Damien Jurado
Rehearsals for Departure

The 1999 album from Damien Jurado is back back back in the form of vinyl and cassette reissues on Sub Pop. Rehearsals For Departure is Jurado’s second full-length, and rather more (indie) folky than his debut. Each song feels long lived-in and heavy with melancholy, although Jurado’s delicate constructions of guitar, voice, harmonica, and occasionally a fuller band, make the album a compelling experience.

Bert Jansch with Loren Auerbach
Colours Are Fading Fast

Awww this is so lovely. A collaboration between sweet voiced folkie Loren Auerbach and soon-to-be-husband folk guitar tangler Bert Jansch. The sweet sounds will remind listeners of the likes of Virginia Astley and Vashti Bunyan. Remastered from the original tapes, including a third disc of previously unheard material.

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-stringed guitar, singing alone in empty rooms between gigs.

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.

Richard Youngs
The Rest Is Scenery

Perpetual experimentalist and underground national treasure Richard Youngs has written each of the songs of The Rest Is Scenery around just one chord, because why the hell not? He wants it to be possible for anyone to cover these songs with just the slightest of guitar experience, except of course all those magical Youngsian touches cannot be replicated. CD on the Glass Records Redux label.

Gillian Welch
Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg

Two delicious discs of Gillian Welch deep cuts, drawn from her analogue tape archives. Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg compliments her Revival album perfectly, being full of alternative versions, demo versions and outtakes. Furthermore, eight of these tracks have never even been released before! Double CD on Acony Records.

Naïm Amor & John Convertino
The Western Suite and Siesta Songs

The Western Suite and Siesta Songs is the 2016 instrumental southwestern album by duo Naïm Amore & John Convertino. Majestic vistas and long stretches of scorching desert road are the images conjured up by the duo's finely crafted arrangements, including the famous lap-steel guitar - a defining characteristic of the country and western genre. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on the LM Dupli-Cation label.

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, and he can be proud of his country credentials.

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 of CD, cassette tape or vinyl editions: there is even a deluxe LP edition with a bonus 12” of extended versions. On Jagjaguwar

Hiss Golden Messenger
Southern Grammar

Triumphant folk rock star Hiss Golden Messenger released the excellent Lateness of the Dancers last year and he returns now with Southern Grammar, a miniature release that houses unwanted cuts from the record itself as well as an official place for "Brother, Do You Know The Road?" to lay its weary head.

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. Perhaps this is why the album is called On My One and has such insular, inflected track titles as ‘Love Hope and Misery’ and ‘Gimme the Love’ which sees Bugg begging for love in the chorus. It’s yet another move away from the boy-with-guitar sound of his first album and one with bold ambitions for rock/pop success.

Bright Eyes
Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil

A reissue of Bright Eyes' 2002 full length release, Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil. With equal parts folk and indie, frontman Conor Oberst's authentic and well-crafted songwriting is accompanied by his shaky Nebraska voice and diverse instrumentation including orchestral elements, a rock line-up and often just simple acoustic guitar. Released on Vinyl LP and CD on the Saddle Creek label.
  • CD (LBJ236CD)

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 from 1972 that have never been released.

Alex Clare
Tail Of Lions

Bringing his friend Chris Hargreaves of Submotion Orchestra along for the writing sessions certainly rubbed off for Alex Clare’s third full length. Moving from singer/songwriter plus electronics and into deep cinematic territories. Huge, festival ready tracks to close your eyes, hold that lighter up to.

Repeater

Spiro have so far released eight full length albums, and Repeater is a combination of tracks picked from four of their Real World albums. The records featured on this album are Pole Star, Lightbox, Kaleidophonica and Welcome Joy And Welcome Sorrow, all of which have been credited for their traditional folk sound alongside a minimalist, contemporary and acoustic vibrancy.

