Tom Waits
Nighthawks At The Diner

Waits’ third album is arguably the pinnacle of his early beatnik barfly persona. Taking a different approach to his more mannered previous albums, the 1975 LP was recorded live in a pseudo small club setup. It’s jazzy and deceptively loose and boozy, though Tom knows exactly what he’s doing, whether delivering jokey banter or vividly narrative songs like Spare Parts and Putnam County.

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.

Tom Waits
The Heart Of Saturday Night

The second Tom Waits album is still in relatively earnest singer-songwriter territory, but with an extra injection of jazz into the mix. It’s the work of an artist still trying to define his identity, but coming out with plenty of impressive songs in the meantime. Diamonds On My Windshield wears the beatnik influence on its dashboard, while you can imagine Bruce Springsteen taking notes on the title track.

Tom Waits
Small Change

Small Change was a significant leap forward in Waits’ career, a varied batch of songs that  balance humour and pathos and are full of character. It opens with the mournful classic Tom Traubert's Blues. Then there’s the burlesque romps Pasties and a G-String and Step Right Up, the painfully hilarious The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me) and the Runyonesque noir of the title track.

Bonny Billy
More Revery

More Revery is a lesser-known 2000-era Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy album, which found him stowing his band away to cover an array of favourite songs. All sorts of genres are drawn in and made Bonnie: PJ Harvey, Tim McGraw and Bill Withers are all represented here. This rare collection is now available on vinyl from Temporary Residence.

Damien Rice
O

Esteemed heartbroken man Damien Rice used to make extremely loud and haughty folk songs with the help of the wonderful musician Lisa Hannigan. You may well remember "Cannonball" and "Delicate", or maybe the more trad, groan-alongisms of "Cheers Darlin'". Whatever the case, this dude was immensely popular once and this reissue of O stretches to sixteen tracks with four bonus recordings.

John Prine
The Tree of Forgiveness

Very sweet and earnest folk from long time player John Prine. His first collection of new songs since he one a Grammy in 2005. This man has a wonderful sense of humour, listening to him lay into The Men Who Stare at Goats will never not get a smile out of me. You might say he's still in the Prine of his life.

Mark Kozelek

Eighty eight further minutes of your life you won't get back again with this latest album from Mark Kozelek's favourite singer.  Recorded partly in hotels, I'm looking forward to hearing what particular accommodation gripes he has this time. If this is not enough for you then there's also a new Sun Kil Moon album due later in the year. Rejoice!

Mark Lanegan
Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Mark Lanegan’s second solo album is back on the streets again in the form of this double gatefold LP. Whiskey For The Holy Ghost is dark and dramatic and deeply American, pulling away from the grunge sound of his Screaming Trees (although there is a guest appearance from Dan Peters of Mudhoney). Reissued by Sub Pop.

American Music Club
Mercury

Reissue of the sixth studio album from San Francisco-based indie outfit American Music Club. This was their first release on a major label and was widely critically acclaimed (although not as revered as its predecessor, the seminal Everclear). However, it received little airplay and failed to chart. The following year's release, San Francisco, would be the band's last album until they were to reform 10 years later.

Horse Feathers
Appreciation

Who knew horses had feathers? How wonderful. Horse Feathers have been going about their quiet business for twelve years or so now and this fifth LP sees the band head towards a new dynamic with a bit of a Northern Soul feel. Justin Ringle's warm, bearded tenor sings of work, love and life. Welcome to the club.

Jessica Risker
I See You Among The Stars

Missouri-born, Chicago-dwelling Jessica Risker has signed to the fab Western Vinyl label for the latest chapter in her lo-fi, psych-folk, DIY crusade. I See You Among The Stars is a beautiful record that takes in the influences of Nick Drake, Sibylle Baier and Broadcast at their most gentle. LP and CD on Western Vinyl.

Alela Diane
Cusp

Cusp is The 5th solo album by singer/songwriter Alela Diane and follows on from her 2013 album, About Farewell, written and recorded after her marriage to musical partner Tom Bevitori ended. Accidentally inspired by breaking a thumbnail and writing on the piano instead of finger picking her way on the guitar, Diane did a ‘Justin Vernon’ and shut herself away in a snow-covered cabin to write the album. Thematically it  concentrates on Motherhood, falling in love with your child, rather than  the lost love of its predecessor.

