Nilüfer Yanya
Miss Universe

Bold and bright modern pop from Nilufer Yanya, bursting out of your stereo in the form of debut full-length album Miss Universe. The confidence of that title is all over the album’s sound, which combines soul and electronica details with gnarly guitar, helmed by Yanya’s big vocals. It's good folks. On ATO Records.

Joseph
Good Luck, Kid

US trio Joseph return with their new album, Good Luck, Kid. They have left behind the folk sound of their first album to make a collection meatier pop/rock songs. The album is supposed to play out like a road movie. The themes are positive, about finding yourself and fighting for what’s important. It was produced by Christian “Leggy” Langdon known for his work with Meg Myers and Charlotte OC.

Jim James
Uniform Clarity

Only a few short months ago My Morning Jacket singer/guitarist Jim James dropped a record of fuzzy Americana entitled Uniform Distortion. Now he’s come through with an LP called Uniform Clarity. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the baker's dozen of tracks here are acoustic versions of those which made up the earlier album. They’re very nice songs and all.

Natalie Prass
The Future and the Past

Natalie Prass was so appalled at the Trump election result that she re-wrote her album to reflect her swirling emotions. She then chose to wear a bow-tie on the album sleeve but the less said about that the better. 'The Future and the Past' taps into 80s pop, 90's r&b with some emotional ballads thrown in amongst a myriad of technicolour grooves.

Black Pumas
Black Pumas

Black Pumas are a funk/soul/hip-hop duo comprising of Adrian Quesada of Brownout and Grupo Fantasma and the previously unheard of but undoubtedly talented Eric Burton. The band made an indelible impression on many that saw them at 2019’s SXSW festival. Their self-titled debut is available on LP and CD on ATO Records.

Temples
Hot Motion

Incredibly 60s looking band in continue to make 60s influenced music shocker. Temples have been around for a good few years and with Hot Motion look set to make the so called 'big time'. The band they bring to mind is Kasabian but like, not in a bad way. Sunshine streams between the chords. On ATO Records.

Dylan LeBlanc
Renegade

Just imagine what a collaboration between Bob Dylan and Matt LeBlanc would sound like? Anyway, this is not that, this is Renegade, the fourth and latest album by Dylan LeBlanc. LeBlanc is a singer/songwriter with the spirit of Muscle Shoals coursing through his veins, although the album has an ‘80s pop/rock edge, similar to the recent work of another American singer songwriter we no longer talk about. On ATO.

The Claypool Lennon Delirium
South Of Reality

The psychedelics-fuelled California duo of Sean Lennon and Primus bassist Les Claypool is back after 2016’s Monolith of Phobos with newun South of Reality. Check out that magnificent 1970s sci-fi novel-esque cover art. Self-recorded and self-produced, the songs are sumptuous, lyrical and proggy compositions that go beyond the usual psych reliance on big stoner haze.

Emily King
Scenery

I’m pretty sure there was a girl called Emily King at my school. Can’t remember for certain - and anyway, if there was, I’m pretty sure it’s not the one who’s about to release her third LP Scenery. For one, I feel like I would have heard if our Em had been nominated for a Grammy. Like Ibeyi, Christine And The Queens and The 1975, the tracks here are the sort of thing mainstream music journos describe as ‘gutsy’.

Oh Pep!
I Wasn't Only Thinking About You…

ATO Records (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For The Riff Raff) drop the sophomore LP from Australian twosome Oh Pep!. I Wasn’t Only Thinking About You is a record full of nice, well-crafted ditties, a few of which also come equipped with festival-friendly choruses. Think Camera Obscura with a bit more of a straight-up folk-rock vibe.

Adam's House Cat
Town Burned Down

Any of you cats like Drive-By Truckers? Then this one’s for you. Before forming DBT Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley were in Adam’s House Cat. Formed in 1985, they recorded one album in 1990 that never made it to the pressing plant. Nearly thirty years on and that LP is now seeing the light of day. Town Burned Down isn’t as refined a Southern rock record as the stuff Cooley and Hood would go on to create down the line, but there are still some fine tunes on here that make it worth a listen.

Cordovas
That Santa Fe Channel

Hailing from Nashville, The Cordovas harmony-laden Americana sound melds the ‘70s folk-rock of California’s Laurel Canyon with the southern rock from the same era. If you like American Beauty-era Grateful Dead, Little Feat circa Dixie Chicken, or more recently, Dawes, then their second long-player, The Santa Fe Channel is for you. LP and CD on ATO Records.

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, thoughtful modern rock. On ATO Records.

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 things in life. Clear vinyl LP and CD on ATO Records.

Okkervil River
In The Rainbow Rain

If you found yourself somewhat depressed by Okkervil River’s introspective album, ‘Always’, then ‘In the Rainbow Rain’ is the welcome catharsis. Produced by bandleader Will Sheff, and mixed by Shawn Everett (Perfume Genius, The War on Drugs), the new LP is a hopeful and colourful oasis constructed by electrifying guitars, vast synths and glorious backing vocals. 

