Anna St. Louis
If Only There Was A River

Anna St. Louis’s voice is not powerful. Nor is it impressive. It’s not even particularly reliable - the eleven tracks of If Only There Was A River find her frequently sliding between notes to find pitch. However, all of this stuff just adds fuel to the fire of David Byrne’s old adage t...view item »

Night Shop
In The Break

You’ll know Justin Sullivan better as a drummer - he’s best known for being a tub-thumper for Kevin Morby’s various endeavours - but sometimes he likes to put himself centre-stage. ...view item »

Bonny Doon
Longwave

Bonny Doon already have one pretty damn pleasant self titled album under their belts but have since decamped to the evocatively named Mystic Lake in Michigan to record this swift follow up. Inspired by their surroundings the band have created a twilit world of understated strum pop in the vein of those breezy relaxed songs on the Velvet ...view item »

Kevin Morby
Still Life

The sweet-voiced Kevin Morby, known for his more modest roles as bassist in Woods and one part of Cassie Ramone's band the Babies, is set to release his second solo record, 'Still Life'. It follows up the eclectic folk record 'Harlem River', which ranged from plaintive acoustic ballads to smoky barroom guitar riffing. From hearing "Parade", one ...view item »

Shannon Lay

Shannon Lay presents her second album of the year 2017, the beautifully-titled Living Water. Lay’s dexterous guitar playing guides her songs in and o...view item »

Real Estate
Real Estate

It's another big week for Woodsist releases this week with a ton of stuff coming out including Real Estate's debut S/T album. These New Jersey indie pop upstarts have impressed with single 'Fake Blues' and the album is proving itself to be a winner too. Ten tracks of blissed out, beer soaked, bong smelly interpretations of modern country and folk p...view item »

Woods
Love Is Love

Written and recorded in the two months following the US election, Love Is Love is a collection of songs that try to bring together and fix the America that Woods think is becoming fractured and broken with hatred. Gentle beats and soft vocals are in abundance on this record that is available on Vinyl LP, CD and Cassette...view item »

Woods
Bend Beyond

Wasn't sure about this latest album from this influential NY bunch on first listen but after around six or seven plays it is knocking the stuffing out of my mind with its laconic psychedelic beauty and freewheeling charm. It's possibly their finest work since 2010's 'At Echo Lake' to these ears ...view item »

The Babies

Hand Habits
Wildly Idle (Humble Before The Void)

Her friends know her as Meg Duffy, you’ll know her as Hand Habits and you may have seen her on tour with Kevin Morby over the past couple of years. There’s a faintly Twin Peaks-ish atmosphere to the grainy, woozy synth-and-guitar set up, and Duffy’s lilting vocals complement the textur...view item »

John Andrews & The Yawns
Bad Posture

Bad Posture was written at home over the course of the winter in John Andrews’ New Hampshire home, and then recorded in the springtime in the barn of that same home along with his band of freakfolk fellows The Yawns. Bad Posture is intimate rural music for the new American era. LP release...view item »

MV & EE
Root / Void

MV (Matt Valentine) and EE (Erika Elder) have been partners in life and music for a good long while now: they know themselves, each other, and their sound inside out. Root / Void strays away from the heavier psych-jams they’ve often produced, instead rocking a mor...view item »

Woods
City Sun Eater In The River of Light

City Sun Eater In The River of Light is the ninth LP by Woods, the American alt-folk-rock troupe with a psychedelic, even jazzy approach to their sound. As only their second recording made in a ‘proper’ studio, the sound is crisp and clear, but not lacking in the oddness either. The album is available on wha...view item »

Rafi Bookstaber
Late Summer

Late Summer sounds like a meet-in-the-middle between old, mellow guitar troubadour-isms and out-there underground rural psych in the vein of MV & EE. Rafi Bookstaber plays analogue-treated guitar in a way that makes it feel almos...view item »

Cian Nugent
Night Fiction

The album cover immediately tells you of the type of dusk-drenched folk that Cian Nugent is gonna deliver here on Night Fiction. Recorded in Dublin, the album contains much of Nugent’s simple guitar skills but also brings in a band with bass, drums, organ and vibes. All the instruments meld to create a fol...view item »

Woods
With Light And With Love

It’s unlikely Woods will ever make an unlistenable or bad album, I can’t see it happening. Generally, when reviewing Woods it’s a matter of assessing whether Jeremy Earl and the gang maintain their typically high standards from release to release. I think they go from strength to strength and, though evolution isn’t their...view item »

Woolen Men
Temporary Monument

Woolen Men make a lo-fi shouty indie-punkish kind of sound, and Temporary Monument arrives with an angry screed against what the band see as bourgeois mediocrity. So, why not fight back with loud music? It is, after all, a response that has worked well before. The LP is released by the Woodsist label....view item »

