Jeff Tweedy
Warm

Warm is the second solo album by Jeff Tweedy, but the first to be comprised entirely from new material. It follows on from last year’s Together At Last, which contained acoustic versions of songs from his bands Wilco, Golden Smog and Loose Fur. Here, he is ably assisted by his son, Spencer Tweedy, Wilco drummer, Glenn Kotche and Tom Schick. It was produced and recorded by Jeff Tweedy, which really makes it totally his album. LP and CD on dBpm Records.

Father John Misty
I Love You, Honeybear

With a slew of understated folk records secured under his own name and a hell of a fun time had playing soft percussive noises for Fleet Foxes, J. Tillman returns to his Father John Misty project, where he mixes esoteric lyricism with brazen folk rock arrangements. I Love You, Honeybear follows on from Fear Fun.

Will Oldham
Songs of Love and Horror

Will Oldham yet again mines his own back catalogue this time as solo singer songwriter armed with just voice and guitar. It will be interesting to hear how everything sits in such an intimate setting. The album has also been made as a companion piece to a book of his lyrics which is about to be published. And as a plus point you get a nice picture of him with a dog on the cover. Woof woof!

Kristin Hersh (of Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave) hereby releases her tenth album as a solo artist. And it's a big one.

Double LP on the Happy Happy Birthday To Me label.

The Felice Brothers
The Felice Brothers

The Felice Brothers debut album was originally released in 2008. The band, who call New York’s Catskill Mountains home, took their inspiration from The Band - seemingly just as much from their unkempt, ragged look on the cover of their self-titled second album as they did from the music. For those that enjoy their alt. country/Americana, this is a high-point of the genre. 10th anniversary reissue 180g LP with bonus 7” or CD with bonus tracks.

Pearls Before Swine
Balaklava

Proper classic of underground psychedelic-folk right here. Drag City have done us all the immense courtesy of reissuing ‘Balaklava’, the 1968 epic by Pearls Before Swine. It’s a record that flits from more earnest and stripped-bare balladry to spots that are genuinely exploratory and compositionally audacious. Needless to say this is an essential listen, and it’s been made easier than ever with this run of reissues available on both LP and CD.

Alasdair Roberts, Neil McDermot & Tartine de Clous
Au Cube

This is a lovely recording of three fellas, Alasdair Roberts, Neil McDermot & Tartine de Clous singing traditional French folk harmonies, accompanied by violin (and there's a great video of the live performance on Youtube in which they wear a rollneck, Breton shirt and a scarf - I kid you not!). The recording was made at a performance Au Cube in Bristol. It's a lovely display of traditional music.

Wells has had a long and illustrious career, never content to settle. Price meanwhile has played with Mats Gustafson, Ntshuks Bonga and more.

Beautify Junkyards
The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards

The third LP for Lisbon hypnagogicists Beautify Junkyards sees the group sticking to the rose-tinted music that landed them on Ghost Box in the first place. The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards brings together English acid folk stylings, Brazilian tropicalia, Iberian psych and the German Kosmische to create a style that sounds suspended in space and time. Stereolab and Os Mutantes come to mind, but Beautify Junkyards are out on their own with this one.

Anni Hogan
Lost In Blue

A star-studded and aptly titled new album of forlorn songs by Anni Hogan (AEAEA, Attrition, Marc and the Mambas and many others.) Hogan’s enthusiasm for collaboration has surely led to lots of friendships over the years, which may explain the incendiary team she’s put together for this one. There’s Lydia Lunch, ex-Kraftwerk Wolfgang Flür, Kid Congo Powers, Scarlet West - to name just a few.

KT Tunstall
BBC Live Sessions

Over the years, guitar troubadour KT Tunstall has turned up and recorded at the BBC a few times: revisiting the sessions, some of them sounded quite good, so now here we go with a proper EP release. BBC Live Sessions includes some early-period treats, including a Jools Holland performance that kind of began Tunstall’s rise to fame. Vinyl with download.

Larry Jon Wilson
New Beginnings

Larry Jon Wilson may have one of the loveliest voices I've ever heard, and yet odds are, you've never heard of him. Be With Records have taken on the important task of reissuing his early work, New Beginnings being his debut album recorded after a decade in corporate America. Sadly, he was never a huge success in his own time but his voice and its accompanying country but funky style are well worth trying on.

