Richard Osborn

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 »

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

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 »

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

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 »

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 »

Loch Lomond


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 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 »

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

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 »

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 »

Benoit Pioulard

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

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

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

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

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 »


A quality compilation of new and exclusive material put together by David Allred. The tracklisting of oscarsongs includes Peter Broderick, Brigid Mae Power and Joanna Sternberg, and the overall suite is rather gorgeous. Both the CD and the vinyl editions are subtle, han...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 »

Lou Barlow
Apocalypse Fetish

Solo work from Lou Barlow, who is most notably known for his work in Dinosaur Jr., The Folk Implosion, Noise Addict and Sebadoh. Thick gauge strings put on a ukulele is the backbone for these bare and direct acoustic songs. Just one man and his small four-string...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

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 

Roy Harper (via his Science Friction label) is doing us all a valuable favour by getting a few classic early Harper records back into vinyl circulation again for the first time in decades, to celebrate Harper’s 75th birthday. Flat Baroque and Berserk was his most successful album ...view item »

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

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 »

Cate Le Bon
Mug Museum

With a new album in the works and her oddball collaboration as the Drink bringing her to new listeners it's a decent enough time for Cate Le Bon's earlier work to be re-issued. This is her third album and it showcases her way with a wandering and winsome melody. Duran Duran fans should note that her real name is Cate Timothy. ...view item »

Rodrigo Leao & Scott Matthew

Sturgill Simpson
High Top Mountain

Sturgill Simpson wanted this album to be “the purest, most uncompromising, hard country” possible, and he’s done a pretty good job: I mean, the first track is named “Life Ain’t Fair And The World Is Mean” after all. High Top Mountain is the debut solo recording by Sturgill...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.

Kathryn Williams & Anthony Kerr

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.

Jake Bugg
On My One

As far as I am aware, this is Jake Bugg’s first foray into production after his previous album, Shangri La was produced by none other than Rick Rubin. A bit of a leap for Bugg perhaps who wrote, played and produced everything except three tracks produced by Jacknife Lee. P...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.

A 15 year anniversary reissue of the 2001 album by Califone. Mixing up blues and country with a lo-fi, recorded out in the barn feel.

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

First up the most important question. What is that in his mouth? It looks like it could be some kind of bird or something. Not a good idea.

I don't think anything can prepare someone for this album. It opens up ways to feel that are so vulnerable, yet so necessary in this world in my opinion. A generous album is a vague description.
