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
Into The Light

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.

Nico
BBC Session 1971

The former Velvet Underground icon (her name is even an anagram of that) recorded this session for John Peel’s Top Gear show in 1971. Featuring four tracks from her John Cale-produced, harmonium-driven albums The Marble Index, Desertshore and The End, it was previously released on specialist Peel Sessions outlet Strange Fruit, but has been out of print for decades. All-analogue valve-mastered pressing.

Lizzy Farrall
All I Said Was Never Heard

I’m not saying it’s been a long time since we heard some straightforward lady-fronted indiepop here at Norman Records, but Lizzy Farrall’s debut EP is still a welcome addition. All I Said Was Never Heard showcases a touch of the dramatic and a knack for lush and catchy songwriting, and features her first singles Pack of Wolves and Broken Toy.

dbh
Mass

Though recorded in bustling Manchester, dbh’s (who has performed live with Julie Byrne) third album is much more reminiscent of where it was mastered, in the Outer Hebrides. Instrumental folk guitar tracks with a deftness of touch, Mass is for exploring big empty spaces on the back of a donkey rather than trying to get the Christmas shopping done at the Arndale.

Jim White
Waffles, Triangles & Jesus

This is his sixth studio album and is finely produced, journeying across the vast American continent. I’m not sure if that is a place I wish to visit these days, but Jim White makes it feel magical, heartwarming and limitless, helped in turns by his hometown (Athens) finest musicians, plus Dead Rock West and Holly Golightly. It’s a fine ensemble. The vinyl version is a double vinyl with MP3 download and includes ‘Memories Of Sochichiro’, exclusive to vinyl editions.

Johnny Cash
American V: A Hundred Highways

Johnny Cash's 93rd album (he was busy) was released posthumously, and is the fifth in the American series. A selection of covers from artists such as Gordon Lightfoot, Bruce Springsteen and Hank Williams. As with all the America albums, Cash's sultry trademark vocals add a touch of dark authenticity to the hand-picked songs. Available on 180g vinyl.

Roy Harper
Come Out Fighting Ghengis Smith

Harper’s Shel Talmy-produced second album, from 1968, is a psychedelic folk record that’s undeniably of its time, but also forward-looking, richly flavoured with idiosyncrasies and driven by free-flowing musical ambition. All this is evident on the meandering, raga-esque melody of Freak Street, the brooding, fourth-wall-breaking title track and the extended, episodic memoir of Circle. 180g reissue in deluxe gatefold with new artwork and notes.

Sarah Louise
Field Guide

Long and awaited is this reissue of Sarah Louise's wonderful Field Guide, an appropriately named and artwork-adorned record of leafy guitar explorations. Using her twelve-string as its driving force, the record is an evocative tone poem for Louise's home of North Carolina, inspired by hymnal Appalachian music but sounding new in its own right.

Lotte Kestner
Off White

Anna-Lynne Williams was the singer in US dream-pop band Trespassers William and has previously worked with the Chemical Brothers. Now she records under the moniker of Lotte Kestner. Musically she can be likened to Aimee Mann fronting Talk Talk or The Red House Painters. Off White is her fifth album and most powerful musical statement to date.

Angelo De Augustine
Swim Inside The Moon

Swim Inside The Moon is the new album from Thousand Oaks, California resident Angelo De Augustine. Just 24 years of age, the suburban singer-songwriter has made a deftly subtle, imperiously confident, sparsely instrumented record. It includes his mum’s century-old piano, a synth and a guitar; laid down straight to an old reel-to-reel tape machine. Notable influences: Nick Drake, Elliott Smith and Vashti Bunyan.

The Green Kingdom
The North Wind and the Sun

With a steady stream of releases over the past decade through Dronarivm, SEM, and Tench Michael Cottone has delivered a huge and diverse catalogue of sun drenched, heartwarming ambience as The Green Kingdom. His first release on Lost Tribe Sound sees them convince him to strip back the electronics and focus on more acoustic instrumentation. Find a tree to sit under in the shade and forget the big bad world.