Lambchop
This (Is What I Wanted To Tell You)

Veteran alt-country mister Lambchop releasing with perhaps his thirtieth. For This (Is What I Wanted to Tell You) Kurt Wagner teamed up with fellow alternative country scenester Matthew McCaughan, known for playing drums for sad beard Bon Iver. The new album continues with the thoughtful mix of electronics and quiet country sounds started on 2016’s FLOTUS.

Tom Waits
Nighthawks At The Diner

Waits’ third album is arguably the pinnacle of his early beatnik barfly persona. Taking a different approach to his more mannered previous albums, the 1975 LP was recorded live in a pseudo small club setup. It’s jazzy and deceptively loose and boozy, though Tom knows exactly what he’s doing, whether delivering jokey banter or vividly narrative songs like Spare Parts and Putnam County.

Rachael Dadd
Spark Illuminate / The Holly And The Ivy

It's Christmas 7" season and here's the latest by folky singer songwriter Rachel Dadd. She takes the image of the holly and the ivy as a base for two festive themed songs. Firstly she covers The Holly and the Ivy the actual 19th century folk song but also supplies an original song Spark Illuminate to warm your heart over the yuletide season.

Daniel Knox
Chasescene

Chicagoan vibrato-on-legs Daniel Knox scrambles Jarvis Cocker and Nina Natasia to lend their talents to new album Chasescene. Knox’s heartfelt, mongrel style of piano playing and weary, croaky voice drive his cinematic and noirish representations of nighttime heartbreak, intrigue and disarray in the windy city.

Nick Drake
Bryter Layter

Bryter Layter should obviously be in your record collection, and luckily you don’t have to spend £1,000,000 on a crackly old dog of a copy anymore. Island have faithfully remastered and reissued this beautiful thing from the (almost) original master tapes, and packaged it so it’s just like how your Dad would have bought it back in the day. PLUS you get high-res digital files of the tunes, as well as all sorts of trinkets and gubbins to help you imagine like you was there in 1971, baby.

The Fernweh
The Fernweh

The Fernweh are a three-piece from Liverpool who play psych/folk/pop/rock that harks back to the late ‘60s/early ‘70s.

E.B. The Younger is Eric Brandon Pulido, the frontman of Midlake. To Each His Own sees him stepping out on his own for the first time, although it’s not his first album without his Midlake bandmates. He was part of BNQT, a supergroup including members of Franz Ferdinand, Band of Horses, Travis and Grandaddy. Pulido sees the album as a way to diplomatically solve artistic differences within Midlake. LP and CD on Bella Union.

The Love You Save

The Love You Save brings together lesser-know nuggets of American soul music in a similar way to the oft-referenced Anthology of American Folk Music put together by Harry Smith. Nicely packaged with 24 tracks spread over two LPs there’s some real gems on here: From the soulful title track by Joe Tex via the weighty funk of Hard Times by Baby Huey to the phenomenal mind-blower, This Bitter Earth by Dinah Washington. Limited edition double LP on Cairo Records / Mississippi.

Sun Kil Moon
Ghosts Of The Great Highway

Out of print for far too long, Ghosts of the Great Highway is a timely reminder of the power and emotion Mark Kozelek's music once had. This was his first 'group' record post Red House Painters and is seen as one of his best. With a band featuring Anthony Koutsos (Red House Painters), Tim Mooney (American Music Club), the album fine tunes Kozelek's previous poetic sadcore with a healthy dose of Americana. Vinyl reissue contains original bonus track 'Gentle Moon'.

Since 2016, Darren Hayman has been conducting an investigation into the the nuances of rural life in Britain. He took as his starting point the island's Thankful Villages, those to whom all their soldiers returned from the First World War alive. He visited each in turn, creating in response to them. Volume 3 marks the end of Hayman's study, one whose pastoral folk guitar capture the essence of its subject.

It was originally released in 2003 and contains songs written over a number of years. Heavyweight vinyl LP on Domino.

