Bert Jansch
Live At The 12 Bar

Live At The 12 Bar finds Bert Jansch in fine form, recorded back in 1995 at a small London club. After a lengthy career (including as a founding member of Pentangle), Jansch is, quite rightly, a highly respected artist, and this collection gives a fifteen-track insight into his position in the folk tradition. First time on vinyl, on Earth Records.

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 folktronica mood.

Beth Orton
Comfort Of Strangers

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 Daybreaker. Comfort of Strangers was recorded with the help of Jim O’Rourke as producer, so you just know that every little corner of these compositions shines through clearly.

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. It conjures up a curious blend of Scot intoning his prose / poetry and a varied collection of musical backings. Reissued by Heavenly Recordings, vinyl or CD.

Terry de Castro
You Can’t Separate Light

Terry De Castro has a busy history, having played with The Wedding Present, Cinerama and Goya Dress.

You Can’t Separate Light is her second solo outing, released by Scopitones on clear vinyl.

Joan Shelley
Over and Even

Joan Shelley is a poetic singer-songwriter, performing perfectly-formed country / folk / americana with the help of a talented band (including back-up singing from Will Oldham).

Meilyr Jones
Refugees / Birds

Meilyr Jones splits this single between a heartfelt solo piano and voice song, Refugees, and the full baroque orchestral sweep of Birds. Both pieces showcase a grand musical style and a reality-rooted lyrical intent, with lines including “switch off the television”. Refugees / Birds is out as a limited edition 12” on Moshi Moshi.

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 is his label debut, though his folkloric Americana stays its course.

Beirut
The Flying Club Cup

The Flying Club Cup was the second album by Balkan influenced folkster Beirut (aka Zach Condon) following his lauded debut Gulag Orkestar. There seems to be a somewhat French influence to the music here, Condon was finding musical inspiration from the likes of Jacques Brel and each song is supposed to reference a French city. It's big and bold orchestral pop using all kinds of brass, string and woodwind to ensure Condon sounds something like a thousand piece European orchestra rather than a lad from Santa Fe.

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. Arrangements involve prominent fiddle and acoustic guitar, always subtly constructed, and Crain’s vocals have a rich grain to them. On Full Time Hobby.

Jackson C. Frank
The Complete Recordings

Like Jackson C. Frank? Well then, Ba Da Bing! are your new best friends: the label is releasing The Complete Recordings of the great man, conveniently available as either three separate records or a single triple-disc CD box-set. His delicate, mournful, and all-round remarkable folk music is well worth owning in full.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

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 as a CD or LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Rozi Plain
Friend

Friend is the third album by alt-folk practitioner Rozi Plain. The Winchester-born singer/songwriter has roped in of Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor and a few members of Francois & The Atlas Mountains to help on this record. You may have heard the single Actually doing the rounds on 6 Music recently. Definitely worth checking out!
  • Genre(s):

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 of summery indie music such as Teleman and Phoenix. Vinyl LP, and CD on Infectious Music.

Pete Astor
Mr. Music

Singer/songwriter and Creation records trailblazer Pete Astor (The Loft, The Weather Prophets, Ellis Island Sound and Wisdom of Harry) has also worked as an A&R manager for the likes of Hefner, Cornershop and Republica. The single ‘Mr. Music’ is the first in a series of releases for Fortuna Pop with Veronica Falls/ Proper Ornaments/Ultimate Painting’s James Hoare.

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-exclusive coloured vinyl) by A Joyful Noise.

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 Attic.

Owl & Mouse
Departures

With the sweet Australian voice of Hannah Botting, Owl & Mouse are treating us to another album. Gentle pop songs emerge from careful orchestrations on Departures, the band featuring an expanded cast of musicians. A great record for when you really need to bury your melancholy. Or for when you like pretty songs, of course.

Hannah Peel
Rebox 2

Rebox is the title that Hannah Peel gives to her series of cover EPs, in which her voice and a small hand-cranked music box are the primary instruments. John Grant, Perfume Genius, East India Youth and Wild Beasts provide the songs covered on Rebox 2, the set rounded out by a few original instrumentals. On My Own Pleasure.

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. This constitutes pretty potent material, although to his credit Shubaly ensure the record is not a one-note affair, often as comic as it is tragic.

Paul Weller
Going My Way

Going My Way is a single taken from Paul Weller’s latest album, Saturn’s Pattern, jaunting along between tender quiet piano-led parts and bouncier bits. He even gets a small choir to join in towards the end. The B-side, ‘I Spy’, is exclusive to this release, not appearing on the album. 7” with a big star on the front , from Parlophone.

