Lee Hazlewood
Requiem For An Almost Lady

Light In The Attic Records are filling their boots with the bittersweet country bliss of Lee Hazlewood, this time turning to the quintessential break-up record Requiem For An Almost Lady, originally released in 1971. Broken-hearted but defiant reflections on loss and love over a backdrop of languid guitar – country music sounds best when it’s down on its luck, and Hazlewood sings like he just lost his last dime.

Saulius Petreikis & Domas Strupinskas
Lietava

Saulius Petreiki and Domas Strupinskas’s album Lietava presents an array of sixteen traditional folk instruments from their native Lithuania, all of which have fallen out of regular public use and some of which have scarcely even been recorded before. This album succeeds as a set of compositions and as a work of cultural archaeology. Released by Thestate51 Conspiracy.
  • Vinyl LP (CON208LP)

Son Volt
Straightaways

Repress of Son Volt’s now two decade old sophomore album, Straightaways. Smooth and heartfelt alternative country rock with plenty of guitar twang built around ex-Uncle Tulepo singer/songwriter Jay Farrar’s warm, emotive voice. Pressed on 180g vinyl. Just make sure you don’t mention Wilco.

C Joynes / Nick Jonah Davis
Split Electric

Both C Joynes and Nick Jonah Davies are taking a slight step in the dark on this release: possibly one reason they are doing it together. Split Electric is so titled because it finds the two experienced acoustic guitarists plugging in and going electric, providing a whole new set of audio corners to explore. Out on Thread Recordings, with original artwork from Richard Dawson.

Sun Kil Moon
Universal Themes

New album from Mark Kozelek’s Sun Kil Moon project. Universal Themes contains the familiar Kozelek sound and approach (forward-strolling rock and lyrics on whatever is on Kozelek’s mind that day), but this time with help from Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley. On Rough Trade with a desolate phone-box image on the sleeve.

Songs: Ohia
Magnolia Electric Co. (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Magnolia Electric Co was the final album Jason Molina released under the name Songs: Ohia. Whilst touring the album, he decided to change the name of the band to Magnolia Electric Co (who never released an album called Songs: Ohia). You can hear something had changed - this Steve Albini-produced record has a harder edge than previous releases. Sadly, Molina died in March 2013 of alcohol-related organ failure. Double vinyl album, 10 year anniversary edition.

Martin Carr
The Breaks

Martin Carr you may remember was the main songsmith in The Boo Radleys.  Responsible for some good early shoegazy work.....and then they did 'Wake up, Boo' didn't they? He then went on to do Brave Captain and is now solo. Why doesn't the other man do music? Y'know the one with the Terry Nutkins hair (before it sensibly got shaved off). Probably because Carr wrote all the songs. Anyway here he is doing some kinda fey chirpy indie pop with lots of electronics and synths barging into the mix. Harmonious stuff which will appeal to later era Boo Radleys.

The Lilac Time
No Sad Songs

Available on either 12” vinyl or CD from Tapete. Stephen Duffy has had quite the journey being a founding member of Duran Duran and then moving on to creating Simon and Garfunkel esque melancholic folk pop with The Lilac Time, and becoming obvious influences on Belle and Sebastian and The Kings of Convenience.

Tom Waits
Blood Money

Blood Money was Tom Waits 2002 album which featured songs written for the play Woyzeck. It was originally released simultaneously with the album Alice, another album with songs written for a play.

Leonard Cohen
Recent Songs

Recent Songs by Leonard Cohen saw the Canadian singer/songwriter reverting to his acoustic and folk roots, albeit with a number of other influences he’d picked up along the way. It was originally released in 1979 and was the follow-up to Death Of A Ladies man, an album made under difficult circumstances - mainly the fact that the producer was Phil Spector and he caused chaos in the studio. This chaos brought about Cohen’s decision to rein in the experimentation and keep things relatively simple here. Reissue LP on 140g black vinyl.

Leonard Cohen
Various Positions

Various Positions was the seventh album released by Leonard Cohen. It was originally released in 1984. American singer and lifelong friend of Cohen, Jennifer Warnes features on every track. This is the album that includes the original version of Hallelujah, the song covered by John Cale, Jeff Buckley and Rufus Wainwright to name a few. This reissue is pressed on 140g black vinyl.

