Tunng
Songs You Make At Night

Rather like The Great Conjunction in The Dark Crystal, Tunng’s shifting personnel have aligned once again, for the first time in many years, just as they were at the outset.. I remember them back in 2007 as shaggy-haired, semi-electronic Brit-folksters, but something’s definitely happened in the intervening ...view item »

Jacco Gardner
Somnium

Jacco Gardner has made a few albums of swirling psychedelia in recent years but here he tries something different with an all instrumental album inspired by the first science fiction novel (of the same name as the album), written in 1608 by Johannes Kepler. Gardner hopes the lack of a human voice allows the album to be a deep im...view item »


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...view item »


Ohtis
Runnin

Ohtis are a three-piece band who hail from Illinois and play country-tinged, dusty Americana. Their lyrics come from the Josh T. Pearson school of raconteurism whilst their music draws comparisons to Wilco’s contemplative material and Phosphorescent...view item »


Micah P. Hinson
When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You

Strong words from Texas native Micah P. Hinson, although his album seems to be on target if you're big into distorted singer-songwriter stuff with a retro early 2000s feel. When I Shoot at You With Arrows, I Will Shoot to Destroy You is the 4th album by the man who considers Obama to be 'the Murderer of the American Dre...view item »


The Saxophones
Songs of the Saxophones

The Saxophones started as the solo project of Alex Erenkov. He wanted to incorporate some basic percussion into his sound so recruited his wife, Alison Alderdice, which also meant he could take her on tour with him. As you can probably tell from the cover of Songs Of The Saxaphones, he’s quite fond of her. Their influences...view item »

Michael Nau
Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread

The Mighty Thread is not a really bad conversation on a message board that deviates into people agreeing to disagree, but rather the bonus name for Michael Nau, who made a bright, folksy record in Some Twist. He's back with this knottily poetic follow-up that embraces ambiguity and uncert...view item »


Katie Von Schleicher
Glad To Be Here

Katie Von Schleicher returns with the first material since her 2017 LP Shitty Hits. ‘Glad To Be Here’ and ‘Party Dawn’ were recorded in the artist’s home of Maryland while on a break from touring, and the pair serve as Von Schleicher taking stock of how things are going. The pair are both b...view item »

The Saxophones
Aloha / Just You

The Saxophones, an Oakland trio containing just the one saxophonist, are ready to start the new year on an exceedingly gentle note. ‘Aloha’ on the A-side is a barely-there dream-indie plod that resembles a sort of sugary, summer-pop version of Zelienople...view item »


The Saxophones
Aloha / Just You

Just like the drummer from ZZ Top being called Frank Beard and not actually having a beard, the Saxophones aren't made up entirely of saxophones. There is saxophone on it though I have to warn you but it's just a small part of hubby and wife team Alexi Erenkov and Alison Alderdice's take on low voiced slowcore. They co...view item »

Micah P. Hinson
Presents The Holy Strangers

Micah P Hinson returns with a new album which he describes as a folk opera going from birth to love to death. He recorded it in Texas using ancient recording methods for that authentic feel. Despite that Quietus interview he still has plenty of fans out there who will lap these sparse and haunting songs ...view item »


Katie Von Schleicher
Shitty Hits

The debut album from the complicatedly named Katie Von Schleicher is an album of sweet pop that has nods towards the 70s soft pop of the likes of Emitt Rhodes. The grandiose arrangements suggest she could fit in as tour support the Lemon Twigs pretty nicely. Kind of emotiona...view item »

Samantha Crain
You Had Me At Goodbye

Oklahoma sweetheart Samantha Crain treating us to her fifth album already. It’s like somebody made thoughtful upbeat indiepop-folk and that somebody was Samantha, because that's what she did. The album has a slight Western-sound to it, perhaps due to Mountain Goats-producer John Vanderslice’ pro...view item »


The Saxophones
If You're On The Water

You would think that these would be Robin's favourite band but alas there is no saxophone in sight. In stead we get the sort of slowcore that the likes of Timber Timbre do so well all inspired by a terrible boating accident. These are the first recordings from this husband and wife team who do a nice job of bringing more sad to ...view item »

Aidan Knight
Small Reveal

Small Reveal is the brainchild of Aidan Knight, and is as sparse and songwriterly as you would expect from the Canadian-born indie-rocker.