Jack Rose
Opium Musick

VHF have just launched a crucial series of reissues of the music of Jack Rose, a major voice in experimental acoustic guitar music, both on his own and as a member of Pelt. 2003’s Opium Musick features Rose holding forth on 12-string and 6-string guitar, as well as a lap guitar. As with all his work, there is a deep engagement with ragtime and blues history at work here. LP reissue.

Red Horse, White Mule

VHF have just launched a crucial series of reissues of the music of Jack Rose, a major voice in experimental acoustic guitar music, both on his own and as a member of Pelt. Red Horse, White Mule is his 2002 debut album as a solo artist. It pairs a series of shorter pieces with a colossally deep raga that fills up a whole side of the vinyl. What a beautiful talent.

Weyes Blood
Front Row Seat To Earth

Front Row Seat To Earth is the new album by Weyes Blood, the solo recording project of Natalie Mering from Jackie O Mutherfucker. The album recalls the the US west coast folk sound of the ‘70s, artists such as Esra Mowhawk. The live band feel is contrasted with a clever use of electronics. The album was produced by Chris Cohen who has played with the likes of Cass McCombs and Ariel Pink as well as releasing a couple of solo albums.

Califone
Roomsound

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. Stomping blues licks and slides, dusty tape saturation, and subtle manipulations that bring a texture to the whole. Sound like Six Organs of Admittance playing quiet, reflective blues.

John Howard
Across The Door Sill

A very much stripped back version of John Howard is present on Across The Door Sill. Layers of vocals and pianos wander through delicately written pop structures as easily as they do the more freeform. Mixing the heart of a folk artist with the intimacy of a lounge performance. Available Vinyl and CD through Occultation.

Daniel Bachman
Daniel Bachman (2016)

Daniel Bachman is a 26 year old guitarist from Virginia. He has been regarded as somewhat of prodigy making waves with his technical and compositional chops for some years now. He has been recording since 2011 and has worked with Ryley Walker. His new self-titled album is most complete work yet showcases his ability as a guitarist, augmenting his acoustic guitar with elements of drone and field recordings.

Aidan Knight
Small Reveal

Small Reveal is the brainchild of Aidan Knight, and is as sparse and songwriterly as you would expect from the Canadian-born indie-rocker. Tinged with folk and an experimental approach, the record is wistfully escapist and becomes a cinematic, immediate and evocative expedition across unfathomable landscapes.

Douglas Dare
Aforger

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. This is Dare's second album and like many records comes out of what sounds like a horrible relationship breakdown. Dare sings about identity and the sort of fakery that goes on when someone plays around behind your back. Dark stuff but therapeutic for him I hope. Couple this with some neat electronics and bleak guitars and we could have an interesting record here.

The Moondoggies
Don't Be a Stranger

To celebrate a full decade of Moondoggies activity, the band are reissuing their debut album Don’t Be A Stranger, through the Hardly Art label. Proper American rocking. This the first time that Don’t Be A Stranger has been released on vinyl, and to make this reissue even more special, five unreleased bonus tracks from the same sessions have been added on. Nice.

Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker
Overnight

Josienne Clarke’s lovely vocal and Ben Walker’s steady acoustic picking: perfect. Add in some lush widescreen orchestration and their mix of gothic folk, chill ballads, bluegrass and lunar odes are all set to mirror our circadian rhythms this Autumn. 'Overnight' will track our days and nights eclectically. LP and CD on Rough Trade.

Lawrence Arabia
Absolute Truth

New Zealand’s Lawrence Arabia hopes to make a breakout with Absolute Truth, reaching for a wider international crowd than his current Kiwi / Oz fanbase. There is a rich detail to the sunny pop sound of this album, as though each musical surface was carefully thought about and polished to a sheen. Out on New Zealand’s legendary Flying Nun label.
  • Vinyl LP (FN569LP)

Luke Roberts
Sunlit Cross

Luke Roberts has some pals in big places and here is joined by the likes of Kurt Vile and the guy from Drive by Truckers on an album of rolling finger picked acoustic folk pop that could appeal to fans of Ryley Walker and early Bon Iver. Earthy and unique Americana to warm you through the winter months.

