Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker
Seedlings All

Seedlings All is the most personal album yet by Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker. The British folk duo’s previous pair of long-players mixed traditional songs, covers and originals, but here for the first time, all tracks are self-penned. The duo are going from strength to strength and this album comes after tour support slot with Richard Thompson. LP and CD on Rough Trade. If you’re quick there’s a limited edition ‘indies only’ LP with a bonus 3-track CD.

Isaac Gracie
Isaac Gracie

Hot new British soft rock prospect Isaac Gracie's self-titled debut album comes out on the tail of a series of well received singles.  On it the young Londoner gets to grips with himself and his anxieties. Virgin EMI have very kindly given us some indies only yellow vinyl copies of this limited to 500 copies.

Lords Of Thyme
The Future of Things Past

Sold out - sorry!

Neil Young + Promise Of The Real
Paradox

If you weren’t excited enough about the fact that you can soon Netflix & chill with the ‘Godfather of Grunge’, he’s got a new album out too. Neil Young & The Promise Of The Real have soundtracked Paradox - the aforementioned Netflix film in which Young stars - and the LP features Neil Young doing plenty of Neil Young-type stuff.

Michael Raven & Joan Mills
Death And The Lady

Death And The Lady by Michael Raven and Joan Mills is a much sought after and rare folk album. It has never, until now, been reissued on vinyl, and upon its original release in 1974, only 250 were made. For Record Store Day, another 500 are being pressed. Fans on Fairport Convention will no doubt love this as it possesses guitar virtuosity and a great female voice.

The Dead Brothers
Angst

Some camp, ghoulish folksiness from Swiss duo The Dead Brothers here. Angst is a sort of cabaret flip of Serge Gainsbourg and Tom Waits via Cab Calloway, Kurt Weill (not Vile) and the Tiger Lillies. It’s good clean fun and would have nailed them down a slot at Secret Garden Party if that festival were still going.

Siobhan Wilson
There Are No Saints

Sold out - sorry!

Son Volt
The Search

The Search was the sixth album by Jay Farrar’s post-Uncle Tupelo band Son Volt. It was originally released in 2007, the second album by the new line up that featured Mark Spencer of fellow country rockers Blood Oranges. Eleven years later and it’s getting some luxurious reissue treatment. Double LP in a gatefold sleeve, pressed on sea foam green vinyl or deluxe CD versions are available to sate your alt. country appetite.

Bob Dylan
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

Sold out - sorry!

Robbie Basho
Live in Forli, Italy 1982

Sold out - sorry!

Trembling Bells
Dungeness

I just can't get over the sleeve. Just look at it. Kind of suits the music Trembling Bells make though. It's shot through with the folk influence of bands who also wore 17th century garb and claimed a kinship with days of yore. I'm thinking Fairport Convention. But Trembling Bells are also very psychedelic. You'd have to be to wear jerkins like that.   

The No Sorrows
The No Sorrows

Sold out - sorry!

Grouper
Ruins

'Ruins' is the newest record by drone folk artist Grouper. Recorded in a house near a lost, deserted village in Portugal, under the usual reclusive conditions that Liz Harris writes music, the record is the closest her project has gotten to capturing actual songs, each performed on a piano and recorded immediately to a 4-track. 'Ruins' finds Harris either performing spectral ballads, fashioned after her ambient leanings, or thrumming on the piano like it's just another part of the natural environment. It's arguably her sparsest record yet -- right down to the incidental recordings of rain and animals chirping -- and the closest the listener will get to hearing Harris' voice upfront.

Jose Gonzalez
Vestiges & Claws

Sold out - sorry!

Alasdair Roberts, Amble Skuse & David McGuiness
What News

Classic Scottish folk singer (he hates that term that's why I put it there) Alasdair Roberts lurches out of his comfort zone on this his twelfth solo album by casting away his guitar and collaborating with Concerto Caledonia director David McGuinness. McGuinness was charged with arranging Roberts songs and he brought in sonologist Amble Skuse to add electronic treatments.

Bert Jansch
A Man I’d Rather Be (Part II)

The Man I’d Rather Be (Part II) is a 4 LP or 4 CD box set documenting the solo work of the legendary and influential guitarist Bert Jansch. The focus is on the late ‘60s and early ‘70s  where Jansch worked from a wider palette, mixing pop, blues and baroque into his folk sound. Bassist Danny Thompson and drummer Terry Cox are the most regular rhythm section used on these recordings and there are guest appearances from Mary Hopkin, Tony Visconti and Dave Mattacks. Many guitarists from Jimmy Page to Neil Young and Johnny Marr to Graham Coxon hold Bert Jansch in high regard.