Robert Forster
Inferno

In an ideal world, Robert Forster’s band, The Go-Betweens would have sold millions of records in the eighties, such was their ability to write a nice tune. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen and The Go-Betweens music was left to be appreciated by those in the know. Robert Forster is now a writer of exquisite songs and books and father of one third of The Goon Sax. His new album, Inferno, was produced by Victor Van Vugt and it’s the first time the pair have worked together since Forster’s solo debut back in 1990. LP and CD on Tapete.

Canterbury Girls was produced by Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, the duo behind Kacey Musgraves’ crossover success, Golden Hour. LP and CD on New West.

Gloria Duplex is the second album by Vermont-based singer/songwriter Henry Jamison. The album examines how it feels to be white and male in the US in the current social climate, but not in a disturbing Trump kind of way. It was produced by Thomas Bartlett, who has worked with Sufjan Stevens, with string arrangements by Rob Moose, who did the same for Bon Iver. LP and CD on Akira Records.

Sufjan Stevens
Songs For Christmas

How nice it would be to live in Sufjan world. Each year around the festive season he'd gather round with friends to make a Christmas EP. He'll be there in a massive jumper singing away. Heartwarming. Well this tradition went on for a few years and now you can get all the yuletide fruits on this box set of all the songs. Sufjan's folky and melancholy tones are just perfect for Christmas listening.

Neil Young
After The Gold Rush

Neil’s 1970 masterpiece is sublimely balanced. The lonesome piano stoner anthem of the title track, the eerie / uplifting Don’t Let It Bring you Down, Only Love Can Break Your Heart’s hippy wisdom, a pair of Crazy Horse rockers, and a few weepies. There’s not a song here that wouldn’t be an essential setlist inclusion for most artists, but this is Neil we’re talking about. Hence the charming miniatures Cripple Creek Ferry and Til the Morning Comes are relatively overlooked and Tell Me Why rarely gets a live airing. The recent remaster was a revelation and best of all on vinyl.

The Black Light by Calexico was originally released 20 years ago so it seems fitting that we now have a 20th anniversary version to savour. It was the band’s second album, but probably the first to get them noticed. Their mix of mariachi brass, flamenco, indie rock and jazz wrapped up in dusty Americana was seamlessly blended to create a sound that is very much their own. Features a guest appearance from Howe Gelb of Giant Sand. Double LP and CD on City Slang.

Yorkshire Folk legend Michael Chapman has been releasing albums since 1969 on fairly consistent basis, in terms of quality and quantity, barring the odd gap here and there. True North is his latest offering and the follow-up to 2017’s acclaimed album, 50. He is loved by the likes of Thurston Moore and Steve Gunn, the latter just happens to have produced and played guitar on this record. Other guests include fellow folk legend Bridget St. John and pedal steel player BJ Cole. LP and CD on Paradise of Bachelors. **Pre-order and be put in a hat to win a bottle of Michael Chapman wine**

Daniel Romano
Finally Free

Daniel Romano is definitely good at two things: 1) making his album covers look like albums that are found in charity shops (check out the covers for Workin’ For The Music Man and Come Cry With Me). 2) working hard - Finally Free is his eighth album in as many years. His music has run the gamut of classic sounds from the past. On the evidence of the track All The Reaching Trims, he delves into the world of late ‘60s singer/songwriter to great effect. LP and CD on New West.

James Yorkston
The Route To The Harmonium

I love to think about James Yorkston's daily life  - tinkering around in his attic with his vintage instruments at his disposal, the distant sound of the sea just with in earshot. He recorded the whole of this new album in said space but later got in...guess who?...David Wrench to have a listen and make some suggestions. The result is a deeply personal treasure trove of songs exemplifying Yorkston at the peak of his craft.

Tides of a Teardrop is about as sad as it sounds, with the songs on this album searching for weights to bear. Country music mister and misses Mandolin Orange try to deal with the death of Andrew Marlin’s mum by writing songs about it. The result is a quiet and introspective album with mournful tunes, wailing violins, and slow-paced vocals.

