Nicholas Krgovich
On Sunset

Nicholas Krgovich can't decide whether to bow at the Americana altar or give it up for synth pop, and so his song-writing prowess lies between the two, recalling traditional folk songwriters as much as he does artists such as Prefab Sprout and the Dirty Projectors. His new record, 'On Sunset', is a love letter to Los Angeles, and was produced by friend and helper of Canadian superheroes the New Pornographers. Expect something colourful and ornate.

Lucinda Williams
Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone

Alt country star Lucinda Williams returns with 'Down Where The Spirit Meets Bone', being released on her very own label, Highway 20. A sprawling double-disc record, 'Down' features twenty tunes, including collaborations with Williams' own father (who wrote a poem for the record) and Jakob Dylan, the son of that other Highway guy.

Mark Fry
South Wind, Clear Sky

Psych folk troubadour Mark Fry hasn't done much beyond releasing his lightning-in-a-barrel classic 'Dreaming With Alice', which showed a young artist create a quite epic record of beautifully ornamented folk music. In 2008, Fry made something of a Vashti Bunyan move, returning to release his second record 'Shooting The Moon' after years and years out of sight and mind. 'South Wind, Clear Sky' is the follow-up to that record, offering up yet more wistful folk songs which get their power from Fry's omniscient, assured vocal delivery.

Joan Shelley
Electric Ursa

Plaintive folk, anyone? Joan Shelley's plucked tunes aren't innovative, but they breathe new light into old traditions. 'Electric Ursa' brings together her compelling voice, which sounds a little like Lotte Kestner -- and sometimes recalls the lower end of Joni Mitchell's register -- with strikingly fluid guitar collaborations. 'Electric Ursa', her second solo record, was produced by Kevin Ratterman, who's also worked with the pastoral folk clown Andrew Bird. These songs are meandering, but it's evident they've been painstakingly constructed.

Tweedy
Sukierae

On 'Sukierae', dad rock gets literal: initially set to be his first solo record, Jeff Tweedy enlisted his son Spencer on drums, making the record an ensemble Tweedy affair. The record recalls the light, airy folk rock of latter-day Wilco records, especially 'The Whole Love', while retaining some of their weight and complexity. 'Sukierae' is a wistful and intricate double record from a man who never gets tired of making rock songs.

Peter Escott
The Long O

Peter Escott has been carefully learning and unlearning the piano since childhood; recorded an unknown number of self-released, increasingly intricate and discordant instrumental piano CD-Rs,  added a fairly serviceable singing voice to his playing on his let's-try-something-that-might-make-sense-to-people debut Slowcoach (independently released, 2008); then, to his own astonishment on top of everyone else's, made a sudden anxiety-defying shift from shy retirer to flamboyant frontman with compact, concise bass-and-machines duo The Native Cats, who have thrilled crowds from Gonerfest in Memphis to the Sydney Opera House. And now, like an introvert finding an empty room at a house party, Escott has returned to keeping his own counsel and suffering his own consequences, with his new solo album for Bedroom Suck Records, The Long O. Featuring no other performers and limited to the only instruments he knows how to play - piano, synth, melodica, and a solitary, awkwardly self-taught guitar chord - The Long O is as haunting as it is direct, with Escott's voice lending a reserved gravity to the often soaring arrangements.

Jason Trachtenburg
Let the Fishes Do The Asking EP

This brisk little cassette captures some of Jason Trachtenburg's finest moments as a silly and touching songwriter. These songs were recorded in 1993 and feature raw banjo playing, sweet gang vocals and that high-pitched coo of Tratchenburg's. 'Let The Fishes Do The Asking' is one for fans of anti-folk that recalls Daniel Johnston and Jeffrey Lewis, as well as those who love quick, in-and-out pop songs a la Guided By Voices.

Sean Rowe
Madman

Sean Rowe makes elegiac, uplifting folk music with ornate arrangements on guitar and piano, supplemented with Wilco-esque soft drumming and his own soft, deep voice. 'Madman' is his latest record for Anti Records, and focuses less on knotty lyricism than it does on simple, cyclical songs that become more layered over time. It makes for a hypnotic and trippy kind of gentle folk music.

Smoke Dawson
Fiddle

That Vanessa Mae- I'd let her have a fiddle. Boom and indeed vaguely sexist boom. Start with a joke and run as fast as you can to the end. This is a re-issue of Smoke Dawson's 1971 private press (yawn) LP. Leader George Dawson was a bagpipe and fiddle player roaming around the US with nary a care in the world. There's a vaguely...no not vaguely, very Scottish feel to the music on offer. The kind of exhubrant fiddle playing you hear in pubs in remote Scottish villages. This was his sole album and the label did awfully well in tracking the record down but the question has to be asked........why?

