs placed all over the telly on such shows as Orange is the New Black, The Blacklist and the IKEA advert. His brand of simple, evocative confessionals are utterly perfect for such ventures.  ...view item »

Patrick Watson
Wooden Arms

I heard an interview with Patrick Watson and his musical collaborators and it seems that Mr Watson employs "found objects" into his musical instrumentation. Along with a bicycle pump, a box of dry cereal, and other things these items along with the winning entry of a poetry contest were combined to make an impromptu song. Wooden Arms is a great ...view item »

Walk The Line (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

“Hello, I’m not Johnny Cash”. Wouldn't have thought many were clamouring for a first-time vinyl issue of the soundtrack to the 2005 Man in Black biopic, but a quick bit of research reveals exactly that. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon tackle Johnny and Ju...view item »

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.

Hallelujah Anyhow

Imagine having the self confidence to have that as your album sleeve.

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.
