Advance Base
Nephew In The Wild

Advance Base has spent the three years since his last record contributing to the works of Sun Kil Moon and Serengeti, but now the time is right for a proper new album. Nephew In The Wild is an American record, full of old-time tales put to a slightly lethargic indie-rock tune. Released ...view item »

Francoise Hardy
Mon Amie La Rose

The legendary Francoise Hardy is pretty much the sonic epitome of 1960’s French cool, and Mon Amie La Rose is her 1964 album: the year she became a major player. Sleek and beautiful recordings full of period flair, fully remastered from the original mono tapes. Reissue on Light In The Attic ...view item »

James Blackshaw
Apologia

Modern 12-string guitar master James Blackshaw returns with some old recordings on a limited vinyl release. Apologia marks a time when Blackshaw was still working with a 6-string in less-than salubrious recording environments. The resulting material makes for a raw and charming contrast to the fleshed out soundw...view item »

Martin Courtney
Many Moons

Martin Courtney is the frontman of indie dudes Real Estate, but for Many Moons he has stepped aside to do some solo work. The songs he performs here are a little more inward-looking, and are produced with a slightly psychedelic haze: very pleasing. Additional parts by James Taveniere of...view item »

Richard Hawley
Heart Of Oak

Everyone’s favourite Sheffield rock-songcrafter Richard Hawley has a new album forthcoming, titled Hollow Meadows. To preview it, we have this single, Heart Of Oak, which has the poetic croon and the stylish guitar you’d expect from Hawley. The B-side is exclusive to this 7” t...view item »

Anneli Drecker
Rocks & Straws

Anneli Drecker (Bel Canto, Røyksopp) began her prolific music career in the 80s, age 17, when she left her Norwegian hometown of Tromsø with Bel Canto band members Geir Jenssen (aka Biosphere) and Nils Johansen. Following a host of high profile collaborations and huge successes in the indie, electro pop scene, Drecker returns to he...view item »

Son Volt
Trace

If Wilco was Jeff Tweedy’s response to the break-up of Uncle Tupelo, bandmate Jay Farrar’s was to form Son Volt. Trace was the first album under the name, and it is something of a landmark of alt-country. It is reissued here as a deluxe edit...view item »

Meg Baird
Don't Weigh Down The Light

Meg Baird’s music is compellingly subtle, like an eerie breeze rustling into the room. After a ton of collaborative work (recent years have involved the likes of Will Oldham, Sharon Van Etten, and her own bands Esper and Heron Oblivion), Don’t We...view item »

Pixx
Fall In EP

This is the very first release from Pixx, a new artist from the countryside that borders London’s sprawl. She is both a soulful singer-songwriter and a canny electronic producer, and the Fall In EP shows that she can merge those two practices together very well indeed. She’ll go far. Debut 12” record o...view item »

Townes Van Zandt
Flyin' Shoes

Townes Van Zandt has always been deeply respected by those in the know about American songwriters, and Flyin’ Shoes, his debut album from way back in 1978, makes clear why. Even at this earliest stage his songs are fully formed: this includes some of his career-long highlights. Blue vinyl reissue in a replica slee...view item »

Francoise Hardy
L'Amitie

The legendary Francoise Hardy is the sonic epitome of 1960’s French cool, and L’amitie dates from 1965, by which time she was fully established. Just implausibly sleek and beautiful. Remastered from the original mono tapes and reissued CD and 180g LP on Light In The Attic and Future Days Recordings....view item »

Dave Heumann
Here In The Deep

Dave Heumann branches out from the band we all know him from, Arboretum, to release a solo record. Here In The Deep is a warm and lovely folk-rock album in the rich tradition of long-haired US troubadours. Heumann receives assistance from members of Lower Dens and ...view item »

Olga Bell
Incitation

Olga Bell has a knack for detail: some of the tracks on new mini-album Incitation are stripped back to the minimum of elements: clipped beats and distant bass backdrops. Bell’s excellent voice is always present though, sounding intimate and close in the midst of these wide, sparse soundscapes. On ...view item »