Frank Turner
Positive Songs For Negative People

Positive Songs For Negative People is album number six from singer/songwriter Frank Turner. Once again he is backed by his trusty sidekicks The Sleeping Souls. He recorded the album in Nashville with producer Butch Walker at the controls. Like his best work, Turner tells tales of people winning against all odds using his forthright anthemic style.

Mumford & Sons
Sigh No More

Released back when Marcus Mumford And His Merrie Men were but a group of humble poshos from West London, little did we know that Sigh No More would go on to become such an all-consuming cultural phenomenon. You know the score by now - Sigh No More is full of banjo-twanging and tub-thumping and all sorts of fiddle-dee-dee japery. It is Jacob Rees-Mogg in sound.

Areski / Brigitte Fontaine
Je Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme

Superior Viaduct dropping another vintage '70s reissue, this time Je Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme (I do not know this man). The 42 year old collaboration between Areski and Brigitte Fontaine represents the French avant-garde at its finest, using haunting vocal harmonies and sparse instrumentation to create a time and space machine into a strange fantasy world.

Remembering Mountains : Unheard Songs By Karen Dalton

Tragically, Karen Dalton was never given the chance to record any of her own songs, instead lending her amazing voice to the songs of others. For Remembering Mountains: Unheard Songs, her lyrics have been lent to an incredible roster of female voices, including Laurel Halo, Sharon Van Etten and Josephine Foster. On Tompkins Square.

Current 93
Black Ships Heat The Dancefloor

The tracks are destined, as the title suggests, strictly for the dancefloor - from the hard industrial cyber slabs of Foetus’s reworkings to Matmos’s more house-based interpretations.

Lady Lamb
After

Staying up til morning to record her first self-released albums, Aly Spaltro, better known as Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, writes songs that are clearly influenced by the night time. With her emotional lyrics and singing and gentle guitar playing, she has filled After with haunting songs that will stay with you. Even after it’s over.

Bill Fay
Who Is The Sender?

Bill Fay rose from his career slumber with the triumphant Life Is People, a record of intimate songs about love, loss and the resolve of faith, played mostly on piano with supplementary arrangements that recalled the records he'd made years before. Thankfully it wasn't a victory lap or a one-off redemption story: Who Is The Sender? is its follow-up, and continues to wrestle with his deeply humanist but equally spiritual ideals.

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.

Trembling Bells
The Sovereign Self

Their fifth album in six years, The Sovereign Self by Trembling Bells continues down the traditionalist path that the band ploughs so well. From motorik kraut to wig-out prog and freak-folk it’s a heady stew of influences, twisting and turning at every step. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Tin Angel.

Daniel Romano
If I've Only One Time Askin'

Daniel Romano performs music that is fairly indebted to country, though it has feet in a few other genre-pies. Romano’s rich baritone leads it all onwards, singing of pain and heartbreak, naturally. If I’ve Only One Time Askin’ is also rich in arrangements, delicate fiddle and surges of brass rearing up from time to time. On New West.

Aero Flynn

Josh Scott, the brains behind the operation of Aero Flynn, has been back and forth on his willingness to put his music out there in the world for years. Thankfully for an adoring public however, he has been persuaded by co-producer and friend Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), and this debut is a highly capable wash of ethereal tunes. Red vinyl!

Hypoxia

Williams draws on the sonic textures of her 2011 release ‘The Pond’ whilst bringing a few new flavours to the table such as the glam rock guitars that emerge in the single ‘Mirrors’.

Sufjan Stevens
Carrie & Lowell

Sufjan Stevens left behind the folk game a long time ago, declaring his plan to write fifty records for fifty states a mere joke -- a sentiment that failed to wash away the beauty of the ornately composed Michigan and the pantomimic Illinoise. In the years since, he's been writing song cycles dedicated to the solar system, conducting orchestras in tributes to American highways, making fun of people on his blog and releasing records that betray deep existential crises -- All Delighted People and the synth-mad Age of Adz. He returns now with Carrie & Lowell, a record which promises a retracing of footsteps, back to the days when Stevens was about acoustic guitars, banjos and soft sadness. It's dedicated to his mum and step-dad. Argh. Crying.

Abyss

Chelsea Wolfe uses her fifth album to plumb the depths of the subconscious, via the medium of music that alternates between her intimate, close mic-ed murmurs and crashing heavy rock action. There is a strong sense of purpose in Abyss’ brutal contrasts: Wolfe has made a very good record here. On Sargent House.

Josephine Foster & The Victor Herrero Band
Anda Jaleo / Perlas

This release on the Fire label gathers together two remarkable-sounding records from Josephine Foster & The Victor Herrero Band, first released separately a couple of years ago. The songs were written by Lorca in the 20’s, and Foster does an incredible job of making them sound both true to their history and full of life.
