Natalie Prass
The Future and the Past

Hot off the prasses! It’s the first ever prassing of Natalie Prass’s new album! Prass the ‘Add to Cart’ button immediately. Don’t delay; as soon as you do it you’ll be whisked away from this terrible page of terrible puns about Natalie Prass’ name. You can now add Prass to the club of musicians w...view item »

Rayland Baxter
Wide Awake

Rayland Baxter, a man with a first name I can scarcely believe in, seems to be pulling a Bon Iver on this album, which grew out of a period of seclusion spent in an old rubber band factory. Fifty songs written, of which ten made it onto this here finished album, produced by Butch Walker. Soulful...view item »

Okkervil River
In The Rainbow Rain

At least he’s having a nice time. Having come off of being my favourite band of all time with three late-career records that stood as Will Sheff’s best work, Okkervil River have now released a gleeful dud. Am I bothered? I’m bothered by the War on Drugs production, the formless lyrical con...view item »

Jim James
Uniform Distortion

My Morning Jacket’s angel-voiced frontman Jim James is getting angry about the way our news is delivered. His third solo album, Blanket Distortion explores ways in which we can escape the fuzziness that’s dividing the world and get back to appreciating the simpler thin...view item »

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 be...view item »

Jim James
Tribute To 2

Jim James the artist whose name is one letter away from being a pet name for pyjamas (and My Morning Jacket guy) releases 'Tribute to 2'  - an album of hope where he covers some of his favourite songs just for fun or to make himself feel better. Not to be confused with 'Tribute To' ...his previous album of ...view item »

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...view item »

Primus
The Desaturating Seven

Funky bass-led alternative rockers Primus return with their ninth studio full length The Desaturating Seven, which sees Tim Alexander ...view item »

Slow Dancer
In A Mood

Why would you call a band Slow Dancer? What is it in either of those two words that would make you want to listen to it? First up  - 'slow'  - that would bring to mind something not that interesting. What good thing has ever been Slow...Eric 'slowhand' Clapton? Everything slow is...view item »

Nick Hakim
Green Twins

Right, I've only got a few songs to go on but this is sounding gorgeous. Opener 'Green Twins' sounds like what I'd hoped the Thundercat album might sound more like. Aching, hazy jazz influenced songwriting that is one part Shuggie Otis and one part ...view item »

Nick Hakim
Where Will We Go Pt. I & II

Mixing his competence on piano with a variety of musical disciplines that make him sound slick, professional and tremendously emotional -- like James Blake in another, slightly different life -- Nick Hakim presents his new record, 'Where Will We Go Pt 1 & 2'. The instrumental flourishes are largely the work of Hakim himself, who cr...view item »

Old 97's
Graveyard Whistling

I love a bit of roots rock. Partially as it reminds me of digging through the straighter sections of my dads record collection in the '80s (remember the Del Fuegos? Thought not) but also because the tuneful earnestness of the better bits of this genre often amuse me. Always tales of smal...view item »

Chicano Batman
Freedom is Free

Chicano Batman draw on the multicultural liveliness of their hometown of Los Angeles to produce a soulful brew of classic R&B with Brazilian tropicalía and funky pop. Their third album, Freedom Is Free, is an especially positive and energetic set from these guys, and it’s released by the ATO Records lab...view item »

Okkervil River
Away

It’s curious to me that Okkervil River have released two of indie rock’s best records of the last ten years and no one cares. I Am Very Far was a surrealist rock symphony in which Will Sheff threw filing cabinets across the studio in an attempt to make sense of his own knotted lyrical improvisations; its follow-up, ...view item »

Jonny Fritz
Sweet Creep

With Sweet Creep Jonny Fritz takes a bit of a step away from the country formula. Keeping the poignant and heart-warming storytelling but replacing the barnyard/hay-bale/Conway Twitty setting with a more isolated experimental feel, backed up with subtle electronic swirls and hypnotic, rhythm box percuss...view item »

Drive-By Truckers
American Band

Drive-By Truckers celebrate their twentieth anniversary with their eleventh album, very directly titled American Band. It is of course a strange and heavy time to be American, and that’s how the Truckers feel about it. This is ...view item »

