Great Lake Swimmers
The Waves, The Wake

2018 is the year in which Great Lake Swimmers will get to their fifteenth birthday, and what better way to celebrate than with a new album? The group forbade the use of any acoustic guitar on The Waves, The Wake...view item »

Tom Odell
Jubilee Road

Crooning posho Tom Odell limbers up for another chart-dominating year with his third LP Jubilee Road. The title track sounds nothing like Nick Cave’s late-period masterpiece ‘Jubilee Street’. In fact it’s more like closing-time Elton John. The rest of the album i...view item »

The Mountain Goats
All Eternals Deck

The Mountain Goats John Darnielle is either a lyrical genius or a huge irritant depending on your viewpoint. Personally, I've never got it myself. Their music inspires nothing in me other than a feeling of 'meh'. His voice is that kind of whiney American somewhere between Stipe, the bloke from Neutral Milk Hotel and oh I dunno a Hootie and the B...view item »

Sean Christopher
Yonder

He can do loads of stuff, this Sean Christopher. He can drum. He can produce. He can pen very earnest ditties for voice and guitar that are like a less abhorrent version of Frank Turner. He does all of this and more on his debut LP Yonder. Some smartarse will use one of these tracks to try and sell you ...view item »

John Renbourn
Live In Kyoto 1978

John Renbourn passed away a couple of years ago, but his contribution to the folk revival of the 60s and 70s means his memory should live on a fair while. LPs like Live In Kyoto 1978 will help, too. This intimate recording is a fine example of Renbourn’s talent as both a guitarist and vocalist. His quicksilver pla...view item »

Joanna Newsom
Ys

It must being hard being Joanna Newsom - I mean you try playing the harp, squeaking and being so goddamn kooky all the time. After reading ecstatic reviews in every publication from 'Heron Fanciers Monthly' to 'Chainsawing Your Face Right Off Quarterly', I decided to check this record out. What I heard astonished me but possibly not in the way y...view item »

Hiss Golden Messenger
Lateness of Dancers

M.C. Taylor is the folkie who hides behind the Hiss Golden Messenger moniker. 'Lateness of Dancers' is second record in as many years, and he follows on from the dark and fractured tones of 'Haw' with a warmer, more welcoming vibe. It continues his pattern of recording his records wherever he damn well chooses, made in a small barn in his home-s...view item »

Kerry Devine
Away From Mountains

Now for some nice music from newcomer Kerry Devine. Away From Mountains is the singer-songwriter’s debut LP and it takes a great deal of inspiration from the atmospheres ...view item »

Various
Song, By Toad Split 12” V3

Toad Records continue their series of splits, this time with tunes commissioned and recorded at Insider Festival. Artists on this release of sparse, gorgeously spaced out folk music include David Thomas Broughton, Siobhan Wilson, Sparrow and the Workshop, and Jonnie Common. 'Song, By Toad V3' is as quaint and intimate as ever. The Scottish ...view item »

Kacey Johansing
The Hiding

Feels too important a detail to leave out that Kacey Johansing was born in a place called Kalamazoo. Beyond that her third album The Hiding is an incredibly warm collection of dreamy indie pop tunes about finding herself after a couple of seismic changes in her life, one of which was the break up ...view item »

John Barleycorn Reborn: Dark Britannica

Metal/doom/neofolk connoisseurs Burning World Records have waxed up this 2CD compilation from 2007 for the discerning vinyl heads. Originally curated for Cold Spring by Mark Coyle, the 4LP box set reissue contains a booklet elaborating on the theme and concepts of the project. That is, the grimmer and seedier side of Britain’s folklore, re...view item »

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...view item »

Aisha Burns
Argonauta

Aisha Burns is a talented violinist and singer. She has had stints in Alex Dupree and The Trapdoor Band and instrumental band Balmorhea. She released her debut album, Life In The Midwater, in 2013 to great acclaim. With her new album, Argonauta, she found a cathartic outlet in her ethereal ...view item »