Michael Hurley
Bad Mr. Mike

More than 50 years into his career as a songwriter, Michael Hurley still produces new work, and Bad Mr. Mike supplies the freshest cuts. Songs are old and new, instrumental and vocal driven, traditional and original: Hurley just lets the music flow out through him any way it can. Recorded solo at home with guitar, banjo and organ: he even did the sleeve art. On Mississippi.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Rust Never Sleeps

Classic Album Alert! Famously Canadian singer-songwriter guy -- that has a great voice and is actually very good -- Neil Young sees an album that he did in '79 with raucous band Crazy Horse reissued on pristine 180g vinyl. For the most part recorded live, with a few studio overdubs, it's an energetic and dynamically enlivening record. Young coined the phrase Rust Never Sleeps to avoid complacency and try a more positive and progressive approach to live performance. On Warner Bros.

Jung Body
Real Eternal Bliss

An 8-song 10” mini-album by this German-based singer-songwriter. Before you run screaming from the latter characterisation, this is engaging, wordy stuff, with a free-flowing delivery over backing that incorporates jazzy and ambient twists and turns. In the same ballpark as Brigid Mae Power or Peter Broderick, who Mr. Body shared a compilation with.

Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker
The Birds

For new EP The Birds, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker have stepped away from their full band set-up and gone with a more intimate approach. Electronics and drum machines lap at the edges of these melancholy new folk songs, written with migration and displacement in mind. A great subtle addition to this pair’s repertoire. 12” on Rough Trade.

Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker
Nothing Can Bring Back The Hour

Rough Trade bring back three quarters of an hour from 2014: that is, Nothing Can Bring Back the Hour by Josienne Clark and Ben Walker. Now available on vinyl, the pair’s chamber folk is rendered with great restraint, despite many personnel contributing additional instrumentation. The core theme seems to be the inscrutable phenomenon of time, via wistful lyrics and anachronistic combinations of traditional and modern songwriting.

The Western Caravan featuring Thirsty Dave Hansen
Psycho Santa

Who doesn’t love a novelty Christmas record? Written by Thirsty Dave Hansen in the back of an NYC cab in 1995, ahead of an impromptu performance with Beat Rodeo, and performed by The Western Caravan, ‘Psycho Santa’ is a riff on the Leon Payne-penned ballad ‘Psycho’, and a crowd-pleasing slice of rollicking festive rock.

Roy Harper
HQ

This 1975 album is one of Harper’s best loved, not least because it closes with the devastating When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease. Featuring a colliery band behind a lyric using the titular sport as a metaphor for mortality and nostalgia, it became an epitaph for John Peel. Other highlights include Hallucinating Light and the 13-minute The Game (parts 1-5), and David Gilmour, Bill Bruford and John Paul Jones make appearances. Long overdue reissue on 180g vinyl with updated artwork and new sleevenotes.

  • Genre(s):

Roy Harper
Bullinamingvase

Harper’s 1977 follow-up to HQ is another strong set. It’s dominated and bookended by the lengthy One Of Those Days In England, a lyrically complex epic that mixes historical allusion with personal reminiscences. Another highlight is the jaunty skiffle-like live favourite Watford Gap, which critiques the quality of cuisine available from roadside services. 180g gatefold reissue with new liner notes.

Crazy Heart (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Crazy Heart was the 2010 smash-hit Jeff Bridges film about a washed-up country singer, and of course such a movie comes with a high-grade soundtrack to match. This reissue of the soundtrack, marking the first occasion it has been made available on vinyl, features both country classics and Jeff Bridges’ own recordings of songs, some also featuring Colin Farrell. Double LP on New West.

Leonard Cohen
Ten New Songs

Cohen returned in 2001 with this album after almost a decade of silence and several years in retreat with his zen master. He shares the cover photo and vocals with Sharon Robinson, who co-wrote and co-arranged the material. Compared to the slick contemporary productions of I’m Your Man and The Future, the album has a more minimal, home-recorded style, digital but warm (not least due to Robinson’s singing) and occasionally bordering on R'n'B. A fine record that marked the start of a fertile late period.

O.D. Davey
Some Waking Woman

O.D. Davey is a British singer/songwriter and film maker who, to these ears at least, sounds like Richard Hawley singing Sparklehorse songs. There’s a lo-fi tinge to the shimmering songs on his second album, Some Walking Woman with close, intimate vocals akin to those of the late, great Mark Linkous. Vinyl LP on Tomlab.