Mark Lanegan
The Winding Sheet

Mark Lanegan’s first solo album is back on the streets again. The Winding Sheet dates back to 1990, when Lanegan was still immersed in the murky heart of grunge with Screaming Trees. His solo work mixes the dark weight of that music with a true songwriter’s dramatic touch. The Winding Sheet features a guest appearance from Kurt Cobain, and this Sub Pop reissue includes an extra track.
  • Vinyl LP (SP61)

Benoît Pioulard
The Benoît Pioulard Listening Matter

On his sixth release for Kranky Benoît Pioulard weaves delicate candyfloss pop melodies through a hazy wooden shack in the sun setting. Reflective and at peace pop songs that let you just take a minute for yourself. Delicately plucked guitars and satisfyingly found sound-like percussion takes you away from it all.

Itasca
Open To Chance

Kayla Cohen is Itasca is downtempo folk music. Informed by her past life as a drone and noise merchant, the tunes on Open to Chance have a slow and constant bleed, making for a delightfully homogenous listen in the vein of Sibylle Baier's Colour Green. Most importantly, this record affirms Cohen's place as one of modern music's most understated guitarists, her picking patterns so good they're subliminal.

Xylouris White
Black Peak

Dirty Three post-rock snoozer Jim White, who isn't a snooker player, once again joins forces with lute player Giorgos Xylouris in their lazily named supergroup Xylouris White. I'll give them a free pass once more as their music continues to be frenetic, moving at joyful accelerations. They follow up Goat with Black Peak, another record of loosely-tightened drums with compelling rhythms, jaunty lute riffing and trembling vocal ecstasy.

William Tyler
Live at Third Man Records

Instrumental americana wonder-boy William Tyler dazzled us a little with Modern Country, a slab of War On Drugs-inspired tunes dug deep with dad rock melodics. Like most people who play guitar in this world, he has been to Third Man Records, where he performed some songs, and of course they got recorded for this record. It's a fine performance, seeing Tyler transition his original acoustic sound into his newly textured findings.

Conor Oberst
Ruminations

Conor Oberst, aka Mr. Bright Eyes himself, has a new album of solo work. Ruminations was made according to the classic technique of sealing oneself away alone during the winter, and is a sparse affair involving Oberst and no-one else at all. Ruminations comes out on Nonesuch, with a nice poster slipped into the LP edition.

Cost of the Cold / Here and Whole

In anticipation of her new album here are a couple of new tracks from Kentucky based singer songwriter Joan Shelley. This finger pickin' musician plays lovely country-ish tunes with a classic voice that is not all that far away from Tracey Thorn. The music however fits snugly into the American and UK folk tradition.

Giant Sand man Howe Gelb had a rather fantastic experience performing on the same bill as a number of gospel choirs in 2003, and decided to bring a choir into his own solo work on 2006’s ‘Sno Angel Like You. This reissue presents the beautiful, sensitive results alongside the feature-length documentary ‘Sno Angel Winging It, making for a hell of a package. On Fire.

The Baird Sisters
Until You Find Your Green

The Baird Sisters are Laura and Meg Baird, and yes, they are actually sisters. Nevertheless, Until You Find Your Green is their first full-length studio collaboration, despite the fact that both have been producing high-grade work for some time now. The Bairds play intimate deep folk that immediately grabs the attention: this is carefully crafted stuff. Out on Ba Da Bing.

John Southworth
Small Town Water Tower

On Small Town Water Tower, John Southwater has made some subtly strange pop music, with songs that are wistful and quietly grand. This isn’t exactly his previous territory (Small Town Water Tower is his tenth album), but why not do something new eh? Especially when it is put together with such skill as this. Released by the Tin Angel label.
  • CD (TAR068)

Laura Gibson
Empire Builder

Empire Builder is the result of Laura Gibson’s presumably quite upsetting experience of having her apartment building literally explode shortly after uprooting her life from Portland to New York. Tricky times, but they seem to have led to something beautiful: on this record Laura’s beautifully-melodic chamber pop is on top form. On City Slang.

