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...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.

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 »

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.

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 land...view item »

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 behi...view item »

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.

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. ...view item »

Carla Bozulich
Evangelista

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. The two tracks bearing the title like the album and later the group "Evangelista I" and Evangelista II" are such wonderful creatures, they bite ...view item »

Josephine Foster & The Victor Herrero Band
Anda Jaleo

After the Spanish civil war that fascist twat Franco made life pretty uncomfortable for many, many people. And like the oppressive, nazi shit he was, he, like Hitler, banned any art, cinema, books & music he didn't particularly approve of. Which was probably a great deal as these strutting sociopathic gimps always have pretty narrow taste in...view item »

Itasca
Open To Chance

Band of Horses
Mirage Rock

I'll confess I'm not a die-hard fan, but I have enjoyed everything this band has released, and I don't hear this as being some great departure or step backwards. These guys aren't reinventing the wheel. But they write great 70's 'Cali' type folky inspired tunes. Great melodies, beautiful vocals, and a really solid band. I guess my expectations a...view item »

Bob Dylan
Pure Dylan

Pure Dylan is another Bob Dylan compilation, except that this one draws focus away from the hits and onto some lesser-heard gems from the legend’s voluminous back catalogue.

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.

Joan Shelley
Cost of the Cold / Here and Whole

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.

Laura Gibson
Empire Builder

Geraint Jarman
Tawel Yw'r Tymor (Quiet Is The Season)

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.

Pearls To Swine

Laid-back country folk, produced by Erik Woffard (Okkervil River / M. Ward / Bill Callahan).

Keepin’ The Horse Between Me And The Ground

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.

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...view item »

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.

Pigeonheart

DM Stith presents his first solo record in 7 years: a carefully-brewed record of songs for voice and electronics.