Honig
It's Not A Hummingbird, It's Your Father’s Ghost

Of course! What on earth made you think it was a hummingbird? After having played 300 concerts in two years this loose group of friends and musicians have tightened up into a rocking five piece line up to create a sophisticated and complex album. Not your normal singer-y songwriter-y effort by any stretch of the imagination. They are moving slowly towards the bigger stages, bigger arrangements, more people in the audience, an extra packet of peanuts on the rider. Led by one Stefan Honig they have gained plaudits from far and wide including one Justion Vernon. "You can be happy to have such a talented musician in your city" -he squeaked at a recent concert. Bright Eyes fans - take note.

The Travelling Band
The Big Defreeze

Manchester, so much to answer for etc. The Travelling Band construct rootsy country folk rock stuff that will appeal to the more beardy-weirdy , foot-tapping thoughtful type who likes their music thoroughly authentic, retro and earnest. There's harmonies and tunes galore and no doubt some ballads too. The guitars have been commented on elsewhere as being "twangy". I do like the sleeve collage a lot so just buy the vinyl which has the CD included anyway.

Robyn Hitchcock
The Man Upstairs

Robyn Hitchcock has been prolific in recent years, releasing a slew of singer-songwriter records with the Venus 3, but 'The Man Upstairs' takes on a different tack, billed by Hitchcock and collaborator/producer Joe Boyd as an intimate and varied performance: some of these songs are rock standards reworked, others are obscure favourites Hitchcock has covered, and there are a couple of his own originals in the mix, too. The record took a week to record; it's Hitchcock's sparsest and quickest work in a while, backed only with flourishes of cello, piano and additional vocals.    Tracks: The Ghost In You San Francisco Patrol To Turn You On Trouble In Your Blood Somebody To Break Your Heart Don’t Look Down Ferries Comme Toujours The Crystal Ship Recalling The Truth

Michael Chapman
Live At Folk Cottage, Cornwall 1967

Michael Chapman is a house name in the UK's folk underground scene, having collaborated with acts as renowned as Hiss Golden Messenger, with whom he has recently made a split record. 'Live At Folk Cottage' unearths his earliest recordings, taken from a 1967 live show in Cornwall. Chapman was oblivious to the recordings existence, calling the Treehouse 44 release of the record something he "had no idea [he] had made!". These early songs have hints of Chapman's blues influence, but also take on more standard covers, such as a cover of Buddy Holly's "That'll Be The Day". Apparently, Tree House have left the original recordings well alone, except for occasionally re-tuning the guitar, so you don't have to.

Erland & The Carnival
Closing Time

When unassuming young Orkney music-maker Erland Cooper picked up his guitar and travelled the length of the country to play a show in London’s Notting Hill, little did he know that a chance encounter with musical veteran Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good The Bad & The Queen, and Gorillaz) would be the start of a unique songwriting friendship. Together they formed Erland & The Carnival and now, nearly a decade later, arrives Closing Time - the band’s third, most accomplished album yet. Opening a new chapter, Closing Time is an understated, inward looking collection of songs that feature stunning string arrangements and Erland’s impassioned vocals at centre stage.  Recorded in Damon Albarn’s studio13 with previous Erland & The Carnival engineer Steve Sedgewick and mixed by London Grammar producer Tim Bran, despite creating more than 40 songs in the process of writing the album (“Some of the song melodies and ideas on this may have even been written when I was 21 to be honest. ‘Sometimes’ certainly was,” admits Erland), it was a brilliantly spontaneous and productive time taking just over 3 days to come to fruition.

Happy Jawbone Family Band
Happy Jawbone Family Band

Eighth album from Vermont mentalists The Happy Jawbone Band. The band have generally released home-recorded stuff up to now, and there was a lot of it. Previous album 'Taste the Broom' was a sort of compilation, whittled down to nine songs out of the hundreds these guys have recorded. Here though, they've been into a proper recording studio and you can tell. Crisper and a bit more polished, but no less fun. Available on vinyl or CD.

Lo-fi and Morphine-esque, with various guests including The Swell Season's Marketa Irglova. Available on CD or vinyl.

