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

The Bert Jansch estate has worked with Earth Recordings to bring us A Man I'd Rather Be (Part 1). The collection arrives as a 4-LP set in case-bound book or 4-CD set in book-back packaging. With music culled from the highly prolific Jansch's '60s years, namely: 'Bert Jansch'; 'It Don't Bother Me'; 'Jack Orion' and 'Bert & John' -- so Part 1 starts, logically enough, at the very beginning. These four records were recorded in the space of just 2 years, and amazingly enough were of the highest quality.

Charlotte Gainsbourg
5:55

Charlotte Gainsbourg’s lounge folk sophomore album 5:55 gets the reissue treatment here on double vinyl. Wispy vocals meet with the staunch Frenchness of Air and the expansive production of Nigel Godrich to create a piece of work that sits out of step time and the weight of expectation. Out on 2LP vinyl from Because Music.

Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band
Adios Senor Pussycat

One of the UK's most underrated yet much loved amongst those in the know songwriters Michael Head has a storied history in bands like the Pale Fountains, Shack and the remarkable Michael Head and the Strands. This is his first new material in over 11 years and it will be a joy to hear his music again. It's poetic and romantic and draws comparisons to Love, the La's and Nick Drake but with a ragged, workingman edge that ensures what he lacks in national treasure status is made up for with an enthusiastic cult following.

With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven is a series of three albums released simultaneously, and Volume Three, sub-titled Heathen Folklore, is supposedly the most fucked-up of the three records.

Jono McCleery
Seeds Of A Dandelion

We've heard this one in the office quite a bit, and it has become a personal favourite of mine. Jono McCleery's voice is truly brilliant. He sings with so much soul and genuine passion. It's raw and it's beautiful. Available on vinyl LP and CD and both have been released on Counter Records. Trust me. It's a good 'un.

The Gentle Good
Y Gwyfyn

Y Gwyfyn is an EP specially released for 2018’s Welsh Language Music Day. The EP is a combination of brand new material and outtakes from the sessions that produced their Welsh Music Prize winning album Ruins/Adfeilion. The EP features beautiful string arrangements by Cardiff-based composer, Seb Goldfinch which are performed by the Mavron Quartet. Fans of Alasdair Roberts might want to give this a go.

Blue Hills is a reissue of American folk singer, Michael Hurley’s 2010 album, his 23rd long player. To most, he will be a treasure ripe for discovery.

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).

Micah P. Hinson And The Opera Circuit
Micah P. Hinson And The Opera Circuit - 10th Anniversary Edition

The biggest surprise of 2017 so far as that Micah P Hinson wasn't down to play at the Trump Inauguration  - his political views lying somewhere to the right of the Most Important Man in the World (tm). Instead he's been getting together a 10th anniversary re-issue of this his second album which was recorded while he was addicted to painkillers after a 'play fight' with a pal led to a bad back. His sensuous chocolate drawl and sensitive songwriting belies the real Hinson in those days and at the time this was viewed as a supreme example of caramel flavoured alt country.

Waxahatchee
Live at Third Man Records

Katie Crutchfield’s Waxahatchee project follows in the footsteps of Chain & The Gang, Shabazz Palaces, Kid Congo and loads more by releasing in the Live At Third Man Records series. Stripping away the beefy post-grunge stylings of her studio LPs, this two-track 7" features little more than acoustic guitar and Crutchfield’s powerful alto. The stark treatment makes her cover of Lucinda Williams’s ‘Greenville’ a particularly arresting treat.

Virginia Trance
Virginia Trance

Scott Ryan-Davis used to ply his trade in the bands Images and Psychic Ills. His first eponymous solo album has been recorded under the name Virginia Trance and follows on from the self-released 7”, Your Guru. His approach was to let everything he did (guitar and vocals) be loose, whilst being underpinned by a steady rhythm section, but ultimately stripped back without any fancy production.

Molly Drake
The Tide's Magnificence

The songs of Molly Drake, the mother of a certain other Drake in English musical history, were a revelation when they were first released in 2013: tender, intimate pieces recorded at home with Molly’s amazing cut-glass voice. The Tide’s Magnificence takes those nineteen songs and adds seven further recordings, previously unreleased. The two CDs are housed in a beautiful thick hardback book of Molly’s poetry along with additional written materials. From Fledging.

Her prolific recent years have included work with United Bible Studies, The Owl Service, The Fieldmouse Conspiracy, and even Cathedral.

