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.

Peter Walker
Live at Third Man Records

Jack White's appetite for live albums continues to grow as he releases yet another album of a person doing a thing in his studio which White then boasts about through the medium of 12". Here the great Peter Walker pays his debts to his favourite artists -- John Fahey and Robbie Basho, and all who could turn a guitar exercise into a beautiful American landscape. It's called Live At Third Man Records as I think about five thousand records now are.

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.  
  • Genre(s):

Lydia Lunch & Cypress Grove / Spiritual Front
Twin Horses

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. The resulting ‘Twin Horses’ is an intensely soulful musical bonding between the sensual, cathartic folk of Simone Salvatori and the down beat, acoustic blues of Lydia Lunch.

Britain's most successful family project since the start of the monarchy has plugged in their acoustics and completed the transfer to rock.

Elvis Perkins
I Aubade

The third album from folk artist Elvis Perkins has Coen brothers soundtrack written all over it and that’s no bad thing. I Aubade features a lush blend of strings and vocal harmonies whilst retaining the subtle intimacy of Bonnie Prince Billy records. Distinctly North American in tone. Out on CD and vinyl LP from MIR.

Sea of Bees
Build a Boat To The Sun

Sea Of Bees a.k.a Julie Ann Bee follows her confident first two albums with a positive, major key effort Build A Boat To The Sun.

Sharon Van Etten
I Don't Want To Let You Down EP

One of those nice, tidy little clear-up releases from Sharon Van Etten here on Jagjaguwar. I Don’t Want To Let You Down follows up her Are We There album from last year with five tracks not on that album, forming a rather good little EP, with all the Van Etten hallmarks pleasingly pleasant. 12” or CD.

Daughn Gibson
Carnation

Co-produced and recorded at Avast Studios in Seattle by Daughn Gibson and Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Jesse Sykes, Tim Hecker, ‘Carnation’ is the third album from singer songwriter Daughn Gibson. While carrying elements of the country music influence of Gibsons first two albums ‘All Hell’ and ‘Me Moan’, ‘Carnation’ is deconstructed by its textural ambience into a much darker vision.

Flo Morrissey
Tomorrow Will Be Beautiful

Flo Morrissey’s press release boasts that she is “causing a stir amongst the hip and cool press”, but don’t let that put you off. Her debut album Tomorrow Will Be Beautiful is convincingly led by her potent voice, suggesting mystery and weighty emotional engagement. Ten tracks, on the Glassnote label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

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.

This Is The Kit
Bashed Out

On 12” Vinyl or CD. Bashed Out is the outcome of This is the Kit collaborating with Aaron Dessner (The National), the results are a sort of hypnotic and gorgeous slowed down crystal clear rock, with that emotional grit that will keep it stuck in the back of your head. A must for fans of The National, Joni Mitchell, Bon Iver, Caught in the Wake Forever.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Baby Dee
I Am A Stick

Baby Dee finds serial percussionist Alex Neilson (Death Shanties, Trembling Bells) and a band also including Joe Carvell, Victor Herrero and Jordan Hunt working with Dee herself, to bring her piano-led songs to higher levels of intimate-but-grandiose odd-cabaret. I Am A Stick is out on Tin Angel Records.

Headland
Cosy EP

Sounding like the end of a long day of sun-soaking, Cosy is filled with gentle surf guitars that keep rolling onto the shore. Headland could be a choice pick for a Late Night Tales mix, but instead it’s a splendid 5 track 12”. Limited to 500 editions worldwide, and on clear vinyl at that. Surf’s up, dude!

Christopher Paul Stelling
Labor Against Waste

‘Labor Against Waste’ is modern day troubadour Christopher Paul Stelling’s debut album following a character building four hundred shows in three years. His melodic, blues influenced finger-picking style carries his dramatic and deeply personal storytelling baritone vocal, accompanied by stomps, claps, french horn, flugelhorn, kettle drums, string quartet, and a chorus from members of the Low Anthem.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Jon DeRosa
Black Halo

The second full-length release from LA-based Jon DeRosa. Having studied under La Monte Young no less and inspired by the positive sunshine vibes of West Coast pop, Black Halo is a collection of shimmering numbers underpinned by DeRosa's classically crooning baritone vocals.