Lateness of Dancers

M.C. Taylor is the folkie who hides behind the Hiss Golden Messenger moniker. 'Lateness of Dancers' is second record in as many years, and he follows on from the dark and fractured tones of 'Haw' with a warmer, more welcoming vibe. It continues his pattern of recording his records wherever he damn well chooses, made in a small barn in his home-state. 'Lateness of Dancers' features a wide roster of collaborators, including vocal duets with the help of Mountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig. Tracks: Lucia Saturday's Song Mahogany Dread Day O Day (A Love So Free) Lateness of Dancers  I'm a Raven (Shake Children) Black Dog Wind (Rose of Roses) Southern Grammar Chapter & Verse (Ione's Song) Drum

Neil Young
Songs For Judy

Songs For Judy sees Neil Young delving into his rich archive again. This time, it’s a debut release for his own Shakey Pictures Records label. The album gathers together solo live recordings from November 1976. There are well-known classics such as Heart Of Gold, The Needle And The Damage Done and After Gold Rush coupled with early versions of songs such as White Line which wouldn’t appear in studio form until his 1990 album, Ragged Glory. This album’s USP, however, is No One Seems To Know - a song that has never been released anywhere before. Double LP on 140g vinyl and CD.

Rosey-cheeked posho Johnny Flynn played at London’s Roundhouse to celebrate a decade of getting rich off his Downton Abbey-ass brand of Eton folk. He also brought his band of Merrie Men (who go by the The Sussex Wit, which is a bad name) along for some company. The recording of this gig is called - surprise, surprise - Live At The Roundhouse. This LP includes 24 songs, which means you could conceivably listen to one track an hour every day until you shuffle off into death.

Ghost Forests

Meg Baird and Mary Lattimore are both great, let's be honest. So Ghost Forests was bound to be a winner of a record: and so it has proved. The two musicians have built six songs together, mixing the many strings of the guitar and the harp with Mary’s vocals. Ghosts Forests feels like a perfect fitting-together of two excellent solo artists: try it. On Three Lobed Recordings.

Der-ner-ner derrrr ner-ner-ner, on Broooooadwaaaaay! Unfortunately this new collection from The Boss doesn’t feature a cover of the classic ‘60s paean to Manhattan, but Springsteen On Broadway makes up for it by featuring plenty of Bruce. Taped at his 2017-2018 run at NYC’s Walter Kerr Theatre, this collection is a masterful retrospective from a man ageing more gracefully than most. Springsteen chats and croons his way through some of his hits from down the years. Occasionally his wife Patti Scialfa turns up to accompany him.

Ed Harcourt
Beyond The End

Famed for writing exquisite pop songs that plough similar furrows to Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson on albums such as Here Be Monsters before turning his hand to being songwriter to the stars, Ed Harcourt follows his expansive major label debut, Furnaces (2016), with a real curveball. Beyond The End is an album of piano-led instrumentals, with inspiration taken from Saite, Mozart, Debussy, Max Richter, Philip Glass and Warren Ellis all imbued with Harcourt’s melodic and mournful sensibilities.

There are covers of AC/DC and Partridge Family songs. Mark Kozelek has also set a chapter from Irish writer, John Connolly’s novel ‘He’ to music. So it’s not just songs about his evening meal, then?

Leonard Cohen
I'm Your Man

I’m Your Man is such an amazingly high quality Leonard Cohen album that fully six of its eight tracks are included on his greatest hits compilation. Cohen fully embraced synthesiser backing here, and the whole record simmers with dark glamour. Includes crucial Cohen cuts like ‘Ain’t No Cure For Love’, ‘Tower of Song’ and the title track. Vinyl reissue on Legacy.

Ryley Walker
The Lillywhite Sessions

Dave Matthews Band recorded an album with producer Steve Lillywhite which was scrapped at the label’s behest. Now, this bit confuses me - the press release here describe the album in terms I would not match with Dave Matthews Band such as ‘art rock’ and ‘masterpiece’. However, they are terms I can associate with Ryley Walker who has tried his hand at re-recording the album, The Lillywhite Sessions. Although the Dave Matthews Band version was scrapped, some tracks showed up on their 2002 album Busted Stuff. From hearing those tracks I think they might sound rather fine in the hands of Ryley Walker. LP and CD on Dead Oceans.

