Matt Elliott
The Calm Before

Matt Elliott launched his career with ferocious albums of experimental drum and bass under his The Third Eye Foundation alias, but on his subsequent solo work he’s focused that energy on inventive folk and acoustic music. The Calm Before continues this approach with six pieces of delicate ...view item »

Karl Blau

Tanya Donelly
Swan Song Series

Tanya Donelly founded Throwing Muses. And also The Breeders. And also Belly. So she certainly knows what she is doing when it comes to left-of-the-mainstream songwriting. Most of the contents of Swan Song Series were previously released as digital EPs: now they are gath...view item »

William Tyler
Modern Country

William Tyler’s music actually is a kind of Modern Country: although his songs are instrumental, and thus not about your wife leaving you, they feel essentially of contemporary rural America. His backing band is fantastic here, including Glenn Kotch...view item »

Whitney
Light Upon The Lake

Light Upon The Lake is the soulful debut from Whitney, who make a rich and bluesy pop music. The sweet vocals are the heart of the band's gorgeous and distinctively American, West Coast troubadour sound. The laidback guitar and harmonies hide the complex arrangements and stunning instrumentation. ...view item »

Woods
City Sun Eater In The River of Light

City Sun Eater In The River of Light is the ninth LP by Woods, the American alt-folk-rock troupe with a psychedelic, even jazzy approach to their sound. As only their second recording made in a ‘proper’ studio, the sound is crisp and clear, but not lacking in the oddness either. The album is available on wha...view item »

Neil Young & Promise of the Real
Earth

Neil Young is no stranger to the live album having released 7 of them previously. On Earth, he is backed by Promise of the Real, a band fronted by Willie Nelson’s sons, Lukas and Micha. The songs are plucked from classic albums Ragged Glory (1990) and After The Gold R...view item »

Lou Rhodes
theyesandeye

Listening to Lou Rhodes’ solo work (she also makes up half of Lamb) immediately pulls the listener right back to the 1970’s, living in a treehouse somewhere during a long, attractive summer. She has captured some essential essence of that era’s classic folk-rock: partly voice, partly songwritin...view item »

Channel D
Unravelling

Channel D is Nick de Grunwald, writing and singing songs of doomy fear from within lo-fi structures of electronics and guitars. Plenty of grit to be enjoyed on Unravelling, whether from Grunwald’s dramatic vocals or from the punch of a drum machine. CD or heavyweight silver vinyl ...view item »

Ben Seretan
Bowl Of Plums

After his self-titled debut turned into something of a sleeper-cult hit record, Ben Seretan is back with more lush open-eyed pop songs. Embracing sound, music and the world in general, Bowl of Plums is about the richness you can find by accident if you just keep your eyes open. Think Sufjan Stevens and&...view item »

L.A. Salami
The City Nowadays

From the name, L.A. Salami sounds like a Californian punk band: in fact, he’s a UK ‘postmodern blues and urban folk’ musician. Ahead of his forthcoming debut full-length album he releases The City Nowadays, a big statement of a single with confessional / political lyrics and large brass-powered ch...view item »

Moon Bros.
These Stars

Chicago has always been a great city for improvisers, and this project, led by Matt Schneider, takes full advantage of that fact. On These Stars, Moon Bros. is Schneider plus members of Iron & Wine, Tortoise and Cairo Gang, with the...view item »

Bess Atwell
Hold Your Mind

Bess Atwell is well known around the folk circuits of Soho and Brighton, but her inspiration is drawn from the hazy beauty of the South Downs where she resides. She delivers earnest declarations with a voice like a mountain stream, much too deep for her 21 years. Produced by Michael Smith from 12 Dirty Bullets....view item »

Seasick Steve
Dog House Music

Steve's raw and honest delivery is not the sound you'd expect to find being played at a nice club, but rather a dive bar alongside the swamp or busking on a dirty street. I wouldn't want it any other way. There are a few stories and humour in these songs but overall I was impressed by this joker’s serious songwriting, singing and playing. ...view item »

Seasick Steve & The Level Blues
Cheap

This is the very first album from everyone’s favourite (presumably-former?) hobo bluesman Seasick Steve, recorded in 2004 with a pair of Scandinavians (The Level Devils). Cheap sounds cheap, but it's also full of h...view item »

Rusalnaia
Rusalnaia

Rusalnaia is the transatlantic collaboration of 2 highly singular folk musicians: Philadelphia, USA’s Gillian Chadwick and England’s Sharron Kraus, who did such good work with Robert Plant a while ago. Their 2007 debut, never before released on vinyl, sounds strange ...view item »

Love & Hate

Conner Youngblood
The Generation of Lift

Singer-songwriter Conner Youngblood takes a lot of inspiration from Sufjan Stevens, having apparently nailed the crucial Sufjan trick of surrounding simple, beautiful melodic songcraft with ornate and intriguing instrumentation. He pulls it off pretty well on The Generation Of Lift, his...view item »

Dwight Yoakam
Tomorrow's Gonna Be Another Day

Since when have we sold Dwight Yoakam records? Since Jack White told us we had to seemingly. Here is the legendary honky tonk country singer as produced by Jack White bashing out a couple of spritely covers namely 'Tomorrow's Gonna Be Another Day' (made famous by the Monkees) and 'High on the Mo...view item »