Throws

Throws is the new sound of the musicians formerly known as Tunng, nigh on a decade since that project’s last album. The folkishness has mostly faded, and electronics are very much at the fore: this is almost synth-pop at times!

Prospect Of Skelmersdale

The Magnetic North are a group firmly dedicated to a sense of place: here they follow up their last record, Orkney Symphony, with Prospect Of Skelmersdale, a set of songs grounded in the titular town. More than a touch of hauntology is present in these yearning folkish numbers. On Full Time Hobby, with the CD v...view item »


Aidan Knight
Each Other

Aidan Knight and his band of squires (I’m so sorry) have imbued the songs on Each Other with a delicate melancholy, carried through by thoughtful lyrics, bold and spacious production, and lots of interesting textures.

The Leisure Society
This Phantom Life

The Leisure Society's debut album 'The Sleeper' is one of those classic records everyone should own, a masterclass in songwriting, recalling at times Nick Drake and Love shot through with a fun folk pop sensibility. It's rather worrying then for their new single to be like a less memorable version of one of the more upbeat numbers of the debut t...view item »

Timber Timbre
Creep On Creepin' On

T.T a.k.a Kirk Taylor returns with a second collection of cosy mis-shapen pop recordings on Full Time Hobby. Anyone familiar with T.T will be aware of Taylor's rather strange take on a classic crooner vocal style. It's part Roy Orbison, part Richard Hawley fighting the power of a couple of strong valiums he consumed earlier in the day. 'Creep On...view item »

Timber Timbre
Demon Host

I'm not familiar with this dude but I sat and listened to his album this morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. His real name is Taylor Kirk (remember it's important to have a stage name to protect your identity) and he makes music of a singer songwriter flavour. That particular flavour is a very bare bones ernest sounding one with it mainly being h...view item »

Erland & The Carnival
Nightingale

I know these have been kicking about for ages but I think this is the first time I've actually heard them. They're better than I thought they'd be! Way better actually. I mean, apparently the first album was Paul Weller's album of the year.. Not exactly the kind of accolade which generally gets me sprinting to the turntable but now I can see tha...view item »

Erland & The Carnival
Map Of An Englishman

Now these guys did a blooming great album last time. They know how to load a song with great vibes, easy melodies & a timeless (ie: 60s psych) appeal. This new single introduces one of those kind of belching, farting electronic mid-range sounds which makes me think they're trying to be less retro sounding. I don't think the subtle electronic...view item »

Fujiya & Miyagi
Ventriloquizzing

I am a huge fan of Fujiya & Miyagi's breakout compilation, Transparent Things, and though Lightbulbs managed to push the band in a slightly new direction, it lacked the tight songwriting and general groove of its predecessor. Stylistically, this album is less varied than Lightbulbs, lacking that record's softer side, but the new songs simply...view item »

Fujiya & Miyagi
Yoyo

Apparently these guys have their 4th album out soon. I had no idea! I thought they'd only done Lightbulbs. Hey what do I know? Yoyo is the lead track from their forthcoming album Ventriloquizzing and the flipside of this 7" features an Erland & The Carnival remixing the lead track off the album (or carnivalising it...). I think that sentence...view item »

Tunng
Sashimi

I totally bummed the last Tunng album. I thought it was heartbreaking, uplifting, mischievous and emotive all at the same time.... A bit like any England football teams performance at any World Cup since '66 . This paticular cut from the aforementioned album is ace! I remember it well. I was just a rosy-cheeked kid then, with a head full of drea...view item »