Trader Horne
Morning Way

Morning Way, the only album ever made by Trader Horne, is considered a major (and majorly unappreciated) example of 1970’s British psychedelic folk. First of all, just look at that cover art! The music is similarly colourful, varied, and wonderfully odd. Reissued by Earth Recordings on CD or red coloured vinyl....view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Ease Down The Road

Slammed in between "I See a Darkness" and "Master and Everyone" (both very high on most people's list of BPB albums) comes this, a grower/hit and miss. At its best it can be breathtaking, in a way that only Will Oldham can, simultaneously sparse, dark, romantic, cryptic yet full of longing/menace. The songs "Careless Love" and "After I Made Love...view item »

Matt Berry & The Maypoles
Matt Berry & The Maypoles Live

The fact that actor / man-with-a-remarkable-voice Matt Berry is releasing albums and touring with his band The Maypoles may come as a surprise to some, but it shouldn’t really, as Berry has been making music for years. This live recording captures an on-form set of their prog-folk, and com...view item »

Julia Holter
Have You In My Wilderness

‘Have You In My Wilderness’ is a collection of dreamy, atmospheric, intimate ballads textured with the imagery inspired by various literary references, exploring familiar themes such as love and human relationships in a way that is enigmatic and slightly unnerving. The record seems to be drawn from a more personal source than her fir...view item »

Shirley Collins
The Bonny Cuckoo

Fledg’ling Records series of Shirley Collins reissues continues with The Bonny Cuckoo 7” EP. The recordings were captured by Alan Lomax in London in October 1957. The EP contains two versions of Bonny Cuckoo and Bonny Labouring Boy. One version of each is acapella and one v...view item »

Korey Dane
Youngblood

Korey Dane apparently wrote this brace of songs while hitchin’ around the good old US of A, and the consequent record, Youngblood, is thus filled with down-home American stories of hitting the road. Dane’s songwriting shows that he obviously had a great time, and has fixed himself up with so...view item »

Andrew Kidman
Litmus Original Soundtrack / Glass Love

Andrew Kidman is both filmmaker and musician, and this luscious box-set contains the soundtracks to two of his avant-surf films, Litmus and Glass. Kidman is represented under his own name and with his band The Val Dusty Experiment, with a few other artists like Galaxie ...view item »

Michael Yonkers
Grimwood

Reissue of Michael Yonkers debut record, first released in 1973 (and recorded in 1969). Grimwood sounds like a classic folk record from that period, but there is a certain oddity to it as well. Yonkers’ vocals waver with an uncertain vibrato, and his songs are an intimate direct line to his mind. ...view item »

MV & EE
Alpine Frequency

Alpine Frequency by MV & EE has been likened to a pair of Neil Young’s patched-up jeans, suggesting that, unlike their previous work, it is a collage of sound. A patchwork quilt of sounds brought together to make a sprawling double LP. They mix psychedelia, appalachian folk and aspects of indi...view item »

The City
Now That Everything's Been Said

A masterpiece of 60s rock, Now That Everything’s Been Said has been waiting for a vinyl reissue for far too long. The City, songwriter Carole King’s band, is brimming with optimistic, polyphonic and rebellious energy. A great opportunity to dig up your mum's wide jeans and the shad...view item »

Kurt Vile
b’lieve i'm goin down…

b’lieve i’m goin down… is album number six from troubadour Kurt Vile. What he has for us is a rich new collection of twelve songs, a kind of country-indie-rock that Vile is obviously extremely comfortable making. CD and 2LP editions, and also available as a triple-LP with six extra tr...view item »

Ed Askew
Ask The Unicorn

Cult favourite of weird deep-folk, Ask The Unicorn by Ed Askew has, for a very long time, been utterly out of print. This reissue rights that wrong at last, with Askew’s keening voice and unusual Martin tiple instrument fully remastered for maximum clarity. Reissued to CD and white vinyl by Tin An...view item »