Ariel Pink & Weyes Blood

Moving fairly violently between tasteful folksy acoustic songwriting and explosions of operatic intensity, this collaboration is, if nothing else, unpredictable. Rich layers of instrumentation and clashing performance styles add to the exciting uncertainty, and over the four tracks you can be sure that weird and charmed places will be reached.

Welcome to a series of Light In The Attic reissues of the selected works of Lee Hazlewood.

O.D. Davey
Catgut Tape

Available on 12” LP or CD. O.D. Davey’s debut album Catgut Tape is made up of high romanticised electronic folk, having already been compared to the stripped back stylings of Thom Yorke there’s a definite taste of a younger version of a contemporary David Sylvain to his voice and the sparseness to the production.

Neil Young + Promise Of The Real
The Visitor

For many years now, Neil’s M.O. has been to rush into the studio and unburden himself of whatever his latest preoccupation might be. Unsurprisingly, this time it involves the current occupant of the White House. Young’s always had a habit of proclaiming his US patriotism, but here at least, the title undercuts the irony of his status as a Canuck blow-in. Judging by the preview tracks, his intent is to combat the crassness and divisiveness in American politics with rousing affirmations of positivity and defiance. The dense clutter of Already Great and the orchestral bombast of Children of Destiny don’t give much indication as to what the album as whole will be like, but it’s reasonable to expect a couple of gems in there. and that Promise of the Real will lend the songs their mixture of comparatively youthful energy and rootsy swagger.

Kind of eponymous album from East London/Essex weird folk duo, The Cold Spell. I say kind of because, for those of you not fluent in morse, those dots and dashes spell the band's name. Eccentric songs with a traditional soul made from acoustic guitars, drum machines, and a The Wicker Man-ish sense of unease.

Frank Turner
Tape Deck Heart

Tape Deck Heart sees singer songwriter Frank Turner release his fifth studio album. This work has been described as a ‘break up album’, capturing the emotions triggered by the failure of a long term romance. Turner himself gives helpful insight into the work: "There’s a lot of stuff on this record about loss and failure in relationships, about what happens when something that was supposed to be timeless runs out of time." Clearly this is an honest, and as ever, heart felt record.

H.C. McEntire
Lionheart

Lionheart is the debut solo album by indie/country band Mount Moriah frontwoman H.C. McEntire. The album is personal and autobiographical in terms of people and places and mixes her own slants on country, pop and gospel. It came about through her wish to rescue country music from the hideous stereotypes which are synonymous with the genre. The album was recorded at home and on the road when she was part of Angel Olsen’s touring band. LP and CD on Merge.

John Johanna
I'll Be Ready When The Great Day Comes

Kristian from Capitol K has had a hand in this latest release from spiritual rocker John Johanna. Bringing together four previously cassette-only tracks with four exclusives, I’ll Be Ready When The Great Day Comes is psychedelic in the proper sense. Bringing together Eastern tonalities, drone, blues rock, raga and more, the tracks here have a propulsive and hypnotic quality that is only accentuated by Johanna’s chanted spiritualist texts.

Margo Price
Paper Cowboy

Folky country bumpkin Margo Price dons her cowboy hat and trusty acoustic (maybe a backing band too) for a pair of limited 7" singles on none other than Third Man records. The singles comprise two halves of an EP, so make sure you don't just get half an EP because you'll just be wondering what could have been. Paper Cowboy is said to be built for the summer festival circuit, so get them while they're (it's still) hot !

Alec Cheer
Alec Cheer

Alec Cheer's self-titled album is a delightful, refreshing story of acoustic guitar pickings and strums, evoking the spirit of Fahey, Drake and Martyn. These rural, largely pacey tunes bounce along merrily, interspersed with more reflective pieces containing a slightly eerie Gravenhurst-esque atmosphere.

David Kitt
Still Don’t Know

Irish singer/songwriter David Kitt returns with Yous, his first album in nine years. The release is preceded by this 10” single Still Don’t Know. In the intervening years following his last album, 2009’s The Nightsaver, David Kitt has been a member of Tindersticks live band and worked as an electronic DJ and producer under the name New Jackson, which, along with some well curated DJ sets saw him remixing The xx and Shit Robot. All this dabbling has undoubtedly influenced his latest work.

Will Samson
Ground Luminosity

Ground Luminosity is the fourth solo release from Brighton based musician, Will Samson. The sound Samson’s found on this LP is a subtle electronic one, where electronic beats and effects pop from beneath emotional, swooning violin and woozy guitar. It’s an album which beautifully melds the old and the new in a way that is rarely so accomplished.

