Ed Harcourt
Beyond The End

Famed for writing exquisite pop songs that plough similar furrows to Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson on albums such as Here Be Monsters before turning his hand to being songwriter to the stars, Ed Harcourt follows his expansive major label debut, Furnaces (2016), with a real curveball. Beyond The End is an album of piano-led instrumentals, with inspiration taken from Saite, Mozart, Debussy, Max Richter, Philip Glass and Warren Ellis all imbued with Harcourt’s melodic and mournful sensibilities. LP and CD on Point Of Departure.

Sun Kil Moon
This Is My Dinner

This Is My Dinner is the ninth album from Sun Kil Moon. It was written and recorded in November and December 2017 in Copenhagen and San Francisco. There are covers of AC/DC and Partridge Family songs. Mark Kozelek has also set a chapter from Irish writer, John Connolly’s novel ‘He’ to music. So it’s not just songs about his evening meal, then? CD on Caldo Verde.

Ryley Walker
The Lillywhite Sessions

Dave Matthews Band recorded an album with producer Steve Lillywhite which was scrapped at the label’s behest. Now, this bit confuses me - the press release here describe the album in terms I would not match with Dave Matthews Band such as ‘art rock’ and ‘masterpiece’. However, they are terms I can associate with Ryley Walker who has tried his hand at re-recording the album, The Lillywhite Sessions. Although the Dave Matthews Band version was scrapped, some tracks showed up on their 2002 album Busted Stuff. From hearing those tracks I think they might sound rather fine in the hands of Ryley Walker. LP and CD on Dead Oceans.

Heather Woods Broderick

‘Glider’ is the latest LP release from melancholic, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Heather Woods Broderick. The album is comprised of richly textured, atmospheric dreamscapes crafted from Broderick’s, uniquely ethereal, wall of sound vocals, carried by untreated, exposed piano and layers of hypnotic guitar sounds.

Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou
Fair Lady London

Indie-folk couple, formerly of Indigo Moss and Danny & The Champions Of The World, Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou put their career on the back-burner for a few years to have a baby. Now they’re back with Fair Lady London, their fifth album. After having the luxury of a full studio and the experienced ears of Ethan Johns to produce their last album, they have stripped everything back and recorded this of a trusty ol’ Tascam 4-track recorder. Features a guest appearance from Danny George Wilson (Danny & The Champions Of The World, Grand Drive). LP and CD on Maiden Voyage.

Devon Church
We Are Inextricable

Brooklyn Winnipegger Devon Church, fresh out of a dissolved marriage and creative partnership (Exitmusic) with Aleksa Palladino, bounces back with solo album We Are Inextricable on same old label Felte. Awkward! Now solely responsible for vocals, he seems to have assumed the role of a heavily wizened, Waits-like whiskey crooner, rasping away over swirls of glum dream pop.

Darkr Earlyr

Right, well I hope you're up for some fireside folk on these dark and wintry evenings. It's Cubs, with their second LP 'Darkr Earlyr' following their 2011 debut 'The Whispering Woods' on Rusted Rail records. Taking advantage of the resurgence of interest in leftfield folk, the Irish band features members of A Lilac Decline, Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon, United Bible Studies and Loner Deluxe. Dreamy melodies, stellar improvisation and rustic songcraft make Darkr Earlyr an essential late-season listen.

Bert Jansch
A Man I’d Rather Be (Part I)

The Bert Jansch estate has worked with Earth Recordings to bring us A Man I'd Rather Be (Part 1). The collection arrives as a 4-LP set in case-bound book or 4-CD set in book-back packaging. With music culled from the highly prolific Jansch's '60s years, namely: 'Bert Jansch'; 'It Don't Bother Me'; 'Jack Orion' and 'Bert & John' -- so Part 1 starts, logically enough, at the very beginning. These four records were recorded in the space of just 2 years, and amazingly enough were of the highest quality.