Geraint Jarman doesn’t mess around with any English language bullshit: he has been performing in Welsh for forty years now, and Tawel Yw’r Tymor is some of the most direct Jarman we’ve ever heard. The backing band (and indeed the electricity) has been dispensed with, leaving the beautiful voice fully exposed. CD released by Ankst.

Matt Berry
The Small Hours

Superbly-voiced comic actor and musician Matt Berry has made a new album, The Small Hours. It follows on from previous releases Witchazel, Kill The Wolf and Music For Insomniacs. This time, and for the first time, his band recorded the basic tracks live using a 60-year old hand built Decca desk. Thematically the album seems as though it will be quite heavy - religion, death, loneliness and, on lighter note, the changing seasons. Berry says that the title refers to the quiet moments before dawn when your thoughts seem to be amplified.

Pearls To Swine

Laid-back country folk, produced by Erik Woffard (Okkervil River / M. Ward / Bill Callahan). Recorded in analogue at a studio overlooking the Colorado River Valley, the overall effect is warm and very natural. Thor Harris of Swans provides some surprisingly gentle percussion, lending itself nicely to Aisha Burns's soaring violin.

Indie pop musician Nedelle Torris has paid a lot of dues playing in the backing bands for artists such as Sufjan Stevens and Ariel Pink, but she deserves credit for being a proficient songwriter in her own right; Advice From Paradise attempts to bridge the gap between a type of pop music heard now and then, being both contemporary and traditional at the same time.

Shameless pretend hobo bluesman is back again with a new album, and this one would appear to be a double. Keepin’ The Horse Between Me And The Ground (great advice for riding horses) has Seasick Steve supported by a grizzled band, boogie-grooving through more tales of American-style free-living. Easily done when you raked in a bunch of cash from making up a story about being homeless.

A really nice, delicate release from freak-folk mainstay Devendra Banhart, although I think he might have toned down the ‘freakiness’ by now.

Angel Olsen
My Woman

Angel Olsen has made some really good records that are sorta singer and quite songwriter but equally rock and quite roll, too: Burn Your Fire was a complex and sprawling record at times, jubilantly anthemic at others, and occasionally isolated in its acoustic balladry. 'My Woman' is her third record and it plans to maintain the reverence to reverb and raucousness that went along with the quiet, lo-fi moments.

Mike Kinsella has done a lot of time in the Chicago indie-etc. scene, in bands like Cap’n’Jazz, American Football and Joan of Arc. But his most personal music is made in his solo project Owen (no I don’t know the significance of the name). Much of the Owen music has been lo-fi and acoustic, but The King Of Whys is a fully-fledged big-production record. Out on Wichita.

Emerging out of the delightful North Yorkshire city (yup it has a cathedral) of Ripon, Bille Marten (actual name Isabella Sophie Tweddle) has a voice made out of some kind of silk-like substance and writes moody acoustic songs that tug at any heartstrings you may still have left. This is her much anticipated debut which on initial listen could draw comparisons with early Laura Marling.

King Creosote
Astronaut Meets Appleman

A new sweeping solo record from King Creosote. A lot of the material on Astronaut Meets Appleman is quietly epic, with instrumental contributions from a range of talented players of a range of interesting instruments (e.g. bagpipes, harp, violin) all woven together into a potent whole. Out on Domino.

Dennis Callaci
A Bed of Light

Delightful, rough and ready, quirky, lofi indie pop songs that fans of stuff like Smog will absolutely lap up.  Mostly known for his huge amounts of work in the band Refrigerator, and having gone under monikers even his own press mock him for, A Bed of Light is Dennis Callaci’s first actual solo album.

Warhaus
We Fucked A Flame Into Being

Maarten Devoldere is one of the frontmen in Balthazar, but he is also Warhaus. This project is all about late-night songwriting, in the vein of previous moody artistes like Leonard Cohen. The guitars and synth-sounds of We Fucked A Flame Into Being are a perfect fit with Devoldere’s deep showman’s voice. Out on Play It Again Sam.