A Grave With No Name
Passover

A Grave With No Name is a fitting moniker for purveyors of a downbeat and melancholy strain of Americana (despite being London-based). Their fourth album sees the continued expansion of their originally lo-fi sound, with central figure Alex Shields drafting in Frank Ocean’s bassist Ben Reed. For fans of Neil Young, Silver Jews and Sun Kil Moon.

Various
Experimental Batch 26

What a winning scheme for an album: a varied bunch of musicians all gathered up together and given a week in a single space to make something. The line-up was Pictish Trail, James Yorkston, King Creosote, Lomond Campbell, Suhail Yusef Khan and the band Slow Club, adding up to a very eclectic supergroup indeed. Experimental Batch 26 contains the intriguing results. LP on Dewar House.

Argentinian singer-songwriter Juana Molina gets easily lumped into a category far too broad for her impressively unique style. Her seventh full length, Halo touches all bases - from up close and playful tracks like Cosoco to the dark and claustrophobic Lentísimo Halo. Features a few guest appearance from Deerhoof's John Dieterich.

Serge Gainsbourg
Intoxicated Man

First of all, what an astonishing title for an album. Intoxicated Man features classic Serge Gainsbourg material from the period 1958 to 1962, when our man was in his simmering, swaggering pomp. Intoxicated Man maps out a very particular style of cool, which Serge absolutely excels at. Double LP on Le Chant du Monde.

Kevin Morby
Still Life

The sweet-voiced Kevin Morby, known for his more modest roles as bassist in Woods and one part of Cassie Ramone's band the Babies, is set to release his second solo record, 'Still Life'. It follows up the eclectic folk record 'Harlem River', which ranged from plaintive acoustic ballads to smoky barroom guitar riffing. From hearing "Parade", one would expect 'Still Life' to be a folk rock record with booming, confident arrangements, bringing in trumpets that sound quite Okkervil River and subtle bass playing that recalls 'Blood on the Tracks' era Bob Dylan.

Marisa Anderson

Marisa Anderson’s new record is intended to be the soundtrack to an imaginary film about sci-fi goings on in the deep Sonoran desert, and it's good enough to make you wish the film actually existed. Into The Light is made up of multi-tracked solo electric guitar (plus lap and pedal steel), with Anderson finely meshing her phenomenal fretwork into sensitive and dramatic pieces. LP on the Chaos Kitchen and Mississippi labels.

Melanie De Biasio
Lilies

We loved Melanie De Biasio's recent Blackened Cities release but here she drops the big one on her third full length album. Her sound is something like Nina Simone channelling Bark Psychosis as she sings the blues over spectral spooky jazz with a post rock sense of ambition. Looking forward to it.

Jessica Lea Mayfield
Sorry Is Gone

Sorry Is Gone, Jessica Lea Mayfield has called it -- the latest (fifth) studio album from the Ohio singer-songwriter finds her with a redoubled confidence and positivity. Her music is her voice, her self-therapy. Recorded at Electric Lady studios with producer John Agnello, Mayfield's reverb-soaked bluegrass chimes against coruscating guitar lines. Raw and compelling, fans old and new are sure to connect. Choose from LP or CD, on ATO records.

Grizzly Bear
Painted Ruins

Grizzly Bear have been away for about five years now and have now returned with their first since the wild and windy ‘Shields’. Early tasters of their new material give the impression that they are heading in a well constructed synth pop direction with their unique take on harmony and melody intact. Bound to be much anticipated.

Neil Young
Peace Trail

Peace Trail features ten tracks that see Neil Young taking an acoustic approach once again. After recording a couple of albums with Promise Of The Real, including his recent live opus Earth, he has decided to simplify things and work as three piece with Jim Keltner  and Paul Bushnell backing him on drums and bass respectively. The album was recorded at Rick Rubin’s studio, Shangri-La, and produced by Neil Young produced along with Jim Hanlon.

Kyle Craft
Dolls of Highland

Kyle Craft is a singer-songwriter with a very bold vocal style: he doesn’t restrain himself, that’s for sure, hollering his guts out as he delivers his impassioned lyrics. Dolls of Highland, his first record for Sub Pop, has a grand sweep to it, recalling the drama of gospel music and the tang of original rock and roll. Released in CD, LP and special ‘Loser Edition’ LP versions.

Freakwater
Scheherazade

Freakwater do make country music, but they only do it on their own terms. So that means subtle harmonies from the two singers, delicate bass playing from Dave Grey and a blend of bluegrass, folk and blues. Scheherazade is their first album in a decade and has been put out by Bloodshot on vinyl LP and CD.
