David Ivar/ Herman Dune
Novascotia Runs For Gold

Karen Dalton
In My Own Time

Karen Dalton was part of the Greenwich Village folk scene of the 1960s and was a favourite of Bob Dylan and Fred Neil. She also played with Tim Hardin from time to time and was one of the first to cover his song “Reason to Believe”. She died in 1993. “In My Own Time” was originally released in 1971 and showcases h...view item »

David Vandervelde
Waiting For The Sunrise

Waiting For The Sunrise is David Vandervelde's second album and was released in 2008. Whilst the '70s influences of his debut album "The Moonstation House Band" are still there, the comparisons to T-Rex aren't so much. This has more of a smooth country rock vibe with the occasional fleck of Yacht Rock. The songs are more straight forward, lack t...view item »

Ellen Mary McGee
The Crescent Sun

Ellen Mary McGee is a singer songwriter of Irish/Romany decent. 'Crescent Sun' is Ellen's first solo album following a stint in performing in irish folk outfit Saint Joan who made a few records for excellent australian label Camera Obscura. Two things worth mentioning; Ellen Mary McGee has a beautiful voice, so beautiful she could front The Chipmun...view item »

Tom Brosseau
Posthumous Success

Posthumous Success, eh.. Noticed there's another J Dilla LP on the way, I bet he and Arthur Russell are having a serious house party somewhere with all these royalties. Cynicism aside, we do all like humous in here and I'm sure its consumption can only lead us on to greater things. I'm not familiar with Tom Brosseau but apparently he's worked with ...view item »

John Vanderslice
Romanian Names

This album is a great gift to his fans, a highlight reel of perfectly haunting and gentle songs, dream-like lyrics and experimental sound effects. I find this record satisfying, in the way a crafty novel is dovetailed...or a sublime meal is presented in small courses. Vanderslice takes time to visit a plethora of emotional corners, showi...view item »

Joanna Newsom
The Milk Eyed Mender

On first listen I was amazed by this album. How could she be so audacious as to not to attempt (at least) to create a "pretty" sound? When you make an album don't you do everything to make it "pleasing to the ear?" I realised after a few tracks... she doesn't care about that. These are her songs and she does them her way and that's that... take ...view item »

Bat For Lashes
Two Suns

I'm well into this new Bat For Lashes album. I never really heard the last one much and when I did hear it I don't think I was that arsed about it. Me being the fickle soul and perhaps the extra exposure to this album (we've had a promo kicking around for a while) means it's had time to sink in. The thing that I really like about this is her ...view item »

Richard Swift
The Atlantic Ocean

With The Atlantic Ocean, Swift continues his surprisingly catchy oeuvre after the subtle yet very quality Dressed Up For the Letdown. The Atlantic Ocean is a bit more up-tempo, comprised of a weird yet intriguing inclusion of electronica weaving in between an omnipresent piano, lonely horn section, crunchy guitar and banjo ensemble. For me, the ...view item »

Alasdair Roberts

The lord of all things Celtic and folk is back armed with a new album of tales of old. Yup Alasdair Roberts has a brand new long player out on Drag City this week called 'Spoils'. I do like a bit of Ally Roberts though he's one of these people I'd always be happy with just one album by. Having said that this album has a slightly fuller sound as he ...view item »

The Lord Dog Bird
The Lord Dog Bird

I think The Lord Dog Bird's greatest success with this album is its cohesiveness. All the songs fit together to show a bigger picture. Some songs feature effects and ideas unique in each song and some effects and ideas that expand multiple songs. Most listeners should initially be aware that the reverb on this album is turned way up. The sound q...view item »

Parts & Labor

Receivers from Parts & Labor is a consistently surprising effort, combining noise, prog and psychedelic rock, often with 70's heavy metal guitar backdrop, into an experimental mix that for the first half of the album often doesn't even seem like the same band from track to track. They also layer on some electronic flourishes and display a re...view item »

Silver Jews
Tanglewood Numbers

On “Tanglewood Numbers” Silver Jews have transformed into more of rock band than they ever used to be. The dusty, slacker style is more-or-less gone, the sound is more immediate and punchy. “Punks In The Beerlight” is a decent opener and is more indie-rock than we’re used to getting from the band. However, there are...view item »

Dealing with birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, life's trials, and the sudden death of a close friend, Salim weaves his lyrics into an understated yet vivid portrait of the life experience. His melodies are intricate while remain...view item »

Stonewater EP

Moving onto Cubs on Rusted Rail. It's a (rather) cute 3" CD called The Stonewater EP and it's got a whopping 8 tracks on it. I can't even work out how much tracks per inch that is as the numbers aren't even. It's a lot though. Probably at least 10 (ish). Cubs contains folks from Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon, Mirakil Whip, Agitated Radio Pilot ...view item »

Palace Songs

"Hope" is an EP or mini album released in 1994, from the early part of Will Oldham's career. Its brief 18 minutes prove that quality and not quantity is the key to great music. "Agnes, Queen Of Sorrow" opens proceedings is typical of Oldham's sound. It has the refrain "If you wait another day" repeated as the song builds in a ramshackle yet beau...view item »

Okkervil River has the sound of a band that found its identity in roadhouses and small venues across the country.

The Pine Hill Haints

This album is a document of a band at it's finest. With the addition of a second singer, the Haints have really kicked it up a notch. They're not ironic, and you can clearly tell they appreciate all sorts of American music. As this is not one of their newer CDs, the music, to me, was not as fully developed as it is now. They have certainly evolv...view item »

Eric Chenaux I've never really had the pleasure. I should have listened to this promo of 'Sloppy Ground' a little harder.
