Tom Waits
Closing Time

Closing Time was where it all began for Tom Waits, arguably the greatest cult artist in the history of popular music. Released in 1973, Waits didn’t yet possess his legendarily gruff vocal delivery, his approach more honeyed and traditional on immortal tracks like ‘Ol’ 55’ and the aching ‘Martha’. 

Hak Baker
Babylon

Hak Baker is being called a storyteller rather than singer, songwriter or musician. He does make music of course, and Babylon, which has been in the works for some time, is testament to his ability to do so. It is a twelve song mixtape showing the East Londoner's artistic flair with a personal and unflinching story to tell.

S. Carey
All We Grow (Ten Year Anniversary Edition)

Classically-trained percussionist S. Carey is now relatively well-known as a solo artist, but before he released his debut solo album 'All We Grow' in 2010 he was recognisable as the percussionist and backing vocalist in the Bon Iver live band. 'All We Grow' exists in a similar world to much of Justin Vernon’s work due to its fragile, beautiful melodies and lush harmonies, but there are nods to Mark Hollis and percussive elements that call to mind Steve Reich.

Jeff Tweedy
Love Is The King

Love Is The King is the fourth solo album by Jeff Tweedy, known as the leader of Americana favourites WIlco. He recorded it at home at the beginning of lockdown. The album is generally one of hope, recorded at a time when he had his family around, but there’s definitely a little bit of fear of what’s happening outside creeping in on some tracks.

Laura Groves
A Private Road

'A Private Road' is the fifth EP by Laura Groves, a singer-songwriter from Shipley, West Yorkshire who made her only album to date under the name Blue Roses. The EP is a soundtrack to Groves’ journeying in her adopted home of London, inspired by her life's experiences and shot through with 80s-style production reminiscent of Suzanne Vega.

Juana Molina
ANRMAL (Live in Mexico)

'ANRMAL (Live In Mexico)' captures Argentine guitarist, singer and songwriter Juana Molina in fabulous form performing at the Mexican NRML festival just days before the world locked down. It’s her first live album, and among the tracks are a couple of ‘punk’ versions of her songs adding to the energy and uptempo vibe of the performance.

Bright Eyes
I'm Wide Awake It's Morning

Bright Eyes released two albums on the same day back in 2005. Those were 'Digital Ash in a Digital Urn' and this one. Conor Oberst is very much from the Elliott Smith school of depressing songwriters who are neither straight up indie nor proper folk. He puts a lot of emotion in his voice which can either melt hearts of his fans or irritate the naysayers. Either way, this one is his most popular and acclaimed album that longtime fans still adore to this day.

The Burning Hell / B.A. Johnston
I Want To Drink In A Bar

Sold out - sorry!

Matt Berry
Phantom Birds

Apart from his side-splitting television comedy routines, Matt Berry also has a parallel music career. He was last seen reworking some TV Themes but comes back with a more serious opus as he takes inspiration from Bob Dylan's bare bones album John Wesley Harding. For Phantom Birds he works with just a handful of musicians to strip things back to basics.

Mickey Newbury / Bill Callahan
Heaven Help The Child

Sold out - sorry!

Psychic Temple
Houses of the Holy

Sold out - sorry!

Anjimile
Giver Taker

Giver Taker is the debut studio album from Anjimile Chithambo, a transformative epic created during a period of rehabilitation from alcohol and substance abuse as well as living as a nonbinary trans person for the first time. Recorded with Justine Bowe and and artist/producer Gabe Goodman, it forges together Eighties pop influences with African music that Anjimile’s parents played around the family home. 

Keeley Forsyth
Photograph

Keeley Forsyth's 'Debris' was one of the suprise breakouts from 2019. Originally an actor who has appeared in programs such as 'Happy Valley', 'Luther' and 'The Casual Vacancy', her debut album was an honest and brooding work, quietly magisterial, with comparisons made to Scott Walker, Joni Mitchell, and Arthur Russell. 'Photograph' is the follow-up release to 'Debris', a 4-track EP that "takes two steps on from 'Debris'’ electronic closer ‘Start Again’". Out on The Leaf Label.

Anna B Savage
A Common Turn

'A Common Turn' is the debut studio LP from London artist Anna B Savage, a former touring pal of Father John Misty and Jenny Hval. Produced by William Doyle (f.k.a. East India Youth), this an album of symphonic chamber-pop swells and sparse, cavernous quiet sections framing a voice communicating both insecurity and confidence.

