Jack Rose
I Do Play Rock and Roll

Moving from the outer limits of the universe back to earth with something more organic. Jack Rose had a CD available only as part of the Three Lobed subscription series called 'I Do Play Rock And Roll' and now the label have pressed up a heavy vinyl LP for the analogue freaks. The is a lot less boozy sounding than some of his recent stuff and a lot...view item »

Tall Tall Trees
Freedays

This is pretty much a Mike Savino solo-effort. Recorded somewhere in the hills of Georgia (the state, not the country... probably), the Tall Tall Trees-frontman poured his heart and delayed guitar into his own record. Freedays, the result, is an up-tempo folk-pop effort that breathes both warmth and opt...view item »

Joost Dijkema
Sacred Revelations

A fingerpicker in the vein of Townes van Zandt and Neil Young, Groningen’s Joost Dijkema comes through with an album of dense folk ditties that veer from rambunctious to contemplative without ever losing the propulsive energy of his nimble guitar playing. Though drums, vocals and electric ...view item »

Jens Lekman
Life Will See You Now

Jens Lekman drops his fourth full-length album on a waiting world. The Swedish songwriter has really cranked up the rhythms here on Life Will See You Now, toying with samba and bossa nova among other styles. That means you get the witty intimacy of Lekman’s songs in a lively danceable format: love...view item »

The Paperhead
Chew

Nashville trio The Paperhead craft a deliciously off-centre brew of familiar acoustic backings, over which a rich palette of instrumental splashings lean in and out. This, their latest in a neat handful of albums, is reminiscent of Van Morrison’s more direct offerings, with a slightly melancholic Moody Blues swagger....view item »

The Whistles & The Bells
Modern Plagues

Modern Plagues is an album that grew from The Whistles & The Bears main-man Bryan Simpson’s dreams of a wild fantasy dinner party: key figures from history arguing and getting drunk together. Although this isn’t a straight concept album, the smart indie-pop songs of Modern Plagues...view item »

Kristina Pulejkova / Glen Johnson
My Heart Has Run Out Of Breath

My Heart Has Run Out Of Breath is a film and musical collaboration between multi-media artist Kristina Pulejkova and founding member of London-based group Piano Magic, Glen Johnson. Pulejkova animated the film taking her cues from Kubrick and Tarkovsky and Johnson composed the soundtrac...view item »

Nikki Lane
Highway Queen

Highway Queen is the latest instalment from Californian based singer songwriter Nikki Lane. Along with her backing band, she has now released three records that combine American folk and country with indie rock paired with her clever lyrics and smooth vocals. Hi...view item »

Onus
Ratsickles

Debut by Onus presenting six tunes honed from baritone guitar, bass and drums, each hosting intricate, chorus-sung narratives from vague and seemingly remote space-time locations. The music is dark-toned and downbeat; with descending arpeggios and sparse cyclical riffs a-plenty, interlocking with skeletal drums to provide lean bones for ...view item »

Marissa Nadler
Ballads of Living and Dying

Reissue of Marissa Nadler’s debut album from 2004. Now on the massive Sacred Bones imprint it’s good to look back at what brought Nadler to the point she is now. Darkened ballads of acoustic folk gently lull you in with carefully plucked guitars and ominous soundscapes filling in the gaps. Imagine ...view item »

Steve Gunn
Boerum Palace

Steve Gunn steps out on his own for a second full length entitled 'Boerum Palace'. Best known for his work with GHQ as well as his affiliations with Sunburned Hand of the Man and Magik Markers. Here we see him exploring psyche infused americana and folk, performed primarily on acoustic guitar and accompanied by Marc Orleans on Pedal Steel. Opener '...view item »

Okkervil River
Sleep and Wake-Up Songs

‘Sleep and Wake-Up Songs’ is the third EP release from American indie rock band from Austin, Texas, Okkervil River, who formed back in 1998 and take their name from a short story by Russian author Tatyana Tolstaya set on the river in St Petersburg. Released in November 2004, this EP was intended as an interim release in anticipation ...view item »

