Little Wings
Explains

Little Wings is the alias of Kyle Field and he’s accumulated a large discography by now. Explains is the latest addition to that vast collection. Here we have a collection of folk tunes which gingle along gently with Field’s deadpan voice drawing you further into the song and the lyrics. It’s a warm cup of tea on a rainy Sunday, just how good folk music should be.

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.

Richard Buckner
The Hill

Richard Buckner's ‘The Hill’ was born in 1996 at The Ranch Olancha Motel, a converted garage near the mouth of Death Valley, while Buckner was staying a week in a room with nothing for company but his guitar, a four-track recorder, and a copy of Lee ‘Masters' Spoon River Anthology’. The resulting recordings of Buckner’s experiments with passages from the iconic book of poems were then forgotten about until four years later when he would bring them back to life with the help of Calexico's Joey Burns and John Convertino.

William D Drake
Revere Reach

Despite having made his name with the frantic Cardiacs, William D Drake’s solo work shows considerable delicacy and craft. With more than a touch of folk tradition lurking beneath these compositions, Revere Reach builds up a strong and personal sense of place around the semi-real location named in the title. On Onomatopoeia.

Tout
Third

Third is an instrumental album of folky tunes which sprawl out vast landscapes before your eyes, some evoking the far West with blues inspired guitar work, and others keeping in Tout’s native England, with whimsical folk features such as a double bass and violins. The tunes build and grow and always seem fresh upon every listen.

Misty Miller
Taxi Cab

A 19 year old from South London, Misty Miller’s already been around for awhile. Her sound has had time to change too. Those expecting the pleasant misty-eyed Misty Miller with an acoustic guitar will not find that here on this 7” single, Taxi Cab, a rollocking rock ’n’ roll number which is similar to that bluesy rock sound that Irish band The Strypes are making. Maybe this rock 'n' roll revival lark is to be taken seriously. 7” vinyl limited to 500 copies.

Following the success of ‘A Fistful Of Desert Blues’, Lydia Lunch & Cypress Grove have expanded their collaborative powers to include the nihilist folk sounds of Spiritual Front.

ALA.NI
YOU & I - Spring

ALA.NI gained her singing chops by performing with artists as diverse as Mary J. Blige, Andrea Bocelli and Damon Albarn. Her voice is fragile yet strong, her sound is anachronistic yet completely perfect for now. Not only is she a performer, but she directed the video for “Cherry Blossom”. A refreshingly creative new talent.

Paul Weller
Saturns Pattern

Saturns Pattern is Paul Weller’s eleventh solo studio album but his first for the Parlophone label. Weller describes the album as being different to everything else he’s done and different to all other music that currently exists. I’m sure fans of the Modfather will love it though, with a dose of the usual amidst what are described as "fresh avenues". Ah, fresh avenues.

Laura Groves
Committed Language

The follow-up EP to Laura Groves’ previous release, Thinking About Thinking, Committed Language is a four track EP of sensual R&B style rhythms with some nice grooves and beats which flirts with electronic lounge music. It’s all brought together by Groves’ crisp voice which is both vulnerable and empowering.   On 12” vinyl.

Marika Hackman
We Slept At Last

Finally out with a full length album, Marika Hackman’s voice is a gift. We Slept At Last is not only a pretty debut, but it’s also by sung with poetic force by an artist obsessed with the literary. The songs are pretty but have a strange density to them. All in all: pretty sure you can't go wrong with it.

The Blood Tub Orchestra
We're Glad You've Got a Gun

Blood Tub Orchestra are a new group dedicated to retrieving and revitalising old forgotten tunes from the Victorian and Edwardian eras (unless they are pastiche originals, it is hard to be sure at this stage). Either way, good tunes and a hardy, bloody aesthetic. Debut EP, on the tantalisingly named Phono Erotic label.

Jimbo Mathus
Blue Healer

Jimbo Mathus was a founding member of blues/jazz revivalists, Squirrel Nut Zippers. They were absolutely huge in the states but failed to really capture the imagination of the British public. Mathus has been reasonably prolific since his band broke up in the early 2000s, however and Blue Healer is his eleventh album. As you may gather from the album cover, Mathus is a one of a kind.

William Elliott Whitmore
Radium Death

It’s folk-punk time. What a great crossover. William Elliott Whitmore gives us some gravelly voiced, thumping guitar blues. Radium Death is proper storytelling to a fast beat which requires a few stomping hillbillies, a couple of barrels of something strong and a few tyres for the kids to play with. Electric stuff.