Ratatosk
Detachment

Ratatosk makes intimate folk music that sits in a haze: sometimes, the haze takes over the songs, drawing them out into the atmosphere. Detachment is served as a hand-assembled package that includes the CDr, a download code for a whole extra 6 track EP, and a flurry of beautiful bonuses including a ‘boat fact card...view item »

Jaye Bartell
Loyalty

Jaye Bartell is a singer/songwriter and poet who originates from Massachusetts. A transient figure, he began work on his new album, Loyalty after moving to Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

This Record Belongs To ___

This Record Belongs To _____ is a children’s record for parents who think it extremely important that their young ones start appreciating vinyl as soon as possible (no surprise then, that Jack White’s Third Man Records is behind it). However, the tracklisting, including Carole King, ...view item »

Jerusalem In My Heart
If He Dies, If If If If If If

Radwan Ghazi Moumneh has had a long relationship with Constellation, Montreal's banner-label for post-rock and any experimental music that grows from its roots. He's produced records for post-punkers Ought and avant-jazz artist Matana Roberts, made albums with folk-warper Eric Chenaux...view item »

Peter Buck
I Am Back To Blow Your Mind Once Again

On the back sleeve are several photos of the former R.E.M man and his buddies in the studio, all grey hair and black suited just late middle aged guys having some fun. And that pretty much sums up Buck’s post R.E.M output. He’s not taking it all that seriously. Its absolute no wonder that Buck was never ...view item »

Bert Jansch
It Don't Bother Me

The Transatlantic Records section of Bert Jansch’s peerless back catalogue is being reissued by Sanctuary. It Don’t Bother Me followed hot on the heels of his debut, and consequently finds the singer quickly adapting to new circumstances. Can’t fault that rich voice and that delicately picked guitar. R...view item »

Bert Jansch
Jack Orion

The Transatlantic Records section of Bert Jansch’s peerless back catalogue is being reissued by Sanctuary. Jack Orion dates from 1966, and finds Jansch really coming into his own as both an interpreter of traditional numbers and as a songwriter. Also featuring John Renbourn and ...view item »

James Elkington & Nathan Salsburg
Ambsace

A beautifully augmented duet from James Elkington and Nathan Salsburg. Ambsace reinvigorates Americana with intricate, delicate fingerpicking that’s as technically impressive as it is harmonious.

Charlene Soraia is the latest Brit School singer-songwriter to step up to the pop plate.

This Is The Kit
Wriggle Out The Restless

This Is The Kit are rising evermore, having released a cracking record of folk mythos in Moonshine Freeze. Back in 2010 they made this record called Wriggle Out the Restless which showed signs of their tender experiments, using banjos and horns to create a quietly earth-shattering fanfare. W...view item »

John Hulburt
Opus III

John Hulbert’s Opus III is a remarkable work of solo acoustic guitar, originally released in 1972 as a private pressing. Naturally it attracted little to no attention, but it’s been picked up since, and this reissue on Tompkins Square gives everyone a chance to inhabit these lively, detailed instrumentals....view item »

Fountainsun
Music Today

Daniel Higgs and Fumie Ishii are Fountainsun and Music Today is their debut album.

Corb Lund
Things That Can't Be Undone

Corb Lund is quite possibly the Canada’s biggest country musician, and has the distinction of being raised on his family’s ranch, making him more or less an actual cowboy.

Blitzen Trapper
All Across This Land

Over the years Blitzen Trapper have incorporated just about every kind of guitar based music into their sound from indie-folk, alt. country, alt. rock and psychedelia.

Willis Earl Beal
Noctunes

Willis Earl Beal has been out of view for over two years: turns out he was busy prepping Noctunes, his sweeping new LP. The feel of this music occurs to me as space-soul: not space in George Clintonesque way, but in the sense that it feels like Beal’s intense vocals feel like they...view item »

Phaedra
Blackwinged Night

Phaedra is the solo project of one Ingvlid Langgård, a fine art graduate who brings a rich compositional talent as well as a strong visual art practice. On Blackwinged Night, the second album of a proposed trilogy, classical instruments and synthesised rhythms support dramatic, performative vocals...view item »