David Allred
Woods

David Allred has often worked with American multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick after Allred transcribed one of his songs. Broderick describes Allred’s musical ideas as odd, honest and intriguing. On his new 10” EP, Woods,  he works with Broderick’s sister, Heather Woods Broderick, making a beautiful sound using layered vocal harmonies. Most definitely intriguing.

The Ballad Of JFK – A Musical History Of The John F. Kennedy Assassination (1963-1968)

The Ballad Of JFK - A Musical History Of The John F. Kennedy Assassination is an unusual compilation of unusual music: everything here was recorded in tribute to JFK, and much of it was only released in private pressings. That means super-rare material that is often a little odd. It makes for a great document of cultural history: thanks Iron Mountain Analogue Research!

Cass McCombs
Mangy Love

Cass McCombs is now established as a songwriter of the highest order. Mangy Love is lyrically his darkest record yet, all seen with his uniquely aware and often humorous eye. Musically it’s experimental soul, warped psychedelia, rock, hip-hop and beat poetry that shapes the album's upbeat and immediate sound. Guests include Angel Olsen and Blake Mills. Mangy Love was produced by Rob Schnapf.

Slim Cessna's Auto Club
The Commandments According To Scac

Slim Cessna’s Auto Club really really like the dark gothic underside of American life, and The Commandments According To Scac was apparently written with Flannery O’Connor and William Faulkner in mind. The music is a good match, with a soulful old-timey folk-American feel. Released by Glitterhouse.

Lisa Hannigan
At Swim

Folkie Lisa Hannigan has made two solo records of sparse musings and has previously worked on improving the works of Damien Rice. Her new one, At Swim, has both the lightness and dramatics that characterise her work, and Aaron Dessner respects her sound by producing the record with a thinking space homeliness.

Ryley Walker
Golden Sings That Have Been Sung

I would have happily waited ten years for another Ryley Walker album if it showed even half the brilliance of 'Primrose Green' but here is another one already. Walker is one of the most vital songwriters out there today and early indications of this oddly titled opus show that his lush ornate guitar playing is intact along with a sound that could be linked to fellow Chicago types Tortoise and Jim O' Rourke. The world should be excited.

Francoise Hardy
En Anglais

En Anglais was a rare delight from french singer Francoise Hardy, as she rarely sang in english. One of the leading singers in the yéyé period in France. First released on vinyl 1968 it features Hardy performing covers or reworkings of rock, folk and pop songs. These include songs by Elvis Presley, The Everly Brothers, The Shirelles, and Buddy Holly

Francoise Hardy
Message Personnel

Glamorous French smoothness from Francoise Hardy circa 1973. Message Personnel was produced with Michel Berger, who provided rich, sleek string arrangements that elevate the songs to a high level of cinematic drama. The perfect accompaniment to your coolly nonchalant and highly fashionable French life. Vinyl reissue on Warner France.

Francoise Hardy
Entr'acte

Oozing beauty and cool since the mid ‘60s, Parisian singer, actress and all-round icon Francoise Hardy is somewhat of a cult figure in this country whilst being hugely popular in France. Entr’acte is her 19th album and was originally released in 1974. This gem of a record often gets overlooked in among her huge body of work but its pleasing folk rock stylings and Hardy’s understated, breathy delivery make it well worthwhile.

Wovenhand
Star Treatment

Come burn the barn with Wovenhand and their countrified punk rock. For those not in the know, these folks were sprung from the imagination of David Eugene Edwards, who usually played in 16 Horsepower. One might argue this band had a more blistering pace and allowed Edwards to go a bit harder, with thrashing drums, flailing guitars and a hard rock vocal boom. 'Star Treatment' is a ragged, raucous record and, hey, guess what, Steve Albini's studio recorded it.