Frank Turner
Be More Kind

Frank Turner is one man. A man who has a guitar. A man who has, damn it all, a voice. Together they are used to make music. Sometimes the music they make becomes very popular indeed. Maybe this latest LP will be another one of those popular ones. Maybe it will teach us the error of our ways. Maybe we will learn to love each other again. Maybe we will change. Maybe we will be better. Maybe we will Be More Kind.

Grandaddy
Under The Western Freeway (20th Anniversary Edition)

Under The Western Freeway was the debut album by Grandaddy. Now, to coincide with the 20th anniversary of its release it gets a double LP reboot featuring some extra tracks in the form of previously unreleased demos that fans of the band will relish. It is arguably the band’s finest work and features such classics as AM 180, Summer Here Kids and Everything Beautiful Is Far Away.

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 the likes of - what the heck - Bob Dylan, will enjoy this.

Locks
Skeletal Blues

Twilit spectre songs for fans of being hypnotised into a good night's sleep, Locks strike magic in all the low keys on their Zen Ten release. Skeletal Blues is a fitting name for the record and despite its layer of mist, this record should speak for itself -- if not, it'll murmur, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Bert Jansch
A Rare Conundrum

Scottish folk supremo Bert Jansch produced his eleventh album for public consumption in 1977, leading a band that featured Ralph McTell among others. A recent stint in America seems to lend a touch of the blues to the traditional folk style, adding fresh flavour. This reissue edition on Earth Recordings adds an extra three tracks to the original tracklist: hooray!

Santa Barbara Honeymoon was one of the albums that grew out of the time that Scottish folk troubadour Bert Jansch spent in America, wherein he found new elements to bolster his sound. The album features as one of its highlights a cover of Jackson C Frank’s ‘Blues Run The Game’, and the reissue edition adds six bonus tracks. From Earth Recordings.

Neil Young
Roxy – Tonight’s the Night Live

Roxy - Tonight’s The Night Live was recorded on the opening night of the famous club on L.A.’s Sunset Strip in September 1973. Neil Young, with his backing band, The Santa Monica Flyers - Ben Keith, Nils Lofgren, Billy Talbot and Ralph Molina took to the stage to play a set of new material that would eventually make up the 1975 album Tonight’s The Night. Neil Young was reeling from the drug-related deaths of two friends, musician Danny Whitten and roadie, Bruce Berry, consequently there’s a cathartic energy to the live recording.

Red House Painters
Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach is the Red House Painters record that most resembles a Mark Kozelek solo record, predicting his future career a lone guitarist in Sun Kil Moon. It's personal but not in that annoyingly straight-forward way that accompanies his newest, most awful releases, instead showing the slower, more measured songwriting that made his earliest albums so beautiful. Slowcore meets folk rock and this reissue comes with the Shock Me EP too.

Laura Veirs
The Lookout

When she’s not teaching kids to play the guitar, Laura Veirs is a singer/songwriter. A good one too. The Lookout is her tenth album and first since her collaboration with like-minds Neko Case and K.D. Lang. The Lookout is inspired by wanting to take care, be aware and look after each other. This need was fired in Veirs, like so many things these days, by the aftermath of Donald Trump becoming president. The velvet voices of Jim James and Sufjan Stevens feature. Gold coloured vinyl LP and CD on Bella Union.

Haley Heynderickx
I Need to Start a Garden

Haley Heynderickx - not sure if that’s a nom de plume or not - drops her debut LP via Mama Bird (Courtney Marie Andrews, Vikesh Kapoor). The press release seemed quite keen for this blurb writer to not compare her to Angel Olsen, but when someone sounds like Angel Olsen then I guess someone just sounds like Angel Olsen. That is, of course, no bad thing, and tracks like ‘No Face’ have sincerity and beauty to match Olsen’s best work.

Dan Michaelson
First Light

Dan Michaelson is without his band The Coastguards but with the use of a full orchestra on his new album First Light. However, the lush instrumentation, arranged by Arnulf Lindner, doesn’t hide the stripped back nature of his earlier work and also takes influences that set him on his musical journey such as Townes Van Zandt, Lee Hazlewood, Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake. Gatefold LP and CD.

A Winter Light
A Winter Light

For his solo exhibition of the same name in a Sligo gallery, Mark Garry invited some chums to write and record music on location, in direct response to the pieces on display. These include Karl Burke, Nina Hynes and Claudia Schwab as well as actor Cillian Murphy and his brother Paidrig Murphy. Sax, strings, guitar, piano and percussion are what accompany the various singers in what is really quite a sweet collection of quiet alt-folk songs.