Leonard Cohen
Death Of A Ladies' Man

Reissue of Leonard Cohen’s 1977 fifth studio album Death Of A Ladies’ Man. Phil Spector’s orchestral ‘Wall of Sound’ was imposed upon his usually-sparse vocals, making for mixed reviews and debate around the 8-song release. An interesting piece in the Cohen canon. LP reissued on Columbia.

Daniel O'Sullivan
VELD

Daniel O’Sullivan, of Grumbling Fur, Ulver and Aethenor (and that’s not all!), is in solo mode on VELD, but that doesn’t mean he has limited himself to a single approach. VELD is an album of pop songs, but electroacoustic abstractions keep lapping at the edges of the song structures. Released on O Genesis.

Astor is releasing the single via his new label Tapete. Initial releases on the label have been rather interesting.

F.S. Blumm
Welcome

F.M. Blumm’s many years of music-making, both acoustic and electronic, solo and in collaboration (with David Grubbs, Nils Frahm etc.), has led him to the point of Welcome, this eclectic-sounding album of songwriting. These productions sound grand, but on an intimate scale, if that makes any sense (it doesn’t, but hey). Released by Karaoke Kalk.

Bob Dylan
John Wesley Harding

John Wesley Harding, released in 1967, is a key album for Bob Dylan, as it finds him taking a left-hand turn from his beat-poet electric music into the territory of folk, country, and God. But as this is only the first step in that direction, it makes a good introduction into that period of the great man’s catalogue. Reissued on vinyl by We Are Vinyl.

Yusuf / Cat Stevens
I Love My Dog / Matthew & Son

It's been fifty years since Cat Stevens (now known as Yusuf Islam) released his debut LP Matthew & Son, and he’s celebrating with a 7” release of new versions of two tracks. As well as the LP’s title track, we also have the lovely canine ode I Love My Dog to enjoy. Yusuf recorded these new takes at Jack White’s Third Man label headquarters as part of their Blue Room Sessions.

This is the debut album of Margo Price, a new country artist who seemingly has the whole history of Nashville and Memphis running through her veins. Midwest Farmer’s Daughter has the kind of poetic narratives the best country relies on, as well as a classic bar-band sound and Margo’s expressive vocals. Out on Jack White’s Third Man Records.

Daniel Gadd

Debut from British-South African singer/songwriter Daniel Gadd. Sensitive and skillful guitar playing, with eight storytelling/poetic songs which nod to his influences, Bob Dylan and early Leonard Cohen. Gadd has worked on composing for film and television as well as solo songwriting. The songs feel warm and welcoming, as well as introspective. CD on 107 Recordings.

Tanya Donelly
Swan Song Series

Tanya Donelly founded Throwing Muses. And also The Breeders. And also Belly. So she certainly knows what she is doing when it comes to left-of-the-mainstream songwriting. Most of the contents of Swan Song Series were previously released as digital EPs: now they are gathered together in this attractive 3CD / 3LP set. On American Laundromat.

Chris Gantry
At The House Of Cash

Chris Gantry was a songwriter to the stars and  performer in his own right. He’d been offered lodgings at Johnny Cash’s Nashville home in the early ‘70s after some police/weed trouble. He also convinced Cash to let him record in his studio. At The House of Cash was the result and is one of Nashville’s more leftfield albums. Too weird even for the ‘drug people’ according to Cash. Because it’s different nature, it’s only seeing the light of day now. Think some sort of more cosmic version of Tim Buckley jamming with The Incredible String Band.

Ed Askew
A Child In The Sun: Radio Sessions 1969-1970

After recording the acid folk classic Ask The Unicorn LP in 1968, Ed Askew ostensibly stopped making music. It was only in the early 2000s when a second album was discovered that more research was done. It was this snooping that unearthed a whole load of treasures, including the tracks that make up A Child In The Sun: Radio Sessions 1969-70. Some of these cuts give the originals a run for their money too. LP on Drag City.

Gun Outfit
Out of Range

The cover of Gun Outfit’s fifth long-player, Out Of Range, instantly gives you the feel of this album.

Tom McRae’s eighth studio album Ah, The World! Oh, The World! Finds the English singer-songwriter, perhaps understandably, in rather a melancholic mood. The album title is a phrase taken from McRae’s favourite novel, Moby Dick, but it gets across perfectly McRae’s state of perplexity and dissatisfaction following Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. He’s poured his feelings out on this album.

Songs To Play finds Forster in a fun and adventurous mood. It is a mix of the melodic pop and singer/songwriter tunes you’d expect with the odd experimental twist.