Rob Mazurek & Emmett Kelly
Alien Flower Sutra

Rob Mazurek tends to be excellent, whether he is free improvising, composing pieces or organising other musicians. He does a bit of all three on Alien Flower Sutra, a collaborative album with Emmett Kelly of The Cairo Gang: Mazurek gave some of his compositions to Sao P...view item »

Johnny Cash
The Essential Johnny Cash

Say no more: it’s The Essential Johnny Cash. Cash is probably the country artist with the widest crossover appeal, and this double LP compilation shows off why. Early stuff, late stuff, prison stuff and live stuff is all included, as well as duets with June Carter Cash and Bob Dylan...view item »

The Driftwood Manor
For The Moon

The Driftwood Manor are Irish, and play Irish folk, but there is a little more to their music than that. The deep traditions of their country are cut with rock attitudes, traditions from other parts of the globe, and even a few dashes of electronics. The old style, but done in a slightly new style. Fourth album For The Moon...view item »

M. Craft
Blood Moon

M. Craft plans his music in a lonely desert cabin: his sound is very much a personal response to this beloved isolation. Bloodmoon began as several hours of piano improvisations, which were then cut down and pressed into the format of proper songs, with Craft’s vocals, percussion from Seb ...view item »

The Paperhead
Africa (Live)

A part of the Third Man Live series from Jack White’s Third Man Records we have a live 7” of the song “Africa” by The Paperhead which is backed with an unreleased track titled “Little Kid Blues”. This is some heavy blues with some banging drum...view item »

Khun Narin
II

Khun Narin is a Thai musician who received a bit of Western attention thanks to Youtube. With his Electric Phin Band, he plays a fairly excellent form of psychedelia, with long, spaced-out jams that centre on the phin, a kind of lute. II contains original tunes in addition to a few covers of Thai pop so...view item »

Samara Lubelski
The Gilded Raid

Samara Lubelski shines in all sorts of genres, from free-improvised sound exploration to thick, heady drones. Here on The Gilded Raid, she plays like a 70’s folk-rock songwriter extraordinaire, only with more out-there production: the songs here are sheathed in radiant sonic magic. Great stuff from Lubelsk...view item »

Michele Stodart
Pieces

Scout Niblett
The Calcination of Scout Niblett

My friend Charlotte named her dog after Scout Niblett, and believe it or not, Scout Nibbler is probably one of the loveliest canines out there, proper daft-as-a-brush but with some rather intriguing human-like traits. It's nice to se the lady herself returning to the fray with a new album, 'The Calcination of.....', especially as she is one of the ...view item »

Peter J Smyth
Black Smoke

Peter J. Smyth has probably already transported you and your third eye into cosmic psych-realms in the past as part or Mugstar, but this solo album takes a rather different tack. Black Smoke relies on acoustic, not electric guitars, and clean finger-picking rather than distorted riffing. What a powerful...view item »

Darren Hayman
Thankful Villages Vol. 1

Darren Hayman (formerly of Hefner), themed this release (the first in a series of 3, we are told) around visits to English villages: specifically, the ones who lost no soldiers during World War 1.

The Tango Saloon
Shadows & Fog

With a name and logo like these guys have I was expecting some kind of punk rocky Americana gubbins on this CD here but actually what my ears are experiencing as I write this is more of a dignified, post-rocky take on Ennio Morric...view item »

Sir Richard Bishop
The Freak Of Araby

The Freak of Araby is the new guitar action from Sun City Girls virtuoso Sir Richard Bishop. Any album that makes me want to do foreign dancing is alright by me and all I can think about at the moment is getting up and doing some sort of mental tango-y flamencoizing all over the office, maybe wearing some tassles on my nips and wielding a sexual ey...view item »

Ohioan
Empty / Every Mt

If you like the rich musical traditions of both the Appalachian mountains and the North African deserts, you’ll fall absolutely madly in love with the music of Ohioan, who takes in aspects of both and makes something new.

Jenks Miller & Rose Cross NC
Blues From WHAT

Freewheeling psychedelic travellin' man Jenks Miller contributes to the wonderfully confused guitar sounds of Three Lobed Records with the maybe a little aggressively titled 'Blues From WHAT'.

Robert Wyatt
Comicopera

I've heard bits of Robert Wyatt material over the years but I'm no expert. I do know that he's somewhat of a legendary singer songwriter that was robbed of the Mercury music prize by some cheeky monkey. So here we have his latest opus 'Comic Opera'.What I get from his music is that he's at peace when he's creating it. It just comes straight from hi...view item »

Max Jury
Max Jury

Max Jury is a singer/songwriter from Des Moines, Iowa. He is only 23 but his classic piano-led ballads on his eponymous debut that fuse country, soul and gospel would seem to come from someone a little longer in the tooth.

Glenn Jones
My Garden State

This album is acoustic guitar worship at its best. Through his inventive use of alternative tunings and partial capos, Glenn breathes new life into the traditional folk instrument. Jones is a student of Fahey, but brings the raga drone zones reflecting his work as the guitarist of Cul Du Sac. This is the perfect album for a happy summer -- wheth...view item »

Young Moon
Colt

This new music from Young Moon looked at one point like it might never come into being, after the relationship the initial 2012 debut was rooted in fell apart.