Marlon Williams
Make Way For Love

Make Way For Love sees a developing Marlon Williams moving away from his country typecast. The New Zealand native songwriter experiments with a more expansive sound, introducing strings, reverb and more dynamic guitar work along with the odd piano-led tune. It was partly recorded in his hometown of Lyttelton, New Zealand with fellow singer/songwriter Ben Edwards before moving the whole shebang to California where Noah Georgeson took the helm and recorded the lion’s share. Limited ‘indies only’ white vinyl LP (be quick if you want one of those!), standard black vinyl LP and CD on Dead Oceans.

Magic Castles are a Minneapolis group well-versed in the ways of blissfully floating psychedelically-inclined folk-rock.

Van Morrison
Astral Weeks

Astral Weeks was the second album by Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison. It was originally released in 1968. Morrison assembled a band of jazz musicians to create an album that was more expansive and meandering than his previous work. It’s highly regarded among fans and its influence has even shown on recent albums such as Primrose Green by Ryley Walker. Highly recommended!

Neil Young
Hitchhiker

Hey look, it's a new old Neil Young record ! Originally recorded in 1976 in Malibu, California, these 10 tracks see Young in acoustic bard mode, with nought but his guitar and voice to craft them from. While some of these songs have resurfaced in other forms, these stripped-back takes were all recorded in a single session. Maybe it'll solve the mystery of why he's so sad at the beach.

Lord Huron

I hope Lord Huron are okay. Their new album Vide Noir, meaning 'empty black', is an indie folk communion with the void. Assuming the seasons continue their endless deferral it might be the ideal album to listen to this supposed 'spring'. Haunting but warm, Lord Huron are the ideal companion to face the darkness.

Alela Diane & Ryan Francesconi
Cold Moon

The collaboration between alt. folk singer/songwriter Alela Diane and guitarist Ryan Francesconi (projects include Joanna Newsom’s Have One On Me) comes from both artists suffering from a lack of creativity. The pair met at a mutual friend's gig and from that chat decided to work together. Francesconi sent some guitar pieces to Diane for her to write lyrics to. She struggled at first finding inspiration but soon the creative juices started to flow. The resulting album Cold Moon is a collection of reflective and optimistic songs.

Joshua Hedley
Broken Man

Joshua Hedley was only the second country artist to sign to Third Man Records following Margo Price. This tells you that he’s a country artist with some credibility. Broken Man 7” came about due to Hedley’s insistence that 10 song albums are the best. When making his debut album, Mr. Jukebox, he recorded 12 songs - two too many. So here we have the remaining two tracks. Originally released on coloured vinyl for RSD in 2018, this is a new black vinyl version.

Field Report
Summertime Songs

With lovely, gauzy album art that'd be perfect for a crossover of Stranger Things and Chromatics, you'd be forgiven for entirely misunderstanding the Field Report mission statement. An indie rock band who namecheck Bon Iver about six hundred times in their press release, their gorgeous music twangs and lilts, impressing enough for Jeff Tweedy opening slots. Lovely.

Kudo’s unpretentious outsider delivery is a must for fans of Daniel Johnston and Jad Fair.

Also features an early appearance from Mick Ronson before he was nabbed by Sir David Bowie.

The A Side is the postscript to Boxing Day Blues, which closed Barnett’s critically acclaimed Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit album in brilliant yet solemn fashion. The b-side is a cover of Shivers, which was written by Roland S. Howard for the pre-Birthday Party band Boys Next Door. Essential for Courtney Barnett fans!

The Dead Brothers
Angst

Some camp, ghoulish folksiness from Swiss duo The Dead Brothers here. Angst is a sort of cabaret flip of Serge Gainsbourg and Tom Waits via Cab Calloway, Kurt Weill (not Vile) and the Tiger Lillies. It’s good clean fun and would have nailed them down a slot at Secret Garden Party if that festival were still going.

As if that wasn't an intriguing enough combination already, the album was recorded by Fugazi/Rites of Spring legend Guy Picciotto.

Bob Dylan
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

This is Bob Dylan’s second album, but its really the start of Dylan as we know it, as it contains mostly original compositions, including certified bangers like ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right’ and ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’! The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan was first released in 1963, but you can buy a brand new vinyl copy right here, thanks to Columbia!

