M. Ward
More Rain

M. Ward has produced a lot of excellent music over the years, as a solo artist, with Zooey Deschanel as She & Him, and with members of My Morning Jacket and Bright Eyes as Monsters of Folk. Some heritage eh? He consequently dives into More Rain with confidence, producing a strong suite of uptempo songs. On Bella Union.

Låpsley
Long Way Home

Lapsley is the solo project of one Holly Fletcher, a highly-capable singer and producer of mournful neo-synth-soul. Long Way Home documents some of the wild changes that have resulted from the success of previous albums. This personal touch carries through every aspect of Long Way Home, as Lapsley largely self-produces. On XL Recordings.

Josephine Foster
No More Lamps In The Morning

The basically incomparable Josephine Foster is back with No More Lamps in the Morning on CD and vinyl LP. Her gorgeous and strange voice dominates these recordings, which are blend of new material and unusual covers of her own work. Her poetry is combined with that of James Joyce and Rudyard Kipling and accompanied by guitars and cellos that are both beautiful and dissonant.

Lontalius
I'll Forget 17

It isn’t too easy getting attention in the music business when you are 18 years old and living in New Zealand, but Eddie Johnston aka Lontalius seems to have managed it, with attention paid by Ryan Hemsworth, Lorde and the Red Bull Music Academy. I’ll Forget 17 is a melancholic set of songs with lashings of electronics. On Partisan Records.

Bonnie "Prince" Billy & The Cairo Gang
The Wonder Show Of The World

Bonnie Prince Billy's eighth album, recorded in partnership with guitarist Emmet Kelly (who wrote the music whilst Will Oldham penned the lyrics). Oldham is famously picky when it comes to collaborators, and this partnership is a perfect mix of talents. Less country folk than his previous releases, and a bit more dour, but nonetheless as brilliant as ever. Available on CD, cassette or vinyl.

Quilt
Plaza

Quilt craft a careful, sensitive set of tracks here on Plaza, working in the mould of luscious, string-section-augmented, folk-pop-rock. It sounds like the output of some relaxed 1970’s Californians, in the best way possible. The band’s third album, Plaza is released by Mexican Summer, with an indie-store-exclusive option of clear vinyl.

Don Cavalli
De Profundis

Sold out - sorry!

Lily & Madeleine
Keep It Together

Sisters Lily & Madeleine make a laid-back folk with jazzy edges and on Keep it Together have drawn together all the elements of their past releases. Their songwriting is strong and their dual vocals are charming. The pair have released on Sufjan Stevens label and his sound a good reference point too. This album is released by New West.

Steve Mason
Meet The Humans

Steve Mason of the Beta Band recorded this album with Craig Potter, best known as the producer and chap on the keyboards for Elbow. The follow up to Mason's ‘double political concept album’ ‘Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time’ this is a more straightforward and accessible undertaking. Taking in influences from the re-invigorated deep house scene, pop, dub as well as folk it's central themes are optimism, joy and hope. Released on 180g Vinyl or digipak CD versions.

Aurora
All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend

Decca release the debut of singer songwriter Aurora. On All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend, her ambitious and dark songs are grounded in big, complex arrangements of horns, synths and plenty of other diverse instruments. She also sang the intimate Oasis cover from the 2015 John Lewis Christmas ad.

Giorgio Tuma
This Life Denied Me Your Love

On the surface Giorgio Tuma makes a pleasant and acoustic folk-blues with plenty of lovely harmonies and finger-picking. But on This Life Denied Me Your Love there are synthesizers, orchestral arrangements and gorgeous choral vocals as well, fleshing out his lovely songcraft in the best possible way.

Laura J Martin
On The Never Never

Laura J Martin is from Liverpool, and her music is grounded with a strong sense of feeling for the place. This remains true on On The Never Never, despite the fact that the record was recorded in Nashville, with a band that includes members of Silver Jews and The Jesus Lizard. Released by Shape Records.

The Owl Service
His Pride. No Spear. No Friend.

The Owl Service return after six years away, loaded with nine new tracks in their idiosyncratic style. For His Pride. No Spear. No Friend., they take traditional sounding folk songs and play them very differently, inspired by post-hardcore and post-rock. Sounds bizarre, but they really make it work. Unwound play Fairport Convention anyone? Out on Horn Records.

It Calls On Me

It Calls On Me is the second solo album by Doug Tuttle. It follows on from his 2013 eponymous debut and his work with New Hampshire psych-rock outfit Mmoss, a band who shared members with Woods. On It Calls On Me, Tuttle leaves behind the anxious, unrequited love themes of his debut and concentrates on delivering some delicious, hazy psych-pop. Available as limited indies only coloured vinyl, standard vinyl and CD, on Trouble In Mind.