Roo Panes
Quiet Man

‘I'm not the man they think I am at home/Oh no no no I'm a quiet man/Quiet man burning out his fuse up here alone’ is not how any of the choruses on the third LP from Roo Panes go. Mostly they sound like stuff that he’s swept up from Bon Iver’s cutting-room floor while Justin Vern...view item »

Neil Young
On The Beach

On The Beach is probably one of Neil Young’s lesser known albums, but it is right up there with his best work. Originally released in 1974 it was less commercial than its highly successful predecessor, Harvest - a typical curve ball from a man who doesn’t like to stand still for too long....view item »

American Aquarium
Things Change

Following yet another personnel reshuffle, BJ Barnham and his latest American Aquarium bandmates have a new album Things Change. Once again, Barnham successfully got the record funded by fans through Pledge Music, which is nice. Set your phasers on Springsteencore, because “Tough times don’t...view item »

Twain
Rare Feeling

Debut album from hard working American indie-folk artist Mt. (Mat) Davidson. He's previously played with big names like The Low Anthem, and slightly smaller names like The Deslondes. On 'Rare Feeling' he's performing under the name Twain, and delivers nine songs of gentle, sun-kissed A...view item »

Tom Waits
Brawlers

In 2006 the living legend that is Tom Waits released a 56 song triple album named Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards, featuring all manner of goodies. Now, for the first time, the three albums are being released as separate units! Brawlers is of course the fightiest set of the three, being full of blues and bar son...view item »

Simone Felice
The Projector

You might know him as being one part of competent American folksters The Felice Brothers. Or maybe you recognise his name from the liner notes of some of the 2010s most competent indie-pop (Bat For Lashes, Peace, The Lumineers). Either way, Simone Felice has com...view item »

Mike Cooper & Steve Gunn
Frkwys Vol. 11 : Cantos De Lisboa

RVNG's FRKWYS series is back to team someone youngish I like with someone oldish I like again. This time the youngish Steve Gunn rubs shoulders with the oldish (but still young at heart) Mike Cooper. These recordings come from a meeting the pair had in Lisbon, taking cues from the local Fado music and twisting it into an airy blues-ambient mou...view item »

Songs: Ohia
Travels in Constants

Under the Songs: Ohia moniker, Jason Molina released an untitled one song EP for a subscription series on Temporary Residence Records called Travels In Constants. The EP went under the radar, lost between the release of the albums Ghost Tropic and Didn’t It Rain. Now, released on vinyl as Travels In Consta...view item »

Jose Gonzalez
Veneer

Swedish singer/songwriter Jose Gonzalez’s debut, released in his homeland in 2003 but not until 2005 for the rest of us. Hushed and tender, and including ~that~ emotional cover of The Knife’s electro-pop number Heartbeats. Deft acoustic guitar and sweet double-tracked vocals - it’s pretty hard ...view item »

Simon Joyner
Step Into The Earthquake

We all know that Simon Joyner is one of the best American songwriters don't we? Don't we? Well Gillian Welch, Conor Oberst and Kevin Morby all sing his praises and this love of his peers is much deserved. The Omaha songwriter has a dark soul which has drawn comparisons with ...view item »

Crayola Lectern
Happy Endings

Brit maverick Crayola Lectern is back with a rollicking new album, complete with complex arrangements, a trademark sense of adventure and inspired imagination. Expect soulful wisdom, ruminations on mortality and the deep, transcendent, otherworldly psychedelia you've come to expect from this musical visionary....view item »

Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited

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. Highway 61 Revisited dates from 1965, and marks the point on record where Dylan moved firmly towards rock forms. Includes ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ and &lsq...view item »

Dave Evans
The Words Inbetween

Another superlative piece of English guitar folk from the fertile ground that was the early 70’s. Dave Evans’ The Words In Between was home-taped  and showcases the man’s astounding fingerpicking and gorgeous sense for melody. Less heard than many of its contemporaries, now's the time to hear ...view item »

Stanley Brinks
Peanuts

Sometimes you just run out of ideas and names and you call your album Peanuts. I'm okay with it though Stanley Brinks certainly doesn't need my approval. The songwriter's been having a blast recently, making folksy good-time records with the Wave Pictures; this solo record offers an all a...view item »

