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.    

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. 

William The Conqueror
Proud Disturber Of The Peace

Indie-Americana informs the work of rootsy, bluesy three-piece William The Conqueror. Formed by folk favourite Ruarri Joseph, the band now also comprises Harry Harding and Naomi Holmes. The trio's recording sessions for Proud Disturber Of The Peace took them on a journey round the Isles of Britain from the peninsula of Cornwall up to the Isle of Lewis and back. May involve any of the following: brass, banjo, piano. Lovely. LP / CD on Loose Music.

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
America

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. Inspired by photos from the Great Depression-era, this journey runs deeper beyond its delectable rocky exterior.

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. 
  • Genre(s):

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. 
  • Genre(s):

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.

Psychic Temple
IV

Chris Schlarb’s band Psychic Temple recorded IV, their fourth record (apart from their full-length cover of Brian Eno’s Music For Airports) in an LA studio in the old way, with big grand sessions. 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.

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.

Whitney
You've Got A Woman / Gonna Hurry (As Slow As I Can)

Signed to Secretly Canadian, Whitney are Chicago's modern day answer to indie-rock. Their latest single is a glut of material is promising, You've Got A Woman / Gonna Hurry (As Slow As I Can) is an intriguing duo that fail to bore at any moment. The release is direct, candid and rooted deeply in groove.

Fleet Foxes
Helplessness Blues

CD and double-vinyl re-issue of Helplessness Blues, the sprawling second album from indie/folk sensations Fleet Foxes and which had the unenviable task of following one of the most beloved debuts of the Noughties and whose recording triggered a lengthy hiatus. Also the last Fleet Foxes album to include a certain Mr Josh Tillman... 

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.

Maia
Wild Waters

Maia are a forward thinking folk band that do very nicely thank you on the English folk scene. They marry traditional folk arrangements with more modern production techniques and unique songwriting. They are produced by Leeds sonic whizzkid Choque Hosein who teases out of them intense sci fi folk and whimsical off kilter psychedelic compositions.

Bob Dylan
Time Out Of Mind

1997's 'Time out of Mind' is Dylan's 30th album and is considered to be among his finest work. Bagging 3 Grammy awards, this double album (his first since 1970), is both atmospheric and captivating and followed the disappointing 'Under the Red Sky'. It was duly was considered a return to form by both fans and critics. Produced by Daniel Lanois, this double reissue is limited edition so order now to avoid terrible sadness!

Bob Dylan
The Essential Bob Dylan

Say no more: it’s The Essential Bob Dylan. It can’t have been easy to determine which parts of the old legend’s huge catalogue were ‘essential’ and which weren’t, but these 23 tracks do a pretty good job, showing us a good few different sides to Dylan’s never-ending journey, including the ‘reedy-voiced beat-poetry’ and the ‘deep-voiced country’ years. 2LP on Sony.

Victoria Williams
Victoria Williams & The Loose Band 'Town Hall 1995'

Back in 1995 country starlet Victoria Williams was on tour and eventually landed at an unnamed Town Hall (we're guessing Pudsey) where this live set was recorded. Lou Reed turns up for a duet (which actually puts paid to our hunch that this was recorded in Pudsey) and a good impromptu time was had by all.

Laura Veirs
Troubled By Fire

This was Laura Veirs third album from back in 2003 and the first to reach a wider exposure before most of us checked in on the subsequent 'Carbon Glacier'. It showcases her delicious brand of beautiful voice, folky windswept songwriting and always the sense that it's very cold where she is. Now issued on lovely vinyl.

Glenn Jones
Against Which The Sea Continually Beats

I had no idea that Glenn Jones was in US post rockers Cul-De-Sac but there you go. You learn something every day. This is his 2007 solo album which perfectly demonstrates his style of American Primitive Guitar  - the fingerpicked style invented by John Fahey. First time on vinyl for this one and I’m guessing it will be lovely.

Trevor Sensor
Andy Warhol's Dream

Trevor Sensor is a young man who has a gravelly, growly voice that belies his years. This debut features members of Whitney as his backing band and is co-produced by Richard Swift and the one out of Foxygen. Like a lot of young people he lays his soul bare and doesn’t bottle it all up like they did in my day.

Kevin Morby is releasing a new twelve-track record entitled City Music.

Heavily influenced by Can, Grizzly Bear, and Television london psych-folk artist Jack Cheshire has brought his long time collaborators together for his new album.

John Smith
Headlong

In these days of google-friendly artist and band names it's almost heartening that John Smith has stuck to his birth moniker rather than calling himself John Smmmmmmmmmith or similar. However his music is almost as bland as his name being the sort of hushed acoustic troubadour music with husky voice that will do pretty well in Radio 2 playlist meetings.

Burns

Halasan Bazar are a Norwegian group who have done pretty well thank you in France.