Ailbhe Reddy
Personal History

Ailbhe Reddy is a young songwriter from Ireland who, after a couple of EPs, seems ready for a leap into the big time. Online publications such as CLash and Line of Best Fit have praised her abilities, as has Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music. She is set to support Paul Weller and Big Thief in 2021. Personal History is her debut album and features the cracking single Between Your Teeth.

Peter Ulrich
Pathways and Dawns

Peter Ulrich is probably best known as the drummer in Dead Can Dance and for collaborating with This Mortal Coil, although he has a solo career which has seen him release five albums to date. Pathways and Dawns was the first of those and was originally released in 1999. It is made up from sessions recorded in 1990 and 1996-97. Hypnotic rhythms and poetic lyrics are augmented by guitars, arrangements and production from Dead Can Dance bandmate Brendan Perry.

Alasdair Roberts
Alasdair Roberts

Alasdair Roberts is a softly spoken Scottish folk musician with a gorgeously fragile voice, a voice that feels entirely perfect for the traditional songs he commonly sings. For this album on Drag City however, all the songs are original. From what I’ve heard though, they feel sound just as special and well-worn.

Smog
Wild Love

Sold out - sorry!

Pumice
Table

For years Pumice was the vehicle for immensely creative New Zealand-based artist Stefan Neville (the outfit now consists of Jade Farley as well). Here we find Pumice releasing another electronically-enhanced folk gem. 'Table' offsets Neville’s drones and organ sounds against his partner’s violin lines, and the results are captivating - think Bibio.

Fenne Lily
On Hold

Sold out - sorry!

Bill Callahan
Live at Third Man Records

Sold out - sorry!

Woods
Live at Third Man Records

Woods are a reliably American band who’ve been mixing folk and soul and funk and indie for a decade now. This particular release documents what happened when Woods played a live set at Jack White’s Third Man Records, recorded in meticulous analogue detail on audio-lover White’s special equipment.

Elliott Smith
Division Day

Division Day by Elliott Smith was a non-album single, originally released in 1996 in between his self-titled second album and his masterpiece, Either/Or. Division Day is Elliott’s first foray into more upbeat pop following two acoustic albums. Now repressed on tri-colour vinyl and limited to 1000 copies. An absolute must-buy for Elliott Smith fans who missed out first time round.

M. Ward
Duet For Guitars

Duet For Guitars #2 is the fab debut album by M. Ward. The album combines finger picked guitar instrumentals that, in sound, land somewhere between John Fahey and Jim O’Rourke and songs sung in Ward’s now trademark drawl, all recorded with a home recording, lo-fi aesthetic. It was originally released on CD in 1999.

Susanna
Baudelaire & Piano

The work of French poet Charles Baudelaire has influenced many 20th century music stars, from Jim Morrison to Scott Walker. On the beautiful and self-explanatory Baudelaire & Piano, Norwegian artist Susanna sets ten texts from his masterpiece ‘The Flowers of Evil’ to set simply to piano, recorded under COVID lockdown in a studio in Stockholm. 

Ed Harcourt
Monochrome To Colour

As someone who’s found success writing songs for Paloma Faith, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Marianne Faithfull, it’s always been a crying shame that Ed Harcourt has never found commercial success in his own right. The ninth album in a career stretching back to the turn of the millennium, hopefully Monochrome To Colour can correct that. Featuring Portishead’s Clive Deamer on drums, it’s a beautifully crafted mix of ancient and modern instrumentation and styles. 

Laura Veirs
Fading of Stars

'Fading Of Stars' is an unreleased cut from Laura Veirs' superb eleventh album 'The Lookout'. Expect mournful Americana and folky stylings. The A-side is backed by a cover of Daniel Johnston weepy 'True Love Will Find You In The End'. Out on Bella Union.

Daniel Rossen

Key Grizzly Bear member and master of many instruments Daniel Rossen treats us to a rare solo outing with Deerslayer. Carefully balanced arrangements dress the ever-gorgeous vocal, before a surprisingly rocky guitar takes the track somewhere bigger. On the B-side lies a cover of a Golden Suits song. Warp 12”.

Stick In The Wheel
Hold Fast

Stick in the Wheel are a London-based folk duo whose traditionally melodic yet powerful delivery is apposite for their political and socially aware lyrics. Hold Fast follows 2018’s Follow Them True and is their third album. It arguably comes at a time when their political punch could be just what we need.

