Pokey LaFarge
Manic Revalations

Hello Mrs LaFarge  - is your Pokey in? It really is quite some name but that hasn’t stopped the Poke-meister from forging a decent career as an old fashioned songwriter just sayin; what he’s see in’, adding horns to it and sounding something like Graham Parker and the Rumour or maybe a hint of Dexys. Good solid fun.

Tara Jane O’Neil
Tara Jane O’Neil

Tara Jane O'Neil was once in the magnificent Rodan but has long since been more noted for her wandering and prolific solo career. Here she teams up with a bunch of people for what she calls a 'singer-songwriter endeavour' half of which was recorded at Wilco's 'The Loft' studio. Another missive to add to a career that continues to follow an idiosyncratic path.

Seabuckthorn
Turns

From his whirlwind of psychedelia, Seabuckthorn (aka Andy Cartwright) builds upon his 2016 full-length with 10 track album - Turns. Typically misty and embodied with confusion, this is an experimental twist of modern classical. Cold and metallic landscape are forged within this extremely cinematic cut.

Scout Paré-Phillips
Door Left Open

Since 2015’s dark Heed The Call, Door Left Open is the follow up full length from Scout Paré-Phillips. Still just as brooding and heavy, her vocal style and songwriting kicks like a shadowed Joni Mitchell, with the sparse presence of Leonard Cohen. The Multi-instrumentalist crafts a unique style of dark folk, sometimes heavy and burgeoning, others, delicate and distant.

Shirley Collins
Shirley Sings Irish

Shirley Collins is credited with the English Folk Revival of the 1960's and 70's, and rightly so.

Trembling Bells / Alex Rex
The Auld Triangle

Like a sort of raggle-taggle version of Band Aid, Scottish folk minstrels Trembling Bells have hauled a pile of their famous friends into the studio to sing this song much beloved of drunks. Alasdair Roberts, Ricky Ross (really?) , Dan Haywood, Mike Heron, Scott Fagan and Amy Cutler all lend a hand on a tune which could rival 'Fairytale of New York' in the weep at Christmas stakes.

Nev Cottee
Broken Flowers

Blossoming with optimistic shoots of psych-infused pop is Nev Cottee's 2017 full-length - Broken Flowers. Whilst being consistently inviting, the piece is an intimate edition, lodged with melancholic tales of heartbreak and lovesickness. Above all it's Cottee's candid attitude that makes the release so endearing, and one difficult to overlook.

Johnny Cash
At Folsom Prison

At Folsom Prison is one of the most beloved Johnny Cash recordings. The music here, more than on any other recording is imbued with his grit, his spirituality and his wry sense of humour. The set list was put together especially for the concert and the songs deal with subjects that would likely be close the inmates thoughts. It was because of this album that Johnny Cash earned the moniker The Man In Black.

Frederick Michael St. Jude

Here we have No No No, the first Beirut album since 2011’s The Rip Tide.

Karen Elson
Double Roses

Double Roses has been a slow birth.

Features a slew of big-name collaborators including Laura Marling and Father John Misty.

Allred & Broderick
Find The ways

Peter Broderick and David Allred’s musical partnership is a beautiful thing: they use only their voices and their chosen string instruments (violin and upright bass), and they record live, without overdubs or edits.

Tullia Benedicta
Anteros

Tullia Benedicta is an Italian musician with something of a shoegaze past. On debut solo album Anteros however, she works with slinking electronics and cold-eyed vocals, exploring kinky sexual themes through the use of obliquely sampled pornography and cloaked lyricism.

Lambchop
Is a Woman

This was the at-the-time-disappointing follow up to the splendid Nixon album where Lambchop eschewed the floaty country soul and made what seemed to be a samey set of piano-led torch songs. Yet time has a way of changing things and Is a Woman is now seen as something of a modern classic and is another oddball but pleasant diversion in a career that could be defined by the word idiosyncratic.

Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon
The Statue of The Hunter is Lost at Sea

The third album by Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon arrives after seven years away, but it seems that time has only allowed the Irish group to sound more like themselves. Third album The Statue of The Hunter is Lost at Sea has a special feel to it: something in the way that folk songs become swathed in wisps of shoegaze and abstract drones is mysterious and ineffable. It’s special stuff! CD on the Rusted Rail label.

Detroit Twelve String Blues & Rags is full of just that, and it's released by Jack White’s Third Man Records.

Jenny Hval's debut record under her own name (after a run of releases as the confrontational and action-packed rockettothesky) investigates the nuances of gender and sexuality through a mystical kind of folklore. Her unique, far-reaching voice combines with spectral guitar picking for a record like none other in her career -- those who are coming to this from Innocence Is Kinky will be taken aback.

Tim Darcy
Saturday Night

Ought are one of our favourite bands here at the towers and much of the enjoyment we get is down to singer Tim Darcy's twangy distinctive vocals and oddball lyrical dexterity. If we thought his solo work was going to go down the weird route of his excellent tape collaboration with AJ Cornell then from early teasers this could be a surprise sounding very much like the Strokes or Parquet Courts.

Myriam Gendron
Not So Deep As A Well

A beautifully light and airy folk album from Myriam Gendron from Montreal. Her songs on Not So Deep As Well, her debut LP, are based around the poetry of Dorothy Parker and her clear, deep voice delivers the enthralling lyrics with great storytelling ability and when combined with the simple melody of her guitar, Gendron creates an entrancing atmosphere which warmly cocoons around you like a large, colourful quilt.

Some Twist

After the short lived indie-folk-pop projects Page France and Cotton Jones Michael Nau went it alone, and after two full lengths in 2016 he returns to Full Time Hobby with a third. Close, warm and personal indie pop tracks with Good Thing being a perfect lead into his fireside crackle tone. Bleedin’ lovely.

Neko Case
Live From Austin, TX

Despite beginning her career as a punk rock drummer and spending a large part of it singing back up for New Pornographers, it is for her voice that Neko Case will probably be remembered. I once saw it described as "the sort of voice that does something funny to a man". Here it is swooping and carousing in a live set from 2003. Case picks out bits of her first three solo records and performs them with gusto to some pretty happy Texans.

Devon Sproule
The Gold String

It seems like Devon Sproule has been around forever but she's still somehow only 34. This latest missive from the Virginia based songwriter is inspired by the time she was staying on a remote and rather than eat her dinner set about writing sprawling verse. The result is a short but lush LP with guest spots from Ed Askew and Toronto dream poppers Bernice.

We All Want The Same Things

John Moreland
Big Bad Luv

John Moreland has so far received word of mouth acclaim with a series of self released albums culminating in an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last year. Now he has been signed to 4AD and so will I'm sure achieve much wider recognition. 'Big Bad Luv' is a record about love, faith and the human condition which could be the sort of gentle country rock balm we need in 2017.

Jeb Loy Nichols
Country Hustle

Jeb Loy Nichols does not lie when he calls his record Country Hustle: there are plenty of country sounds and vibes in here, and also a fair amount of New York hustler-music groove too.

Steve Mason
Boys Outside

Ah remember 2013? What a golden year that was. And if you were lucky it was soundtracked the baggy oddball pop of the Beta Band's Steve Mason. Mason is the sort of man who does his best to sound like an interesting Guy Garvey with polished considered pop and a few electronics hurled in. Now back out on vinyl.