Heather Woods Broderick
Glider

‘Glider’ is the latest LP release from melancholic, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Heather Woods Broderick. The album is comprised of richly textured, atmospheric dreamscapes crafted from Broderick’s, uniquely ethereal, wall of sound vocals, carried by untreated, exposed piano and layers of hypnotic guitar sounds.

Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou
Fair Lady London

Indie-folk couple, formerly of Indigo Moss and Danny & The Champions Of The World, Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou put their career on the back-burner for a few years to have a baby. Now they’re back with Fair Lady London, their fifth album. After having the luxury of a full studio and the experienced ears of Ethan Johns to produce their last album, they have stripped everything back and recorded this of a trusty ol’ Tascam 4-track recorder. Features a guest appearance from Danny George Wilson (Danny & The Champions Of The World, Grand Drive). LP and CD on Maiden Voyage.

Daniel Johnston
Hi, How Are You / Yip/Jump Music

35 years after he gave them out for free in McDonalds etc, these first two very early tapes of lo-fi outsider genius Daniel Johnston have been compiled onto vinyl for the first time. You may know the artwork from Hi, How Are You? better than the songs thanks to it's now legendary status but it's worth listening again to these barely formed treats which veer from madcap mayhem to pure songwriting brilliance.

The Gracious Losers
The Last of the Gracious Losers

More creativity from Glasgow which is surely one of the UK's most productive cities. I went to a dog disco there  - it was incredible. Anyway this is the brainchild of one Jonathan Lilley and it features a 12 piece ensemble made out of people from Thrum, God Help the Girl and something called The Berrie Big Band. Influences include Neil Young and Van Morrison so this could be rather interesting.

Daniel Bachman
The Morning Star

Three Lobed Recordings (Hiss Golden Messenger, Six Organs Of Admittance) release a new LP from the highly impressive Daniel Bachman. The Morning Star is an evocative mix of psychedelic organ drones, American folk/blues guitar and found sounds. As the low rumbles slowly unspool his artfully shonky six-string playing often stumbles upon moments of profound beauty. Think Richard Dawson, Ian William Craig and Panda Bear.

Cubs
Darkr Earlyr

Right, well I hope you're up for some fireside folk on these dark and wintry evenings. It's Cubs, with their second LP 'Darkr Earlyr' following their 2011 debut 'The Whispering Woods' on Rusted Rail records. Taking advantage of the resurgence of interest in leftfield folk, the Irish band features members of A Lilac Decline, Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon, United Bible Studies and Loner Deluxe. Dreamy melodies, stellar improvisation and rustic songcraft make Darkr Earlyr an essential late-season listen.

Link Wray
Link Wray

In which the legendary guitarist (now down to just the one lung) moved away from the instrumental nature of his previous records and sang roots, country and folk in a gutteral bark.Pretty much ignored at the time, the record has gained a cult following as the years flew by with Nick Cave and the Neville Brothers covering it's songs.

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

The Bert Jansch estate has worked with Earth Recordings to bring us A Man I'd Rather Be (Part 1). The collection arrives as a 4-LP set in case-bound book or 4-CD set in book-back packaging. With music culled from the highly prolific Jansch's '60s years, namely: 'Bert Jansch'; 'It Don't Bother Me'; 'Jack Orion' and 'Bert & John' -- so Part 1 starts, logically enough, at the very beginning. These four records were recorded in the space of just 2 years, and amazingly enough were of the highest quality.

Cass McCombs
Tip of the Sphere

Cass McCombs has been knocking about for many years now and is one of those artists where two albums don't sound the same. He is continually tweaking and pushing his sound into new territories and on this his 9th album he has recorded the songs in on time and place ensuring that the album is his most consistent statements of intent.

Cecilia Fage and Jarrod Gosling make up Cobalt Chapel, a psych-folk-rock duo who have played with Matt Berry, I Monster and Regal Worm.

Sand
Golem

Reissue of little-known kraut rock band Sand's only album, 1974's 'Golem'. The album was once chosen as Julian Cope's record of the month, and you can see why. Trippy synthesisers accompany a blend of drum-less rock and folk. It's properly psychedelic and totally weird and ace. Buy it as it should be heard, on vinyl. On Rotorelief records.