Emily Barker
A Dark Murmuration of Words

For her fourth studio album, Australian singer-songwriter Emily Barker widens her scope to encapsulate some of the grandest themes yet. A Dark Murmuration of Words examines our unconscious choices and unspoken prejudices, and essays the search for meaning in an increasingly loud, social media-driven world. 

Ariel Pink & Weyes Blood
Myths 002

Sold out - sorry!

Emma Tricca
St. Peter

Emma Tricca’s first LP since 2014’s Relic is another record of delicate, dreamy folk-rock. Devendra Banhart and Jane Weaver spring to mind on tracks like the gorgeous, feathery ‘Julian’s Wings’. St. Peter also features a pretty star-studded credit reel - members of Sonic Youth, The Dream Syndicate and Paper Dollhouse all make appearances.

Native Harrow
Closeness

Pennsylvania-based folk duo Native Harrow deliver their fourth studio LP in double-quick time - 'Closeness' comes barely a year after Native Harrow's last outing 'Happier Now'. The band’s Devin Tuel says that 'Closeness' is about love and connections, a sentiment reflected in the timeless FM rock influences and orchestral pop decorations of its lead single ‘Shake’.  We're getting signed postcards for the first 20 customers who order the record.

Shirley Collins
Heart's Ease

As if to prove you are never too old for anything, folk legend Shirley Collins returned unexpectedly in 2016 when already deep into her eighties to produce Lodestar  - her first work in just the 38 years. Well a mere four years later she is back with Hearts Ease which sees Collins relaxing back into her work and producing folk that stands up to her 60's and '70s best. A lovely return from the queen of folk music  - and doesn't she look something like the actual queen on that sleeve art (albeit with extra hair)? 

Darlingside
Fish Pond Fish

Darlingside are an indie / folk band based in Boston, Massachusetts. Fish Pond Fish is their fourth album and follows their 2018 album Extralife. This album, thematically, seems to be concerned with going back to past lives. If you can imagine a perfect blend of Sufjan Stevens and Animal Collective, then that’s kinda what they sound like. On More Doug Records.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Bryce Dessner, Eighth Blackbird
When We Are Inhuman

After last year’s El Chan, The National’s Bryce Dessner makes another foray into the world of contemporary classical and post-minimalist composition in the form of When We Are Inhuman. For When We Are Inhuman Dessner balanced the instrumental prowess of Eighth Blackbird with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s folksy songcraft to create an LP of nuanced and stirring compositions. Illinois-era Sufjan Stevens is the most obvious comparison here - indeed, the link is so strong that there’s even a song on When We Are Inhuman based on that record’s ‘John Wayne Gacy Jr.’.

Gea Russell
One Last Dance

Gea Russell is a singer / songwriter and rapper who began his career in the experimental hip-hop group 3.6 Philly. A sonic departure from his previous album, Slow Train, comes One Last Dance. His sound mixes elements of blues, soul, reggae, jazz and hip hop, and whilst his music has been likened to Tindersticks, Ben Harper and Michael Kiwanuka, he really has his own sound which you can hear for yourself if you buy the album - which is always the best course of action.

Tiny Ruins
Some Were Meant For Sea

Tiny Ruins is the alias used by New Zealander Hollie Fulbrook who released her debut album Some Were Meant For Sea on the tiny Spunk label in 2011. Luckily Bella Union stepped in to give it a vinyl re-issue and bring her warm textured nature-inspired songwriting a bigger audience. More stripped-back than her later work, this slow burning record should not be underestimated.

Hiss Golden Messenger
Let the Light of the World Open Your Eyes (Alive at Spacebomb)

Spacebomb is a studio which has been producing a series of releases in which bands record a session with the in-house orchestra. The latest is by rustic folkies Hiss Golden Messenger who re-record tracks from their 2019 album Terms of Surrender in the setting. The band have long been favourites in the alt country kinda field and even attracted the attention of Dame David Bowie. 

Bert Jansch
The Black Swan (single)

The title track from the late Bert Jansch’s final album, rightfully presented as a single in the 7” format here. It’s a remarkable song, featuring Jansch’s noble old voice and guitar wrapped around melancholy cello lines from Helena Espvall (Espers). And on the B-side, a sparse demo of the same track, for comparison. 7” single on Earth Recordings, limited to 2000 copies.