Band Of Holy Joy
Brutalism Begins At Home

Bad Punk/urban folk group Band of Holy Joy approach their longest stint of remaining active with a new release. Their new EP is titled “Brutalism Begins At Home” and it’s a 10” because of course, though it does include a download card. Featuring the most modern and British of urban hymns in “Removal...view item »

Vic Chesnutt
Little

It’s Vic Chestnutt’s 1990 debut album Little, back in print at last after decades of unavailability! This set of intimate guitar-and-voice songs was produced by R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, who also contributes some keyboard. The sparsely beautiful set has had five bonus tr...view item »

Philip Lewin
Am I Really Here All Alone?

Philip Lewin produced his album of sensitive and super-personal folk music Am I Really Here All Alone? in 1975. Thing is, it was only released as a private press LP, so he kind of was alone. His highly individual sound might appeal to fans of David Thomas Broughton, or anyone who treads their own path t...view item »

Ryan Adams
Prisoner

It seems a long long way from Whiskeytown now but David Ryan Adams is still at it veering somewhere between alt country troubadour and balls out rocker. This album follows his ill-advised attempt at covering Taylor Swift's '1989' and showcases a prolific period of writing. Indeed 'Do You Still Love Me?' is brash...view item »

Richard Osborn
Endless

Here is the first readily-available record by an unsung guitarist of the American Primitive world, Richard Osborn. Despite having studied under Robbie Basho in the sixties(!), Osborn has kept a low profile for mo...view item »

Julian Cope
Drunken Songs

Julian Cope is an acknowledged expert in the field of intoxicated music enjoyment, so this album of drinking songs, Drunken Songs, is very welcome. There is a song written for Cope’s own funeral, a song called ‘Liver Big As Hartlepool’, and a big 20-minute jam to close out the album, a...view item »

Son Volt
Notes of Blue

With his band Uncle Tupelo (alongside future Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy), Jay Farrar helped invent alt country and twenty years or so later he's still producing laid back chugging song craft. It sits firmly in a rootsy brand of country where men are called Chuck or Buck and driv...view item »

William Tyler
Behold The Spirit

This music continues to grow on me, with its' haunting melodies and creative arrangements. Gorgeous atmospheric folk music, with lots of impressive fingerpicking. I listened to this a bunch this past summer while on a little camping trip, and it sounded so much like the woods and mountains that the camp was built on that I couldn't help but grow to...view item »

Steve Gunn
Ancient Jules

Ancient Jules is taken from Steve Gunn’s recent album Eyes on the Lines. It’s a lovely little swaggering stroll through country-tinged American rock landscapes, with a message of taking it easy delivered alongside tasty guitar li...view item »

Brent Cash
The New High

Brent Cash is a pop mastermind like they used to make ‘em, building songs with an almost symphonic level of lush detail. He even plays all the instruments himself (apart from the strings)! As you can imagine, all that takes time, so The New High is his first album in fi...view item »

Mark Eitzel
Hey Mr Ferryman

Once called ‘America’s greatest living lyricist’ by The Guardian, Mark Eitzel certainly knows his way around metaphor and allegory. The ferryman, in question, is quite probably the same Charon that Nick Cave grappled with on The Boatman’s Call. However, Eitzel is far wryer than C...view item »

Townes Van Zandt
For The Sake Of The Song

This is a great reissue of a classic album by the great Townes Van Zandt and despite coming out in 1968 it still sounds as great as when it was released. One of my personal favourite track off the album is the great "Sad Cinderella" which shows how great his voice was and his very unique guitar playing style. This is a great folk album which is ...view item »

Glenn Jones
This Is The Wind That Blows It Out

Glenn Jones is a maestro of the American Primitive style of guitar playing: that sweet sweet Fahey-derived sound we all love so much. This Is The Wind That Blows It Out is Glenn’s 2004 album, now receiving a vinyl release for the first time courtesy of Thrill Jockey. Rich and beau...view item »