Mumford & Sons
Delta

You know when a band is expected to shift a few units when the press release bangs on about the massive tour the band are about to embark on. In this case it’s the trust-fund Wurzels (thank you, Charlie Brooker) Mumford & Sons. Their new and fourth album filled with anthemic folk-rock is locked and loaded and ready to go. Produced by master polisher Paul Epworth whose production credits range from Adele to Friendly Fires to Thurston Moore. Lovely double LP and CD on Island.

Big Thief duo Adrianne Lenker & Buck Meek bring together their 2014 EPs A-Sides and B-Sides on one slab o’ wax/disc o’ polycarbonate. Anyone who copped the records when they first saw light of day will know that these are spare indie-folk affairs that any Zooey Deschanel-types in your life will go crazy for. For those who're new here - these are spare indie-folk affairs that any Zooey Deschanel-types in your life will go crazy for.

Adrianne Lenker
Hours Were The Birds

Adrianne Lenker has been causing a stir with her stunning voice and songs with Brooklyn-based indie/folk band Big Thief. In 2013, prior to her hooking up with them, she lived in Minneapolis and recorded an album called Hours Were The Birds. The album features just Lenker’s voice and guitar and was mixed by Andrew Sarlo who would also be the man in the chair for subsequent Big Thief albums, Masterpiece and Capacity. LP and CD on Saddle Creek.

Jay Bolotin
No One Seems To Notice That It's Raining

Jay Bolotin is one of the great ‘what-if’s of the American songbook. A singer-songwriter contemporaneous with Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, Bolotin’s work is known to be admired by artists including Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard. However, he has never had much success in getting his music released. Now this Delmore Recorings collection hopes to give Bolotin some long-overdue shine. Recorded in the first half of the 1970’s, the tracks of No One Seems To Notice That It’s Raining are spare, melancholy things. One wonders if Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy ever got wind of these.

Craig Brown Band
Big City Small Town

Craig Brown Band follow-up their debut album, The Lucky Ones, with Big City Small Town, a 7” single that meshes garage-rock with country. Since their debut album, they have toured with country...legend, probably….Dwight Yokam and now are about to embark on a European tour for the first time. 7" on Third Man.

Eiko Ishibashi
The Dream My Bones Dream

Eiko Ishibashi is a remarkable artist, somehow equally at home singing heartfelt, delicate lounge-jazz pop music and collaborating free-improv style with Darin Gray and, er, Merzbow. The Dream My Bones Dream is a songs record, though it is rich with details of instrumentation and texture. Jim O’Rourke fans should know that Eiko’s playing is all over his recent work, and he returned the favour by mixing this. On Drag City.
  • Vinyl LP (DC727)

Julia Jacklin
Crushing

Julia Jacklin drops the eagerly-awaited follow-up to her 2016 debut LP Don’t Let The Kids Win. Crushing is another record of thoughtful, impressive indie-rock in the Angel Olsen/Cate Le Bon vein. ‘Head Alone’s chorus of ‘you can’t love somebody without using your hands’ proves that Jacklin is also one of the funnier singer-songwriters operating today.

A collection of new and unforgotten songs from Big Thief's Adrianne Lenker.

The guitar playing is plaintive and tender, and her singing is warm and welcoming. On Saddle Creek.

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.

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.

Preservation is a record born out of international travel and interpersonal heartache, which gives it an emotional depth even greater than Reid’s previous album. Preservation is released by Basin Rock.

Brigid Mae Power
Brigid Mae Power

Brigid Mae Power has absorbed the true flavour of Ireland during her time living there. Although this self-titled album was recorded in Oregon, USA (with Peter Broderick), Galway remains audible. Her songs often feel like a thick, mournful dream, textured with accordions, harmoniums, and her magnificent voice. On Tompkins Square.

Joanna Newsom
Have One On Me

It had been three years since Joanna Newsom’s previous album, Ys. To make up for this gap, she made a triple album, Have One On Me, essentially one single album for each year that she missed. Despite its lengthy sprawl, it was more accessible than its predecessor, drawing comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, albeit with Joanna's indelible stamp. It should definitely be thought of as an essential addition to any record collection.