A Grave With No Name
Wooden Mask

A Grave With No Name is, obviously, not a cheerful project, but there is a stark beauty to Alexander Shields’ music under the name. Wooden Mask is a set of desolate experimental post-folk, “a meditation on renewal”. Vinyl and cassette editions are available, via the well-named Forged Artifacts label.

Jonny Fritz
Sweet Creep

With Sweet Creep Jonny Fritz takes a bit of a step away from the country formula. Keeping the poignant and heart-warming storytelling but replacing the barnyard/hay-bale/Conway Twitty setting with a more isolated experimental feel, backed up with subtle electronic swirls and hypnotic, rhythm box percussion.

Imaginational Anthem Vol. 8 : The Private Press

Some reissues are of albums that have slid quietly out of print since initial release, but some are like Imaginational Anthem Vol. 8: made up of records that were privately pressed and thus scarcely ‘released’ at all. You have almost certainly never heard of these artists before, but they all turn out to be remarkable acoustic guitar talents. A real treat, on Tompkins Square.

Chelsea Wolfe
Abyss

Chelsea Wolfe uses her fifth album to plumb the depths of the subconscious, via the medium of music that alternates between her intimate, close mic-ed murmurs and crashing heavy rock action. There is a strong sense of purpose in Abyss’ brutal contrasts: Wolfe has made a very good record here. On Sargent House.

Emma Tricca and Jason McNiff, firm folk friends, joined to pen three songs each to record their mini album, ‘Southern Star’. McNiff is a celebrated songwriter and you may know Tricca from her work with Andy Votel’s Finders Keepers family. Themes link New York, European cities in the rain and train travel. 10" EP on Dell'Orso. Adorabile.

Neil Young
Tonight’s The Night

At some point in the ‘90s Neil Young’s 1975 classic Tonight’s The Night was regarded by NME as being one of the most depressing albums ever released. The album is influenced by the grief Neil Young felt at the drug-induced deaths of Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten and roadie Bruce Berry. I’d call it a heartbreaking work of staggering genius.

Deradoorian

Deradoorian has been a key member of some very significant weird-indie groups in the last few years: she is principally one of the most prominent aspects of Dirty Projectors, as well as performing in Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks. On The Expanding Flower Planet however, she crafts her very own musical worlds, each containing many ornate layers.

Trevor Sensor
Starved Nights of Saturday Stars

Trevor Sensor is only a young thing (just 22 years of age), but he’s managed to set himself up early for a good career by sounding like he’s had his share of tough times already. His voice has plenty of gravel and character in it : why, it’s almost unique! Starved Nights of Saturday Stars is his first EP for Jagjaguwar.

Cross The Verge, Serrat’s third album, is out on Loose Music.

Ichi
Maru

ICHI is a Bristol-based, Japanese-born musician who makes a ridiculously dense and rich experimental pop music, that also taps into his new home’s post-punk and dub cultures. Maru's surreal mash of drones, acapella sounds, homemade instruments and samples is incredibly hard to categorise, so you should probably just listen to it.

Regina Spektor
Remember Us To Life

A pop pianist from back when the genre tag anti-folk was still in rotation, Regina Spektor's been at the songwriting game for a long time, making records with the very same winking, critical poignancy that endeared folks to 500 Days of Summer (a film in which her music starred). Her last record proper was What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, which both looked forward to a smootehr and more lush sound (while looking back with a self-cover of "Don't Leave Me"), and she now follows up with Remember Us to Life, a record apparently brought about by a bout of honest-to-god inspiration.

The Devil Makes Three
Redemption & Ruin

The Devil Makes Three call themselves a bluesgrass folk punk band, and for this monster 12 track cover album they’ve looked back at their wide scope of influences, covering Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Willie Nelson, and Tom Waits in their own inimitable dusty red velvet saloon way. Filled with sorrow and sin.

Her singular voice ties together this collection of playful rock and pop and her more experimental interests are kept in check by ridiculously catchy melodies. CD and LP on Frenchkiss.