Robbie Basho
Live in Forli, Italy 1982

It’s taken a few decades for the late Robbie Basho to start developing a deserved reputation. This 1982 recording captures an intimate Italian show full of stunning playing amid some awkward multilingual patter, and a soaring devotional vocal on the closing California Raga. A fine setting of music that is essential in every sense, enough to cut through the cynicism of his Takoma label boss John Fahey, and bear a major posthumous influence on the likes of Jack Rose and Jim O’Rourke.

Micah P. Hinson
And The Red Empire Orchestra

'And The Red Empire Orchestra' is the fourth record from the horror-flick country savant Micah P Hinson, who spends his time detailing gruesomely personal stories with titles like "Dyin' Alone" -- sparing none of the Texan slur that makes them feel all the more lonesome. The record continued to prove Hinson to be the possessor of one of the best baritones in the game.

Cath & Phil Tyler
The Ox and the Ax

Cath and Phil Tyler are a pair of lovely folkies from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne (though Cath originally hails from Massachusetts where she played in Cordelia's Dad). This is their third album and their first in eight years. Here they further explore their love of traditional songcraft, mountain banjo and Sacred harp singing.

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'd have to be to wear jerkins like that.

The No Sorrows
The No Sorrows

Take a lazy afternoon journey filled with rich harmonies, soaring playful violins and wistful charm. London’s noisiest Folk-Rock band The No Sorrows make music that takes you back to 1972 when the sun was always shining with Fairport Convention in tow, but with a bit more balls. The summer of love with a bit more scrumpy.

Sol Invictus
Necropolis

Sol Invictus are celebrating 30 years of neofolk! Well maybe that tone is inappropriate for band who've spent a decent amount of time longer than I've been alive channeling decline. This time its the decline of London (the titular Necropolis), as the weirdly band regret that it's not longer the seat of Empire.

Mike Cooper
Places I Know / The Machine Gun Co

We love Mike Cooper here at Norman, so it's great to see these classics from the vaults getting a long-overdue reissue - their first time back on vinyl since the '70s. This nimble-fingered avant-folk is rooted in blues and r'n'b with a much poppier singer-songwriter slant than his recent tropical-ambient steel guitar meanderings.

Bert Jansch
A Man I’d Rather Be (Part II)

The Man I’d Rather Be (Part II) is a 4 LP or 4 CD box set documenting the solo work of the legendary and influential guitarist Bert Jansch. The focus is on the late ‘60s and early ‘70s  where Jansch worked from a wider palette, mixing pop, blues and baroque into his folk sound. Bassist Danny Thompson and drummer Terry Cox are the most regular rhythm section used on these recordings and there are guest appearances from Mary Hopkin, Tony Visconti and Dave Mattacks. Many guitarists from Jimmy Page to Neil Young and Johnny Marr to Graham Coxon hold Bert Jansch in high regard.

Courtney Marie Andrews
May Your Kindness Remain


Arizona-based singer/songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews is back with the follow-up to her critically lauded 2017 debut breakthrough ‘Honest’. Written while touring her first record, ‘May Your Kindness Remain’ explores Andrews’ relationships (some lasting, some fleeting) with people she meets on the road, her gospel-soaked folk perfectly mirroring the tenderness of her writing.

Batteaux
Batteaux

This is a much needed re-issue of this sampled folk funk classic from 1973 which has been described as proto Yacht Rock. Melodic sun dappled songs with hints of country rock that stand pretty well against the likes of Crosby Stills and Nash whilst being underground and cool enough to be sampled by MF Doom.  
  • Vinyl LP (BEWITH027LP)

Tom Waits
Blue Valentine

This 1978 release is a real mixed bag that displays the contrasting extremes of Waits’ muse at the time. The album is bookended by a widescreen orchestral version of Bernstein’s standard Somewhere, and the smoky jazz guitar of the understated title track. In between there’s the tragicomic Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis and the raucous r’n’b of Whistlin' Past the Graveyard. Kentucky Avenue is the obligatory killer tearjerker.

Tom Waits
Foreign Affairs

1977’s Foreign Affairs is Tom Waits at his most big budget and nostalgically cinematic. The filmic feel is exemplified by the forties style epic Potter’s Field and Bette Midler duet I Never Talk to Strangers. It's heavily string and brass laden when the singer’s not mostly alone at the piano, as on standout Burma Shave. The furthest Waits would go in this direction, though Barber Shop hints at his ramshackle, bellowing future.