Jason Molina
The Black Sabbath Covers

Black Sabbath’s influence runs far and deep, emerging in some unexpected places… Such as in the recorded catalogue of Magnolia Electric Co. singer-songwriter Jason Molina. These intriguing covers of ‘Solitude’ and ‘Snowblind’ were recorded at home in the 90’s, and have only just surfaced. The B-side of this 7” contains a Will Schaff etching.

Moonface
City Wrecker

Spencer Krug was one-half of the songwriting force for Wolf Parade, a cosmic indie rock band who pulled 'Apologies to the Queen Mary' out of the bag. He played synth and keys back then, and his solo project as Moonface has been an experiment in making pop music with electronics and random one-off instruments. Last year, he released 'Julia With Blue Jeans On', a collection of maudlin compositions for piano and nothing else. 'City Wrecker' is that record's follow-up EP, and based on "City Wrecker", also has its fair share of piano. It documents the time Krug spent moving out of Finland.

Mariee Sioux
Faces In The Rocks

The label that originally put out Faces in the Rocks by Mariee Sioux folded meaning the momentum the album had gained on the back of her performances with Brightblack Morning Light disappeared. She was part of the Californian folk revival along with Alela Diane, Devendra Banhart and Joanna Newsom but the label’s problems set her back. Fortunately, Faces in the Rocks has now been reissued. Faces in the Rocks is available on double vinyl LP.

Historically and musically essential vinyl reissue on Legacy.

The Doomed Bird of Providence
Burrowed Into The Soft Sky

The Doomed Bird of Providence is a project devoted to highlighting the darkness of Australian colonial history, and third album Burrowed into the Soft Sky is no exception. It does however break away from the previous two albums by leaving lyrics and vocals by the wayside in favour of two side-long instrumentals, each heavy with the weight of past atrocity.

'White Flowers' is the debut record from Lutine, the sparsest of folk duos comprising of artists Heather Minor and Emma Morton. Their understated, decidedly meek recordings concentrate on vocal harmonies, guitar strums and enveloping flourishes of piano. Rather than modernising the genre, Lutine take from various folk traditions, including neo-classical and baroque.

Wanda Junes are a group who are, quite firmly, from rural America. They take the relatively traditional forms of US folk / country, and marry them with touch of lo-fi indie thinking. The sardonically-titled Hi Fi Record Album is sometimes quiet and thoughtful, sometimes hollerin’ and hootin’, but always worth hearing. On Emotional Response.

Jim James
Tribute To

When George Harrison died in 2001, Jim James of My Morning Jacket reacted by playing a bunch of Harrison’s songs on an acoustic guitar into an 8 track recorder. The results are sparse and emotional and made into an album called Tribute To which was originally released in 2009. Now it is being reissued by ATO on LP and CD. The reissue will include the track, If Not For You, which didn’t make it onto the original release.

Rainer & Das Combo
The Texas Tapes

The Texas Tapes feel intimate and fragile, as if some songs are on the point of vanishing into dust. This vinyl reissue with download code includes a number of demo versions and mixes by Billy Gibbons (he of ZZ TOP fame). On Fire.

The Future is hereby reissued by Columbia on vinyl, with a download code.

Little Boxes and Magic Pennies: An Anthology Of Children's Songs (1960-1977)

One for the junior vinyl collectors out there, those who were juniors when Malvina Reynolds was active herself or, indeed, simply anyone with an interest in her ingenious songwriting. Reynolds wrote not only for children but about them, capturing in songs such as ‘Little Boxes’ the effect of modern institutional structures on the development of young minds and bodies. Deeply poignant, charming and provocative works, some of which having only now been released by Reynolds’ estate for the first time.

His music is useful as a document of cultural history, but also simply wonderful as music in its own right. Remastered reissue on Future Days Recordings.

Lucio Battisti
Amore E Non Amore

Amore E Non Amore is probably Lucio Battisti’s finest achievement, a concept record that combined his popular appeal with rock crunch some bold proggish instrumentals. Battisti really goes for it in the vocal department too! 1971 album remastered and reissued on 180g vinyl by Light In The Attic.

