Thea Gilmore
Small World Turning

Small World Turning is the seventeenth album by renowned UK singer/songwriter Thea Gilmore. It features guest appearances from a bunch of folkies including Cara Dillon, Seth Lakeman and Ciaran Algar who, in the past, bagged the Radio 2 Young Folk Award. It may also be worth pointing out that Bruce Springsteen is a massive fan of her work. On Shameless.

Dawn Landes
My Tiny Twilight

Sold out - sorry!

Emma Russack
Winter Blues

Melbourne songwriter Emma Russack’s fourth album is the result of live, single-take, no-rehearsal sessions with Liam Halliwell (Ciggie Witch) and Dylan Young. The songs benefit from the immediacy and simplicity captured in this process, while Russack’s lyrics - “Winter blues / Blame it on the winter blues” are direct, unpretentious and poignant.

Gareth Dickson
Orwell Court

Gareth Dickson is a long-term collaborator of Vashti Bunyan’s and a deep-reaching songwriter / musician in his own right. Orwell Court is his fourth full-length solo album, continuing his path of quiet, private sounding music. These are songs for voice and folk guitar, but the rich layers of production and instrumental augmentation make ambient texture just as important. CD release from 12k.

Oliver Cherer
I Feel Nothing Most Days

Londoner Oliver Cherer is prolific. For the last few years he’s clocked up more than an album a year, either under his own name or as Dollboy or Gilroy Mere. The songs on his latest album, I Feel Nothing Most Days, date back to 1983, and were inspired by Ben Watt, Robert Wyatt and The Durutti Column. The discovery the songs on some old cassettes coupled with the fact that he found himself in possession of one of Vini Rielly’s guitars motivated him to finish the songs. LP on Second Language.

Lisa Hannigan & s t a r g a z e
Live In Dublin

Since beginning her career as backing singer for Damien Rice, Lisa Hannigan has come a long way. She is well established as an acclaimed singer/songwriter in her own right. She now finds herself backed up by the graceful muscle of classical orchestra, S t a r g a z e. Live In Dublin sees the orchestra’s backing turn Hannigan’s delicate folk into a widescreen experience.

Benoît Pioulard

An intimate album of warm melodic droning. Benoit Pioulard started the process of making this album by recording unexpectedly musical tones from animal or mechanical sources (eg. extractor fans), and then transposing those sounds to his guitar. Released on almost-identically-priced vinyl and CD by the ever-loved Kranky label.

Anni Hogan
Lost In Blue

A star-studded and aptly titled new album of forlorn songs by Anni Hogan (AEAEA, Attrition, Marc and the Mambas and many others.) Hogan’s enthusiasm for collaboration has surely led to lots of friendships over the years, which may explain the incendiary team she’s put together for this one. There’s Lydia Lunch, ex-Kraftwerk Wolfgang Flür, Kid Congo Powers, Scarlet West - to name just a few.

Anna St. Louis
First Songs

First Songs by Anna St. Louis was originally released in 2017 and it is exactly as the title suggests - her first songs. What she regards as her debut album, If Only There Was A River, followed this in 2018, but here we see her emerging as a singer/songwriter to be reckoned with. Sun-kissed Californian sound with the earthy depth of her Kansas roots. On Woodsist.
  • Vinyl LP (WOODSIST092CV)
  • Coloured vinyl
  • Limited edition

Trembling Bells & Alex Rex
I Am The King

Trembling Bells are a folky Scottish collective who feature drummer Alex Neilson who also appears here as Alex Rex. The Trembling Bells songs are inspired by Greek myths whilst the Alex Rex songs are both covers inspired by his late younger brother Alasdair - the traditional Night Visiting Song and John Cale's You Know More Than I Know. 

Michael Chapman
Another Story

Sold out - sorry!

Joy Williams
Front Porch

Joy Williams was one half of country/folk duo The Civil Wars, although she has also been a solo artist since 2001. Front Porch is her fourth solo album. It’s already making critics ears prick up - it may have been that the guy was the the hanger-on in The Civil Wars and Ms. Williams was the real talent. LP and CD on Sensibility Recordings.

The Felice Brothers

Prolific folk and country-rock outfit The Felice Brothers return with yet another studio album, Undress. Now in the second decade of their existence and having spent a lot of their career in introspection, their latest record sees the group turn outwards and address the political tumult around them. 