Compton & Batteau
In California

Compton & Batteau recorded their one and only album, In California in 1971, in California. It’s a classic-feeling suite of laid-back West Coast rock that instantly recalls a certain kind of troubador. The duo quickly vanished into obscurity, but In California has stuck around being quietly wonderful ever since. Now reissued by Earth Recordings!

Alexis Taylor
Piano

Alexis Taylor steps away from the pop star spotlight of Hot Chip (or indeed the improv lamplight of About Group) for a subtle solo album in a shaded corner. Piano was recorded by Alexis alone, with just his voice and a grand piano, both untreated by effects. New songs and reimagined old ones alike. What a lovely, simple record. On Moshi Moshi.

Harry Tausig & Max Ochs
The Music of Harry Taussig & Max Ochs

Harry Taussig and Max Ochs are a pair of guitarists who were contemporaries of Robbie Basho and John Fahey (sharing space on a 1967 sampler LP), but whose American Primitivisms never picked up quite as wide a listenership. Tompkins Square have been working to change that, and this release, which features brand new material from these guitar veterans, does a great job. LP release.

Ralegh Long
Upwards Of Summer

English songwriter Ralegh Long's debut album Hoverence was a baroque piece of English pop with nods to Nick Drake and Laura Nyro but here he's cranked up the volume and produced a set of upbeat guitar pop nuggets comparable to Robyn Hitchcock and perhaps Ron Sexsmith.  Chiming guitar melodies and no nonsense songwriting in tandem.

Jeff Tweedy
Together At Last

Fans of Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy's positively sweethearted oeuvre will be pleased to hear he's got a new solo record out! This time, instead of releasing a lengthy double-album of new tunes with his son on drums (so dad rock it hurts), he takes old and often classic Wilco material and strips it down. A solemn, acoustic record, Together At Last brings together songs from the humble country beginnings of Tweedy's band to their experimental, canonical outer reaches, putting them all in the same intimate context. And we promise you it's him on the cover, not Neil Young.

Hannah Peel
Find Peace / Rebox – I Believe in Father Christmas

Oh shit. There's mention of Christmas. We haven't decorated at all and are completely unprepared for this development. Indie folk artist Hannah Peel has a new 7" out that, as always, showcases her commanding and unwavering vocal and the intricate melodies that go with it. That there's a tune called "I Believe In Father Christmas" is totally worrying, but it'll be okay in the end.

Larkin Grimm
Chasing An Illusion

With a decade-long history releasing meandering tapestry records, Larkin Grimm has long since laid the ground for Chasing An Illusion. Her ominous songs bridge corners of genre including hints of neofolk, jazz and a backwards pastoral Americana, while her lyrics here stand as her most direct and confrontational, staring contests shot through warped musics.

Miranda Lee Richards
Existential Beast

Well this is a swift follow up to last years Echoes in the Dreamtime suggesting that Miranda Lee Richards is on something of a roll. These eight tracks showcase a murkier more mysterious take on her folk rock. She has pals in high places and has received good plaudits and airplay so hopefully this will get her exquisite music into more homes.

Father John Misty
Pure Comedy

Here he comes again 'The Dancing Man' whose varied folk stylings on 'I Love You Honeybear' sent him from folk also-ran to beard of a generation. That album's mix of confessional songwriting, daring lyricism and evocative and diverse production made it more than just another folk album. I wonder how many songs on this much anticipated follow up are about his wife?

A Youtube sensation at the age of 12, Marten is now getting some serious attention, including a nomination for BBC Sound of 2016. And she's still only 17. According to her Wikipedia page she is, apparently, obsessed with alpacas. Interesting, but there's no mention of any llama-like shenanigans on 'Milk and Honey'.

House and Land
House and Land

Sally Anne Morgan and Sarah Louise Henson join forces to create House and Land. Both women being multi-instrumentalists, they have a wide range of musical variety at their fingertips, with Sarah playing the 12-string guitar, shruti box, bouzouki and performing vocals, while Sally plays the fiddle, banjo, shruti box and also sings. These two women make a strong duo. Since their formation (which was not long ago) they've already toured around the U.S twice, with many featuring names. This self titled album heavily portrays their eclectic brilliance as a duo.

The Builders And The Butchers
The Spark

Portland's The Builders And The Butchers have delivered their fifth album, which they've named The Spark. The band place a strong emphasis on performance, and are apparently quite a thing to behold live on stage; and sometimes off stage.. Animated is the word. Expect plenty of anthemic, sing-along tunes. The guys have immersed themselves in icons such as Tom Waits. Can't wait. LP/CD on Badman.

Woods
Love Is Love

Written and recorded in the two months following the US election, Love Is Love is a collection of songs that try to bring together and fix the America that Woods think is becoming fractured and broken with hatred. Gentle beats and soft vocals are in abundance on this record that is available on Vinyl LP, CD and Cassette tape.