Neil Young
The Times

For this here EP Neil Young recorded new versions of his old songs, at home during lockdown, that seem pretty relevant to What's Going On Right Now - and of course he called it 'The Times'. 'The Times' is part of Young's 'Fireside Series', and the fact that it includes such classics from his canon as 'Alabama', 'Southern Man' and 'Ohio' means that he still seems intent on dunking on the Confederacy well into his eighth decade on this planet. There's also a cover of his ol’ friend Bob Dylan’s 'The Times They Are A-Changin’'.

Kacey Johansing
No Better Time

No Better Time by singer / songwriter Kacey Johansing is an album about being able to love again after past trauma. It was produced by Vetiver / Fruit Bats producer Tim Ramsey, Mixed by Elliott Smith producer Rob Schnapf and features a host of musicians who have worked with the likes of Feist, Julian Cassablancas and Devandra Banhart.

Sophie Hunger
Halluzinationen

Another great record created with the assistance of hugely in-demand British producer Dan Carey (Speedy Wunderground boss), Halluzinationen is the seventh studio album from Berlin-based star Sophie Hunger. Laid down with a continuous live take method that saw the entire piece performed in its entirety six times over one weekend, it’s her strongest effort to date.

Tori Amos
Little Earthquakes

A reissue campaign of famed singer-songwriter Tori Amos’s work begins with her first albums, pressed to 180g vinyl by Rhino. Little Earthquakes is her 1992 debut, the first step she took to becoming a Big Deal. Includes the singles ‘Me and a Gun’, ‘Silent All These Years’, ‘China’, ‘Winter’ and ‘Crucify’.

Dusty Springfield
Dusty In Memphis

A few years ago (I say ‘a few’ I probably mean 20) I read an opinion, I think in the NME, that the 10-second intro to Son Of A Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield is the greatest 10 seconds of music ever recorded. It’s hard to argue with as it is very good indeed. Dusty Springfield released Dusty In Memphis in 1969 and utilised the talents of the city’s finest session musicians. It was produced by Jerry Wexler and Tom Dowd and is thought of as her best work, and is arguably one of the best albums of all time.

Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter Two: Mississippi Moonchile

The second part of Matana Roberts' projected twelve-part jazz tapestry is an extremely confounding and yet gorgeously structured work, based around four-pronged suites of free jazz, operatic vocals, smooth spoken word narratives and gospel chants. The record rises and falls around these passages of music to show the personal and political implications of civil rights and racism in America.

Richard & Linda Thompson
Hokey Pokey

Following the gloomy splendour of I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight, Richard & Linda Thompson’s second album together was a much more upbeat affair. Influenced by classic British music hall, brass bands, pub favourites and traditional English hymns, Hokey Pokey is now re-issued by Island on heavyweight vinyl. 

Sally Anne Morgan
Thread

Thread is a solo album from Sally Anne Morgan, talented musician and singer with Black Twig Pickers and duo House And Land. Featuring contributions from Nathan Bowles (drums) and Andrew Zinn (guitar), it’s a full demonstration of Morgan’s brilliance as a singer and as a banjoist and violinist. 

Bright Eyes
Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was

Conor Oberst has been busy with bits and bats over the last decade but what we all really wanted was him to bring back his band Bright Eyes. Following a Christmas party in 2017 Oberst got all emotional, decided the time was right and so Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was was made with founding members Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott. The result is a sprawling record, anxious about the times but also hopeful for the future.

Le Ren
Morning & Melancholia

Le Ren is Lauren Spear from Montreal. Her new EP Morning and Melancholia takes all her heartbreak and feeling of loss from the tragic death of her boyfriend in a car crash and pours it into some of the most heartfelt folk you’ve ever heard. Musically, she is inspired by Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Neil Young, John Prine and Bob Dylan. 12” EP on Secretly Canadian.

Joshua Burnside
Into The Depths Of Hell

Not named after the entrance to our building (or maybe it is?) Into the Depths of Hell is the second album by Joshua Burnside following the runaway success of his debut Ephrata. The Irish folksinger incorporates elements of electronica and world music into his steady brew creating a brooding and expansive brew. Into the Depths of Hell muses on the suffering we humans inflict on each other on a daily basis. 

Josiah Johnson
Every Feeling On A Loop

Five years after departing indie-folk outfit The Head And The Heart, singer-songwriter Josiah Johnson has come out of the other end of an extended period of personal upheaval, related to addiction struggles, with his debut solo album Every Feeling On A Loop. As you’d expect, it’s a bracing and vulnerable listening experience.