Nick Hakim / Onyx Collective
Vincent Tyler / The Pawn Broker / Rat Race

Nick Hakim - one of those Mac Demarco/Tyler, The Creator/Steve Lacy types - unites with up-and-coming NYC post-jazzers Onyx Collective for a short, sharp EP. Only the gritty neo-soul slap of ‘Vincent Tyler’ is anything close to what you might have expected going into this record. ‘The Pawn Broker’ and ‘Rat Race’ are hard and heavy - the latter is grungy and the former legitimately sounds like Thou. This EP is a very pleasant surprise.

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.

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 George Harrison covers.

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 against coruscating guitar lines. Raw and compelling, fans old and new are sure to connect. Choose from LP or CD, on ATO records.

Primus
The Desaturating Seven

Funky bass-led alternative rockers Primus return with their ninth studio full length The Desaturating Seven, which sees Tim Alexander back as the drummer, making this their first album together since 1995. Based around a children’s book about goblins it plays out almost like an all funked up version of avant-garde metallers Ved Buens Ende or Virus.

Slow Dancer
In A Mood

He might be in a bit of a mood but it's the kind of relaxed yacht rock ish mood that you'll enjoy if you like Mac DeMarco, Lindsay Buckingham, Conan Mockasin and even Flight of the Conchords. His voice is a bit weird but this has the sultry laid back feel of driving down the coast in some kind of nostalgic daydream. That voice is really weird though. 

Nick Hakim
Green Twins

Nick Hakim’s debut album Green Twins, following up on a pair of very well-received EPs, is the result of a stack of musical experience and a battalion of inventive production techniques. Consequently, each track on Green Twins is positively brimming over with pleasing little sonic details, making the soulful and funky songs that much sweeter. Out on ATO Records.

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 creates wide empty spaces through a plethora of different arrangements.

Old 97's
Graveyard Whistling

Rhett Davies's popular Texan bar band have long since broken out of their local scene and now compete with the alt country big boys such as  Uncle Tupelo and the Jayhawks. This is their umpteenth album of feel decent country rock with a low down and dirty feel and hi-paced driving gritty rhythms. 

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 label.

Okkervil River
Away

After leaving us in the dark since 2013’s The Silver Gymnasium, mystery surrounded Texas folk rockers Okkervil River. Apart from some digital singles in 2014, we didn’t know what was going on, but now frontman Will Sheff is clearing things up. Away is somewhere between a true Okkervil River album and a solo effort, but it’s definitely the continuation of something old and the start of something new. And high time at that!

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 percussion.

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 a political record that tries to emphasise what's good, over songs that do slightly new things for the Drive-By Truckers. On ATO Records.

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 ‘Ellen’ and ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ shared stages with the Shins, Andrew Bird and Calexico which gives you some idea of where they are coming from. 

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 unreleased, from the album sessions. 2 CDs or 4 LPs, on ATO Records.

Drive-By Truckers
This Weekend's The Night

Drive-By Truckers fans of the world rejoice, the band are releasing recordings of their three-night residency at San Fransisco’s Filmore venue. For the shows they reached deep into their Southern rocking back catalogue to present the full span of their music. This Weekend’s The Night takes 13 of the best tracks from the shows.

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 - the vinyl pressing comes with a CD as well!

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.

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 Records.

Rayland Baxter
Imaginary Man

Featuring contributions from Bucky Baxter on pedal steel and Jessie Baylin, Isaaca Byrd (MYZICA), Mikky Ekko, Jordan Lehning (Caitlin Rose, Steelism) and Matt Vazquez (Delta Sprit) on backing vocals, ‘Imaginary Man’ is an eleven track journey through the multicoloured imagination of Tennessee based alternative country musician Rayland Baxter.

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, including Alabama Shakes and Benjamin Booker.

My Morning Jacket
The Waterfall

Recorded in Stinson Beach CA, ‘The Waterfall’ is Louisville Kentucky based rock quintet My Morning Jacket’s seventh full length album, due for release on ATO Records/Capitol Records. Following in the footsteps of their highly acclaimed Grammy nominated 2011 release ‘Circuital’, ‘The Waterfall’ is a focused, psychedelic homage to the beauty of nature.

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-meets-Rush-ified take on said soundtrack and now here's a recorded version. “The tour and the album are solely a marketing tool just so we can sell candy bars,” says Claypool, who has just launched a new range of "Primus Bars".

Mariachi El Bronx
III

Otherwise known as Californian hardcore punk band The Bronx, the band’s alter ego Mariachi El Bronx return with their third album of Mariachi inspired music. Released via ATO Records ‘III’ is a different direction for the band as they come into their own: with a different approach to writing, the band defy tradition here with the help of old sequencers, synths and an ARP. Available in all formats, including day-glo orange vinyl. 

Various
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 ‘Prince’ Billy, and The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn.