Herbcraft
Wot Oz

Herbcraft are a psychedelically-inclined group (no shit), and they recorded Wot Oz almost by accident. Originally the session was just a warm-up, but soon it turned out the jammed-out material was too good not to do something with. Sounds like the product of a mind overheated on a hot August afternoon: e.g. it sounds ve...view item »

Woods
At Echo Lake

What does go on with certain bands is that they're truly gifted enough to shift peoples perceptions of what they're about without compromising their overall sound that much. Woods are total flag bearers for a generation of young experimental yank-rock tykes with a pure DIY ethic similar to Mike Sniper of Blank Dogs. 'At Echo Lake' is just fu...view item »

Moon Duo
Escape

I'm a bit skeptical with the old Wooden Shjips. I saw them live once and they were terrifyingly tedious. Most of their recorded output does very little for me although I do like some bits of Volume 1. So it's a bit of a surprise how impressed I am by this new one from offshoot band Moon Duo, especially since the apple's fallen so close to the t...view item »

Simon Joyner
Grass, Branch & Bone

Simon Joyner worked his way up with a variety of alternative Americana heroes, making fractured folk music that sits along side Wilco's finest work and Will Oldham's most obscured masterpieces. With a distinctive voice with its own subtle twang and disregard for certain articulations, Joyner speaks the language of country w...view item »

John Andrews & The Yawns
Bit by the Fang

A little bit country, a little bit folk, John Andrews & The Yawns are a clear product of the states. As the colloquial grammar of Bit By The Fang attests, the album is steeped in the traditions of small towns and backwards regionalism. There’s more than a touch of Mac DeMarco in the mix too. Out on vinyl LP fr...view item »

Woods
Sun & Shade

I get to review the new Woods record by virtue of being the first to pounce on it in the box. It's my lucky day. This one's actually been spinning a few times in the office already, and it's totally great. The thing I love most about Woods is that nostalgic warmth and feeling of wellbeing that you get from their records and this one doesn't ...view item »

Skygreen Leopards
Family Crimes

The latest from Woodsist is album number three by The Skygreen Leopards, but it’s the first time I’ve got round to checking them out. Sorry Skygreen Leopards. It’s very pleasant stuff, a dreamy mixture of slacker indie, folk, psych-pop and lo-fi Americana where everything sounds slightly distant and reverbed and breathy. ...view item »

Matt Kivel
Days Of Being Wild

What is it with Woodsist and male singers singing in a slightly strained falsetto? I just about got to grips with this years Woods album because the songs were so damn strong but given the choice I’d have had the vocals in a lower register. Same with this album by singer songwriter Matt Kivel. I’m enjoying the laid back strummy ...view item »

Woods
Be All, Be Easy

Here’s a new 7” which sees Woods bid farewell to Rear House, the “home, recording studio, creative refuge and beloved shithole” from which they (and several other bands) have churned out a long line of superb records. One for the history books then. On the A side they’ve captured an alter...view item »

Jonathan Rado
Law And Order

Looking somewhat like a man with Adam Green’s permanently open-mouthed face topped off with a chunk of Syd Barrett’s curly hair, Jonathan Rado looks something like a heart-throb. Also his day job is in Foxygen so there you go. The opening track plods along, a drone like affair with heavy slabs of organ. Funny I should mention Adam Gr...view item »

Family Perfume Vol: 1&2

Clearly a man on a determined, inspired and romantic creative streak, Presley claimed to have 60 of these lo-fi gems completed before he arranged his final tracklist. I don't love every single track in this epic drag, but I do enjoy most of them very much. Some songs are quiet and gentle and folk-influenced, some are psychedelic and drugged out ...view item »

Woodsist are kranking 'em out at the mo. What with the new Ducktails record landing and now this beastie. Not heard White Fence before but they sound pretty interesting on first listen.

Sun Araw
Off Duty

Cruising of the back of the excellent 'On Patrol' LP 'Off Duty' acts as a companion piece and could prove to be Sun Araw's most consistent jams yet!

Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics

What is it with the US indie underground? Why is it they can't leave the 80s Brit post-punk/indie scene alone? I'm not moaning - this album is mint. Just lay back and from the offset listen to New Order stroking Felt in a dusty cupboard. Add some other soft, hazy mellow fabric of your choice and you've got a fine bizarre love triangle.

Golden Calves
Collection: Money Band + Century band

Woods
I Was Gone

The latest cut from Woods is a psychedelic romp. Its quite melodic, super lo-fi and wears its DIY credentials on its hand-drawn sleeve. The vocals are falsetto and sit nicely in its scratchy mix.

More carnage from Eat Skull this week taking the form of a Woodsist 7" single.

Jana Hunter
Carrion

Jana Hunter is one of that Devendra Banhart's crew and she has an LP/CD out called 'Carrion'. Really, I find this yank-psych-folk thing often very dreary & I must profess a slight weary dislike for this album. It's the affectation of the voice.