Andrew Kidman
Glass Love

Andrew Kidman is both filmmaker and musician, and this release contains his self-composed soundtrack to his 2006 film Glass. Kidman apparently made the music first and then let the film (which centers around surfing) follow the sound, which is an admirable approach indeed. LP release on Anthology Record...view item »

Lou Barlow
Brace The Wave

New Lou Barlow album! Brace The Wave is the third album Lou Barlow has recorded under his own name. It’s his first since Goodnight Unknown in 2009. Barlow was a key figure in the alternative Boston, Massachusetts music scene in the late ‘80s and ‘90s firstly with Dinos...view item »

Diane Coffee
Everybody's A Good Dog

Shaun Fleming, from Foxygen, is also known as Diana Coffee. His/her new album is recorded in a proper studio. Fans would know that’s special, because that means that Everybody’s a Good Dog is not hampered by instrumental limitations. The result is a bombastic, joyous, soulful rock record with moody lyrics....view item »

Dan Wilson
All Love Is Blind

The debut solo album from The Cubicle frontman Dan Wilson looks backwards to the ballads of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and Gordon Lightfoot, infusing them with a Liverpudlian lilt. All Love Is Blind is richly produced and infused with a roadworn melancholy that’s drenched in a typical kind of loneliness. Out on CD f...view item »

Elliot Moss
Highspeeds

A rolling stone gathers no moss, but Elliot Moss, with his slow and deep electronic music, is more of a rumbler. His voice cuts through clever instrumentation, with a subtle jazz influences drawing you in further. Highspeeds is the 21-year-old’s debut album, and invites compa...view item »

Briana Marela
All Around Us

Jagjaguwar presents the second album of Briana Marela, entitled All Around Us.

The LP release reflects this with its own swirly design....view item »

Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
What The Brothers Sang

Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie Prince Billy sound quite beautiful singing together. This album is incredibly well executed and there’s clearly a love for the Everly Brothers songs they’ve chosen to cover. “Breakdown” which opens the album starts softly with McCarthy on lead vocal. The song swells into a great chorus with the pa...view item »

Beth Orton
Daybreaker

High time for some reissues of Beth Orton albums don’t you think? The Rhino label think so, and thus they have pressed to (180g) vinyl this album, along with Comfort of Strangers. Daybreaker scored into the Top Ten when it was first released in 2002, and it finds Orton in a lounging folkt...view item »

Comfort Of Strangers

Jock Scot
My Personal Culloden

Certified weirdo, rock poet, and recent British Sea Power collaborator Jock Scot made My Personal Culloden in 1997, when it was first released on Postcard Records.

Grant Hart
Ecce Homo

Ecce Homo is an acoustic live album by Grant Hart. It was recorded in Seattle in 1994.

Terry de Castro
You Can’t Separate Light

Zachary Cale
Duskland

A sad man with a guitar continues to channel his inner self-serious balladeer with tunes shot through the lens of late (but good) era Bob Dylan and the constancy of Nick Cave's spidery, touching songs. This guy's name is actually Zachary Cale and Duskland ...view item »

Beirut
The Flying Club Cup

Beirut Beirut Beirut eh. Where on earth do you start. I guess this is one of the years 'important' releases after the last album blew everyones collective socks off and ended up in loads of end of years polls. Possibly the biggest acolation awarded to the album was in fact the Norman Records album of the year which wasn't something given lightly. O...view item »

Samantha Crain
Under Branch & Thorn & Tree

Samantha Crain sings and songwrites a music that feels firmly grounded in a pastoral landscape: this could indeed have been played Under Branch & Thorn & Tree.

