Military Genius
Deep Web

Deep Web is the debut album from industrial and experimental collective Military Genius. The audiovisual project use splinters of sax, piano and guitar to make a blissed out haze of noise that takes in clubby rhythms and oddball jazz that is intended to be a musical mirror to the chaos and turmoil the world finds itself in.  

Ed Askew
London

Strangely though this is an album by the legendary Ed Askew, the press release is dominated by mentions of Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells). Lord Neilson not only helped book a tour featuring Askew alongside Mike Heron (Incredible String Band) but managed to coax Askew into the studio to record this live to tape session which includes songs from across Askew's career. Trembling Bells help out (natch). 

Mabe Fratti
Pies Sobre la Tierra

Mabe Fratti is a Guatemalan cellist who resides in Mexico City. It was in Mexico City where she began hanging around the improvisation scene. This has led to her debut album, Pies Sobre La Tierra, which translates to Feet On The Ground. It is a mix of pop and experimental music which finds a suitable home alongside the likes of Peter Zummo and Military Genius on Unheard of Hope.

Marker Starling
High January

Canadian musician Chris A. Cummings - known as Marker Starling - releases his ninth album High January. A back-to-basics affair with no orchestral flourishes, it’s his first to be recorded in the UK, backed by his live-band that includes High Llamas frontman Sean O’Hagan and a guest appearance from Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier. 

Alex Rex
Andromeda

Alex Rex, real name Alex Neilson, was the drummer in Scottish folk rockers Trembling Bells, as well as drumming for the likes of Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Shirley Collins, Jandek and Current 93 among others. Andromeda is his third album. It follows Vermillion and Otterburn. Judging by the track ‘Pass the Mask’ this should please fans of Bonnie “Prince” Billy and promises to be a bloody good record. Folk legend Shirley Collins and Belle & Sebastian guitarist Stevie Jackson make guest appearances.

Trembling Bells & Alex Rex
I Am The King

Trembling Bells are a folky Scottish collective who feature drummer Alex Neilson who also appears here as Alex Rex. The Trembling Bells songs are inspired by Greek myths whilst the Alex Rex songs are both covers inspired by his late younger brother Alasdair - the traditional Night Visiting Song and John Cale's You Know More Than I Know. 

Baby Dee
Love's Small Song

Baby Dee’s third LP Love’s Small Song gets reissued courtesy of Tin Angel (Polar Bear, Pick A Piper). The 2002 record remains a uniquely moving piece of avant-garde songwriting. While the first part is made up of delicate baroque pop numbers that preclude the successes of Antony And The Johnsons, Love’s Small Song’s second disc is a 55-minute piece of birdsong recordings.

Trembling Bells
Dungeness

I just can't get over the sleeve. Just look at it. Kind of suits the music Trembling Bells make though. It's shot through with the folk influence of bands who also wore 17th century garb and claimed a kinship with days of yore. I'm thinking Fairport Convention. But Trembling Bells are also very psychedelic. You'd have to be to wear jerkins like that.   

Trembling Bells
The Sovereign Self

Their fifth album in six years, The Sovereign Self by Trembling Bells continues down the traditionalist path that the band ploughs so well. From motorik kraut to wig-out prog and freak-folk it’s a heady stew of influences, twisting and turning at every step. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Tin Angel.

Ed Askew
Art and Life

Ed Askew built up a small but solid cult following over the three and a half decades between his 1968 ESP-Disk debut and his 2003 return: he’s now in a place where people are eagerly awaiting new sounds from the man with the Martin Tiple (baritone ukulele). New record Art and Life, with an Askew painting on the cover, is out on Tin Angel

Batsch
Batch

The danceable sweetness of Batch is both teeth rotting and euphoric enough to spark a generous sugar rush. This Coventry quartet have produced a nippy nine-tracker destined to propel their unique brand of sarcastic pop further up the ladder of the murky indie underground - certainly if Billie Jean-esque lead single 'Awkward Patch' is anything to go by.

Trembling Bells / Alex Rex
The Auld Triangle

Like a sort of raggle-taggle version of Band Aid, Scottish folk minstrels Trembling Bells have hauled a pile of their famous friends into the studio to sing this song much beloved of drunks. Alasdair Roberts, Ricky Ross (really?) , Dan Haywood, Mike Heron, Scott Fagan and Amy Cutler all lend a hand on a tune which could rival 'Fairytale of New York' in the weep at Christmas stakes. 

Devon Sproule
The Gold String

It seems like Devon Sproule has been around forever but she's still somehow only 34. This latest missive from the Virginia based songwriter is inspired by the time she was staying on a remote and rather than eat her dinner set about writing sprawling verse. The result is a short but lush LP with guest spots from Ed Askew and Toronto dream poppers Bernice. 