Charlie Ulyatt
Do Not Forget Old Friends

In the latter part of 2016, following the death of Leonard Cohen, improvising guitarist Charlie Ulyatt decided to pay tribute to the great man in a pleasingly oblique way. Rather than just throwing together a few covers, he pulled out phrases from Cohen’s poetry and let them inspire his gu...view item »

Sharon Van Etten
Epic

I've heard this a few times and it's totally got under my skin. It's weird how some singer-songwriter stuff just connects with you and others don't. I find it's largely pretty samey music but occasionally something will come along which does it for me. Though it's not all as straight forward as guitar and vocals as there's drums, piano, lap stee...view item »

Ignatz & Harris Newman
Bring You Buzzard Meat

At a Belgian festival in 2008, Harris Newman joined Ignatz for a lovely little duo concert, which has previously been issued as a limited CDr. But now, Bring You Buzzard Meat has been pressed to a handsome pair of 10&rdq...view item »

Rebekka Karijord
Mother Tongue

If anything could stir and unlock unfounded emotions, then it would be the surprise and traumatic three-month-early arrival of a child. Rebekka Karijord had to face just that, and her ordeal has inspired and shaped her latest release - Mother Tongue. Though in an epic straddle between dystopia and utopia, s...view item »

Sing It High, Sing It Low : Tumbleweed Records 1971-1973

Here is a compilation that pulls out the forgotten highlights of the underappreciated Tumbleweed Records label, which operated for just two years between 1971 and 1973. As the name might suggest, folky americana was the focus of the label’s energies, and Sing It High, Sing It Low contains ten excell...view item »

Stanley Brinks and The Old Time Kaniks
Vieilles Caniques / Nouvelles Caniques

This new album from Stanley Brinks will appeal to fans of Herman Düne, because Mr Düne is in fact Mr Brinks! Here he teams up with Norwegian folk group The Old Time Kaniks to explore a pleasing avenue of calypso-folk that he takes to like a duck to wat...view item »

Over The Rhine
Ohio

Over The Rhine are a American(a) folk band that has grown up around a husband and wife duo. 2003’s double album Ohio is perhaps their magnum opus, using its length to showcase the band’s considerable range, from deep piano-song melancholy to pedal steel rhythmic shuffle. This double vinyl reissue of Ohio...view item »

Christine Owman
When On Fire

When on Fire, thou shalt release a haunting electro-pop album that is both catchy and depressing - thus spake Christine Owman, who wrote and produced her newest release on Glitterhouse. The record sounds like those midnight fantasies that’ve gone awry but from which you still don’t want...view item »

Julien Baker
Sprained Ankle

This is a reissue of Julien Baker’s 2015 debut album, recorded when she was a mere 21 years of age. It’s a very emotionally direct record: Baker just pours everything into her tender songwriting, and the effect on the listener can be very powerful. The LP edition comes packaged with a brand new 7&rdq...view item »

Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau
Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau

Chris Thile, who plays mandolin and also sings, joined up with the pianist Brad Mehldau a few years ago for a series of shows in which they played both original songs and familiar covers in a beautifully sensitive style. This eponymous album features studio recordings of these excellent pieces: what a pair of ab...view item »

TAU
TAU TAU TAU

Shaun Nunutzi heads up Tau, taking a well-earned sabbatical from touring his crusher monotony with Dead Skeletons. Following up from the Wirikuta EP, he works with Gerald Pasqualin for a quickly made, easily done 'n' dusted collection of psych folk tunes -- I imagine there might be some r...view item »

Entrance
Promises

Entrance is the one-man project of Guy Blakeslee. Promises is his first album for Chicago label Thrill Jockey. It features widescreen orchestrations which surround his inspired storytelling. Although Entrance very much has his own style, Promises, on occasion, evokes the likes ...view item »

John Cale
Fragments Of A Rainy Season

Fragments Of A Rainy Season captures John Cale live and musically stripped back to the bare bones. It was originally released in 1992. The album features tracks from John Cale’s classic albums such as Fear and Paris 1919, but it is perhaps most notable for his cover of Le...view item »