David Kauffman and Eric Caboor
Songs From The Suicide Bridge

Originally released in 1984, Songs from Suicide Bridge is highly overdue for a vinyl reissue. Remastered from the original tapes, the minimalist folk-rock of David Kauffman & Eric Caboor sounds fresh as ever. Their desolate sound comes to its full potential like never before on this 2x45rpm LP, including the necessary exclusive interview and never-before released pictures.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Night Beds
Ivywild

Vinyl and CD on Dead Oceans. Night Beds is the project of Colarado’s Winston Yellen. Following his greatly revered debut in 2013 Ivywild breaks away from the Bon Iver esque alt-country and delves into an equally emotionally wrought electronic and R’n’B infused affair. Just check Tide Teeth, it’s devastating.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Jim O'Rourke
Simple Songs

Let’s be clear, Jim O’Rourke has never stopped putting out records. But it’s been over a decade since he released an album of ‘proper music’ rather than noise/improv/jazz/electroacoustic/drone wonder. But now he’s back on Drag City with an album literally titled Simple Songs! Eight tracks, with lyrics and everything. Be excited.
  • Genre(s):

Kenny Knight
Crossroads

Private press slice of country rock from 1980, released by a man named Kenny Knight. Crossroads is his only LP and has been rescued from obscurity, in the way that these things are, by the Paradise of Bachelors label. Knight has just the right level of resignation in his voice, and some great little arrangements: worth picking up.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Gareth Dickson
Invisible String

Gareth Dickson makes slow-moving acoustic songs and releases them as homespun records. He's performed guitar duties for Vashti Bunyan's live band now and then, suggesting a modest songwriter with a patient mind. There are also hints of an ambient influence in Dickson's work, as he brings in synthwork and manipulates his guitar notes. 'Invisible String' collects together the finest moments in Dickson's tour of Europe from two years ago.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Karin Krog
Don't Just Sing – An Anthology: 1963-1999

Karin Krog is a Scandinavian legend, but a more-or-less unknown in our part of the world. Let’s change that eh? Don’t Just Sing - An Anthology: 1963-1999 collects highlights of a full career of creative, jazz-inflected pop, fronted by Krog’s inventive and highly characteristic vocals. On Light In The Attic.

Juan Wauters
Who Me?

Juan Waters sings and arranges songs that wrap up existentialism (see the title, Who Me?) within a parcel of upbeat melodicism. Waters isn’t afraid to disrupt though, dropping unexpected sonic elements into his tracks, such as audience applause in the middle of ‘She Might Get Shot’. On Captured Tracks.

Pokey LaFarge
Something In The Water

Pokey LaFarge steps into the present with a sound firmly routed in the past, pulling in ragtime, country and a dash of the blues. Something In The Water would be the perfect album for the listener who has already exhausted the back-catalogue of traditional American song but still wants that feel. On Rounder.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

The Deslondes
The Deslondes

Drawing from the rich traditions of Americana, New Orleans band The Deslondes self titled debut album is a meticulously crafted introduction to their unique sound.

Jonah Parzen-Johnson
Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow

Jonah Parzen-Johnson doubles up as a baritone saxophone player and an analogue synth user, and we hear both on Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow, his first album of this kind of material.

  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Patrick Watson
Love Songs For Robots

Love For Robots is Patrick Watson’s fifth album, and his first in several years.

  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Shana Cleveland & The Sandcastles
Oh Man, Cover the Ground

Oh Man, Cover The Ground is a slowly unfolding collection of tracks sprouting up around languid fingerpicked guitar and Shana Cleveland’s wistful voice.

  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Paul de Jong
IF

Paul de Jong, formerly of The Books, releases his very first solo record, and IF is an excellent piece of work. de Jong combines all manner of unusual samples from here and there into curious and catchy wholes, underlaid by his gorgeous string-playing. Fun and lovely, released by the Temporary Residence label.

Live In London - The BBC Recordings

Despite being out of the picture for decades, the music of Judee Sill still has the power to overwhelm and entrance people. Live In London - The BBC Recordings will excite Sill fans, as it brings into circulation some previously unheard recordings from live shows and sessions.