Courtney Marie Andrews
May Your Kindness Remain


Arizona-based singer/songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews is back with the follow-up to her critically lauded 2017 debut breakthrough ‘Honest’. Written while touring her first record, ‘May Your Kindness Remain’ explores Andrews’ relationships (some lasting, some fleeting) with people she meets on the road, her gospel-soaked folk perfectly mirroring the tenderness of her writing.

Tom Waits
Blue Valentine

This 1978 release is a real mixed bag that displays the contrasting extremes of Waits’ muse at the time. The album is bookended by a widescreen orchestral version of Bernstein’s standard Somewhere, and the smoky jazz guitar of the understated title track. In between there’s the tragicomic Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis and the raucous r’n’b of Whistlin' Past the Graveyard. Kentucky Avenue is the obligatory killer tearjerker.

Tom Waits
Foreign Affairs

1977’s Foreign Affairs is Tom Waits at his most big budget and nostalgically cinematic. The filmic feel is exemplified by the forties style epic Potter’s Field and Bette Midler duet I Never Talk to Strangers. It's heavily string and brass laden when the singer’s not mostly alone at the piano, as on standout Burma Shave. The furthest Waits would go in this direction, though Barber Shop hints at his ramshackle, bellowing future.

Tom Waits
Heartattack And Vine

Waits’ sixth album was his last non-soundtrack work before his reinvention on Swordfishtombones, but it’s already a shade less polished than his previous few outings.  Standouts include the raw blues of the title track, later adopted by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and future Springsteen hit Jersey Girl. The ballads are particularly devastating - the lover’s reluctant abscondment on Ruby’s Arms and On the Nickel's lament for the destitute.

Various
The Ballad Of Shirley Collins

The documentary The Ballad of Shirley Collins traces the long and eventful life of our era’s foremost singer of traditional English folk song. The film captures sessions for her album Lodestar, her first after decades of tragic silence. It also recalls her 1959 song-collecting trip to the US with Alan Lomax, some of the fruits of which are included on this soundtrack. Also here is music from collaborators Michael J York and Ossian Brown, an unearthed home recording of Shirley’s late sister Dolly, and a previously unreleased 1958 BBC session. Available on vinyl, or on CD with a DVD of the film itself.

Michael Chapman
LIVE VPRO 1971

This Dutch radio recording offers a rare chance to hear the Yorkshire folkie onstage in the early years of his career. Accompanied only by bassist Rick Kemp, the singer / guitarist performs loose and laid-back takes on tracks from his then-current albums on the Harvest label. Both CD and red vinyl versions include a download of the entire rambling 90-minute set.

Us and Them
From The Corner Of My Eye

Us and Them, over and over again. That’s where the LCD Soundsystem comparison ends, mind. The latest single from the Swedish dream-folk duo is a stately, vaguely psychedelic procession of guitars, strings, harmonies and lightly-pattering drums. 'From The Corner Of My Eye' brings to mind Gillian Welch and Vashti Bunyan.

Beautify Junkyards
The Beast Shouted Love

Sold out - sorry!

Martha Ffion
Sunday Best

Warm bit of jangly folk pop from Martha Ffion. She has a wonderful ear for melody, and everything thing she does is so charming that it's impossible to dislike. Sunday Best is for fans of the likes of Laura Marling, and The Magnetic Fields, and those who just want to listen to something pleasant and good.

Elle Mary & The Bad Men
Constant Unfailing Night

Constant Unfailing Night by Elle Mary and The Bad Men uses folk-noir and a starting point, just dealing with the necessary elements of sound and space. She believes that this way her lyrics will be at the forefront on the album and more open to interpretation. Elle Mary is influenced by artists such as Bill Callahan, Low and Julie Doiron who, as Elle Mary is aiming to do, make the most out of seemingly not doing much. If you like Sharon Van Etten and Jenny Hval as well as the aforementioned artists, you should probably check this out.

Richard Dawson
Peasant

The new album from Richard Dawson is a notable new epic from the Tyneside master, featuring more guest musicians than ever before. Peasant’s songs are all set in the pre-medieval north-east, with each title naming a figure: ‘Weaver’, ‘Herald’, ‘Beggar’. It’s the most fully-fledged work yet by Dawson, and it's out on Weird World.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
Tearing At The Seams

Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats made more than just ripples in the water with their self-titled debut, so it’s likely that one or two folk are looking forward to its follow-up. Tearing At The Seams should supply what they’re looking for, and it’s only on bloody Stax! White vinyl double LP or Deluxe CD with 20 page booklet and two extra tracks.