Black Lillies
Hard To Please

Following up their 2015 single Hard to Please, blues-rock-in-an-empty-truck-stop formation Black Lillies are finally bringing their newest album across the Pond. Hard to Please is filled with road-trip-friendly vocal harmonies and country riffs, borrowing the occasional soul-outbreak, mashed together in a great...view item »

Wayfaring Stangers: Ladies Of The Canyon

Numero Group present a thrilling collection of rare private press music from California-based female folk musicians circa the early 1970’s. Wayfaring Strangers: Ladies Of The Canyon captures the particular milieu of that time and place, via the strange and particular songwriting of these amazing lesser-known women. Vinyl compilati...view item »

Gongtrain
Secret Museum of Kind Men Volume 1

This is such a confusing release that I’ve actually nearly finished listening to it by the time I’ve figured out what it actually is. What it actually is is the first in a series of singles in which modern musicians interpret songs from the crate-digging masterclass that is th...view item »

Bright Eyes
Fevers and Mirrors

Most people either love or hate Conor Oberst (singer/songwriter of Bright Eyes). His voice is full of emotion to say the least. Yes, he warbles at times, screams at times, sounds like he's on the verge of tears pretty often. This would probably annoy me but it doesn't because his voice fits his lyrics. There is a sense of put-on and a slight sense ...view item »

Flo Morrissey & Matthew E. White
Gentlewoman Ruby Man

Two of modern indie’s more genteel crooners come together for a bunch of covers old and new. James Blake, Frank Ocean, Frankie Valli and other disparate forces are rounded up for some Carolling here. The sonic palette is lush and pleasant - The Mamas and the Papas come to ...view item »

Patrick Watson
Adventures In Your Own Back Yard

Phil's been kind enough to dump a load of mediocre records on my desk to review even though I was kind enough to come in at 8am this morning to cover for him. About as close as we'll ever get to a reward scheme I reckon. Anyway, one of said records is the new outing from ...view item »

Nick Jonah Davis
House of Dragons

Originally released on Lancashire and Somerset last year as a limited-edition LP, the album is now being made available on CD and high-quality download. The re-issue follows the release of Split Electric – a split LP of solo electric guitar recordings with C Joynes – on Thread Recordings earlier this year. Nottingham based Ni...view item »

Willard Grant Conspiracy
Regard The End

I don't sense any of Harold Bloom's 'anxiety of influence', in the work of Willard Grant Conspiracy. Rather, Fisher has used the Nick Cave template to fashion and fathom a body of work of equal conviction and intensity: brooding soundscapes that resonate from some dark longing for the winter solstice to interminably delay its thawing. Regard The...view item »

Bright Eyes
The Studio Albums 2000 – 2011

Here, have a massive motherload of Bright Eyes: six full albums from the era 2000 - 2011, each of them remastered to perfection. That comes to 6 CDs, or a back-breaking 10 LPs if you choose the vinyl box, which also includes photo prints and a new essay on Conor Oberst’s prime project. Limited edi...view item »

Horse Thief
Trials & Truths

Horse Thief are a roaming band of Oklahoma fellas, making earnest and Americana-flavoured indie rock with a friendly face. Trials & Truths is their second full-length album, with songs that cover some of the subjects that inevitably spring from being a young band breaking the scene: touring life, relationships etc. ...view item »

Lisa Hannigan
Passenger

After a successful stint as Damien Rice's vocal partner, Lisa Hannigan set out to prove herself as not just a singer but a multi-instrumentalist folk songwriter. 2011's Passenger, Hannigan's sophomore release, showcased her true talents as an all-rounder, and is now available on vinyl&nb...view item »

MV & EE
Root / Void

MV (Matt Valentine) and EE (Erika Elder) have been partners in life and music for a good long while now: they know themselves, each other, and their sound inside out. Root / Void strays away from the heavier psych-jams they’ve often produced, instead rocking a mor...view item »

The Colorist & Emiliana Torrini
The Colorist & Emiliana Torrini

Collaboration can often form cheesy, chart-ready tripe. Not this one. Brought to us by Rough Trade is the self-titled coming together of The Colorist & Emiliana Torrini. This is a truly unique experience and a fully live rendition of a selection of Torrini's old hits along with two bran...view item »