Brasstronaut
Brasstronaut

Vancouver-incepted six-piece Brasstronaut are a mysterious entity, and one that cannot be assigned to a single genre. Their 2016 released self-titled album melds pop, rock and jazz using synths, clarinets and intricate rhythms in a way that has attracted critical acclaim from the left and the right of the Atlantic pond.

Mauno
Rough Master

Halifaxians Mauno take an unconventional approach to pop music, almost deconstructive. Pulling elements apart and focusing on them with fresh eyes. Resulting in strangely familiar but also completely alien experiments in pop structure and tones. Lot’s of “what the hell was that? Put that on again” going on here.

Trembling Bells & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
The Bonnie Bells Of Oxford

After collaborating on The Marble Downs Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Trembling Bells went on tour in 2012. The Bonnie Bells Of Oxford is a live album trying to capture the magic of their collaboration including hybrid versions of tracks from each artist, as well as many tracks from the album. Some of the finest contemporary folk musicians in action.

John Southworth
Small Town Water Tower

On Small Town Water Tower, John Southwater has made some subtly strange pop music, with songs that are wistful and quietly grand. This isn’t exactly his previous territory (Small Town Water Tower is his tenth album), but why not do something new eh? Especially when it is put together with such skill as this. Released by the Tin Angel label.

Nedelle Torrisi
Advice From Paradise

Indie pop musician Nedelle Torris has paid a lot of dues playing in the backing bands for artists such as Sufjan Stevens and Ariel Pink, but she deserves credit for being a proficient songwriter in her own right; Advice From Paradise attempts to bridge the gap between a type of pop music heard now and then, being both contemporary and traditional at the same time. 

Little Annie
Trace

Little Annie’s recent career has included a published volume of her prose and a collaborative album with Baby Dee, but this is the first time she has put out an album under her own name since 2007! Trace is a welcome return, putting the tradition of jazz music through the very particular style of Little Annie. Out on Tin Angel.

Von Spar
Streetlife

Von Spar are back after releasing a live adaptation of Can's 'Ege Bamyasi', here to unleash their own brand of new-era krautrock to the world with 'Streetlife' -- the weirdest of '70s rock, but with some disco too. This record is, as ever, a highly collaborative affair, bringing on board Marker Starling, Ada and Scout Niblett for a variety of vocal spots. 

Trembling Bells
Wide Majestic Aire

Wide Majestic Aire is a ‘mini-album’, containing 7 songs-worth of Trembling Bells’ grounded-but-adventurous folk-rock. A sense of place is crucial to this record: as well as Yorkshire, signified by the River Aire (which happens to be spitting-distance from Norman Records, fact-fans!), Oxford, London, and the general English countryside are all invoked. On Tin Angel.

Ed Askew
Ask The Unicorn

Cult favourite of weird deep-folk, Ask The Unicorn by Ed Askew has, for a very long time, been utterly out of print. This reissue rights that wrong at last, with Askew’s keening voice and unusual Martin tiple instrument fully remastered for maximum clarity. Reissued to CD and white vinyl by Tin Angel.

Baby Dee
I Am A Stick

Baby Dee finds serial percussionist Alex Neilson (Death Shanties, Trembling Bells) and a band also including Joe Carvell, Victor Herrero and Jordan Hunt working with Dee herself, to bring her piano-led songs to higher levels of intimate-but-grandiose odd-cabaret. I Am A Stick is out on Tin Angel Records.

Nicholas Krgovich
On Sunset

Nicholas Krgovich can't decide whether to bow at the Americana altar or give it up for synth pop, and so his song-writing prowess lies between the two, recalling traditional folk songwriters as much as he does artists such as Prefab Sprout and the Dirty Projectors. His new record, 'On Sunset', is a love letter to Los Angeles, and was produced by friend and helper of Canadian superheroes the New Pornographers. Expect something colourful and ornate.

Doug Tielli
Kerelsey

Doug Tielli lives in Toronto, where he is a well-known name on the underground music scene. Much of Kerelsey, though, was conceived in a rainy two months spent in the suburb of Coventry, England, with the same name. English folk influences are audible on the album, alongside African and Brazilian vibes. On CD or vinyl.

Ed Askew
For The World

Singer / songwriter and painter Ed Askew is considered something of a New York legend. He released his first album 'Ask the Unicorn' in 1968 and his most recent, 'For the World' in 2013. With only four albums in between, he might not be prolific but what he lacks in output he more than makes up for in admiration. Super fan Sharon Van Etten guests on vocals. On vinyl and CD.