Annabel (lee)
If Music presents: By the sea... and other solitary places

If Music is a tiny room of a record store in London Town, someone’s front room rather than a shop, it’s a great, welcoming place so do check it out. Here they present By The Sea… And Other Solitary Places by Annabel (lee). It’s a dark folk album with classical instrumentation and Annabel’s whispered vocals chillingly crawling across the sweeping instrumentation. For fans of Jessica Pratt, Julie Byrne and Cat’s Eyes.

Eric Bachmann
Eric Bachmann

You know Eric Bachmann from his time in Archers of Loaf and Crooked Fingers, but this solo record finds him breaking away from his typical character-based approach for a series of personal songs written around the piano. ‘Mercy’ even has a damn gospel choir. This self-titled new record is a bold step forwards. Released by Merge.

Loretta Lynn
Full Circle

Loretta Lynn is a beloved country and western superstar, but she is also an incredibly talented songwriter and arranger. On Full Circle, her first album in a decade, the 83-year old's songs of loss and heartbreak are as sharp as ever. She has also assembled a great band, and the mournful slide guitar, dingy bar piano and energetic fiddle sound lovely.

Emmy The Great
Second Love

Second Love is the third album by English singer/songwriter Emmy The Great. The title suggests a connection with her debut album, First Love on which she showed a gift for stirring the emotions with her storytelling. On Second Love, Emmy The Great balances the warmth of human nature with an awareness of the new technological age. Second Love was produced by Dave McCracken, whose production credits include Beyonce, Deus and Ian Brown, along with Swedish songwriter and producer Ludwig Goransson. Tom Fleming from Wild Beasts makes a guest appearance too. On Bella Union.

Pete Aves
See How

See How is the first album by ex-High Llama’s guitarist Pete Aves since 2007’s You, Me & Bill WIthers which garnered favourable reviews from Uncut magazine. Pete’s ability as a songwriter have been shaped and informed by life-changing experiences of the past decade: Getting divorced, being homeless, hitting the big 5-0 and being a father of two. He flirts with folk, country and pop and has drawn comparisons to Squeeze, Stephen Duffy and Kevin Rowland. Whilst not making his own music, his guitar mastery has meant that he is an in-demand session player. He has worked with Lee Hazlewood, Petula Clark, Shirley Collins and...er….Harry Hill.

Bert Jansch
Moonshine

Bert Jansch records are always worth hearing, and this 1973 album is certainly no exception. Moonshine finds Jansch in a particularly traditional mode, and includes the likes of Ralph McTell as guests. This reissue is especially worth it for the amazing design of this release: the circular sleeve artwork has been transferred to the record itself as a picture disc!

Out on Fortuna Pop.

Bitchin Bajas and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy is back, and he’s brought some pals along too. Bitchin Bajas make an experimental din of synthesizers and horns and together they make Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties a strange and fascinating collaboration. This vinyl LP, CD or cassette is a gleeful combination of minimalism and lyricism.

Emma Pollock
In Search of Harperfield

It has taken nearly six years but Emma Pollock has finally followed up her marvellous album The Law Of Large Numbers with  In Search of Harperfield. The album nods in the direction of great female artists such as Kate Bush, Sandy Denny, Dusty Springfield and Kristin Hersh whilst Emma’s vocals recall the talents of Annie Lennox and Siouxsie Sioux. Emma’s songwriting ability and gift for melody set her apart from the pack. The album was produced by fellow ex-Delgado Paul Savage. In Search of Harperfield will please fans of The Delgados and is already regarded as one of the best albums in the Chemikal Underground cannon.

Miranda Lee Richards
Echoes of the Dreamtime

Produced by Rick Parker (Dandy Warhols, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) ‘Echoes Of The Dreamtime’ is the third studio album by American psyche-folk, singer songwriter Miranda Lee Richards. Having picked up a few songs on guitar from Kirk Hammett, Richards went on to work with the likes of Joe Firstman, Suzanne Vega, Tim Burgess, Tricky, Good Listeners and the Jesus and Mary Chain as well as being a member of the Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Bonnie Prince Billy
Pond Scum

Pond Scum by Bonnie Prince Billy is a compilation put together from the Peel Session archives. This collection spans an eight year period and includes versions of classics such as Death To Everyone and (I Was Drunk At The) Pulpit. The arrangements are much more sparse than the originals as Bonnie Prince Billy performs mostly solo, although there is accompaniment from Dave Heumann on four of the tracks.