Nico
Chelsea Girl

This is the first Nico solo album and a long long way away from the inspired but terrifying avant churn of albums like Desertshore. Here she is in full on folk mode and with covers of songs by the likes of Lou Reed, Jackson Browne and Tim Hardin this is a lovely pastoral work of art tha...view item »

Baxter Dury
It's A Pleasure

Baxter Dury will be releasing his new album 'It's a Pleasure' on October 20th through PIAS. The album was produced by Baxter, Dan Carey (Franz Ferdinand, Tame Impala & Bat For Lashes) and mixed by Craig Silver (Arctic Monkeys, Arcade Fire & The Horrors).A few words from Baxter Dury about the album:'This album was ...view item »

Kath Bloom
Pass Through Here

Available on 12” Vinyl LP and CD from Chapter music, Pass Through Here is the first album from Connecticut based folk musician Kath Bloom in 5 years. This release marks venturing into some new sonic territory, whilst keeping the rawness of her much more stripped down recordings from the '80s. M...view item »

Erin Rae
Putting On Airs

When you write descriptions for the benevolent overlords at Norman Records™, you end up hearing a lot of very loud music. Industrial techno, noise rock, doom metal, someone banging two model Eddie Stobart lorries together for an hour - pretty much anything that measures high on the decibel scale, Norman will have it. So it’s a nice c...view item »

Robert Wyatt
Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard

At its heart, Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard is an active listening album. What I mean is, if you don't pay attention when you listen to it, you probably won't enjoy it very much. If you're not already a Robert Wyatt fan, I'm not sure if Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard is the best or most accessible place to start--that honour might go to Rock Bott...view item »

Skygreen Leopards
The Jingling World of The Skygreen Leopards

The latest LP to drop on the questionably-named Soft Abuse (Grouper, Exiles From Clowntown) actually reaches back into the past. The Jingling World Of The Skygreen Leopards brings together two home-taped albums by San Franciscan duo The Skygreen Leopards. Following a co...view item »

Ben Howard
Noonday Dream

England’s Bon Iver returns with his third LP. On Noonday Dream the comparison between Ben Howard and Justin Vernon extends beyond Howard aping the quivering croon of tracks like ‘Skinny Love’. In his own way, Howard has done a 22, A Million here. His experimen...view item »

Neko Case
Hell-On

Ace songwriter, musician, producer and member of The New Pornographers, Neko Case has enlisted the help of Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John to co-produce her new album, Hell-On. She’s called in a few favours for guest appearances by the looks of things too - Joey Burns (Calex...view item »

Music for Dead Birds
And Then It Rained for Seven Days

Music for Dead Birds. What a cheery moniker. They've a 3" CD out on that Rusted Rail, one of those hand assembled jobs. I'd like to assemble some sleeves for them. They look like the greetings cards I make for folk. These folks squeeze 8 songs onto this tiny disclet and name it "And Then It Rained For Seven Days" As i'm off to Scotla...view item »

Good Shepherd
Her Darke Aspects

Good Shepherd is the solo project of Cambridgeshire-based musician Duncan Poyser, who keeps things folky and acoustic, apart from when he allows electronics to disrupt him. Her Darke Aspects, his second release for the Rusted Rail label, fills a 3” CD with 6 songs, and is packaged in a hand-stampe...view item »

The Driftwood Manor
Dominican Black Abbey EP

It’s a while since Rusted Rail have chucked some 3” CDs our way but this week three hit our saggy shelves. Much excitement! And if you’re one of those people who buy 3” CDs to listen to (unlike me who ...view item »

Dollboy Meets Sone Institute
The Sum and the Difference

Dollboy has previously released stuff on Static Caravan etc. Sone Institute had a well received CD out Front and Follow that garnered praise by The Times no less. Here the two artists collaborate with each other, sending tapes back and forward to each other. Actually probably not tapes, sound waves more likely. The result is a patchwork of sound...view item »

Juliana Daugherty
Light

Singer-songwriter Juliana Daugherty is back with this limited-edition, milky-clear LP, out on Western Vinyl, a dreamy record that traverses mental illness, political outrage and societal ills, all laced with Daugherty's crooning, lilting vocals. Expect motorik pulses, vaporous strumming and heartbreaking choruses. Killer....view item »

Networking in Purgatory

Networking in Purgatory is the latest vinyl & CD from Ned Collette & Wirewalker.