Mumford & Sons

You know when a band is expected to shift a few units when the press release bangs on about the massive tour the band are about to embark on. In this case it’s the trust-fund Wurzels (thank you, Charlie Brooker) Mumford & Sons. Their new and fourth album filled with anthemic folk-rock is locked and loaded and ready to go. Produced by master polisher Paul Epworth whose production credits range from Adele to Friendly Fires to Thurston Moore. Lovely double LP and CD on Island. 

Adrianne Lenker & Buck Meek
A Sides and B Sides

Big Thief duo Adrianne Lenker & Buck Meek bring together their 2014 EPs A-Sides and B-Sides on one slab o’ wax/disc o’ polycarbonate. Anyone who copped the records when they first saw light of day will know that these are spare indie-folk affairs that any Zooey Deschanel-types in your life will go crazy for. For those who're new here - these are spare indie-folk affairs that any Zooey Deschanel-types in your life will go crazy for.

Adrianne Lenker
Hours Were The Birds

Adrianne Lenker has been causing a stir with her stunning voice and songs with Brooklyn-based indie/folk band Big Thief. In 2013, prior to her hooking up with them, she lived in Minneapolis and recorded an album called Hours Were The Birds. The album features just Lenker’s voice and guitar and was mixed by Andrew Sarlo who would also be the man in the chair for subsequent Big Thief albums, Masterpiece and Capacity. LP and CD on Saddle Creek.

Stephen Steinbrink
Utopia Teased

And I thought Stephen Steinbrink was such a nice clean living young man. Well understandably perhaps, after the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland he went a bit off the rails... eating LSD daily, refusing to sleep and locking himself in his studio. The results are contained within Utopia Teased, an album which eschews the clear lines of previous albums for a rougher production which mirrors the dark days Steinbrink was having whilst making the record.  

Dan Mangan
More or Less

Sold out - sorry!

Alela Diane
The Pirate's Gospel (Deluxe Edition)

The Pirate's Gospel was the debut album by the now renowned singer/songwriter Alela Diane. It was originally released in 2006. It seemed inevitable that she would end up as a recording artist, both of her parents were musicians and she grew up in a house filled with music. Her songs generally focus on family and nature, and here she is found already re-evaluating her life as things she had previously relied on were no longer available to her.  180g vinyl or CD, remastered with 10 bonus tracks on Allpoints.

David Allred
The Transition

David Allred’s The Transition arrives on Erased Tapes (A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Nils Frahm). There’s a nice interplay of chamber composition, folk music and close harmony going on here. ‘The Garden’, for instance, is the sort of thing you imagine Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears might have got up to were they alive today.

Malcolm Middleton

Sold out - sorry!

Two Medicine

Peaceful psychedelic rock is a genre underrepresented in between all the endless distorted guitar solos we get to listen to here at Norman HQ. Two Medicine, created by Paul Alexander from indie/psych rockers Midlake, are taking a much more poppy approach to psychedelia. Named after a part of Glacier National Park, the album flaunts a romantic sound, something of an appreciation of quiet, peace, and natural beauty.

Harmony Rockets with Special Guest Peter Walker
Lachesis / Clotho / Atropos

Harmony Rockets, better known as Mercury Rev, of course renowned for their free-wheeling psychedelic rock. Joining forces on Lachesis / Clotho / Atropos with Peter Walker, known for his American-folk approach to ragas. The record also boasts appearances from Steve Shelley from Sonic Youth and Nels Clines from Wilco, so it's gonna be either a trip, pretty radical, or both.

John Cale

Loren Connors
Unaccompanied Acoustic Guitar Improvisations Vol. 10

Loren Connors has been a prolific maker and documenter of guitar music for many years now; across at least a hundred records spanning four decades in fact. Here is the latest volume -- the tenth! -- a continuation of his unaccompanied acoustic guitar improvisations; he made a series of 9 solo acoustic records under the name of Loren Mazzacane between 1979 and 1980. His delta and country blues style is sounding as spectral and distinctive as it ever did. Limited edition LP on Blank Forms with hand-assembled art covers.