As with her previous material, All American Made is out on Jack White’s Third Man Records.

The lyrical content ranges from the intimately personal to the broadly existential, leavened with plenty of deadpan humour. This vinyl reissue includes a download code.

Lee Hazlewood & Ann-Margret

There’s no shortage of gold dust Americana for Light In The Attic to mine from the long and winding catalogue of Lee Hazlewood, but one of the easiest picks must have been this perfect pairing with Ann-Margaret Olsson. Released in 1969, this full-bodied, red-blooded record veers from fiery acid rock to soulful strut and of course a healthy dose of forlorn country, with the chemistry between Lee and Ann-Margaret to wash the whole thing down.

Lomond Campbell put together his debut album Black River Promise in the manner of several lonely-eyed young men before him: by decamping to somewhere remote (in this case, an abandoned school in the Scottish Highlands) to be alone with his thoughts and his music. The pop-folk results are deep and remarkable, augmented with a ten-piece string ensemble. Clear LP on Triassic Tusk.

Scott Walker
Scott 3

On his third attempt at being the one and only Walker brother worth a damn, the not-yet-evil Scott Walker got more miserable and eerie, taking his baroque pop disciplines and the usual commanding baritone and marrying them with the darkest of lyrics. He hadn't quite regenerated into the avant-garde trickster who gets soused on the regular, but 'Scott 3' isn't the friendliest of pop records.

Jake Bugg
Hearts That Strain

Recorded in Nashville with some of the best players in the history of recorded music, lord knows what these veterans of Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick sessions felt about this nasal voiced Nottingham upstart. Still, Bugg is nothing if not ambitious and this latest soul influenced opus contains collaborations with Black Keys Dan Auerbach amongst others.

Mumbles
Hinterpest: a story of wildflowers, buttonweeds and cattle skulls

A curious creation from Sweden’s Mumbles here. Hinterpest: a story of wildflowers, buttonweeds and cattle skulls is a little story, telling a year in the life of some 1800s settlers. It is partly scripted, partly performed on instruments like violins, and feels like a wonderful experimental radio play, especially when handmade sound effects are deployed. Limited edition cassette on Leafdog.

Lords of Thyme
Pellets

Presented as ambassadors for the new wave of old English folk music, The Lords of Thyme commit their debut album to wax after making a gentle splash with the CD version last year. Pitching themselves between Nick Drake, Fairport Convention and The Byrds with a rich, full-band radio-friendly sound, this is winsome songwriting in the most traditional sense, and what could be more folky than that?

Immigrant
Wounded Healer

Norman has stocked several releases by Graeme McNab aka Immigrant over the years, an unobtrusive songwriter with scant online presence. Wounded Healer is out through Oscarson on standard and deluxe vinyl editions as well as a handmade gatefold CD, all with various quantities of extra goodies, such as lyrics and photographs. Expect this music to be gentle, sincere and utterly unflamboyant.

I'm on My Journey Home: Sacred Harp Singing, 1927-1938

Sacred Harp Singing is a potent American choral song form that emphasises the social. I’m on My Journey Home compiles some vintage recordings (dating from between 1927 and 1938) onto cassette. The sound quality may not be hi-def, but the spiritual power of these performances shines on through. On Death Is Not The End.

Lean Year
Lean Year

Album the first from Lean Year, the pairing of Emilie Rex and Rick Alverson. The two bring substantial individual histories into the project, giving these minimal songs a very real sense of emotional weight and lived experience. Well suited to fans of Low. Oh, and one of the songs is named after Elem Klimov’s Come And See, which is one of the greatest (and most horribly intense) films you could ever see. On Western Vinyl.

Tori Amos
Native Invader

Native Invader is the thirteen-track release (+two bonus tracks) from Tori Amos. A fantastic record that brings so much with it in terms of quality sound and a great addition to the indie rock scene. The record is actually quite relaxing and soothing, as Amos sings into your ears like silky milk. Available on Vinyl LP, deluxe CD and CD and released on ‘Decca’.

Destroyer
ken

Occasional New Pornographer and Swan Lake alumnus Dan Bejar has been turning his solo project from typical indie rock fare into an inventive, '80s-studded project over the last few years, employing synth 'n' sax on the verbose Kaputt and getting serene on Poison Season. Now he returns with ken, a record named in tribute to the original title of ballad "The Wild Ones". Dad as ever, it's likely to be a lyrical tongue-twister full of snarling wit.