Neil Young
After The Gold Rush

Neil’s 1970 masterpiece is sublimely balanced. The lonesome piano stoner anthem of the title track, the eerie / uplifting Don’t Let It Bring you Down, Only Love Can Break Your Heart’s hippy wisdom, a pair of Crazy Horse rockers, and a few weepies. There’s not a song here that wouldn’t be an essential setlist inclusion for most artists, but this is Neil we’re talking about. Hence the charming miniatures Cripple Creek Ferry and Til the Morning Comes are relatively overlooked and Tell Me Why rarely gets a live airing. The recent remaster was a revelation and best of all on vinyl.

Scott Walker
Til The Band Comes In

'Til The Band Comes In' was Scott Walker's sixth record, originally released in 1970 and consisting of two distinct sides: on the first, Walker gives us a bunch of new solo material, while on the flip there are covers on covers. While Walker started as a renowned pop crooner with a baritone and a lot of melodrama, 'Til The Band Comes In' has hints of the artist who would eventually stop all that easy listening and go hard with the avant-garde.

Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith
Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield

‘Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield sing Elliott Smith.’ is exactly what it sounds like. Two indie folk rock artists playing twelve songs originally written by Elliott Smith. Avett and Mayfield’s play with a reverence to the original material, characterised by their stripped down instrumentation and bare, untreated vocals.

Bob Dylan
Nashville Skyline

Colombia are reissuing Legacy Editions of a whole brace of classic Bob Dylan albums, not that they seemed at risk of falling out of print. 1969’s Nashville Skyline finds Dylan going all the way into country music: must be in that Nashville air. Also marks the first appearance of croony singing voice.

Marissa Nadler
For My Crimes

The eighth LP from Marissa Nadler arrives courtesy of Sacred Bones. While this record may feature contributions from Angel Olsen, Mary Lattimore, Kristin Kontrol and Sharon Van Etten, their parts only ever act as augmentations to Nadler’s beguiling songs. The eleven tracks of For My Crimes cover ground between Murder Ballads-y gallows-song (the title track) to a sort of heartland-grunge hybrid (‘Blue Vapor’).

Age Of Worry

Age of Worry is an 18-track compilation exhuming the vault of Monument Records to unearth some rarities of country, bluegrass and folk songs from the Sixties that document that overarching sense of paranoia and dread of the era. Boasting in-depth liner notes from scholar Alvin Lucia, it features contributions from the likes of Billy Walker, Rusty Draper and Tex Williams.

Townes Van Zandt (50th Anniversary Edition)

This self-titled album was actually Townes Van Zandt's third album but includes re-recordings for four songs from his debut as Van Zandt was unhappy with the earlier production. Alongside Our Mother the Mountain it contains some of his best and most enduring work and includes future classics such as For the Sake of the Song.

Sufjan Stevens
Enjoy Your Rabbit

Originally released in 2001 before ‘Michigan’ and ‘Illinois’, Sufjan Steven’s ‘Enjoy Your Rabbit’ foretells his 2010 electronic ‘Age Of Adz’. Though overlooked by many, there are fans who regard ‘Enjoy Your Rabbit’ as Sufjan’s greatest work. Departing from the singer-songwriter format of his debut Asthmatic Kitty Records album, ‘A Sun Came’, this is a collection of fourteen colourful instrumental compositions combining Sufjan’s noted gift for melody with electronic sounds to create an unusually playful and human - not to mention humane - electronic experience. Great for dancing, driving, writing, cooking, painting, running, walking and, of course, eating Chinese food, ‘... Rabbit’ features nearly eighty minutes of music that will truly soothe the savage breast, whatever that means.

You may have heard his songs on films such as Peanut Butter Falcon, Hell or High Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Sad About The Times

Fed up with The Times newspaper? Hang on, no. I mean: Fed up with the times (in which we currently live)? Up for some songs about it? Here’s a tidy poultice of wistful, uplifting, cathartic and otherwise haunted tunes from the likes of Norma Tanega, David Chalmers and Jim Spencer. Sweet ’n’ sober folk rock, soft rock, psychedelia and so forth.

Johanna Warren

There are bonus tracks in the shape of ‘The Garden’ and ‘Maya’, along with instrumental versions of the studio albums.

Whitney

Inspired by great American pop songwriters from Carole King to Randy Newman, James Dent May presents his fifth studio album Late Checkout.