Novo Amor & Ed Tullett

Heiress is the culmination of over three years of writing, recording, rerecording and tinkering on the part of electro indie-folk producer Ed Tullett and multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Ali Meredith-Lacey aka Novo Amor. Bursting with choruses of heartfelt crooning and very meaningful lyrics (“In your outdoors, lay your throne and your wreath in your hung jaw, were you caught on your feet?”), it’s a solid work of millennial romance.

Bob Dylan
More Blood, More Tracks - The Bootleg Series Vol. 14

More Blood More Tracks by Bob Dylan is available as 2LP or CD versions which offer an interesting, diluted overview of different takes from his classic 1975 album Blood On The Tracks. It is also available as - Dylan nerds, listen up - a 6CD box set with numerous outtakes of each track including 8 takes of You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go, one after the other. I’d say the latter is for serious fans only, but there are plenty of you out there, so go for it!

Laura Gibson

Goners is Laura Gibson’s fifth album, but her first after having completed an MFA in writing, which brings a particular mature depth to her lyrics, which explore strange and dark feelings of grief and loss. These songs are brought into being by a band that includes Dan Hunt and Dave Depper, and with Gibson sometimes stepping away from the guitar into Wurlitzer and tape loop territory. Out on City Slang.

Doug Paisley
Starter Home

Doug Paisley’s fourth album, Starter Home, is his first since 2014’s Strange Feelings. Recorded in and around his native Toronto, the folk and country singer/songwriter used various friend’s home studios with many of them starring on the record too. The time lag between albums has only seen Paisley transform into an even better songwriter. LP and CD on No Quarter.

The Apple Tree

Sold out - sorry!

Tom Odell
Jubilee Road

Crooning posho Tom Odell limbers up for another chart-dominating year with his third LP Jubilee Road. The title track sounds nothing like Nick Cave’s late-period masterpiece ‘Jubilee Street’. In fact it’s more like closing-time Elton John. The rest of the album is that sort of thing you turn to whenever you’ve run out of Adele. We look forward to images of Odell chinking glasses with Marcus Mumford at the first post-Brexit Brit Awards.

Micah P. Hinson
When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You

Strong words from Texas native Micah P. Hinson, although his album seems to be on target if you're big into distorted singer-songwriter stuff with a retro early 2000s feel. When I Shoot at You With Arrows, I Will Shoot to Destroy You is the 4th album by the man who considers Obama to be 'the Murderer of the American Dream'--whatever that means.

Bert Jansch
Just a Simple Soul

Just A Simple Soul is the first career-spanning anthology of master guitarist and folk hero, Bert Jansch. The album has been compiled by super-fan Bernard Butler along with the Bert Jansch estate. For the uninitiated, this collection will give you an insight into the music and talent of a man who was loved by the likes of Johnny Marr and Neil Young. Double LP or Double CD on Sanctuary.

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 passing through London and Boston underground stations; both self-penned and made collaboratively with Nick Saloman of The Bevis Frond. A taut, emotive and bittersweet LP with cameos coming from Money Mark , Elliott Smith and Jon Brion. 

Oh Pep!
I Wasn't Only Thinking About You…

ATO Records (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For The Riff Raff) drop the sophomore LP from Australian twosome Oh Pep!. I Wasn’t Only Thinking About You is a record full of nice, well-crafted ditties, a few of which also come equipped with festival-friendly choruses. Think Camera Obscura with a bit more of a straight-up folk-rock vibe.

Kurt Vile
b’lieve i'm goin down…

b’lieve i’m goin down… is album number six from troubadour Kurt Vile. What he has for us is a rich new collection of twelve songs, a kind of country-indie-rock that Vile is obviously extremely comfortable making. CD and 2LP editions, and also available as a triple-LP with six extra tracks, titled believe I’m goin (deep) down...