  • Genre(s):

Santiparro
True Prayer

Psych folk in all its fantastical glory from Santiparro.

Circuit Des Yeux
In Plain Speech

Fink
Horizontalism

He with fingers in many pies, from soundtracks to orchestral works, Fink a.k.a Fin Greenall returns with a re-imagining of Hard Believer. Horizontalism is an altogether darker affair pulling no punches in its search for eerie atmospheres. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Ninja Tune imprint R’Coup’D.
  • Genre(s):

Torres
Sprinter

Sprinter is the second album by Torres, AKA Mackenzie Scott. It is the follow up to her 2013 eponymous debut which won critical acclaim from all the right places. The Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter tends towards the darkness with the depth of her lyrical subjects and the way she performs them. Sprinter is likely to launch her into the big time.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Peter Broderick
Colours Of The Night

More stark yet beautiful alt. folk from Peter Broderick. Colours Of The Night is his first album for Bella Union in three years. Although it still sounds very much like Broderick’s body of solo work, it was conceived via a less familiar route. It was recorded in Switzerland with a group of swiss musicians and was produced by Timo Keller, who is known as a hip-hop producer.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Barbarossa
Imager

Barbarossa, aka James Mathé, was once a fully fledged acoustic folkster, working with José González and The Fence Collective. But Imager sees him step fully into a different world, that of electronica. He sounds very at home there (this is a very accomplished record), but the pure songwriting sensibility of his earlier work is still audible. On Memphis Industries.
  • Genre(s):

Luke Haines
Adventures In Dementia A Micro Opera

Indie God Luke Haines latest offering has been dubbed a micro-opera. Adventures In Dementia finds the former Auteurs, Baader Meinhof and Black Box Recorder frontman, together with artist, Scott King spin such bonkers tales as a Mark E.

  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Howling
Sacred Ground

Sacred Ground is all about collaborations. Howling is the culmination of Ry X from The Acid and Frank Wiedemann from Ame and Innervisions. It’s released by Modeselektor’s Monkeytown label and Ninja Tune imprint Counter. If Thom Yorke had recorded for Kompakt it might have turned out as sweetly repetitive as this. Out on coloured vinyl 2LP with download for 5 additional bonus tracks + 6x 12" inlay cards. Also available on vinyl 2LP and CD on Monkeytown x Counter.

The Mountain Goats
Beat The Champ

Wordsmith, genius song-writer, metal enthusiast and all-rounder nerd John Darnielle has released roughly ten billion records as The Mountain Goats, and since transitioning from lo-fi cassette underdog to established folk hero, he's released classics such as Get Lonely and Transcendental Youth, dealing with what it feels like to be hauled up inside your own head, even when there's a world of stories out there. Beat The Champ is a concept album based around pro-wrestling, because of course, and it comes swiftly after the release of his debut novel, so promises narrative prowess of the highest.
  • Genre(s):

Villagers
Darling Arithmetic

Darling Arithmetic is the third studio album from Villagers.

  • Genre(s):

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. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

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. 
  • Genre(s):

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.

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.
  • Genre(s):

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

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.     
  • Genre(s):
  • Folk / Country / Singer-songwriter

Josh Rouse
The Embers Of Time

Available on either 12” vinyl or CD from Yep Roc. Josh Rouse seems to manage to create a unique take on country folk, adding a little bit of joy and tongue-in-cheekness. So you get his Bob Dylan esque confession filled vocals surrounded by playful pop like arrangements. For fans of Glen Campbell, Ryan Adams.

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.

Nic Hessler
Soft Connections

Optimistic and introspective, Nic Hessler’s ‘Soft Connections’ record was a long term labour of love and growth for the musical self explorer on the brink of a personal breakthrough. The thoughtfully crafted songs are a pilgrimage towards purpose and direction, a soundtrack to your own personal coming of age movie or failed romance.

Tobias Jesso Jr.
Goon

Despite what you might think, Goon is not entirely self-referential. Tobias Jesso Jr. plays the piano, backed up by an orchestral arrangement that brings out the finest subtleties in this kid’s compositions. The record is filled with sweet and introspective pop songs that will comfort you while you drink your hot chocolate and its raining outside.