Tom Waits
Heartattack And Vine

Waits’ sixth album was his last non-soundtrack work before his reinvention on Swordfishtombones, but it’s already a shade less polished than his previous few outings.  Standouts include the raw blues of the title track, later adopted by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and future Springsteen hit Jersey Girl. The ballads are particularly devastating - the lover’s reluctant abscondment on Ruby’s Arms and On the Nickel's lament for the destitute.

The Ballad Of Shirley Collins

The documentary The Ballad of Shirley Collins traces the long and eventful life of our era’s foremost singer of traditional English folk song. The film captures sessions for her album Lodestar, her first after decades of tragic silence. It also recalls her 1959 song-collecting trip to the US with Alan Lomax, some of the fruits of which are included on this soundtrack. Also here is music from collaborators Michael J York and Ossian Brown, an unearthed home recording of Shirley’s late sister Dolly, and a previously unreleased 1958 BBC session. Available on vinyl, or on CD with a DVD of the film itself.

Michael Chapman
LIVE VPRO 1971

This Dutch radio recording offers a rare chance to hear the Yorkshire folkie onstage in the early years of his career. Accompanied only by bassist Rick Kemp, the singer / guitarist performs loose and laid-back takes on tracks from his then-current albums on the Harvest label. Both CD and red vinyl versions include a download of the entire rambling 90-minute set.

Craig Brown Band
The Lucky Ones Forget

Craig Brown is releasing his debut full-length with his Band on Jack White’s Third Man Records, and he’s stayed in keeping with the house style by recording with as few overdubs as possible. The Lucky Ones Forget is thus a direct expression of Craig’s country-indie-punk sound, close to what you might hear at a Detroit live show. Vinyl release.

Chris Weisman
Chaos Isn’t Single

Chris Wieseman has a unique minimalist take on the sort of singer songwriting as made by the likes of Todd Rundgren and Nilsson.  It's a stark sound that uses jazz and blues influence within Wieseman's unique sound palette. One day he'll reach paydirt a la Elliott Smith but for the moment let's keep him to ourselves ok?

David Kitt
Yous

Though he hasn’t released an album under his given name for nine years, David Kitt has been busy enough with his excellent house project New Jackson. Now that project providing him with his electronics fix, Yous is an earthy record that combines leftfield balladry in the vein of Arthur Russell’s Love Is Overtaking Me, skittering grooves of the Gainsbourg/Tellier school and the folk traditions of Kitt’s native Ireland. Out via All City, a label that continues to impress.

Us and Them
From The Corner Of My Eye

Us and Them, over and over again. That’s where the LCD Soundsystem comparison ends, mind. The latest single from the Swedish dream-folk duo is a stately, vaguely psychedelic procession of guitars, strings, harmonies and lightly-pattering drums. 'From The Corner Of My Eye' brings to mind Gillian Welch and Vashti Bunyan.

Soft Hearted Scientists
Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World

Some bug-eyed psych-folk from Wales here. Originally released in 2007, Soft Hearted Scientists’s Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World gets a timely reissue by You Are The Cosmos. The recent rise of Richard Dawson may owe something to this album, though SHS’s brand of British folk is far more day-glo and bushy-tailed. Sort of sounds like an LP Oliver Postgate might have made if he was into that sort of thing.

The Hanging Stars
Songs For Somewhere Else

The Hanging Stars are from grim old London but make the sort of sun dappled 60's and '70s influenced psychedelic folk and cosmic country that you usually find emanating from the other side of the atlantic. Here they follow up their much loved debut 'Over the Silvery Lake' with another batch of timeless, hazi Americana (but from England).

Jim Ghedi
A Hymn For Ancient Land

A Hymn For Ancient Land is Jim Ghedi’s second full length LP and sees his sparse, ethereal folk instrumentation made fuller and bolder through the inclusion of orchestral elements. Having travelled around the British Isles, Ghedi’s music is inspired by the sights and sounds he encountered and named after those places; Home for Moss Valley, Cwm Elan, Bramley Moor exc. The result is an enthralling expanse of folk music which shimmers between an ancient, haunting tradition and a modern ambience.

Spring & Shade is the latest release from PicaPica and is available on CD from Rough Trade.
