Buck Meek
Two Saviors

Buck Meek started out playing blues, jazz and swing in bars across his native Texas and released a couple of EPs. Then he met Adrianne Lenker and formed Big Thief, and the rest is history. The songs on 'Two Saviors' tell tales of various relationships, tragedy, vulnerability and love all delivered with wisdom and an appropriate amount of humour. Features Mat Davidson AKA Twain playing bass, pedal steel, fiddle and vocals.

Twain
Adventure

Having been digitally released by surprise back in November 2019, Mat Davidson has remastered his latest Twain album 'Adventure' for release on vinyl. Complementing his lush, sparse guitar playing with drumming from Peter Pezzimenti and bass-playing from Ken Woodward, 'Adventure' is a natural outgrowth of Davidson's time playing in the backing bands for Courtney Marie Andrews, Buck Meek and The Low Anthem.

Tenci
My Heart Is An Open Field

Chicago-based singer-songwriter Jess Shoman has remarkably developed her bedroom project Tenci to the point of performing as a full band and releasing its debut solo album in little over a year. Arriving via Keeled Scales, My Heart Is An Open Field is a collection of skeletal, sparse and disarming folk. 

David Dondero
The Transient

A long overdue re-issue on heavyweight vinyl for David Dondero’s cult classic 2003 album The Transient. Taking its cues from classic Americana going back to Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger and updating it for the new millennium, it comes on a special ‘ashes-on-the-highway’ coloured vinyl too.

The Deer
Do No Harm

The Deer hail from Austin, Texas. For years they have ploughed the folk / Americana furrow. For their new album, Do No Harm, they’ve reached for a bigger sound and bigger hooks whilst retaining their big heart. It would seem they’ve moved into the space opened up by the emergence of Big Thief, which is no bad thing. Fleetwood Mac fans might want to take a look here too. 

Erin Durant
Islands

Erin Durant is an artist who knows the difference between power and volume. The Brooklyn-based pianist has her roots in New Orleans. Her piano led ballads have a certain swagger, imbued with the spirit of her home town. Her style also recalls For The Roses-era Joni Mitchell, Joanna Newsom and Regina Spektor. Islands was produced by Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio and features a guest performance from Kath Bloom.

Jordan Moser
Long Night

Jordan Moser is a new kid on the block, but you wouldn’t guess it from his assured country-folk debut, Long Night. Musically it recalls Guy Clark and John Prine, lyrically, there is a wit and irreverence that suggests he’s been at this for longer. Fellow Texas resident, Molly Burch guests. RIYL Bon Iver, Cass McCombs, Iron & Wine, Towns Van Zandt.

Buck Meek
Buck Meek

Big Thief’s co-founder and lead guitarist Buck Meek quietly released a solo album in the early summer of 2018. Now, the self-titled effort receives a re-issue as a result of the Brooklyn quartet’s success this year, and shares the same kind of emotional tension and openness to Big Thief’s music. 

Will Johnson
Wire Mountain

Will Johnson was once known as Centro-Matic but is now on his sixth album under his own name. He's kind of like a Southern fried Robert Pollard both in delivery and reliability but Johnson is happy to move out of his comfort zone, Wire Mountain adds in a wealth of new textures to his lo-fi rocking sound and features a guest appearance from Thor Harris (Swans and Thor & Friends).

Jo Schornikow
Secret Weapon

Jo Schornikow, who's found success as the keyboard player in Phosphorescent, is back on her own with Secret Weapon. She plays a vivid and intimate country music that is rich beyond measure. The title refers to her years helping support other people's visions, but finally she has stepped out on her own. On Keeled Scales.