Bob Carpenter
Silent Passage

The late Bob Carpenter finished working on 'Silent Passage' in 1974, but thanks to a contract headache on Warner Records' behalf, it wasn't released until 1984, by which time Carpenter was no longer active in the country rock scene. The record is a sinister personal collection of songs performed with Carpenter's rusty and unforgiving vocals at the front, giving the record a vibe as unsettling as a Vic Chesnutt record, but fashioned after old country traditions. Carpenter influenced folk artists as significant as Emmylou Harris and Billy Joe Shaver, who went on to cover his songs long after he'd given up on them.    Tracks: Miracle Man Silent Passage Old Friends First Light Morning Train The Believer Gypsy Boy Down Along The Border Before My Time Now And Then

Benjamin Booker
Benjamin Booker

Guitarist and songwriter Benjamin Booker makes stripped down garage rock that goes back to the most basic elements; he's backed up only with drums from Max Norton, and makes rapid, blink-and-you'll-miss-them rock songs that feel like they last as long as Robert Pollard makes them. Booker claims to be influenced by old school punk bands like Gun Club and T. Rex, although when he throws in a solo, his sound is also reflective of Rough Trade alumni the Strokes and newer garage professors like Ty Seagall. His self-titled debut is well-produced raucousness.  Tracks: Violent Shiver Always Waiting Chippewa Slow Coming Wicked Waters Have You Seen My Son? Spoon Out My Eyeballs Happy Homes I Thought I Heard You Scream Old Hearts Kids Never Growing Older By The Evening

Splintered Man
Splintered Man

There's a certain Mark Eitzel melancholy at heart in the work of Splintered Man. They consist of Simon Kobayashi and Alex Carter. Simon being the singer/guitarist and Alex playing guitar and doing some back up. There's a host of other people involved including Jon Clayton who produced the thing. This will definitely appeal to fans of Mark Kozelek, Smog and the aforementioned Mark Eitzel/American Music Club axis. Tracks: 1. Stay By My Side2. Dartford Tunnel3. I'll Get Back To You4. Home To No Home5. Oh My6. A Quiet Life7. Patient Song8. Parent Song9. There Was A Love10. I Think The Shape Of Your Head11. You Corrupted Me

Tom Kovacevic
Universe Thin As Skin

You might have already come across the music of Tom Kovacevic in his bands Fire On Fire, Cerberus Shoal, Olas and Tarpigh, but here he's going it alone with a series of eerie mystical folk songs which draws on Kovacevic's experience studying Arabic music, employing the oud, nay flute, and djembe and tchung drums to provide a sparse earthy backdrop to his clear, plangent voice.

Luluc
Passerby

In a world where instant gratification is the norm, patience has become a rare commodity. For Zoë Randell and Steve Hassett, who make up indie-folk duo Luluc (pronounced Loo-LUKE), letting things unfold in due time not only defines their career trajectory, it also works as a pretty good description of their approach to making music. Music that Sub Pop co-founder Jonathan Poneman describes as “bracing, subtle, tender and magnificent.” So while it may seem like Randell and Hassett’s history is littered with all kinds of good luck - from their initial meeting to their relationship with The National’s Aaron Dessner to opening slots with artists like Lucinda Williams, Fleet Foxes and José Gonzàlez; to their deal with Sub Pop; to grabbing the attention of Nick Drake’s producer - being in the right place at the right time isn’t just about fate. It’s about knowing when something feels right and having the confidence that people will respond when they’re ready. There’s no question that everything these Australians (who split their time between Melbourne and their adopted hometown of Brooklyn) have done in their lives has been leading up to this summer’s ‘Passerby’, their second album overall and first available worldwide.  Co-produced by the band and Dessner, ‘Passerby’ shows off all of Luluc’s best qualities, retaining the gentle beauty of the duo’s debut while adding textures built with a cadre of impressive players. It’s the trophy celebrating Luluc’s airtight case that good things really do come to those who wait. The wait is over. The world is ready to hear Luluc quiet and clear. The LP includes MP3 coupon.

Trampled by Turtles
Wild Animals

Formed in Duluth, MN in 2003, Trampled by Turtles is Simonett, Tim Saxhaug (bass, vocals), Dave Carroll (banjo, vocals), Erik Berry and Ryan Young (fiddle). Within the contained music scene of Duluth, the members of the band did their own time in punk and rock bands brandishing their electricity proudly before switching to acoustic instruments. While they never set out to be a bluegrass band, Trampled by Turtles employs many of the same traditional techniques of the genre, but their differences in influences and attack make for their unique sound.

The Fugitives
Everything Will Happen

Vancouver’s news and entertainment website Georgia Straight once described The Fugitives as “the missing link between Leonard Cohen and the Pogues”. Formed by the eclectically talented Brendan McLeod (a award winning novelist and former Canadian SLAM poetry champion) and Adrian Glynn (a critically acclaimed actor most recently in the Leonard Cohen inspired play Chelsea Hotel), the two are frontmen and co-songwriters who create the backbone of the songs. They then invite friends to collaborate, fleshing out The Fugitives sound to its multi-instrumented, full bodied finish.