Scott Walker
Scott 2

Another classic from Walker's impeccable career, this time his second solo album. Featuring yet more luxuriuant arranngements upon which Scott's charismatic baritone relates alarmingly frank tales of despair and deception. A unique exploration of the dark underbelly of easy-listening schmalz!

Scott Walker
Scott

Out of the ashes of The Walker Brothers, came this, the debut album by one of the most singular and original talents to ever grace pop music. Featuring lush arrangemnts of songs by the likes of Jaques Brel and Tim Hardin, as well as three of Walker's own compositions, all touched by Scott's uniquely dark aura.

Pearls Before Swine
One Nation Underground

We've had Sergeant Peppers and Their Satanic Majesties Request 50th anniversary specials but now it's time for something much more out there. It's a big re-issue of this legendary psychedelic folk group who in 1967 produced this almost impossible to characterise blend of Donovan style folk whimsy, repetitive minimalism and organ driven punk.       
  • Vinyl LP (DC659)

Circuit Des Yeux
Reaching For Indigo

After dabbling with a different alias last year, Haley Fohr brings her Circuit Des Yeux project back with a bang with new record Reaching For Indigo, her first album for Drag City. Again Fohr’s amazing baritone voice leads the way, but make sure to listen closely to enjoy the sheer depth and detail of these compositions.

The Rural Alberta Advantage
The Wild

Canadian indie-rock trio The Rural Alberta Advantage knocked the songs for their new album into shape on the road, gigging at some of their best-loved venues in Europe and North America. Now, committed to tape in the studio and ready to be unleashed on the world, The Wild is a diary of life on the road, missing home and broken hearts.

Johnny Cash
I Walk The Line

Classic Cash from 1968! I Walk The Line actually features re-recorded versions of various songs that were already favourites by this point, such as the title track, originally recorded in 1958. Johnny was still in very fine form at this point, and I Walk The Line makes for a great early hits collection. Reissued on vinyl by Columbia.

Shintaro Sakamoto
Let's Dance Raw

Shintaro Sakamoto has sacked off his psych-rock pals in Yura Yura Teikoku to offer up something a little different on 'Let's Dance Raw', which offers up his psych guitar styling for a silky smooth funk project. Sakamoto's last solo record was the folksy 'How To Live With a Phantom', but the infectious grooves here are more dressed up, based around his slick chord sequences, well-placed keys and bumpy bass.

Gill Landry
Love Rides A Dark Horse

With his fourth album, Love Rides A Dark Horse, Ex-Old Crow Medicine Show guy Gill Landry treads a similar path that has been taken by greats such as Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits with a sparse, hushed approach to his sound. The songs are stories about people in dysfunctioning relationships, living in a supposed reality. Landry tackled this subject as he doesn’t know too many people who are happy with their lot in life. Heavyweight Blood Red vinyl and CD on Loose.

Mark Kozelek with Ben Boye and Jim White

What now? Leave us alone.  The latest in Mark Kozelek's endless parade of releases. This time he is alongside Ben Boye and The Dirty Three's Jim White. The credits contain the increasingly worrying credit of 'Mark Kozelek: Words'.  Therefore you sort of know what you are getting- vomit. The song I heard is all about a cat and I never ever want to hear it again.

Emiliana Torrini
Fisherman's Woman

A welcome reissue on vinyl of the tender yet powerful Fisherman's Woman by Emiliana Torrini. In 2005 this sumptuous collection of twelve heart-melting songs followed an optimistic, electronic trip-hop opus some six years before. Emiliana since found herself in contemplative mood with textures closer to Nick Drake or Jolie Holland. It's still astonishing to think she collaborated with Kylie Minogue. LP on Rough Trade.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Live Rust

Here is a re-issue of Neil Young's late '70s live album which was recorded on his 'Rust Never Sleeps' tour of 1978. It was recorded in various venues across the US and features his classic ragged band Crazy Horse backing him on songs from his recent album alongside earlier classics. 180g vinyl re-issue.

Josh Ritter
Gathering

The ninth album from Josh Ritter is one of those super-emotional, spit-and-sawdust country-rock albums that everyone needs a few of in their life. Produced with a nice full sound, Gathering turns in a baker’s dozen of well-crafted ditties. ‘Showboat’ is romping heartland rock, ‘Thunderbolt’s Goodnight’ a road lullaby, and Bob Weir from The Grateful Dead crops up on ‘When Will I Be Changed’.