Benoit Pioulard
Sonnet

An intimate album of warm melodic droning. Benoit Pioulard started the process of making this album by recording unexpectedly musical tones from animal or mechanical sources (eg. extractor fans), and then transposing those sounds to his guitar. Released on almost-identically-priced vinyl and CD by the ever-loved Kranky label....view item »

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Beware

I feel like i'm not getting enough done nowadays as there seems to be a new Will Oldham related release available every time I leave the house. 'Beware' sees our Bonnie Billy hook up with a bunch of super pro-musician types such as Josh Abrams, Jennifer Hutt, Emmett Kelly and Michael Zerang and a bunch of guests to produce one of his slickest relea...view item »

Michael Nau
Mowing

Twinkly folkie Michael Nau will make you feel like you're in a lounge receiving a good playlist of musical mood-lighting, with downbeat but ultimately hooking pop tunes produced and arranged with the starkness of an arena pop artist and the intimacy of The Tallest Man on Earth. Joined by a roster ...view item »

Nico Muhly & Teitur
Confessions

Nico Muhly is a busy young modern-classical composer and performer isn’t he? Here he is now, rocking up on Nonesuch in a new collaboration with songwriter Teitur. With song lyrics derived from obscure youtube videos and the music scored for a baroque ensemble, Confessions probably qualifies as a u...view item »

Songs: Ohia
Hecla & Griper (15th Anniversary Edition)

Hecla & Griper, released the same year as Songs: Ohia's self-titled debut, showcases Jason Molina's genius and talent even further with this set of short, sparse, and frequently catchy set of songs. The lyrics are deep and speculative, gaining a centre of well deserved attention throughout each song, along with the unique Songs: Ohia instrum...view item »

Carl Broemel
4th of July

Carl Broemel will be better known to you as part of My Morning Jacket, but here he shows us what he can do on his own. 4th of July was recorded in bits and pieces over the course of four years, meaning that it gives us little insights into life as it is lived, via the means of intimate country-influence...view item »

The Wharves
Electa

The Wharves come from loads of different places and combine a kind of fuzzed out folk and minimal psych which is comparable to both of Kim Deal's post Pixies projects (the Breeders and the Amps...view item »

Bright Eyes
Digital Ash In A Digital Urn

'Digital Ash In A Digital Urn' is the sister album to the Bright Eyes classic 'I'm Wide Awake It's Morning'. Somewhat out-shined by its counterpart, 'Digital Ash In A Digital Urn' is an electronic affair with loops, drum machines and sampling -- something totally new in the Bright Eyes catalogue. However, as ever with Conor Oberst, he puts ...view item »

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Sings Greatest Palace Music

Bonnie Prince Billy 'sings Greatest Palace Music'. So this is Will Oldham cocking up his back catalogue (before someone else does it,  says Phil). Ok maybe its an ironic statement or a little dig  at his precious following but c'mon people he's taking the piss out of you. If I want a Garth Brooks ...view item »

Robert Wyatt
Nothing Can Stop Us Now

A 1986 release of political torch and protest songs. "Shipbuilding" was released as a single and it remains a great working class song. "At last I am Free" sung in Mr Wyatt's unique nasal dirge is a powerful song. It has a bleak and touching cover of "Strange Fruit" made famous by Billie Holiday. "Red Flag" and "Trade Union" are reminders of how...view item »

Kevin Morby
My Name

Kevin Morby is the bassist for the summertime psych-folk outfit Woods, and also plays in Cassie Ramone's new band, the Babies. But sometimes he gets to be his own guy, too: last year, he released 'Harlem River', a smoky folk rock record in the Americana tradition. 'My Name' is that record's follow-up, a 7" featuring two new tracks, "My Name" and...view item »

Springtime Carnivore
Midnight Room

Springtime Carnivore is the highly evocative name for Greta Morgan’s solo musical project. The Midnight Room album grew out of a monumental relationship break-up, providing plenty of fuel for deep-emotion songwriting and melancholy melodies. There is a strong middle-americana feel to Midnight ...view item »

