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.

Andy Shauf
The Bearer of Bad News

Sold out - sorry!

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.

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. Influenced by classic rock ‘n’ roll, sixties soul, R&B, country, boogie, honky tonk, blues and every other kind of pre-war American roots music ‘The Deslondes’ is a tribute to the past made with love by a collective of gifted songwriters.

Danny & The Champions Of The World
What Kind Of Love

Sold out - sorry!

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. Rather than taking the free-improvisation route, Jonah has crafted some interesting melodic, textural pieces. Released by Primary / Clandestine.

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. With her band The Sandcastles she creates a relaxed air somewhere between traditional folk and contemporary songwriter territory. Out on Suicide Squeeze.

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.

Kemper Norton
Lowermoor EP

Sold out - sorry!

Judee Sill

Santiparro
True Prayer

Psych folk in all its fantastical glory from Santiparro. Whether you lean more towards the outer reaches of psychedelia or the soft strumming of an acoustic guitar, True Prayer delivers the aural banquet you've been craving. Features contributions from Will Oldham, Kyp Malone, Adam Wills, Melati Malay and Ben Bromley. Out on gatefold CD and hand-numbered vinyl LP from Gnome Life.

Circuit Des Yeux
In Plain Speech

Haley Fohr a.k.a Circuit Des Yeux returns with In Plain Speech. Her evocative baritone vocals evoke the fine works of Anthony, whilst the emotive content proves no less alluring. Features a raft of Chicagoan collaborators from Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin Bajas) to Whitney Johnson (Verma). Out on CD and vinyl LP from Thrill Jockey.

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.

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.

Galley Beggar
Silence & Tears

Sold out - sorry!

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.

Bill Fay
Who Is The Sender?

Bill Fay rose from his career slumber with the triumphant Life Is People, a record of intimate songs about love, loss and the resolve of faith, played mostly on piano with supplementary arrangements that recalled the records he'd made years before. Thankfully it wasn't a victory lap or a one-off redemption story: Who Is The Sender? is its follow-up, and continues to wrestle with his deeply humanist but equally spiritual ideals.

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.

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.

Villagers
Darling Arithmetic

Darling Arithmetic is the third studio album from Villagers. Darling Arithmetic follows on from Conor O’Brien’s critically acclaimed and Mercury Music Prize nominated pair of albums, Becoming A Jackal and Awayland. This time O’Brien will set our hearts aflutter with a beautiful set of songs about love and relationships.

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. 

Nadine Shah
Fast Food

Sold out - sorry!

Jamie T
Magnolia Melancholia

Sold out - sorry!

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.

Frank Black & The Catholics

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.

Lapsley
Understudy

Sold out - sorry!

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.

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.

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.

Sold out - sorry!

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.

David Bowie
1966

This David Bowie material dates from before the concept of ‘David Bowie’ really existed. 1966 sounds very different from any of his later sounds, being more of a straight mod-pop affair. Still, these six songs are well put together, a lot more than just novelties. Though it is intriguing to hear this early side to the man. Reissue on Sanctuary.

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.

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.

Seasick Steve
Sonic Soul Surfer

Sold out - sorry!

Snails
Talking to Anthony / Winter Hearts

Sold out - sorry!

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.

Matt Berry