Monk Parker
How The Spark Loves The Tinder

Here we have the debut solo album of Monk Parker, although it has quite a few musicians on it for a solo album (more than thirty). How The Spark Loves The Tinder is one of those indie-ish americana records, Parker's wearied vocals providing a strong centre for these woozy songs. On Bronzerat ...view item »

Rozi Plain

Lone Wolf
Lodge

Paul Marshall aka Lone Wolf gives us his entry into the canon of ‘albums made in a secluded cabin’ with Lodge. Every note of his rather bleak, yet ornate ballads were recorded in the Bridlington lodge in an album of rawly captured piano, trumpet, drums and voice. On LP and CD from SNWF records....view item »

Ezra Furman
Day Of The Dog

After hearing “My Zero”, the catchy indie-pop nugget, I really didn’t expect “Day Of The Dog” to sound the way it did. Although it’s his fifth album, I was previously unaware of Ezra Furman. This album is basically a rock ‘n’ roll album, and I mean proper milkshakes-at-the-diner 50s rock ‘n&r...view item »

Albert Hammond Jr.
Momentary Masters

From Albert Hammond Junior - the chap from the Strokes - comes this jangly indie pop album titled Momentary Masters. Ten tracks which he thinks ‘are the best that he’s ever written’. Well, we’re not going to argue. Tight, fun guitar tracks - definitely harking back to early Strokes material. One for fans ...view item »

J Fernandez
Many Levels of Laughter

J Fernandez sounds like he has been sitting out in the sun for a long time thinking about these songs, enjoying the warmth but also feeling a bit sad. Not too sad, but a touch of melancholy. Many Levels Of Laughter is a very well crafted piece of psychedelic songwriting, pressed to LP (including some indie-store-exclusi...view item »

Spooner Oldham
Pot Luck

Spooner Oldham released his one and only solo album back in 1972. The man wrote songs and played keys for a wide variety of classic soul artists, but this is the only opportunity to hear him take centre stage. God knows why, as he sounds very comfortable there. Pot Luck is fully remastered and reissued by Light In The A...view item »

The Webb Brothers
Cold Fingers

The Webb Brothers are Christiaan and Justin Webb. They are the sons of songwriter extraordinaire Jimmy Webb who wrote songs such as "Wichita Lineman" and "Galveston" for Glen Campbell. "Cold Fingers" was taken from their debut album "Beyond The Biosphere" which was released in 1998, and in my opinion it's the best song on the album. If "Cold Fin...view item »

Vetiver
The Errant Charm

A while ago someone gave me one of Vertivers first albums. I waited for awhile to listen to it but I was hooked from that day forward. Every album I’ve heard of theirs gets play time. This album is great from start to finish. I can put this on and play it and not have the feeling to jump tracks. It has a fresh romantic sound that works gre...view item »

Vetiver
Tight Knit

Very nice album, but at first I wasn't as knocked out as I had hoped. I really enjoyed the band's covers album, "Thing of the Past," so I had high hopes for this one too. To be honest, it took a long time to grow on me. But that's always one of the qualities of really good music; it grows on you. There are definite subtle elements to these songs...view item »

David Vandervelde
Waiting For The Sunrise

Waiting For The Sunrise is David Vandervelde's second album and was released in 2008. Whilst the '70s influences of his debut album "The Moonstation House Band" are still there, the comparisons to T-Rex aren't so much. This has more of a smooth country rock vibe with the occasional fleck of Yacht Rock. The songs are more straight forward, lack t...view item »

Throw Me The Statue
Moonbeams

I really dig this CD for its diversity. It's got some great lo-fi pop songs that are catchy but never repetitive or overly simplistic. It also has some great rock tunes where they really get it going on the guitar. The tracks are polished enough that you don't have to be an indie rock nerd to enjoy it on a first listening but it's also layered enou...view item »

Owl & Mouse
Departures

With the sweet Australian voice of Hannah Botting, Owl & Mouse are treating us to another album.

Or for when you like pretty songs, of ...view item »

Jason Steel
The Weight of Care

Now this guy produces a sweet take on his chosen genre, one that resides in that dusty old field over yonder ie. alt. country/Americana. He’s from Sheffield, erm, Steel City is this laddie and this is the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Fire Begot Ash’. ...view item »

One of those nice, tidy little clear-up releases from Sharon Van Etten here on Jagjaguwar.

Mishka Shubaly
Coward’s Path

A quite stunningly personal album here from Mishka Shubaly, who delves deep into his own life to bring to bear his own experience of alcoholism. The Coward’s Path indeed.