Johanna Samuels
Have A Good One

Johanna Samuels makes assured and beautiful songs that would sound at home in the warm ‘70s sun of LA’s Laurel Canyon. She has been inspired to love music by the likes of Neil Young, Tom Petty and Van Morrison, then to make music by Elliott Smith and Jon Brion. This self-titled mini album is her second release. Fans of Aimee Mann will also find plenty to like here. 10” mini album on Basin Rock.

Dana Gavanski
One By One

Sold out - sorry!

Joan Shelley
Rivers and Vessels

Sold out - sorry!

Lucy Roleff
Left Open in a Room

Second album from Melbourne-based folk singer Lucy Roleff, following three years on from her debut offering This Paradise. Once again, Roleff’s striking, swooping voice is the main attraction on Left Open In a Room, but the delicate acoustic picking of its predecessor is bolstered by the presence of a 36-string harp. 

Mount Eerie
2 remixes by Wolves In The Throne Room

Sold out - sorry!

The Mountain Goats
In League With Dragons

In League With Dragons is the seventeenth album by The Mountain Goats. This one sees John Darnielle and co. continuing their 28-year quest to convince us that monsters are okay, really. It comes in a number of increasingly fancy vinyl versions (some of which are limited editions, so be quick) and CD on Merge.

Brian Harnetty
Shawnee, Ohio

Sold out - sorry!

Billie Marten
Feeding Seahorses By Hand

Ripon's finest sweet voiced folk singer returns with her second album. Isabella Sophie Tweddle  - for that is her real name - made waves with her earlier more sensibly titled album Writing of Blues and Yellows which could have easily garnered comparisons to Laura Veirs. This time she's stripped it back to a more lo-fi sound. Could be interesting.   

John Hiatt & Lilly Hiatt
You Must Go / All Kinds Of People

Sold out - sorry!

Mutual Benefit
Just Another Diamond Day

For reasons best known to themselves Sufjan -lite indie folkers Mutual Benefit have covered Vashti Bunyan's Just Another Diamond Day in its entirety. Jordan Lee must either like the album a lot or see the mutual benefit in getting on board with a record that has become an essential album for bearded post folk hipsters to waffle on about.

Kevin Morby
Oh My God

After four albums and countless tours, songwriting ace Kevin Morby releases what he says is his most realised record yet. He recognises that the work has a religious theme though Morby isn't himself religious. It may be a more spiritual thing he has going on I guess. Anyway it's a double album opus written whilst away on tour plans and in hotels or whenever he got a minute to himself.  

Gob Iron
Death Songs for the Living

Gob Iron is British slang for the Harmonica. The phrase has been adopted by two of our American friends, Jay Farrar (Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt) and Anders Parker (Varnaline) for their American folk music revival project. Death Songs For The Living contains fresh takes on songs by Stephen Foster and Reverend JM Gates, among others and a new song penned by Jay Farrar. This album was originally released in 2006. LP on Transmit Sound.

Matt Kivel
Last Night In America

Sold out - sorry!

Josephine Foster
Fairy Faithful Harmony

I wonder if she can remember the time she played in Shipley? Here is a song cycle of 18 new songs by the Spain based singer songwriter. Here she self produces and accompanies herself on all kinds of instruments including guitar, piano an organ on an album exploring themes of morality and mortality. Which you do when you've been to Shipley.  

Heather Woods Broderick

Heather Woods Broderick played in Sharon Van Etten’s band. Now she’s going solo. Her new LP, Invitation, was recorded on the Oregon coast. It would seem that the huge rock formations and towering pine trees tempered by the miles of desolate beaches, and the silvering driftwood have informed the ebb and flow of this album. If you’re a fan of Sharon Van Etten, Weyes Blood, Julia Holter, Julianna Barwick or Marissa Nadler, then you should check this out. LP and CD on Western Vinyl.

David Allred
The Cell

David Allred is a Canadian songwriter that tackled themes of human fallibility and frailty on his first album, 'The Transition', and elucidates on this theme on sophomore record 'The Cell'. He has the same timbre of voice that John Martyn has, like a soft saxophone played in chocolate. If single 'Nature's Course' is anything to go by, 'The Cell' looks like a textured, beautiful, and, at times, grand album. I would also encourage you to watch the live version of 'Ahoy (1+1=X)' on YouTube, like a modern Arthur Russell; wow. 

Courtney Barnett
Boxing Day Blues (Revisited)

Sold out - sorry!


Sold out - sorry!

Stick In The Wheel
present From Here: English Folk Field Recordings Volume 2

Stick In The Wheel drop the second of their wonderful From Here compilations. As with 2017’s first collection, this set finds the Bristol duo venturing around the country to take the pulse of English folk music as it stands in these extraordinary times. Richard Dawson, Rachel Unthank and Nancy Kerr are but three of the contributing artists. From Here: English Folk Field Recordings Volume 2 is a necessary record.