Mark Lanegan Band
Still Life With Roses - Gargoyle Remixes

Sold out - sorry!

Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band
Adios Senor Pussycat

One of the UK's most underrated yet much loved amongst those in the know songwriters Michael Head has a storied history in bands like the Pale Fountains, Shack and the remarkable Michael Head and the Strands. This is his first new material in over 11 years and it will be a joy to hear his music again. It's poetic and romantic and draws comparisons to Love, the La's and Nick Drake but with a ragged, workingman edge that ensures what he lacks in national treasure status is made up for with an enthusiastic cult following. 

Neko Case

Sold out - sorry!

Dean McPhee
Son Of The Black Peace

Sold out - sorry!

Jono McCleery
Seeds Of A Dandelion

We've heard this one in the office quite a bit, and it has become a personal favourite of mine. Jono McCleery's voice is truly brilliant. He sings with so much soul and genuine passion. It's raw and it's beautiful. Available on vinyl LP and CD and both have been released on Counter Records. Trust me. It's a good 'un.

The Gentle Good
Y Gwyfyn

Welsh folkies The Gentle Good are proud of their Welshness and rightly so. The trio are made up of Jack Egglestone on drums, Callum Duggan on bass and singer Georgia Ruth. Y Gwyfyn is an EP specially released for 2018’s Welsh Language Music Day. The EP is a combination of brand new material and outtakes from the sessions that produced their Welsh Music Prize winning album Ruins/Adfeilion. The EP features beautiful string arrangements by Cardiff-based composer, Seb Goldfinch which are performed by the Mavron Quartet. Fans of Alasdair Roberts might want to give this a go.

The Hanging Stars
Songs For Somewhere Else

The Hanging Stars are from grim old London but make the sort of sun dappled 60's and '70s influenced psychedelic folk and cosmic country that you usually find emanating from the other side of the atlantic. Here they follow up their much loved debut 'Over the Silvery Lake' with another batch of timeless, hazi Americana (but from England).    

Micah P. Hinson And The Opera Circuit

Alela Diane
Cusp

Cusp is The 5th solo album by singer/songwriter Alela Diane and follows on from her 2013 album, About Farewell, written and recorded after her marriage to musical partner Tom Bevitori ended. Accidentally inspired by breaking a thumbnail and writing on the piano instead of finger picking her way on the guitar, Diane did a ‘Justin Vernon’ and shut herself away in a snow-covered cabin to write the album. Thematically it  concentrates on Motherhood, falling in love with your child, rather than  the lost love of its predecessor.

S. Carey
Hundred Acres

S. Carey presents his third album to date, in the form of Hundred Acres. In the past, the jazz-trained Carey has dabbled with minimalism in his music, but Hundred Acres finds him fully embracing the pastoral folk beauty of his sound. This is a lush, thoughtful listen, full of images of nature. CD and vinyl editions on Jagjaguwar.

Roy Harper
Stormcock

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. Stormcock is a wonderful album with some particularly epic long tracks. The audio has been remastered, and is presented alongside lyrics and liner notes.

Brigid Mae Power
The Two Worlds

Irish artist Birgid Mae Power follows up her 2016 self-titled LP with The Two Worlds. Her expressive voice, gently warbling with more than a little Americana, could as well be likened to Grace Slick as to Elizabeth Fraser, although neither capture her entirely. On the excellent lead single ‘Don’t Shut Me Up (Politely)’ she sounds weary, indignant and assertive against misogynistic conceit, singing over droning guitar and a dusty, rumbling drum section.

O.D. Davey
Catgut Tape

Available on 12” LP or CD. O.D. Davey’s debut album Catgut Tape is made up of high romanticised electronic folk, having already been compared to the stripped back stylings of Thom Yorke there’s a definite taste of a younger version of a contemporary David Sylvain to his voice and the sparseness to the production.

Nick Drake
Made To Love Magic

Sold out - sorry!

Lucy Dacus
No Burden

Matador introduce Lucy Dacus, whose record No Burden gets a physical pressing and celebratory launch. Having played with artists such as Julien Baker and Car Seat Headrest, you should be able to point to her sound as one that's heartfelt and brazen, building climaxes on personal epiphanies. These songs are tactile with bristling guitars and messily frank lyricism. 

Susanna