Lindsay Clark

Begat and raised in the Sierra Nevada mountains and now resident of Portland, Oregon, subtle songwriter and nature-lover Lindsay Clark returns with her fourth album. Crystalline focuses on highly delicate, nuanced songwriting. Layered vocals, piano, flute, clarinet, piano and guitar quietly articulate Clark & co's expressive tunes.

Francis Plagne
Funeral Mutes

Sold out - sorry!

John Grant
Love Is Magic

John Grant feels that album-by-album his music is becoming a truer reflection of who he is. Judging by the cover of his 4th solo album, Love Is Magic, he’s really coming out of his shell. The former Czars frontman debuted with Queen Of Denmark, an album of sublime soft rock with unflinching and, at times, humorous lyrics. Since then his music has become increasingly more electronic and more experimental. His brutal and confessional lyrics remain.Love IS Magic was Produced in collaboration with Benge, AKA Ben Edwards from Wrangler who collaborated on the Creep Show project earlier in the year.

Charalambides: Tom and Christina Carter

Sold out - sorry!

Richard Ashcroft
Natural Rebel

I mean... will you just look at him. This 'natural rebel' was of course best known for being the frontman of the Verve until they multi imploded. "My strongest set of songs to date" says Ashcroft about his latest collection. Not a hard achievement I suppose given the quality (or lack of) seen in his solo career to date.  Someone get this man a tin of prunes.  

Stay Out Late

Texas quintet Buxton emerge from an involuntary hiatus of strummer’s block with new album Stay Out Late. Aside from dictating to you how to spend your Friday night, the album comprises the results of reinvigorated creativity, the band having found itself back in the studio for the first time in years. The similarity of principle songwriter Sergio Trevino’s voice to Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor’s is quite remarkable. Has anyone ever seen them both in the same room?

Benoît Pioulard
Temper / Precis

The first two albums by Benoit Pioulard, dating from 2006 and 2008 originally, get a nice double LP reissue here from Kranky. Temper and Precis showcase a talent apparently fully-formed already: these homemade-feeling songs, dripping in characterful fuzz and electronic tweaks, immediately draw you in to Benoit’s intimate world. Two albums in one package!

Benoît Pioulard

Benoît Pioulard may have concentrated a little more on his drifty ambient side in recent years and monumentally gorgeous it is but Lasted was the moment he blended his sonic explorations with glorious songwriting. It has a beautifully autumnal feel as if Jose Gonzales or Elliott Smith had been smothered head to foot in leaves fallen from sycamore trees. A beautiful record. 

Matt Berry
Television Themes

The Voice himself aka Matt Berry comes through with a typically zany collection. Along with his band The Maypoles, Berry has reinterpreted several of his favourite television themes - hence the LP being called ... Television Themes - from days of yore. ‘Blankety Blank’, ‘Doctor Who’, ‘Rainbow’ and more are reimagined in a library-ish style here. Naff as hell, but all the better for it.

Valley Maker

Valley Maker is the project of Seattle-based songwriter Austin Crane. On Rhododendron, taking inspiration from the likes of Gillian Welch, Bill Fay and Jason Molina, he sings about moving from one thing, place or belief to another. With all this movement, however, comes a firm-footed reassurance that he’s not going anywhere. LP and CD on French Kiss.

Adrianne Lenker

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 her singing is warm and welcoming. On Saddle Creek.

Cat Power

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 old friends, and a tour mate in Lana Del Rey.

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 completes the three-piece. There are a few meditative solo pieces on show but the when the band get together they swing. Inspiration comes from places as diverse as the Appalachian tradition,  Julie Tippetts, Cousin Emmy and Silver Apples.

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. She's previously been compared with Liz Phair and has worked extensively with Chaz Bear (Toro Y Moi). She's also getting ready to tour the UK and Europe just as soon as that 7.6 score comes in. 

They Haunted Most Thickly

Sold out - sorry!

William Elliott Whitmore

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 version of The Magnetic Fields’ ‘Fear Of Trains’, for instance - while others date back to the Great Depression. However old the source material, Whitmore and his guitar always imbue these ten songs with a dose of whisky-soaked wisdom.