Blind Pilot
And Then Like Lions

It's a sad fact that many of the best album come after periods of loss. Blind Pilot’s Israel Nebeker has cultivated this album after the death of his father and the end of a relationship. Therefore it's going to be a sad affair though at times uplifting as Nebeker looks to the future. Blind Pilot have performed on &ls...view item »

The Claypool Lennon Delirium
Monolith of Phobos

This is where Sean Lennon and Les Claypool collide together, resulting in the fantastically unwieldy band moniker The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Their album Monolith of Phobos is a real psychedelic suite, with a cheerfully proggish approach to studio manipulations and instrumental profli...view item »

My Morning Jacket
It Still Moves (Deluxe Edition)

My Morning Jacket’s southern indie rock classic It Still Moves was first released in 2003, and is here reissued in truly deluxe style. The original record (some say the band’s finest) has been remastered, and is accompanied by 10 of Jim James’ demoes and another 3 tracks, previously un...view item »

Two Gallants
We Are Undone

Sometimes these artists pick the weirdest titles. We Are Undone seems curious, as Two Gallants in fact just finished this album, their second on ATO records. Then again, the title is a critique of our consumerism-driven society. And of course, we agree. But we’d like to recommend you to buy this record anyway...view item »

Sun Club
The Dongo Durango

Sun Club have allowed over a decade to pass before recording their debut album: consequently, they have honed their sound to perfection. The Dongo Durango is full of pop songs that are kept fresh with unexpected rhythms, rare time signatures, and some wildly energised vocals. Released by ATO Records....view item »

Lucero
All a Man Should Do

All A Man Should Do finds Lucero in a gnarly Americana mood. Lyricist and leader Ben Nichols has a snarly tone and a writer’s eye for the interesting parts of human relationships. The music behind him features bold brass, which pulls the regular band line-up onto a higher plane. Released by ATO Re...view item »

Fly Golden Eagle
Quartz Bijou

Fly Golden Eagle are a band who like to rock: psych rock. Quartz Bijou is their latest record, and it takes inspiration from Jodorowsky’s film The Holy Mountain, which can only be a good thing. The group have recently played as backing band to a number of releases recorded in their native Nashville, inclu...view item »

My Morning Jacket
The Waterfall

The last we heard from Jim James, he was contentedly butchering the Songs: Ohia classic “Farewell Transmission” for a Jason Molina tribute, extracting the Americana and lacing it with strands of My Morning Jacket’s electronic DNA. Curse that infernal racket of a cover, but it serves to sum up...view item »

Primus
Primus & the Chocolate Factory With the Fungi Ensemble

Wacky high energy Californian rockers Primus have been going for 30 years now, their unique brand of bass-heavy prog-funk silliness doesn't really need any introduction. Nor does the soundtrack to the musical film version of Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. On New Year's Eve 2013 the band performed their Zappa-meets-Beefheart-me...view item »

Mariachi El Bronx
III

Imagine if a random LA hardcore act, let’s say the Bronx, decided they were done with all that See You In The Pit shit, but couldn’t really hack ska, and so -- with no where to turn in this sad, lonely world of lost punx -- decided to make mariachi instead. Okay. But that’s literally what ‘III&r...view item »


A Tribute To Bob Dylan In The 80s: Volume One

I think it is fair to say that the 1980s is perhaps not Bob Dylan’s most favoured period… So it is all the more refreshing to see ATO Records chose to bring focus to this area of the big man’s work by marshalling together contemporary bands including Built To Spill, Bonnie ‘Princ...view item »

Les Claypool's Duo De Twang
Four Foot Shack

Plank-slapping goofball Les Claypool's oddball funk-rockers Primus are one of the ultimate "Marmite" bands, like the Red Hot Chili Peppers multiplied by Ween - few people will deny there's talent on display, but their refusal to take themsel...view item »

The Whigs
Mission Control

Mission Control starts off with a blazing "Like a Vibration", a short take-no-prisoners track that immediately grabs your attention. The sound of the band unmistakably reminds you of the Replacements. The first half of the album is superb, with gems like "Production City" and the best track of the album "Ri...view item »