Lucinda Williams
Just A Little More Faith & Grace

Lucinda Williams is that pretty great country rawk musician who releases monolithic double albums every so often with plenty of good songs to boot. She recently released 'Ghosts of Highway 20' and this RSD 12" is a lil' missive from the same time, including an eighteen minute(!) version of "Faith & Grace", because the longer a thing is the more you'll be like "wow, that's really long".

The Delta Bell
Hold Fast The Fire

The Delta Bell hail from Brighton and describe themselves as post-country. Hold Fast The Fire is lush and confident record. It’s warm and anthemic with whisky-soaked laments, gothic country and plenty of heartbreak. This all highlights the songwriting prowess of vocalist Kate Gerrard and restrained musicianship of the band.

Andrew Bird
Echolocations: River

Echolocations: River is the second installment of a series of recordings by Andrew Bird that were recorded at a specific location. This time, under the Hyperion Bridge in Atwater Village, Los Angeles was the chosen site, which was though to have interesting acoustic properties. The album contains eight instrumental pieces inspired by the recording location. As with its predecessor, Echolocations: Canyon, Echolocations: River has a companion film made by Tyler Manson. LP and CD on Wegawam.

Neil Young
Harvest Moon

Ah Harvest Moon. Like Bat out Hell 2, it's a key example of how an artist going back to an original blueprint can reap dividends. On Harvest Moon Neil Young captured the vibe of his original Harvest album, with a series of beautifully evocative acoustic songs including utterly essential closer Natural Beauty.

Elliott Smith
Either/Or

Elliott’s third solo record, and his first after the break up of Heatmiser. An essential release in his back catalogue, Either/Or maintains the lo-fi intimacy of previous efforts Roman Candle and Elliott Smith, whilst upping the complexity and ambition of his arrangements. Miss Misery was even nominated for a bloomin' Oscar! Reissued on a 180gm LP, on Universal. Sad!

Harry Stafford
Guitar Shaped Hammers

Harry Stafford might be known to you from his time fronting the band Inca Babies, where he sung and played guitar. But look! No guitars on this record here. Instead, Harry has transferred his talents to piano (the ‘Guitar Shaped Hammers’ of the title), playing punky piano blues with some dubby touches in the production. Fair play Harry, the instrument transfer worked. On Black Lagoon.

Kikagaku Moyo
Forest Of Lost Children

Kikagaku Moyo improvise like they're falling through a black hole and can jam forever, and so Forest of Lost Children is just a snippet of their work together, a record that explores their meandering psych and folk workouts and picks out the best bits. This record buoys an Eastern influence and favours a frenetic clash of sounds over particular arrangements. They still sound tight, though.

Lost Harbours
Towers of Silence

Hauntingly beautiful folk from the ever shifting line-up that makes Lost Harbours. Led by Richard Thompson and Emma Reed, they bring in some extra vocalists, and paint a drone inspired picture of alt-folk. With influences coming from Current 93, Six Organs Of Admittance, Coil and Wolf Eyes. LP on Liminal Noise Tapes.

Adrian Crowley
Dark Eyed Messenger

Sad songwriter Adrian Crowley's fourth album for Chemikal Underground (though he did plenty before this association) finds him disassociating himself with the instrument that has been a constant companion throughout his career. The humble guitar. Instead 'Dark Eyed Messenger' sits Crowley's chocolate brown voice above a combination of pianos, mellotron and strings. Stark.

Mick Harvey
Intoxicated Women

Mick Harvey has had an up-close-and-personal view of some of the last few decades’ finest songwriters, as veteran sideman to PJ Harvey and Nick Cave. For Intoxicated Women, he takes on the oeuvre of another legend of song: Serge Gainsbourg. Several guest vocalists help him out, such as Andrea Schroeder on the notable German cover of ‘Je T’aime’. On Mute.

The Starless Room lets Johnston go in his own direction, allowing his songs to be exactly what they need to be. Out on Clouds Hill.

Angel Olsen
My Woman

Angel Olsen has made some really good records that are sorta singer and quite songwriter but equally rock and quite roll, too: Burn Your Fire was a complex and sprawling record at times, jubilantly anthemic at others, and occasionally isolated in its acoustic balladry. 'My Woman' is her third record and it plans to maintain the reverence to reverb and raucousness that went along with the quiet, lo-fi moments.