Lee Hazlewood
The LHI Years: Singles, nudes And Backsides (1968-71)

Mustachioed cheese-dog Lee Hazlewood is best known for his collaborations, noteably with Nancy Sinatra. Here he is performing Nancyless, but there are still plenty of duets to croon along to. His eerie barritone voice and oddball production brings comparisons with Serge Gainsbourg, but he's all about the pop, albeit serious pop. And weird record sleeves. I mean look at it, you want it right?

The Parson Red Heads
Yearling + Murmurations

David Bowie
A New Career In A New Town (1977 – 1982)

Calling all very rich Bowie fans, you are in for a treat. This collection compiles all his albums between 1977 and 1982 which of course takes in his now classic 'Berlin Trilogy'. Not only that but 'Lodger' has been remixed by Tony Visconti and includes a bonus collection of single versions, non-album singles, b-sides and songs featured on soundtracks. Photos and stuff too. Imagine if all of these re-issues had happened and he hadn't died?

Candles

Whimsical lo-fi folk duo Candles release their self titled LP on the Weird Walk label, if psych tinged acid soaked folk music is your bag then get your paws all over this, think Syd Barrett solo mixed with modern dream-psych acts like Six Organs Of Admittance and Wooden Wand with just a sprinkle of 60's hippy mysticism.

The Weather Station

Self-titled and self-produced, The Weather Station is a collection of softly sung tracks that open your eyes to a fair few different genres. On her fourth record, Tamara Lindeman is able to bring together country with pop, and indie with rock and manages to do it well. This eleven-track record is available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Karl Blau
Out Her Space

Karl Blau is a busy musical man, and has been for many years, but it is only recently that his solo material has started getting wide distribution. Out Her Space is a new album of all-original material, recorded with a band of MegaFaun and Fleet Foxes members. Perfectly produced good-time country-soul, out on Bella Union.

Judy Dyble & Andy Lewis
Summer Dancing

Once she led the Fairport Convention with her folksy vocal fanfare; now she's releasing a record with Andy Lewis who is in fact a weirdo DJ, which I assure you doesn't stop them from making a psychedelic folk record with twee odes and harmonica ragers. Summer Dancing leans into the highest gear of folk rock and goes after the enigmatic sound made in more driving Fairport tunes, with an almost cartoony vibe carrying the duo through their ode to British psychedelia.

Tara Jane O’Neil
Tara Jane O’Neil

Tara Jane O'Neil was once in the magnificent Rodan but has long since been more noted for her wandering and prolific solo career. Here she teams up with a bunch of people for what she calls a 'singer-songwriter endeavour' half of which was recorded at Wilco's 'The Loft' studio. Another missive to add to a career that continues to follow an idiosyncratic path.

No No No

Here we have No No No, the first Beirut album since 2011’s The Rip Tide. Here, Zach Condon and friends take a more direct, in-the-studio approach to their sound, somewhat more stripped down in instrumentation than past Beirut work, but still keeping it international, of course. On 4AD, on special limited green vinyl if you’re lucky.

Leonard Cohen
You Want It Darker

Released prior to his recent and extremely sad death, this is novelist-gone-songwriter Leonard Cohen's 14th studio album. You Want It Darker is not a question, and that is made very clear with the minimal title track having a low ominous choir and an imposing Cohen sounding closer to Laibach’s Milan Fras’ broken baritone monologues than a lounge crooner.

Two Wolves

Marry Waterson is deeply immersed in England’s folk tradition, often performing with her family The Waterson Family (not to mention her cousin Eliza Carthy). For Two Wolves, she worked with fellow traveller David A. Jaycock, to produce a delicate set of songs that reflect on subjects including her family. On One Little Indian.

Mark Kozelek
Rock 'N' Roll Singer

He's indie rock's most formidable and canonical arsehole. Before he was quite as annoying and reminiscent of Grampa Simpson on one of his go-nowhere rants, he was slightly more redeemable and a better songwriter to boot. Rock 'n' Roll Singer was his debut record under his own name, following on from slowcore sadsaps Red House Painters and between the initially lovely Sun Kil Moon project. It has a handful of originals, plus several AC/DC covers, because this man is an idiot. There's also a rework of a John Denver cut. He sucks but he didn't used to.