Jade Bird
Jade Bird

Jade Bird was born in 1997, which makes us feel quite old. She hails from Hexham near Newcastle, but was lucky enough to record her debut EP, Something American in Upstate New York. She has now made her self-titled debut album, no doubt buoyed by the inclusion in her band of Jeff Buckley drummer Matt Johnson and Mystery Jets guitarist Will Rees and support slots with First Aid Kit and London Grammar. Legendary producer Tony Visconti has also praised her talent.

Elliott Smith
Either/Or: Expanded Edition

Twenty years on from its initial release, Elliott Smith’s much-beloved third album Either / Or receives an Expanded Edition reissue. As well as the original album in remastered form, this edition adds a disc of 1997 live recordings and as-yet-unreleased studio recordings. 

Damien Jurado
In The Shape Of A Storm

Damien Jurado is pretty prolific recording more-or-less and album a year since 1997. He may have just hit on a formula to make them more quickly, however. His new album In The Shape Of A Storm took just two hours to complete. Stripped of the hefty production of recent albums and the atmospherics of his early work, this is just Jurado’s voice and guitar. Should be good, then! 

John Paul White
The Hurting Kind

Sold out - sorry!

Vic Godard
Mum's Revenge

Sold out - sorry!

Daniel O'Sullivan

Daniel O’Sullivan, often spotted in Grumbling Fur but also recently as part of This Is Not This Heat, presents his second solo album of songs. The songwriting is at the core of Folly, though there is still plenty of textural intrigue in here, don’t worry about that O’Sullivan fans. Birth and death, family and love are all here in this highly personal and accomplished record.

Merry Airbrakes
Merry Airbrakes

Sold out - sorry!

Simone Felice
Puppet / Prisoner

Following on from 2018’s Projector album, ex-Felice Brother, Simone Felice has a new single, Puppet b/w Prisoner. Puppet, in a move that may surprise/please many Normanites, features Four Tet. B-side Prisoner is a previously unreleased track. 7” single on New York Pro.

Sun Kil Moon
I Also Want To Die In New Orleans

Sold out - sorry!

Glen Hansard
This Wild Willing

Sold out - sorry!

Joe Snape

Joe Snape returns to Slip (Mica Levi & Oliver Coates, Otto Willberg) with a set of avant-songs. Joyrobix is an LP in the vein of fellow Slip artist Chaines, one that almost completely jettisons all regular songwriting techniques for a voyage into wordless, screwed-up electronics. Think Scott Walker (RIP) if he’d ever had a going-over from A. G. Cook.

Michael Morley
Heavens Idleness Awaits

Sold out - sorry!

Roy Harper

Here’s a chance for the uninitiated to get into some poetic and jazz-flecked folk rock. Roy Harper is reissuing a few of his albums via his own Science Friction label. Folkjokeopus was originally released in 1969. It was produced by Shel Talmy (The Kinks, The Who) and featured pianist Nicky Hopkins (The Rolling Stones) and drummer Clem Cattini (Cliff Richard, Lou Reed). Harper has influenced the likes of Jethro Tull, Kate Bush, Pink Floyd and more recently, Joanna Newsom and Jonathan Wilson.

Sold out - sorry!

Ihor Tsymbrovsky

Sold out - sorry!

Emiliana Torrini
Love In the Time of Science

Sold out - sorry!

Sharon Van Etten
Remind Me Tomorrow

Remind Me Tomorrow is the first album in four years by Sharon Van Etten. Despite not making any solo albums in that time she’s been rather busy having a baby, gaining psychology qualifications, working with David Lynch and writing a score for the movie, Strange Weather. All this action has lead to her making a more upbeat album. Produced and arranged by John Congleton. LP or CD on Jagjaguwar.

Weyes Blood
Titanic Rising

Winning the award for most confusing, convoluted press release of the decade is the new album from Weyes Blood. It turns out her fourth album is influenced by things as disparate as Bob Seger, madrigal choirs, Hoagy Carmichael and scholar Joseph Campbell. It's also influenced by the Titanic -  a boat which sunk once. Her last album was just great so here's hoping those array of influences allow something equally magical here.  

Lawrence Arabia
Lawrence Arabia's Singles Club

A Kickstarted album if there ever was one, Lawrence Arabia’s Singles Club was a fan-financed project to release a digital single for every month of 2018. Lawrence Arabia succeeded, writing and recording 12 songs, released now as an album. Each one showcases the wide range of his style, from orchestral indie-rock to laid-back melancholy songlets.