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 ‘Wildgeeses’ and a few traditional renditions.

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 stuff that’s happened in his life since 2013’s Muchacho - he’s had some kids and left New York - and the upbeat strum of new Phosphorescent single ‘New Birth In New England’, Houck will be a more benevolent ruler than the furrowed-browed Vernon.

Useful Toil

For those not yet forlorn enough, may I suggest the appropriately titled Useful Toil, which should sleepily descend melancholy on you without fuss. Dream pop cut from the finest reverb cloth, Welfare take their favourite genre and give its ethereality a lushness, offering acoustic guitars, strings and flutes, plus some of that organ that makes Beach House so good. A sure to be gorgeous release.

Mourning Waltz

Straight outta Paris come 39th & The Nortons, led by enthusiastic band creator Nick Wheeldon with a mission to resurrect the sixties in sonic form. Specifically, the group are after that lovely overlap between psychedelic guitars and organs, folky songcraft, and symphonic sweep. Mourning Waltz is released by Requiem Pour Un Twister.

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 Amelia Meath (of Sylvan Esso), Molly Erin Sarlé and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig lies in the control of their own voices, and their awareness of their bandmates'.

Richard Reed Parry
Quiet River of Dust Vol. 1

Sold out - sorry!

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 space between the listener and Thompson, making the songs all the more profound. 

Trouble Anyway

After stints in the bands Long Hots and Wandering Shade, Rosali is now sharing both her strength and vulnerability on her new album Trouble Anyway. Charlie Hall from War On Drugs, Purling Hiss mainman Mike Polizze and critically acclaimed harpist, Mary Lattimore feature in Rosali’s backing band, making an album that displays musical lushness and riffs in equal measure. LP and CD on Scissor Tail Editions.

Blaze Foley
Sittin' By The Road

Blaze Foley was an Arkansas folksman who was shot to death in suspicious circumstances in 1989. Despite relatively little success in his lifetime, Foley is admired by the likes of Willie Nelson and Caleb Followill. Sittin’ By The Road collects a dozen of his earliest known recordings. The titles on this are bloody great. ‘Big Cheeseburgers And Good French Fries’. ‘Fat Boy’. ‘Let Me Ride In Your Big Cadillac’.

Paul Haig
The Wood

Former Josef K frontman Paul Haig returns with his 4th solo album, The Wood. It is a culmination of three years work which sees him exploring similar territory to that of Four Tet, Floating Points and Love Over Entropy. He sees the wood as a place where things are hidden and secrets are kept, and draws parallels between this and the human soul. LP and CD on Les Disques Du Crépuscule.

Cowboy Junkies
The Caution Horses

Cowboy Junkies. Love it. The Caution Horses was the third studio LP from this Magic Mike-ass band. This album was originally released in 1990, meaning it just missed the being caught up in the slipstream of Chris Isaak’s ‘Wicked Game’ (that song would hit the Billboard top 10 in January of the following year). If Cowboy Junkies had waited a year then this album would probably have shifted millions of units, but of course we can’t know the future. Anyway, The Caution Horses is a fine alt-country record.

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 stripped down collection closer to her folk and country roots than to her recent more pop/rock material.

The Breath
Let The Cards Fall

The second LP from The Breath shows face on Real World (Peter Gabriel, Loney Dear). As with previous album Carry Your Kin, the pair of Rioghnach Connolly (Afro Celt Sound System) and Stuart McCallum (Cinematic Orchestra) have constructed a selection of sweet neo-folk songs centred around showcasing Connolly’s fabulously expressive voice. Fans of Laura Marling and Cate Le Bon should turn their attentions this way.

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 is bittersweet. It’s not exactly a sad record, but there’s certainly a lacing of melancholia to the tracks here. Imagine Fleet Foxes if they’d been through the ringer a few times.

The Men They Couldn't Hang

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 band as vital and energetic as ever before.