Paul Messis
Songs of Our Times

Paul Messis regards himself as a 'garage punk unknown' but has been throwing out pysch-rock nuggets for the best part of a decade as a solo artist, with his band The Suburban Homes, as bass player with The Higher State and through his collaboration with The Sufis - The M...view item »

Richard Edwards
Verdugo

Indiana's Richard Edwards loves his fans, which is why he's releasing new record 'Verdugo', out on Joyful Noise, on coloured AND black vinyl. It's an uplifting listen, the story of a man stitching himself back together after personal trauma. Here his vocals swing between tender falsetto and deep melancholy, backed with soaring g...view item »

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 ...view item »

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,...view item »

Josephine Foster
A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing

Classic renditions of German poems that have been previously released and (as some of you may have noticed) have sold out on all platforms....until now! This is a remaster of A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing sung by Josephine Foster with brand spanking new artwork. But act fast because this is limited to 1000 copies and will ...view item »

Syd Barrett
The Madcap Laughs

‘The Madcap Laughs’ is the debut solo album by the English singer-songwriter recorded after Barrett had left Pink Floyd. That appears to be the pree release we were given. It is, intermittently, one of the finest albums of its era. Not slick by any stretch of the imagination but full of left field ideas.   ...view item »

Natalie Evans
Better At Night

Diving into the Small Pond this evening is fingerpicking guitarist and harpist Natalie Evans. For her debut Better At Night she’s honed a technique of setting tweely-sung indie pop lyrics to much more elaborate guitar and harp playing. The entertaining contrast comes out something like a Kate Nash...view item »

Annelies Monsere
Debris

On Debris, Annelies Monsere shows that there is no reason you can’t put a love for traditional, folk-inspired songwriting and a love of dark drone sounds into the same record. Shunning most of the many illustrious collaborators she has worked with in the past, Monsere skillfully blends her voice w...view item »

The Left Outsides
All That Remains

Feeding Tube and Cardinal Fuzz have united for a limited vinyl pressing of the new album by undervalued UK duo the Left Outsides. Theirs is a unique take on folk rock with a vocal, harmonium and viola blend which along with more traditional rock instruments creates a misty folk classicism that most recalls Opal,...view item »

Tom Waits
Glitter and Doom Live

This is Tom Waits' third live album since his arrival on the music scene in 1973. His first two, Nighthawks at the Diner, a live album of new material, and Big Time were both brilliant retrospectives of his evolution and Glitter and Doom is no different; pulling the majority of the material for this album from his work in the 2000s. As if his so...view item »

The Perth County Conspiracy
The Perth County Conspiracy

The Perth County Conspiracy were a psychedelic folk group from the 1970s whose records now fetch big bucks. If you don’t have big bucks, then the people at Flashback have conveniently reissued their eponymous 1970 LP at an affordable price. Despite coming only a few weeks after their Columbia...view item »

Us and Them
On Shipless Ocean

On Shipless Ocean is the second record from pysch-rock band Us and Them. What makes this record even more special is that it is available on a limited pressing blue vinyl. Available only as an LP and released on Mega Dodo. Apparently, when you listen to this you feel like you're in a warm 'liquid bubble'. Interesting....view item »

Ryley Walker
Deafman Glance

New from Ryley Walker  - a musician always willing to step outside himself to find new sounds and the one snippet we heard sounds like he's been heavily pounding the Jim O'Rourke/Gastr Del Sol axis.  Sweet bucolic folk with flutes galore and some unexpected harshness. Looking forward t...view item »