The Tallest Man on Earth
Shallow Grave

Sold out - sorry!

Tyler Ramsey
For The Morning

Tyler Ramsey was the guitarist in Band Of Horses. For The Morning is his solo debut album. The cover depicts the beautiful scenery of his hometown in North Carolina which inspired the music. Expect a mix of country, folk and rock that builds a bridge between Neil Young and Fleet Foxes. LP and CD on Virgin.

Sold out - sorry!

Marry Waterson & Emily Barker
A Window To Other Ways

Marry Waterson is an English folk singer and member of the famous folk music family The Watersons. She is the daughter of Lal Waterson. Emily Barker is an Australian singer/songwriter whose music you may have heard on the UK version of crime drama Wallander. The pair met at a songwriting retreat run by Kathryn Williams. Their first album together, A Window To Other Ways, has thrown up a mixture of stiles from the obvious folk, with country, soul, blues and indie. LP and CD on One Little Indian.

The Saxophones
Singing Desperately Suite

When their recent album, Songs Of The Saxophones was in the can, The Saxophones, Alex Erenkov and Alison Alderdice, kept hold of the musicians that helped them to record some more songs. Singing Desperately Suite is the result. It recalls the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the recent output of Low. 4-track 7” EP on Full Time Hobby.


Sold out - sorry!

Rustin Man
Drift Code

Oh Talk Talk where art thou? With Mark Hollis last seen in the early 2000s trying to learn the clarinet this most brilliant and influential bands has been on hold. However not all is lost. Bassist Paul Webb aka Rustin Man is back with a new LP. His previous one was in collaboration with Portishead's Beth Gibbons. Here he goes it alone.

Country Funk Volume II 1967 - 1974

Intro Volume II of Light In The Attic's highly regarded Country Funk collection All tracks newly re-mastered Features cuts by Bob Darin, Townes Van Zandt, Gene Clark , Jim Ford, JJ Cale, Thomas Jefferson Kaye, Willie Nelson and more 2xLP housed in a deluxe Stoughton 'Tip-On' jacket Includes comic with story by Jessica Hundley along with Jess Rotter’s illustrations

Bill MacKay
Fountain Fire

Seasoned guitarist Bill MacKay returns to Drag City with new LP Fountain Fire. The Chicagoan’s latest effort is a collection of sprawling and psychedelic instrumental Americana. The likes of ‘Pre-California’ find a sweet spot between the widescreen vistas of Wilco and the peyote haze of Hejira-era Joni Mitchell.

Emily Jane White
Dark Undercoat

Sold out - sorry!

A Mote Of Dust

Stargazer Records (We Were Strangers, Caspian Sea Monster) drop the second LP from A Mote Of Dust, a solo project of Craig Beaton. Beaton previously played in post-grunge groups Ganger and Aereogramme, but the stuff he makes as A Mote Of Dust sees him indulging his quiet side. II is a collection of spare ballads and chamber-pop arrangements that recalls Mark Kozelek and Fink.

Joy Williams
Front Porch

Joy Williams was once one half of the Grammy-winning American country duo, The Civil Wars. She has been releasing music as a solo artist since 2001, however. Front Porch is her new single. It is taken from her as yet untitled forthcoming new album and backed with 'This Side Of Heaven', a song exclusive to this release. 7" single on Sensibility Recordings.


dbh made quite a stir both within and outside of the confines of these walls with his third album Mass so we're very happy that we have another chance to hear his second album again which has been re-pressed onto vinyl and CD. The musician (also known as Dan? Dave?) is adept at finger picked solo guitar pieces that owe as much to Vini Reilly as they do Michael Chapman.

Todd Snider
Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3

It needn’t really be mentioned what style of music is going to be on a record called 'Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3', a record whose cover features a giant image of a log cabin. Suffice to say it’s pretty rustic stuff, with the folk singer Todd Snider writing every piece of music, and playing each instrument on this twelve-track album which comes out via Aimless Records.  

Finn Andrews
One Piece At A Time

Finn Andrews - he of The Veils - with a solo LP of pleasant pop-rock ditties here. The tunes on One Piece At A Time are slightly folksy, slightly indie, slightly twee and slightly vaudeville. Cuts like ‘One By The Venom’ and ‘A Shot Through The Heart (Then Down In Flames)’ are pitched somewhere between Belle & Sebastian, Dresden Dolls and - oh, why not - Elton John.

Nation Of Immigrants

Sold out - sorry!

Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan is Bob Dylan’s first ever album, released way back in 1962 when no-one knew who this cat was (imagine that?!?). The tracklisting is mostly made up of traditional folk songs, with just two originals, meaning that you can really hear Dylan emerging from the folk tradition that made him. Vinyl reissue from Columbia.

Orville Peck

New album from the incredibly named Orville Peck (presumably named after a bite by green be-nappied 80s puppet). Mr Peck makes the sort of strung out Americana that also catches a kind of shoegaze drift. It's all love and loss croons, desert highways, no good hustlers, dogs in lying in dust,  pylons glinting in the late afternoon sun.      

Iron and Wine
Our Endless Numbered Days (Deluxe Edition)

He was oh so quiet then as if the beard was somehow muffling the sound of his voice and guitar. 15 years later and we are granted a deluxe edition with new artwork, a booklet and crucially 8 previously unreleased demos. A classic of its kind this was the first album Sam Beam used musicians other than himself but it still remains the quietest of journeys.   

This (Is What I Wanted To Tell You)

Veteran alt-country mister Lambchop releasing with perhaps his thirtieth. For This (Is What I Wanted to Tell You) Kurt Wagner teamed up with fellow alternative country scenester Matthew McCaughan, known for playing drums for sad beard Bon Iver. The new album continues with the thoughtful mix of electronics and quiet country sounds started on 2016’s FLOTUS. 

Lucy Rose
No Words Left

Sold out - sorry!

Andrew Bird
My Finest Work Yet

Andrew Bird’s modestly-entitled My Finest Work Yet is also the album with which he celebrates hitting a dozen studio LPs. This is, of course, another collection of bespoke Baroque/folk/leftfield pop from the artist you put on when you haven’t got a Sufjan Stevens record to hand. My Finest Work Yet features, among other things, a biography written by Dave Eggers.

Lucy Kitt
Stand By

After a teenage stint as a riot grrrl, Lucy Kitt has turned to the music that inspired her pre-rebelion years: Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan as the blueprint for her new album Stand By. The album recalls tales of the times she spent playing live in East-end pubs with her riot grrrl band, Ostara, her experiences of Canterbury University where she honed her songwriting craft and the highs and the heartbreaks along the way.

KT Tunstall
Eye To The Telescope

Way back in 2004 a wee Scottish lassie wowed TV viewers around the country with just a voice, acoustic guitar and a loop pedal. KT Tunstall made her debut on Later….with Jools Holland performing Black Horse And The Cherry Tree. The question is, was Ed Sheeran watching and is she to blame for his career? Anyway, the song came from her debut album Eye To The Telescope, which went on to sell bloody loads. 

Townes Van Zandt
Sky Blue

Sky Blue is a collection of previously unreleased acoustic songs by legendary American singer/songwriter Townes Van Zandt. He made the recordings in 1973 and they are released to celebrate what would have been his 75th birthday. The album contains early workouts of classics such as 'Poncho & Lefty' and 'Silver Ships of Andalar'.

Kathryn Joseph

Benjamin Francis Leftwich

You’d think Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s name would be good for anagrams but it doesn’t seem so. He’s certainly no Neil Warnock in that respect. Anyway, Gratitude is the York singer/songwriter’s third album following on from Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm (2011) and After The Rain (2016). Crystal clear vinyl and CD on Dirty Hit.


Sold out - sorry!

Sold out - sorry!

Son Volt

Country outfit Son Volt are releasing their tenth studio album Union on the 29th of March. Bandleader Jay Farrar has said 'a lot of these songs are songs of turmoil'. They discuss economic woes on 'The 99', freedom on 'Lady Liberty', and anarchy 'While Rome Burns'. For fans of Grant Lee Buffalo. On Transmit Sound.

Kevin Morby
Still Life

Sold out - sorry!

Howe Gelb

Former Giant Sand frontman Howe Gelb makes it a cool two-dozen solo albums with Gathered. On his latest LP we find Gelb doubling-down on that Tom Waits-inspired sound that has served him so well of late. We’re talking more The Heart Of Saturday Night than Mule Variations, by the way - crooners instead of howlers. Guests include M Ward, Anna Karina and the superbly-named Juan Panki.

Cousin Zaka (Vol. I)

While recording Slow Dance, french folk artist Blundetto also recorded the tracks you'll find here on Cousin Zaka (Vol. I). In a bit of a throwback to his first album, Bad Bad Things, this was recorded with that same DIY mix of impulsiveness and creativity. Despite that Slow Dance manages to be cinematic and sweeping all the same.