Steven James Adams
Old Magick

Steven James Adams made his name in Broken Family Band, but now singer-songwriters solo. Old Magick is his second solo record, a melodic and thoughtful outing. Personnel on the record includes members of The Drink, but Old Magick finds Adams stripping things down a bit compared to his solo debut. CD or 180g LP on Fortuna POP!

Mount Moriah
How To Dance

Mount Moriah are back with a third album, ready to teach you How To Dance. Heather McEntire and her crew play Southern-tinged rock with firm riffs and excellent vocal harmonies, plus proper low-slung groove skills. Guest vocals come from Angel Olsen, Mirah Zietlyn and Amy Ray of Indigo Girls. Released by Merge.

Carter Tanton
Jettison The Valley

The second solo work from ex-Tulsa frontman Carter Tanton. The gorgeous folk and pop songs on Jettison the Valley were all written whilst Tanton was visiting England and he also recruited Marisa Nadler and Sharon Van Etten to lend him some vocals. These beautifully arranged and orchestrated songs range from simple folk ditties to ornate pop songs.

Marlon Williams
Marlon Williams

Marlon Williams hails from New Zealand, where he has won awards for this, his debut full-length album. Marlon Williams showcases the man’s sensitive baritone with dramatic cover songs picked out from decades of narratively-engaging hits. LP and CD editions, with a special coloured vinyl edition exclusive to independent retailers. On Dead Oceans.

Michael Nau
Mowing

On the surface Michael Nau is a singer-songwriter. He has a charming honeyed croon and plays a range of instruments. But the little pop songs and experiments on Mowing are far too strange to just call him that. Weird arrangements, oddball samples and a general air of catchy eccentricity make this extremely distinctive.

Ben Abraham
Sirens

Born in Melbourne, this indie-folk artist has been quietly refining his delicate songwriting in the build-up to his debut, Sirens.

Available on double vinyl LP or CD.

Ralegh Long
Hoverance

‘Hoverance’  is English singer/songwriter Ralegh Long’s debut album on the London based Gare Du Nord records. Heavily influenced by seventies folk songwriters such as Nick Drake and Laura Nyro and the pastoral English countryside surroundings Young looked out over across his piano as he wrote the album, ‘Hoverance’ is an intimate composition of rich instrumental arrangements awash with deep longing and heartbreaking piano tones. Featuring contributions from artists such as Tom Dougall (TOY), Jack Hayter (Hefner), Louis-Phillipe (El records, The Clientele) and indie-pop orchestra A Little Orchestra.

The High Llamas
Here Come The Rattling Trees

Whilst lamenting the new direction of The High Llamas on a regular cycle around his particular corner of South-East London, Sean O’Hagan decided to give the next album a narrative structure. Because of this, he also decided that the story within the songs must be performed as a play first. And that’s exactly what happened. Here Come The Rattling Trees has been performed in several places in London throughout 2014 and now the album, which is full of typically intelligent, soft and melodic moments, is available for you to enjoy. Lyrically, it has a story arc that focuses on Amy. Amy meets several characters who, in turn, tell their own story. CD and LP on Drag City.

Francoise Hardy
Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour

The legendary Francoise Hardy is pretty much the sonic epitome of 1960’s French cool, and Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour is only her second record, but her self-penned songs already sound perfectly Hardy. A sleek set of recordings, carefully remastered and reissued on 180g vinyl reissue by Light In The Attic and Future Days Recordings.

Francoise Hardy
L'Amitie

Jim Ghedi
Home is Where I Exist, Now to Live and Die

Solo guitarist Jim Ghedi built up the material for Home Is Where I Exist, Now To Live And Die while travelling through Northern Europe, and the restlessness and the exposure to different lives that travel brings is all audibly present here on this record. Ghedi’s traditional folk sensibility plus influences from Eastern Europe and beyond equal a captivating set of pieces. On Cambrian Records.

Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts
Manhattan

New record from Jeffrey Lewis, with backing band Los Bolts (which seems to contain most of the usual Lewis regulars). Manhattan has more intimately observed stories about interesting New York characters, sung and played with his usual upbeat bounce. Lewis’ own beautiful comic-style illustrations provide the artwork. On Rough Trade.

Freakwater
Scheherazade

Freakwater do make country music, but they only do it on their own terms. So that means subtle harmonies from the two singers, delicate bass playing from Dave Grey and a blend of bluegrass, folk and blues. Scheherazade is their first album in a decade and has been put out by Bloodshot on vinyl LP and CD.