School Of Seven Bells
Heart Is Strange

I'm sure you must know the score with these by now.. Pure throwback shoegazey pop with token electronic bells on. 'Heart Is Strange' is probably the clubbiest thing I've heard them do, though I think Pitchfork are going a tad over the top (quelle surprise) in declaring it a 'banger'. On t'other side you gets your White Sea remix of 'Dust Devil' ...view item »

School Of Seven Bells
Disconnect From Desire

What is going on with all this watered down shoegaze we get these days? These guys have been absorbing late period Lush & Cocteaus I reckon. From the ethereal vocal harmonies to dated dance beats, these luscious ladies & their male cohort sound like a Goa backpacker's dream. I cannot bring myself to dislike it too much as they sound like...view item »

School Of Seven Bells
Windstorm

I fucking love this song. It's like swimming in the most wonderous of oceans. They have a shoegazing rating of at least 6.5 on MetaCritic..probably. Its breathy vocals and sweet production really brings a tear to your eye. Its amazingly cathartic and enchanting in equal measure. I can't say enough good things about this single. What I will say t...view item »

Tunng
...And Then We Saw Land

The new Tunng album is a real winner. Not only does it have some amazingly heartfelt songs on it, but also it can provide seconds of double entendre related entertainment. Y'know, "Can I stick this Tunng somewhere..." or "Can I stick this Tunng in your box..?" etc. This album is rich with ideas and emotion. Some of the songs hav...view item »

Micah P. Hinson
Take Off That Dress For Me

.....I don't think I will take my dress off.. Not unless you turn the lights off.... I'm carrying a little "holiday weight"... This latest lament from Micah P. Hinson sounds pretty good though, if a bit miserabilist and lovelorn but when you have a voice as deep as an country singer-filled ocean it might sound a bit strange if you were singing a...view item »

Micah P. Hinson
And The Pioneer Saboteurs

Quick, dust off them spurs, pardoner, don your stetson and marry your sister, The new album from Micah P Henson is here. Its a sprawling opus of wonder and grandiosity, a bit like the Old West itself or a night out with Keith Chegwin,if you will. This record sounds really great. All the songs are spacious and very much rooted in the mysticism of...view item »

Tunng
Woodcat

Those electroni-folksters Tunng are back on a new label (which be Full Time Hobby) and a brand new limited 7" called Woodcat which is my single of the week so far. A lot of you included the Tunng album in your top 10's of the last 10 years so we know they mean a lot to a lot of you. I was wondering what would happen to...view item »

Erland & The Carnival
Trouble In Mind

Brian is well into the forthcoming Erland & The Carnival album. So much so he said he's reviewing the album and he dumped the single in my pile thinking I'd be able to do it some sort of justice. In case you don't know who they are they're Simon Tong (from The Verve, The Good The Bad The Queen) and Nick Nock (drummer who's worked with Macca on ...view item »

Hustle

Tunng are back!! Armed with a new 7" weapon ready to blow your tits off. 'Hustle' is it's name and it's the happiest thing I've heard them do. Good Arrows saw them in cheerier mode and Hustle sees them in super nice happy pretty mode which is full if brightness and lovelyness. Yes it really is that happy. I think it's the jaunty beat which bou...view item »

School Of Seven Bells
Alpinisms

So sad to note the tragic passing of founding School of Seven Bells man Benjamin Curtis. What a terrible shame. Anyway here is a re-issue of the debut School of Seven Bells album in which he collaborated with identical sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza on a form of electronic dream pop that was slightly ahead of the curve in that lo...view item »

Micah P. Hinson
And The Red Empire Orchestra

'And The Red Empire Orchestra' is the fourth record from the horror-flick country savant Micah P Hinson, who spends his time detailing gruesomely personal stories with titles like "Dyin' Alone" -- sparing none of the Texan slur that makes them feel all the more lonesome. The record continued to prove Hinson to be the possessor of one of the best...view item »