His voice, we discover, is distinctive and unexpectedly strong. This accompanying album was recorded in his living room.

The Felice Brothers
Favorite Waitress

Technically, this is the tenth album by Catskill mountain-dwelling troubadours The Felice Brothers. Earlier releases, such as 2007's Tonight at the Arizona and the excellent 2008 eponymous record, were raw and ramshackle, with satisfying glitches in the recording (such as, where lightning hit the chicken coop they were recording in) and fuzzy, raucous live performances. Since then, their sound has inevitably become more polished, and 2014's Favorite Waitress is a much more considered affair. Blips and rawness aside, the songwriting does shine through. Double vinyl gatefold, limited stock.

Sufjan Stevens
Greetings From Michigan

The time Sufjan first came to some kind of international prominence was with this wonderful sprawl of a record that was the first of his supposed 50 albums about US states. That didn't happen but this and Illinois were more than enough. Intricate, literate song craft, beautiful folk melodies and my favourite lyric of all time "and I've seen my wife, at the K-Mart, in strange ideas, we live apart".

Lavender Country
Lavender Country

Lavender Country is the first openly gay country album. This is quite a feat when you consider the conservative nature of the Nashville scene, even more of a courageous statement when you consider that it was originally released in 1973. The record documents the experiences of singer, songwriter and guitarist Patrick Haggerty who was an indomitable gay activist. Lavender Country is available on vinyl LP and CD.

Chris Connelly
Forgiveness & Exile

The Scottish singer-songwriter drifts ever further from his industrial roots (Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Pigface) with this song cycle concerning the experiences of immigrants in the United States. The album nevertheless retains the confrontational realism characteristic of industrial music, with Connelly turning an unflinching eye on painful reality, even as he swathes the songs in dark blue atmospheres with the aid of co-producers Ben Vida (Town & Country, Bird Show) and Tim Kinsella. Features guest contributions from Current 93 founder and Durtro boss David Tibet and Garbage’s Shirley Manson among others.

Bill Fay
Tomorrow Tomorrow & Tomorrow

Made available once again by longtime fan David Tibet’s Durtro/Jnana imprint, Tomorrow, Tomorrow & Tomorrow was intended as the third Bill Fay album following semi-legendary apocalyptic folk template Time Of The Last Persecution (1971). Nevertheless, it remained unreleased until 2005. It’s a low-key, contemplative affair which finds wayward talent Fay backed by Gary Smith (guitar), Rauf Galip (bowed bass) and Bill Stratton (drums) who fold in elements of jazz and progressive rock alongside the songwriter's characteristically open-hearted vocals and lyricism.

Peter Jefferies
The Last Great Challenge In A Dull World

Reissue of New Zealand singer / songwriter Peter Jefferies' brilliant debut album 'The Last Great Challenge in a Dull World'. Originally released in 1990, the album received some critical acclaim before disappearing into the ether. But it was just too good to remain forgotten. Incredibly strong songwriting, demonstrated no better than with the single, 'The Fate of the Human Carbine' which was covered by Cat Power. Available on CD or vinyl.

Geraint Watkins
Moustique

Geraint Watkins is an old-school kind of songwriter: he often hangs out with Nick Lowe, that kind of crowd. Moustique is his fifth album as a solo artist, and provides a smooth, warm sound, the kind that might fit snugly into the background of a nice living room. Available on LP or CD, from Gold Top.

Randolph's Leap
Clumsy Knot

Glasgow-based Randolph's Leap is basically home recording geek Adam Ross, who, like Snow White, is occasionally assisted by seven musical helpers. By day, he works in a cafe on a wind farm and by night he tinkers away making up songs about coffee shops and running away to live in the woods. Folkie indie goodness, on wholesome vinyl or nasty modern age compact disc.

Paul Thomas Saunders
Beautiful Desolation

Paul Thomas Saunders brings us a debut album steeped in a complex and layered sound. The emerging singer songwriter’s vision is clearly shaped by the sounds of the '90s – one would imagine he was heavily hit by the cosmic that Jeff Buckley’s Grace left – yet this album is more than a pastiche. This work is a collection of ethereal and heartfelt songs that realise a mature sounding record that sees past its younger years.

Johnny Cash
Out Among The Stars

This posthumous collection delves deep into Johnny Cash's recording career to find twelve new tunes: most of them are covers or versions of folk and country standards, though there are also a couple of Cash originals on here, such as "Call Your Mother" and "I Came to Believe". The music of 'Out Among the Stars' was dug up by Cash's son John Carter Cash and stands as Cash's very own lost record.