Delaney Davidson
Shining Day

Glass Records Redux (Spacemen 3, Spiritualized) has picked up the ninth studio LP from New Zealand artist Delaney Davidson. Coming a couple of years after Lucky Guy, Shining Day is another record of slightly garage-y singer-songwriter fare from Davidson. The li...view item »

Julie Doiron
Désormais / Heart and Crime

Exciting reissue klaxon! This double re-release of Julie Doiron's stunning 2001 album ‘Désormais’ and 2002's 'Heart And Crime', previously out of print on vinyl, is testament to the Canadian's disarmingly warm songwriting. Weaving together gentle fingerpicking, ethereal vocals and twinkling piano, this record ...view item »

Emily Jane White / House of Wolves
Split EP

California native Emily Jane White hooks up with folk stalwart House of Wolves for this EP, out on discolexique. White brings her trademark brooding romanticism to the proceedings, while House of Wolves adds his androgynous voice and glam-rock influences to the mix. This record features two covers, along with tw...view item »

Jim Sullivan
U.F.O.

Jim Sullivan's U.F.O. is a mighty strange yet very pleasant gem straight out of left field. The LP was originally released almost 50 years ago and didn't see much in distribution or sales. The lucky few who purchased the album found a really unusual slab of wax. Lots of surreal lyrics set to music that could be eerie, catchy, or both at the same...view item »

Link Wray
Link Wray

In which the legendary guitarist (now down to just the one lung) moved away from the instrumental nature of his previous records and sang roots, country and folk in a gutteral bark.Pretty much ignored at the time, the record has gained a cult following as the years flew by with Nick Cave and the Neville Brothers...view item »

Marisa Anderson
Traditional and Public Domain Songs

Marisa Anderson has been touring extensively in recent years, and anyone who’s been lucky enough to see her perform will know her to be a masterful electric guitar soloist, steeped in blues, gospel and folk traditions. She’s a distinctive interpreter, and here shows fresh and unpredictable takes on songs that are abo...view item »

Neil Young
Harvest

"That's not the real Neil" barked a particularly discerning Neil Young fan when I dared to suggest that 'Harvest' was my favourite album. Proper fans may prefer 'Trans' but for any newcomer to Neil Young, this is the one to start with. It's a lovely late '60's folk album with a consistent feel throughout and a sound that set the blueprint for hi...view item »

Joshua Hedley
Mr. Jukebox

This is … well it's ... it's definitely … let’s start by saying that it’s on Jack White’s Third Man Records, as sure a sign as any that what you’re about to listen to could go either way. Joshua Hedley plays the fiddle and sings in the good old country fashi...view item »

Mark McDowell and Friends
Dark Weave

Mark McDowell and Friends are a bunch of psychedelic folkers. Dark Weave combines ‘60s psych folk, drone and haunting ballads played on acoustic guitars, analogue synths and sitars. The globetrotting troupe recorded their fifth album in San Francisco, Bristol and Wales. Limited edition green vinyl LP on Friend Of The Fish....view item »

Jess Williamson
Cosmic Wink

Dreaming the cosmic dream, dancing the cosmic dance, winking the Cosmic Wink. That’s what Jess Williamson is up to on her latest LP. Her third record - and first for Mexican Summer - is rooted in Americana and Byrds-y songcraft, but lyrically it finds Williamson gazing up at the s...view item »

Melanie de Biasio
No Deal

Originally from Charleroi and currently based in Brussels, De Biasio is a classically trained flautist and the possessor of an extraordinary voice - she has been called the Belgian Billie Holiday. The minimalist, semi-improvised 'No Deal' should appeal to fans of late-period Talk Talk: Mark Hollis is a huge figure for De Biasio. She also...view item »

Jennifer Castle
Angels of Death

Deathly and mythic, Jennifer Castle continues to do her thing (this time formally under her own name) with a record in ode to the Muses. It's calledo Angels of Death and it offers sparse, low-key country music to get devoured by ghosts to. As always, Castle's missives from the world of phenomena are not t...view item »