Jane Weaver / Tender Prey
Don't Take My Soul / Undisputed Heavyweight Champion Of My Heart

Jane Weaver’s Don't Take my Soul is an exposition of her gentle electropop and pretty, can’t-quite-put-your-thumb-on-it vocals, delivered appealingly and at high pitch. The 7” is split with Tender Prey, whose Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of my Heart is a promising sneak preview of their upcoming full-length.

Ron Sexsmith
Carousel One

With his perfectly spherical head and mop of ash coloured hair, Ron Sexsmith cuts an unlikely figure for one of pop/rock's most endearing singer songwriters. Always an artist who seems to appeal to other singer songwriters over people who actually buy records, Sexsmith has seemingly achieved the impossible and not sunk into obscurity. His new album takes its name from the luggage retrieval belt at Los Angeles airport where bags off Toronto inbound flights are delivered and contains sixteen new songs recorded with some top notch studio musicians.

Stick In The Wheel
Common Ground / Hasp

Hailing from the grime scene, the members of Stick in the Wheel now take their expertise to folk music. Common Ground is driven by a thumping guitar rhythm and pretty yet haunting vocals, whereas Hasp by Stick is fleeting, gentle track about the toils of a horse that was recorded in one take. Limited to 300 pressings.

Soko

Produced by the legendary Ross Robinson (The Cure), ‘My Dreams Dictate My Reality’ is singer songwriter Soko’s follow up to her melancholic folk album debut ‘I Thought I Was An Alien’. The album includes two hypnotic collaborative tracks (‘Monster Love’ and ‘Lovetrap’) with lo-fi troubadour Ariel Pink.

Richard Swift
Ground Trouble Jaw

Record Store Day 2015 release from Richard Swift: we’ve got a few copies left if you want to snap one up! Totally spot-on songs in a Motown-via-the-present-day style. Ground Trouble Jaw was first released only digitally, but thankfully can now be heard on a vinyl record. 12” EP on Secretly Canadian.

Laura Marling
Short Movie

The ever-prolific Laura Marling only recently offered us her mythical folk master-stroke Once I Was An Eagle, but she returns with more on Short Movie, an equally but differently expansive work focused on electric guitars and scorched rock energy. Same serious, intense work; different approach.

Scott Matthew
This Here Defeat

Following an album of covers in 2013’s Unlearned, Scott Matthew arrives with This Here Defeat, an album of his own music. It’s a soft collection of singer-songwriter numbers. Well executed and recorded with sparse instrumentation and a lightness of touch. Out on CD and vinyl + CD from Glitterhouse Records.

Seasick Steve
Sonic Soul Surfer

It’s everyone’s favourite beardy hillbilly Seasick Steve who recorded this, his seventh album believe it or not, Sonic Soul Surfer on his farm and it’s more of what we expect from Seasick; deep folk/blues, stomping rhythm and just a good ol’ time. It includes some fiddle and a jaw harp (me neither) to beef it up further. It’s sunny California in LP form.

Earth
Primitive and Deadly

Earth, worshipers of all things slow and the band responsible for Sunn O))), are releasing their new record - it's called, with amazing precision, 'Primitive and Deadly'. It's their fifth release for Southern Lord, and continues their ascent into focusing on building subtle arrangements around the focal point of Dylan Carlson's guitar work. On 'Primitive and Deadly' Earth welcome some guests into their doomy mists, the record featuring vocals from Screaming Trees' fellow Mark Lanegan as well as Rabi Shaheen Qazi. There's also bass work courtesy of Sunn O))) collaborator Bill Herzog.   Tracks: Torn By The Fox of the Crescent Moon There Is A Serpent Coming From The Zodiacal Light Even Hell Has Its Heroes Rooks Across The Gate Torn By The Fox Of The Crescent Moon There Is a Serpent Coming From The Zodiacal Light Even Hell Has Its Heroes Rooks Across The Gate Badgers Bane

Stone Jack Jones
Love & Torture

Darkly lustrous Americana on West Virginian Stone Jack Jones’s second album, the follow-up to last year’s well-received ‘Ancestor’. The fact that Kurt Wagner (Lambchop) drops by to lend his tones to “Circumstance” should offer some idea of the songwriting chops on display throughout this 10-track exploration of life, death and ultimate redemption.

Mary Epworth
Dream Life

With a love of vocal harmonies that stun and freeze, whether they're from the oeuvre of the Beach Boys or found in traditional folk songs, Mary Epworth's music draws on musical intuitions like psych and pop and attempts to update them for a contemporary landscape. Dream Life is sort of hazy, but it's about that haze being countered with light and clarity.