Luke Temple
A Hand Through The Cellar Door

As a pioneering songwriter of stripped back folk-pop, Luke Temple's acoustic offering A Hand Through The Cellar Door is as well crafted as it is sparse. Containing daydream-inducing The Birds of Late December, which exquisitely beams the Boston-born songwriter's delicate voca...view item »

Adam Green
Aladdin

Adam Green has, it would appear, taken it upon himself to produce a film version of Aladdin, giving it his own, fairly radical spin (the lamp is replaced with a 3D printer) and bringing in his New York associates to assist. This is his soundtrack to the project, a decadent song suite full to the brim with Adam G...view item »

Jack Rose
Jack Rose

Originally unleashed in 2006 this is a collection of live and studio recordings by the late finger picker whose influence has only seemed to increase since his untimely death at the age of 38. From his Pelt days onwards Rose had a distinct style which were music to the ears of anyone raised on John Fahey and ...view item »

Jack Rose
Dr. Ragtime & His Pals

From all accounts Jack Rose likes a beer. I don't know many people who don't to be honest but listening to his new album all I want to do is throw things in the air and get pissed. It's proper party time music. For some reason Jack's music is completely intellectualised by people. I'm not one of those people and in favour of being all smart and cle...view item »

Roy Harper
Flat Baroque and Berserk

The Forest / The Wald

The Forest / The Wald is a study and collection of work that reflects on fragments and echoes of tales from the woodland and its folklore; greenwood rituals performed in the modern day, fantastical childhood rhymes, sylvan siren calls that tremble through tangles of branches, electronics pressed into the summoning of otherworl...view item »

Padang Food Tigers & Sigbjorn Apeland

Richmond Fontaine
Thirteen Cities

Richmond Fontaine has always been about the lyrics of Willy Vlautin but they produce some damn fine music too. This was their seventh studio recording and showcases the slightly ramshackle side of the band with a series of enjoyable laments generally about things going wrong for the narrator. One of the better Americana bands ou...view item »

Richmond Fontaine
The Fitzgerald

Richmond Fontaine have now split, sadly but for many years they were one of the more interesting Americana bands peddling the boards. Although they could be raucous and energetic, this LP shows a more stark side of the band. In fact this collection could be compared to Springsteen's 'Nebraska' as singer Willy Vl...view item »

The Czars
Goodbye

More proper emotional indie music this time from The Czars on Bella Union which sounds a little like earlyl Radiohead but without the quirk that made them Radiohead. Thus making this sound quite average. Only it's quite a good tune really. Even after one listen bits of it had stuck...view item »

Bon Iver
22, A Million

That isolated cabin in the woods feels a long way away now: Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver seem to have made new album 22, A Million in a cabin in the internet instead. Lots of auto-tune, lo-fi crunch next to high-fi shimmer, and track titles to trump any vaporwave you could throw at it. Take your pick ...view item »

Pilote
Libero

Kathryn Williams & Anthony Kerr
The Resonator

Look past the quite frankly not-very-good cover art for The Resonator, and you will find an interesting leftwards turn in folk singer-songwriter Kathryn Williams’ career. She has set aside her own material and embraced the vibraphone of Anthony Kerr: together, the pair have taken on a set of jazz ...view item »

Leon Redbone
Long Way From Home

Unfortunately, even though Leon Redbone was well known and revered, he kept any details of his personal life very closely guarded, so very little is truly known about him. Incredible considering the warm and intimate blues he played. This is a lovely little peek into his history, containing some of his first ever recorded tracks...view item »

John Howard
Across The Door Sill

A very much stripped back version of John Howard is present on Across The Door Sill.

Available Vinyl and CD through Occultation...view item »

Passenger
Young As The Morning Old As The Sea

This is the quiver-voiced Brit who scored a hit with 'Let Her Go', the sort of song that managed to move even cynical old me to tears when I heard it in Primark. This is the 8th album from the extremely prolific musician and rather than doing it all on his tod he's got a crack set of musicians to help him fill out the sound. Expect highly emotio...view item »