John Paul White
Beulah

Beulah is the debut album by John Paul White - the male half of popular Grammy award winning altish-country duo The Civil Wars. Plaintive yet ambitious, Beulah takes in folk ballads, campfire songs, gothic acoustic pop and a bit of swamp-drenched southern rock. No doubt fans of his previous ban...view item »

Dan Melchior
Ghost In the Supermarket

Dan Melchior is back with five brand new songs on this leopard claw bay-related 12” EP on Moniker. On the first side we've got the plodding acoustic title track and then a more upbeat bit of weirdo lo-fi pop called 'Strange Antennae' w...view item »

Beautify Junkyards
The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards

The third LP for Lisbon hypnagogicists Beautify Junkyards sees the group sticking to the rose-tinted music that landed them on Ghost Box in the first place.

WELFARE
Useful Toil

For those not yet forlorn enough, may I suggest the appropriately titled Useful Toil, which should sleepily descend melancholy on you without fuss. Dream pop cut from the finest reverb cloth, Welfare take their favourite genre and give its ethereality a lushness, offering acoustic guitars, strings and flutes, plus some of that org...view item »

Sarah Louise

Spiritual Jazz, drone, minimalist musician, House And Land member and Pitchfork favourite, Sarah Louise uses her Thrill Jockey debut as the platform to showcase her vocal talents for the first time, accompanying her 12-string acoustic guitar to create a haunting folk record. Deeper Woods features guest performan...view item »

Damien Jurado
The Horizon Just Laughed

Damien Jurado’s thirteenth LP - and the first one he’s produced all by himself - doesn’t see the Seattle-based artist messing with the formula too much. The Horizon Just Laughed is a record of lovely singer-songwriter stuff from a man with a tale or two to tell. Fans of his previous work, as well as th...view item »

Isaac Gracie

Hot new British soft rock prospect Isaac Gracie's self-titled debut album comes out on the tail of a series of well received singles.  On it the young Londoner gets to grips with himself and his anxieties. Virgin EMI have very kindly given us some indies only yellow vinyl copies of this limit...view item »

Trembling Bells
Dungeness

I just can't get over the sleeve. Just look at it. Kind of suits the music Trembling Bells make though. It's shot through with the folk influence of bands who also wore 17th century garb and claimed a kinship with days of yore. I'm thinking Fairport Convention. But Trembling Bells are also very psychedelic. You'...view item »

Alasdair Roberts, Amble Skuse & David McGuiness
What News

Classic Scottish folk singer (he hates that term that's why I put it there) Alasdair Roberts lurches out of his comfort zone on this his twelfth solo album by casting away his guitar and collaborating with Concerto Caledonia director David McGuinness. McGuinness was charged with arranging Roberts songs and he brought in&nbs...view item »

You Don't Own Me Anymore

You Don’t Own Me Anymore is the latest release from The Secret Sisters.

Xylouris White
Black Peak

Dirty Three post-rock snoozer Jim White, who isn't a snooker player, once again joins forces with lute player Giorgos Xylouris in their lazily named supergroup Xylouris White. I'll give them a free pass once more as their music continues to be frenetic, moving at joyful accelerati...view item »

Devendra Banhart
Ape In Pink Marble

A really nice, delicate release from freak-folk mainstay Devendra Banhart, although I think he might have toned down the ‘freakiness’ by now. Ape In Pink Marble is an LA production, imbued with the sunny attitudes of sweet sweet California. Released on Nonesuch: the LP edition comes with a bonus poster....view item »

case/lang/veirs

The low-key name case/lang/viers and the subtle promotion around this album shields the fact that this is Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Viers we are dealing with here, 3 top-of-the-line singer-songwriters. The star quality shines through this smooth collection of grown-up pop m...view item »

Beirut
The Flying Club Cup

Beirut Beirut Beirut eh. Where on earth do you start. I guess this is one of the years 'important' releases after the last album blew everyones collective socks off and ended up in loads of end of years polls. Possibly the biggest acolation awarded to the album was in fact the Norman Records album of the year which wasn't something given lightly. O...view item »

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.
