The Mountain Goats
Goths

Wordy and literate storyteller John Darnielle (and his Mountain Goats) has this time turned his attention to goth, both the music and the movement. Keenly eyed observations on those bands that didn't quite make it or what it meant to be goth all delivered nasally over Mountain Goats regular brand of strum-a-long folk -- or not, in this case, since they've ditched the guitars in favour of a synth-athon.

Malcolm Middleton
5:14 Fluoxytine Seagull Alcohol John Nicotine

2002’s 5:14 Fluoxytine Seagull Alcohol John Nicotine saw Arab Strap mainstay Malcolm Middleton step out as an artist on his own terms. Middleton has subsequently perked up over the course of a long and fruitful run of solo records, but 5:14 Fluoxytine Seagull Alcohol John Nicotine is an album as wracked and self-examining as anything made by Middleton’s heroes Smog and Will Oldham. This new Chemikal Underground pressing comes souped-up with a bunch of rarities and demoes.

Townes Van Zandt
Live At The Old Quarter

Sun Kil Moon / Jesu
30 Seconds To The Decline Of Planet Earth

Oh no. Not again. Sun Kil Moon (aka Mark Kozelek) and Jesu (aka Justin K Broadrick) have been fans of one another for years and this is the second LP they've come up with together in recent times. The first one had it's moments so if they can reign in Kozelek's verbal diarrhoea this could be worth a listen.

Lost Train Blues

Could there be a more quintessential subject for a blues compilation to centre around than the train? Unlikely. Lost Train Blues contains recordings made by the likes of John and Alan Lomax, which have been languishing in the vaults of the American Folklife Center for half a century or more. Many have never previously been released. Raw and wonderful blues recordings, accompanied by an informative booklet. LP on Jalopy Records.

Johnny Cash
The Legend Of

'The Legend Of...', a best-of compilation originally released in 2005, chronicles the anthemic and widely canonized country rock of Johnny Cash. The record includes many standards from the songwriter and performer in black, including his prison-related songs ("San Quentin", performed in the prison as part of his tour, as well as "Folsom Prison Blues"), as well as "Ring of Fire" and "I Walk The Line". The record also depicts some of Cash's late-career covers, including his cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt" and his work with U2.

David Byrne
Live From Austin, TX

Here's a chance to buy a slice of, renown singer-songwriter, David Byrne's evolution on the live arena. Live From Austin, TX showcases the ex-Talking Heads member's on-stage flair perfectly. The performance, shot in 2001 soon after the release of 'Look Into The Eyeball', is an absolute must see for any fan.

Mark Lanegan Band
Gargoyle

The gravel-voiced ex-Screaming Trees frontfella Mark Lanegan created this new album with substantial help from ex-Exit Calm man Rob Marshall, who donated ten pieces for Lanegan to add to. The resulting Gargoyle album is a gothically moody epic of alternative rock, anchored by Lanegan’s rich vocals and some fierce guitars. On Heavenly.

Arda & The Stolen Moon
Minutes Into Years

Arda G, the central figure of Arda & The Stolen Moon, is an Armenian-Cypriot singer-songwriter from the indie-folk school whose material cuts right to the heart of her life and loves. Her vocals are earnest and the band’s performance dramatic when necessary, so their Minutes Into Years album can be pretty effective and affecting when it all clicks together.

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.

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.

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.

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.

No No No

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

Double Roses

Double Roses has been a slow birth.

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.

Andrew Combs
Canyons Of My Mind

Tullia Benedicta
Anteros

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.

William Elliott Whitmore
Ashes To Dust

William Elliott Whitmore drops a new LP on Southern Records (The Melvins, The National).

Unlike his previous album, Pangs is a full-band electric affair, with trusty sidemen Alex Neilson and Stevie Jones on board (plus several other guests). Excellent folk / folk-rock from a modern master. Out on Drag City.

eagle/deer
The Summer Of Sepia

A dense, sad and strange neo-folk record from Eagle/Deer. Summer of Sepia is a collection of American folk music driven by Sara Charles solo banjo and guitar playing and delicate vocals. Her haunting mountain tales and multi-instrumentalism bring to mind Sufjan Stevens, and this vinyl LP is available on Blast First Petite.

Laura Marling
Semper Femina

The new album from Laura Marling is landing! Semper Femina, her sixth full-length, shows off a mature talent and a confident creativity: these songs are intimate and complex and full of sharp details that will make you look twice. Released as a CD, single LP or as a deluxe double LP edition (now sold out!), which bolsters Semper Femina with bonus live material. On More Alarming Records.

Angelina
Vagabond Saint

Isle Of Wight-born solo artist Angelina presents her idiosyncratic brand of alt-folk on this 11-track LP. With an unusual blend of mechanical sounding production, folky songwriting and a voice that seems to belong on a 50s jazz record, Vagabond Saint is a unique discovery. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on the Wonderfulsound label.

Enderby’s Room
My Old Friend

Enderby’s Room head honcho Dan Mayfield seems like a good egg. Having played fiddle for Daniel Johnston and The Wave Pictures, he also runs a project called School of Noise that encourages children to experiment with unusual music-making techniques. That same willingness to engage others and foster positive creation is apparent on this lovely, brief collection of folksy pop and skiffle. 300 copies.

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.

Midlake
Live In Denton

Midlake love their hometown don't you know, and with their now rather famous brand of indie pop, they come in for a victory lap in the place they once blossomed from. Live In Denton is the band doing the delicate thing they do on stage, so chances are it is recommended if you like Midlake. 

Daniel Romano
Modern Pressure

Ontario-based musician Daniel Romano has released a twelve-piece full length record entitled Modern Pressure. A great mix of alternative-rock and folk and country music, this release seems like it could have fit in 1980’s bible-belt America. Unrestrained and undeviated, this record is available on Vinyl LP and CD.

  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Michael Nau
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.

Bob Dylan
House Of The Risin’ Sun

This record contains some of Bob Dylan’s early takes on traditional American songs, demonstrating the roots of the great man’s own songwriting. As well as the collection’s title track, we have versions of Blind Lemon Jefferson’s ‘See That My Grave Is Kept Clean’, ‘You’re No Good’, and a number of Dylan originals / arrangements. House Of The Risin’ Sun is an LP release on Wagram.

Old Fire
Songs From The Haunted South

Old Fire presents a collection of remarkably lush and rich Songs From The Old South, thick with bass and strings and reverb. The presentation of this release is really very fine, being a 180g heavyweight vinyl LP housed in a Vaughan Oliver-designed sleeve with metallic printing. Additionally, there is a download code and a bonus CD containing an ‘ambient album deconstruction’. On Brooklyn Bridge Records.

Benoît Pioulard
Temper

The second LP from Benoit Pioulard arrives via Kranky (Brian McBride, Tim Hecker). As it was on 2006’s Précis, so it is again with Temper. This is another set that blends the electronic and the acoustic into tracks of quiet feeling and gentle motion. Think Panda Bear but if he had been in, like, The Postal Service instead of Animal Collective.

Jeff Buckley / Sly & The Family Stone
Everyday People

Thought you were familiar with all the material Jeff Buckley recorded in his brief career didn’t you? Well you were wrong: a forthcoming compilation gathers together a selection of previously unheard covers, and this single pairs his take on Sly & The Family Stone’s Everyday People with Sly’s original version. 7” vinyl.
